12 Natural Tapered Cuts According to Face Shape

Avatar • Feb 9, 2016

The tapered haircut is a big chopper’s dream.  The style is sleek, edgy, and instantly gives your face lift. There are, however, many variations to the infamous tapered cut. Deciding which style would most suit your face has a lot to do with understanding your face shape. The most common shapes are featured in the diagram below, however, you may find that your face may share characteristics of more than one of the shapes featured.

To help you determine your shape and which tapered style might suit you best, take a look at these ladies.

I loved this article!!!! I might be oval or round idk but I loved the focus on tapered cuts. I’m personally a fan of the grown out tapered cut.

I REALLY love that this article shows cuts for certain face shapes. I see this all the time for straight or wavy hair but not much for curly/kinky hair. It is greatly appreciated and please DO MORE! ??

I think I’m an oval or diamond. Love the cuts but would hate going to barber a lot to keep shape. Too lazy

I’m somewhere between oval (prominent cheekbones) and round (chubby cheeks). I’ve been wearing my tapered cut parted on the side to expose my silver patch (what can I say, I’m Rogue, lol)…but after seeing these pics I’m inspired to get rid of the part and take my ‘fro sky-high. Thanks for this article!

Ty for the article. Black hair sometimes get forgotten. But, where is the triangle face? Forehead the lesser in width and jaws the most.
