Determine your face shape by simple measurements

 Hey girls,
Have you ever checked your face shape? Before you go for a good hairstyle, knowing your face shape is very important you know. It helps selecting the right hairstyle which rightly suits your face. Many celebrity hairstyles which we often feel tempted to copy, may not just suit our face! It is simply because the shape of your face doesn’t compliment a particular hair style. So, how to find out what’s your face shape? It has a simple formula based on measurements which you yourself can find out and decide your hairstyle accordingly.
Follow these steps:

Stand in front of a big mirror with a tape. You have to take 4 measurements with this tape and note it down.

what is my face shape

1. Length of one cheekbone to other cheekbone: Place the tape on your cheekbone Starting from the outer corner of one eye, to other eye. Note down the length “A”.

2. Jawline: Place the tape below your ear and measure the length along jawline till middle of your chin. Double this length by multiplying it by 2 so that you get total jawline length “B”.

3. Forehead: Place the tape on the widest portion of your forehead. Run the tape to the opposite point and note the measurement “C”.

4. Total face length: sorry there is a mistake in picture above (my self drawn picture). The measurement should start from the mid of your hairline, following nose bridge, to the tip of your chin, note the length “D”.

Results: 1. You have Oval face if D (face length) = 1 ½ times A (breadth of face)
