Almost everything you read in a magazine or anywhere else, asks you to determine your face shape in order to determine which hair style looks good on you, which colors, etc. For the longest time, I couldn’t figure out my face shape no matter how hard I tried! I wasn’t sure if it was oval or diamond shaped, so I decided to figure out exactly what each face shape entitled. So here is a little glossary on how to determine your face shape.

How to Determine Your Face Shape


Oval Face Shape

oval face shape

Curvilinear shape. Length is equal to one and a half times width, with forehead and jaw the same width. So think of the oval face shape as an egg.

Round face shape

round face shape
Circular shaped. Length is approx equal to width.

Oblong face shape

oblong face shape
Face is longer than it is wide with a long straight cheek line.

Square face shape

square face shape
Strong and broad forehead with angular jaw.

Heart face shape

heart face shape
Wide at the forehead and cheekbones, narrow at the jawline.

Diamond face shape

diamond face shape
Forehead and jawline are narrow with wide and high cheekbones.

Triangular face shape

triangular face shape
Forehead and cheekbones are narrow with a wide jawline.

So now that you know which face shape you have, you can go out and choose a hairstyle based on that shape, the right type of eyebrows to sport, and much more!
