If your face is oval (i.e., your jawline and forehead are longer than your cheekbones), a number four haircut might be the ideal solution. Additionally, this length makes taper fades a practical choice. A 4 haircut leaves a half inch of hair that can be styled into many different looks, while also not revealing much of your scalp, making it perfect for thin locks.
Number 4 Haircut
This haircut length is often utilized in fades to create a tapered effect. It may be used all over or mixed with one of the shorter options (1″, 2″, 3″) on either side for maximum visual impact and masculineness. For men experiencing hair loss, the undercut can also be an ideal style choice; its subtle nature helps minimize the contrast between bald spots and hair growth, and length prevents any scalp from showing through under bright light. However, this haircut is not advised for people with round or lean faces as it could make them appear slightly unbalanced and emphasize the roundness of their faces. Instead, balanced or square faces tend to work best with this cut.
Number 5 Haircut
The number 5 haircut leaves more than half an inch of hair, which allows for various styles such as side-parted hairstyles and fades. Additionally, this length makes an excellent cut for men looking for tapered styles without quite reaching skin sag status; similarly, it serves as the highest clipper guard used when creating crew cut styles, so this length often helps men who prefer shorter styles with good scalp coverage that do not require extensive styling efforts. It is low maintenance too.
Number 2 Haircut
The number 2 haircut is another half an inch long and excellent for those with longer locks. It provides excellent scalp coverage while being very simple to style – perfect for fade cuts as it’s easier to blend and taper! If you want something shorter than a buzz cut, starting from number two would be ideal as it leaves enough hair for classic styles such as the crew cut and buzz cut – plus, it can easily be styled into partings! It is also easy to maintain.
Number 3 Haircut
The number 3 haircut is among the shortest cuts you can get and is also known as the zero fades because of its taper style cut that gradually gets shorter towards the ears and neck area. A number 3 cut leaves about half an inch of hair strands on your head so that styling your hair into short or longer styles is possible; spikey styles may even work!
Number 8 Haircut
The number 8 standard clipper haircut length measures an inch or 25mm, offering an elegant short style balancing being short with having some texture to its look. It can be styled in various ways to suit different faces and works exceptionally well when combined with fades or side parts. Number 8 haircuts can also make for great faux hawk or punk styles, making the number 8 style perfect for creating faux hawks or other punk looks. When getting one done, be sure your barber or stylist understands what look you’re going for, and use StyleSeat’s directory of hair and style Pros to find one who fits. Also, describe any specific number systems or clipper guard sizes you would like so there are no miscommunication issues at the barbershop, and you can rock your new look confidently!
