Hairstyles in diff. Face Shapes

Determining of your face shape is essential. It is a basic way of choosing an appropriate haircut. Although most of the hairstylist will help you determine on what haircut suits on you before creating a style that compliments your shape and features, but it is also important to learn some insights on things to consider before decing on having a haircut done.

Alright, let's determine our face shape--reffer to the following:

Round face-
Full-looking face with a round chin and hairline. Widest point is at the cheeks and ears.

Square --
A strong, square jaw line and usually an equally square hairline.

Heart ---
Face is wide at the temples and hairline, narrowing to a small delicate chin.

Triangular ---
Reverse of the heart-shape . . . a dominant jaw line with narrowing at the cheek bone and temples.

Diamond ---
A cross between heart and a dramatic oval. Widest at the cheekbones, and narrow equally at the forehead and jaw line.

Oval ---
Only slightly narrower at the jaw line than at the temples, with a gently rounded hairline.

Rectangular or oblong ---
Long and slender, about the same width at forehead and just below cheekbones. May have a very narrow chin or a very high forehead.
