your best hairstyles


With all the many hairstyles out there, sometimes it's hard to determine which ones will work for you. Knowing my face shape (diamond) has helped so much in narrowing the selection down to only the hairstyles that are flattering for my shape. I was able to find out what my shape is from a cosmetology friend, but there is a simple way to find out your face shape at home!

Do you have a shape that is oval, square, round, oblong, heart, or triangular? Check out these videos and resources to find out:

Here's another resource for finding your face shape.

Now that you know your face shape, you can look at some hairstyling tips that are tailored for you:

My face is...

Round Face Shape:

Circular shaped. Length is approximately equal to width.

Oval Face Shape:
Curvilinear shape. Length is equal to one and a half times width, with forehead and jaw the same width.

Oblong Face Shape:

Face is longer than it is wide with a long straight cheek line.

Heart Face Shape:

Wide at the forehead and cheekbones, narrow at the jawline.

Diamond Face Shape:
Forehead and jawline are narrow with wide and high cheekbones.

Triangular Face Shape:
Forehead and cheekbones are narrow with a wide jawline.

Square Face Shape:
