What Is My Face Shape?
So, at this point, you’re probably wondering what your face shape is. Before you can find your most flattering hairstyle in Beverly Hills, CA, you need to identify what your face shape is. Most people believe their faces are simply round. When determining your face shape, you should be looking at your hairline, width and length of your face, and jawline. The easiest way to figure out what face shape you have is to pull your hair back and trace the outline of your face. Try measuring your face, focusing on the widths of your brow, cheekbones and jawline, and the length of your face from your forehead to your chin.
You Should Fall Within One Of Six Categories
Oval: Forehead may be slightly wider than the chin, and the length of the face is about one and a half times the width.
Round: Prominent, rounded cheeks with equal width and length of the face.
Square: Prominent jaw and square chin, forehead and jawline roughly the same width.
Oblong: Often confused for the oval face, though an oblong face will have a longer shape that is not as wide as oval - often with a narrow chin.
Heart: Wider forehead and cheekbones with a narrow jawline and chin.
Diamond: Narrow forehead and jawline with cheekbones at the widest point of the face.
