A Quick Guide to Choosing A Perfect Haircut for Your Face Shape

Your face shape is one of the most crucial things that you need to consider when choosing a haircut. It can be tempting to opt for the latest trend. Or you may want to choose a certain haircut on your favorite celebrity. But before you decide on a hairstyle or cut, it’s important to make sure that it suits your face. Otherwise, it is not going to be all you dreamed of. 

Choosing a haircut that flatters your face shape will make you look great from every angle. Below, we are going to discuss how you can find a haircut that is ideal for your face. So, let’s get started. 

Determine Your Face Shape

Before you choose a haircut or hairstyle, you need to determine what your face shape is. First of all, take a look at the following facial features:

1. Forehead

Take the measurement of your forehead. Measure the length from the peak of one eyebrow arch to the peak of the opposite one. 

2. Jawline

Take a flexible tape measure and measure the length from the tip of your chin to below your ear and multiply it by two. It will help you get your jawline measurement.

3. Face Length

Measure the length from the tip of your chin to the middle of your hairline. 

4. Cheekbones

Take your tape and measure the length from below the outer corner of one eye to below the outer corner of another eye. 

Once you are done with taking all the measurements, consider following the tips below to identify your face shape. 

  • Oval Face Shape

You have an oval-shaped face if you have a forehead that is the same width as the jawline and a round chin. The best haircuts for an oval face include long layered with bangs, straight bangs, feather haircuts, etc.

  • Diamond Face Shape

A diamond face shape features a thin prominent chin line and an elongated forehead. The best haircuts for diamond face shape include swept side bangs, angled bobs, long layered with bangs, etc. 

  • Square Face Shape
