Why knowing your face shape is important…do you know it?
It is important to know your face shape because knowing this information will help you determine the:
- Best hair cut to complement your face shape
- Ideal glasses for your face shape
- Preferred hair styles to highlight your look
- Best makeup techniques to use to bring out every positive feature of your natural bone structure and camouflage the less favorable ones.
You may be wondering why the above listed information is even a factor, well very simply because every factor in our life involves our image or appearance, whether we like it or not. I’m sure this is not news to you as it is common place to hear about first impressions. Your first impression can determine whether you make a new friend, a new enemy, get a new job or a promotion. When you know the shape of your face, you can make decisions that help build the impression/image you want to bring forth.
Here’s a quick guide on how to determine the shape of your face:
A square face has an angular jaw and square chin. You have a square face if your forehead is roughly the same width as the cheekbones and your chin.
Long faces tend to have a prominent chin. If your faces is longer than it is wide, that’s a significant indicator that you have a long face shape.
Someone with an oval face shape has a forehead that is slightly wider than the chin, and the width of the face is about 1/3 less than the length of your face.
Round faces are just as wide as they are long with prominent round cheeks and softly rounded forehead and chin.
