FTM Haircuts: 4 Styles To Suit Your Face Shape

4 Hairstyles For FTM Folks

If you’re beginning the process of transitioning, getting the right haircut will go a long way to helping you create a more masculine appearance.

It’s not just a matter of cutting your hair short. You also need to find a style that’s masculine and appropriate for the shape of your face. The following are four styles to suit your face shape.

  1. Oval-Shaped Face: Faces that are shaped like ovals are often considered to be the ideal shape for women. If you’re transitioning from female to male, having this face shape might present a bit of a challenge. The best way to make your oval-shaped face appear more masculine is to add volume to your hair and create angles. Wearing your hair short on the side, longer on the top, and with a part on the side is a great way to add masculinity to an oval face. You should also make sure to avoid having heavy bangs on your forehead, as that emphasizes the roundness of the face.
  2. Square-Shaped Face: With its strong jawline, chiseled look, and even proportions, a square-shaped face is usually seen as the masculine ideal. If you have this face shape, you should consider yourself lucky. A square-shaped face is an excellent foundation for a variety of styles that highlight your masculine features. You’ll look good in styles such as quiffs and buzz cuts. Full hair and deep side parts look especially good on square faces, but feel free to experiment thanks to the versatility of this face shape.
  3. Rectangular Face Shape: Falling between the oval and square, the rectangular face is the longest of the face shapes. Pompadours should be avoided if you have this shape. The key is to find a style that does not further elongate the shape of the face. If you have a rectangular face and want your hair to be long on top, make sure to keep the sides long as well. Having the sides too short will only exaggerate the length of your face. It’s best to opt for a well-proportioned style where the length of the sides and top are kept in balance. Side parts, slicked-back hair, and bangs on the forehead work well on those with this face shape.
  4. Round-Shaped Face: Having a face that’s rounded in shape can also be a challenge for those who have yet to undergo FTM surgical procedures. The curves of a rounded chin and lack of definition in the face causes your features to appear more feminine. But that doesn’t mean you can’t find a hairstyle that will work for you.If your face is rounded, look for hairstyles that create the illusion of structure through the use of height and angles. A style that’s short on the sides with height on the top, such as a pompadour or a flat top, would be ideal for you.
  5. The Importance Of Finding The Right FTM Hairstyle There are many ways to help your exterior match how you see yourself on the inside. Undergoing an FTM procedure is one of the most effective steps to take, but there are others that will accentuate the appearance you want. Finding the right hairstyle that works with your face shape while emphasizing your masculine characteristics can also have a significant impact on your self-image as you complete your FTM transition.
