Do you ever wonder why a style can look great on one person then fall flat on someone else? Just like dressing for your body type and using contouring to accentuate your facial features, the right haircut can be used to highlight your face shape and tone down areas of your bone structure when needed.
To find your face shape, you can use a ruler and measure the widths of your brow, cheekbones and jawline. Then measure the length of your face from forehead to chin.
Square and round faces: Your brow, cheekbone, and jaw width are roughly the same and are equal to the length of your face. If your chin is more angular, its square, softer, its round.
Oval face: Is the length of your face longer than the width of your cheekbones? Your face is most likely oval shaped.
Heart Shaped: Your cheekbones and brow are wider than your jawbone and your chin comes down to a point.
