To determine your face shape, use a tape measure to record the width of your cheekbones, your jaw line and your forehead. Also measure the length of your face. Compare your measurements to the following guidelines.
An oval face features a face length that is 1.5 times greater than the width. A round face is equally long and wide, while an oblong face is slightly longer than it is wide. A heart-shaped face has a narrow chin and a broad forehead or cheekbones. A diamond-shaped face is widest at the cheekbones, but it has a narrow forehead and jaw. Determining facial shape can help you find an ideal hairstyle and clothing styles.
