1. Round Face:

Go for long sideburns that will break the roundness of your face. You can keep the length at mid-ear level and go longer if you think it looks good. Avoid bushy sideburns as they will only add more volume to your face.

2. Square Face:

Even for a square face, go for long sideburns. They can extend down till the end of the ear. This will narrow down your face and also give it another dimension.

3. Oval Face:

Medium length sideburns that end around mid-ear will compliment an oval face. Longer styles need to be avoided as they will only make your chin look pointy and make the length of your face even more prominent.

4. Triangular Face:

If you have a wide lower face then short sideburns can balance it out. You can also sport longer and tapered burns that will give the illusion of a narrower jaw.

5. Oblong Face:

If you have a long face then short sideburns will look nice. You can also experiment with long and thick sideburns to add volume to your narrow face and make it look wider.
