How To Identify Face Shape
There are seven face shapes that we must know about: Oval, Round, Heart/Inverted Triangle, Oblong/Rectangular, Square, Pear/Triangle, and Diamond. Here are some simple tips on how to know your face shape.
- Pull your hair back with hair pins or a headband to push back all hair off the face.
- Ask someone to click your picture while you sit straight facing the camera. Make sure your hairline shows, and print it out. Or, lay a piece of tracing paper over the mirror and outline the reflection of your face.
- Compare the face shape and choose the one that matches the closest. It doesn't matter how soft, hard or small or big your face shape is.
- Check your face both 'at rest' and while smiling. Do keep in mind that face shapes can alter over the years, or with changes in health and weight.
