What’s My Face Shape?

Start with a flexible tape measure. Take the following four measurements. Record each.

01.

Forehead:

02.

Cheekbones:

Measure horizontally across the width of your cheekbones, starting and ending at the pointiest part below the outer corner of each eye. =__________ inches.

03.

Jawline:

Measure angularly from the tip of your chin to below your ear at the point at which your jaw angles upwards. Multiply this number by two = __________ inches x 2 = __________ inches.

04.

Face Length:

Measure vertically down your nose from the center of your hairline to the tip of your chin = __________ inches.

Note which is the largest of the four measurements. Compare this to the following seven profiles to determine your face shape:

  1. Oval: Face length is larger than width of cheekbones, and forehead is larger than the jawline. Angle of jaw is rounded rather than sharp.
  2. Square: All measurements are fairly similar. Angle of jaw is sharp rather than rounded.
  3. Rectangle: Face length is largest measurement. Forehead, cheekbones, and jawline are similar in size.
  4. Round: Cheekbones and face length are a similar measurement. Both are larger than forehead and jawline, which also have a similar measurement. Angle of jaw is soft and much less defined.
  5. Diamond: Face length measurement is largest. Then, in descending order, cheekbones, forehead, and smallest is jawline. Chin is pointed.
  6. Heart: Forehead measurement larger than cheekbones and jawline. Chin is pointed.
  7. Triangular: Jawline measurement larger than cheekbones, which measures larger than forehead.
