Here is a brief guide about how to choose the best haircut that flatters and frames your face to perfection.

What Defines the Face Shape?

Essentially, the face shape defines the cut you must choose for yourself. In order to define the right shape, you will require a flexible tape measure to take the following measures. 

The Forehead

Measure the distance between the peaks of your eyebrows.

The Cheekbones

Place a measure on the pointiest part of your face below the outer corner of the eyes. 

The Face Length

Measure the distance between the middle of the hairline to the tip of the chin.

The Jawline

Place the measure from the tip of the chin to the point below your ear that angles the jaw upwards. Double that number and you will get an accurate measurement of your jawline.

Common Face Shapes

Once the measurements are taken, you can figure out the feature that is the largest in size and then compares it to the main profiles to figure out the shape of your face. Here are the common face profiles:


For a rectangular face, the face length is the largest in measurement while the forehead, jawline, and cheekbones have similar sizes.


The triangular face has a jawline that exceeds the length of the cheekbones and measures larger than the forehead. 


A round face has cheekbones and face length in similar measures. Both the features are larger than the jawline and the forehead with a soft, less defined jaw. 


The oval is the most celebrated shape with face length greater than the width of the cheekbones and the jawline being smaller than the forehead. The jawline is rounded and less defined. 


A square face has fairly similar measurements. The angle of the jaw is sharp instead of round.


The face length is the largest in a diamond-shaped face and the other features are in descending order from cheekbones, forehead, a small jawline, with a pointed chin. 


The heart shape has a forehead the measures larger than the jawline and cheekbones and the chin is also pointed. 

Every face cut requires different hair lengths and layers to define the features. This is why we suggest our readers consult a professional before making any drastic changes to their hair such as a transforming color treatment or chopping down the majority of your hair.
