Before you decide on a new hairstyle, take a look at the shape of your face. Some styles are better than others for the shape of your face.

There are six face shapes: Oval, oblong, round, square, diamond and heart-shaped. The most flattering hairstyles enhance the prominent features of these various shapes.

Step 1: Measure your face

With your hair pulled back off your face, stand before a mirror in a well-lit room. Measure your face with a tape measure as follows:

Measure your face across the widest points of your forehead, the tops of your cheekbones and your jawline, then measure your face from your hairline to your chin.

Step 2: Determine your face shape

Oval Your face is widest at the cheekbones and you have a tapered narrow jawline.

Oblong Your face is longer than it is wide, like a rectangle. Your jawline is rounded.

Square…You have a prominent, angular jawline and your face is about the same height and width.

Diamond… Your face is slightly longer than it is wide. Your chin is pointy and your high-set cheekbones are the widest part of your face.

Round…Your face — widest at the cheekbones — is nearly as wide as it is long and your jawline is round and full.

Heart-shaped Your face is wide at the forehead, full at the cheekbones and narrow at the chin.

Step 3: Find others with your face shape

Google “celebrities with round faces,” (or whatever your face shape). Check out images of the celebs with similar face shapes and look for flattering hairstyles you’d like to try.

Step 4: Share hairstyle photos with your stylist

Together, you and your hairstylist can figure out which hairstyles work not only for your face shape, but also for your unique hair type and texture.
