Facial Shapes & Head Sizing

The "Oval" shaped face is longer with a narrow jaw. This face shape is evenly proportioned and works well with just about any hairstyle, length, or texture.



The "Round" shaped face requires added height to narrow the width of the face and lengthen the neck. The hair should be combed close to the sides of the face and at the nape.



The "Square" shaped face requires height on top and narrowness at the sides. The wide jaw can be softened with curly textures and wisps of hair around the face.



The "Oblong" shaped face has a very long and narrow bone structure. A fringe or slight bang, and soft waves or curls in the crown and nape areas help to soften and create the illusion of an oval.



The "Heart" shaped face has a wider forehead and a narrower chin. A fringe over the forehead will soften the width. The hair should sit close to the head at eye level and then fill out slightly from the ears to the jaw.



The "Pear" shaped face has a small or narrow forehead and a wider, larger jaw. Hair should be combed to add width around the eyes and through the crown, then smoothed close to the head on the sides and at the nape.



The "Diamond" shaped face is narrow at the forehead and the chin, with wide cheekbones. Bob styles work well for this shape and a fringe or bang helps to cover the narrow forehead.
