Face Shape Analysis

How To Work Your Face Shape

To start all you need is a tape measure.
Take the following measurements of your face and write each one of them down.

  • Measure your face from the tip of your hairline to the bottom of your chin
  • Measure across your jaw line from the widest point to the widest point
  • Measure across your forehead from the widest point to the widest point
  • Measure across the top of your cheekbones from the widest point to the widest point

Usually it is not very easy to determine your face shape yourself.  Ask a friend to help you or talk to your stylist. It is also quite possible that you don’t fit exactly into one of the major face categories. You can be in between two face shapes or your face could be unbalanced.  Your goal is to choose a style that will emphasize your best features and compliment the shape of your face. Chose haircuts that are comfortable and easy to maintain.

The 6 major face shapes are:
OVAL
SQUARE
OBLONG
DIAMOND
HEART
ROUND
