Which Face Shape Are You?

1.     Pull your hair back off your face by wetting it or tying it back. 2.     Draw an outline of your face with lipstick on a mirror or on transparent paper or on a photo. 3.     Now compare your outline to the below:

Oval - Length equals around one and a half times width. As oval is considered to be the ideal face shape it is therefore the most versatile, so nearly every hair style will look good on this face.

Round - Round hairline and chin line, wide face and round cheeks If you have a round face shape, the goal here is to slim the face. Hair below the chin line should be worn with a face-lengthening center parting.

Square - Straight hairline, angular jaw with wide face Your hairstyle should try to soften the sharp angle of your jaw line and minimize a squared-off forehead look.

Triangular or Pear - Wide chin and narrow forehead When choosing a style for this face shape, you should seek on a look that narrows the chin and widens the forehead to balance proportions.

Heart - Narrow jaw line, wider at eyes If this is your face shape, you'll want a hairstyle that extenuates the jaw line and narrows at the eyes. Heart shape faces need a softer, curly style.

Oblong - Long and slender, about the same width at forehead and cheekbones. For this face shape you should add width and fullness to the sides of the face and around the eyes, cheekbones and ears.
