Are you aware of the possible face shape hairstyles you have to consider? With an almost inexhaustible choice of changing hair styles, are you sure you know the right hairstyle shape for your face?

Our face shape hairstyles section will help you. How can you decide which hair cut is right for you? Why not make use of a technique used by stylists everywhere: choosing new hair styles for your face shape. Stylists have been making use of this trick for years! It's how they can tell in advance what hair cuts will look best on you. The best hairstyles for your face shape are not only good, but generally fashionable cuts. They are specially geared to work with your unique bone structure in a way that flatters your features as well as you hair.

Great hairstyles for your face shape will minimize the elements of your appearance that put you out of balance. They make long chins and high foreheads look shorter, round cheeks look slimmer. So how do you go about choosing hairstyles for your face shape?

The first key to figuring out the perfect hairstyles for you face shape is to find out what grouping you fall into: Oval, Round, Oblong, Heart, Square or Diamond.

You can find out what group you fall into by making a series of measurements.

  1. Measure across the top of your cheekbones at the widest point.
  2. Measure across your forehead at the widest point.
  3. Measure across your jaw line at the widest point
  4. Measure from the edge of your hairline to the bottom of your chin.

Once you've done that, use those measurements to fit yourself into one of the categories below:


Length is equal to one and a half times your width.


Length measurement more or less matches you width measurement. Both your forehead and jaw width should be narrower than the cheekbone width.


Oblong, or rectangle is significantly longer than it is wide.


Much narrower at the jaw line than at the cheekbones or forehead.


As wide as you are long.


Widest at the cheekbones, with their jaw and forehead measurements being approximately the same as each other, and much narrower than the cheekbones.

Now that you've figured out what category you belong to, read on to find out what cuts will suit you best!
