It is incredible the power that something as seemingly insignificant as sideburns have when it comes to making our face more or less attractive in the eyes of people. As with the hairstyle, the ideal and most flattering shape of the sideburns should be marked by the shape of our face, and not our personal preferences, as is often the case. Start by looking at yourself in the mirror carefully and objectively. Do you think your face is oval or elongated?
Grow the sideburns until they exceed the middle of the ear if your face is oval, just like Niall Horan does. This will help harmonize the shape of your face, as the longer the sideburns, the narrower your face will appear. Find your ideal length between the middle of the ear and the lobe. Lower down the lobe, no, unless you're shooting a period movie or you're in a rockabilly group.
Men with a long face should make their sideburns shorter if you want to make your face shape more pleasing to the eye. And the fact is, the shorter they are, the wider your face will appear. But remember, never shave the entire temple, as that will cause a very strange and unflattering effect. Copy Olly Alexander and leave at least half an inch. It is one thing to wear short sideburns and quite another, not to have sideburns.
If you think that the shape of your face is harmonious, that is, neither too oval nor too elongated, the first thing is to thank your parents for having transmitted such good genetic information to you. Jokes aside, we advise you to opt for the standard length (half of the ears), millimeter up, millimeter down, although really, people with an optimal face shape favor any style of sideburns.
