Knowing your face shape before choosing a haircut or hairstyle can be the difference between a great look






and a disaster.




How to Find your Face Shape

You can find out what your face shape is by pulling your hair back and taking a picture of yourself. Upload the picture to your computer and use a program to outline your face. No program? Print the picture out and outline your face with a marker. If you don’t have a computer or camera, go to the mirror, and outline your face using an erasable marker. Human face shapes do not always fit into just one face shape category: oval, round, square, oblong, and heart shape.

I came to the finding that im inbetween a round face when I have weight on but MOSTLY a Oval Shape I tend to have no problems with ANY hair style..






Oval Face Shapes

Also Megan Fox

An oval face shape is said to be the ideal face shape because the shape of the face is perfectly proportioned. People with an oval shaped face can usually pull off any hairstyle with ease.

Tips for Oval Face Shapes


■Find your best facial feature and highlight it with your hair cut. For example, with layers.
■If your hair is curly, try to keep it at least at shoulder length.
■Short layers will add height to the top of your head, which could make your face appear longer than it actually is. If you want short layers, make sure your hair is full at the sides.
■Pixie haircuts, bobs, wavy, straight, and long hairstyles should all look great on oval face shapes



Round Face Shapes

Also Jennifer Hudson

The characteristics of having a round face are usually soft facial features, such as a round chin. Round faces usually do not have angular features and have a fullness at and below the cheekbones. The round shaped face is the rarest face shape.

Tips for Round Face Shapes

■Layers that frame your face will help slenderize it.
■Height at the roots help to elongate your face.
■If you have long hair, a high ponytail will usually look good on you.
■Blunt and heavy bangs will take away from the height of your face, making it appear shorter.
■Avoid chin length hair cuts, they will draw attention to the roundness of your face and cheeks.
■If you wear your hair long, that is good, because it helps to add height to your face. If you want layers,
■If you wear your hair short, try parting your hair on the side or cutting short layers to add fullness.
■Shoulder length bobs, long or medium length hair, long hair, side swept bangs are a few of the styles that will look good on a round face shapegood on a round face shape.


Square Face Shape


The best way to tell a square shaped face is a square shaped hairline and squared shaped jawline. Your jawline, eyebrow bone, and cheekbones are about the same width. You want to look for a haircut that will soften your features.

Tips for Square Face Shapes

■Waves and curls soften the sharp angles of square faces.
■Wispy layers around your jaw and chin often help to soften angles.
■Blunt and heavy bangs will take away from the height of your face, making it appear shorter.
■Long hairstyles are best for this face type. Try layering your long hair and avoid center parts if it is one length.
■If your hair is short, try cutting short layers to add height to your hair. More height helps to elongate your face.
■Try to avoid hairstyles and haircuts that make your sides bulky, it will make your face appear wider.



Oblong Face Shape

Tips for Oblong Face Shapes

■Extremely short cuts, long cuts, and cuts that frame your face should be avoided, they will elongate your face.
■Long and straight hairstyles will make your face appear longer than it is. Try cutting bangs, they can be blunt, wispy, heavy fringed, or side swept.
■Curls, shoulder length haircuts, and chin length bob haircuts are great for oblong shaped faces because they create width.


Oblong, or long, shaped faces are more long than they are wide. The forehead, jaw line, and cheekbone are about equal in width. You want to pick a hairstyle that will make your face appear shorter and fuller.



Heart Face Shape



Heart shaped faces are the easiest to spot and the most common face shape. The characteristics of this face shape are a well defined chin and fullness through the cheekbones and temples. You want a haircut that makes your forehead appear less wide and your chin to appear fuller and wider.

Tips for Heart Face Shapes

■Avoid blunt cut bangs. Instead, go for wispy bangs. Side parts and side swept bangs look great on you too.
■Long wavy hair is always a great look for heart shape faces.
■Fullness at the sides of your head are ideal because they narrow your jaw. Fullness on the top of your head is not ideal because it makes you look a little top heavy.
■Hair shorter than your chin generally does not look good. Try a jawline length bob.

Heres some of my Hair Styles

Had a few other questions Supastar this is for you hope this is a good guide for you!




Ok so Supastar as you can see I included a few different hairstyles that Kelly has worn.I personally feel she doesnt look bad but the more flattering of them are the shorter & the longer style with the layers. Shes has long shape face & between a oval shape as well.Thisis where your judgement will come in you can MIX both guides.I feel with long or short layers to fit the frame of your face is KEY! Hope this is helpful DIva send me pics!!
