Well, Downey's other features are near perfect by the classical definition (EVERYTHING MUST BE 1.618 TIMES EVERYTHING ELSE), so he can get away with pretty much anything he wants. My face is a good shape, but my other features lend an imbalance to my face that's easily disturbed with extra topiary.
If you want a good example of that, look at some 'fashion' haircuts and imagine how they'd look on someone who wasn't super attractive. The result is normally dire. If a haircut looks bad on a model, then never, ever touch it.
Tl;dr: Different rules apply to celebrities as to normal people.
Hey Delp, can you suggest a cool haircut for me?
Kgaiz, just make a facial hair thread or something. I smell a Jube/Haya nearby, so let's get some pics in here.
Pull your hair back and take a photo and I can try
I should have gotten a photo taken today, as I decided to rock a fauxhawk and it was ... Something.
Fauxhawks are so 2005, darling
This is me when I was employed
This is me now
PICTURES, MOFUCKAS! DAFUCK YA'LL DOIN.
*edit, ah good.
Shave the facial hair. It's not heavy enough to take seriously, you look like either a stoner or a student. Or both, I guess. You have a good facial shape, although it's more like a 1.5:1 width:length ratio than 1.6; a tad rounder than an oval.

The other big trend in men's hair this year is the 'mad men' conservative haircut. Good for getting jobs, because it's fairly professional, and keeps hair out of your face.
Alternately, you can do what I did and get a crop top or short back-and-sides: both classic haircuts that are acceptable and versatile.
Wat. Pompadours ain't hipstar. Dey groosester. B)
