Which hairstyle suits me? Here is how to find the best hairstyle for your face shape. Face shapes and hairstyles are a tricky topic. This video shows you how to find your face shape among the 6 main face shapes, with an easy test method.
Then I describe each shape (oval, square, round, heart, diamond and long) and how to recognize it.
Once you know which shape your face has, I give you tips on how to get a hairstyle that suits your face.
This knowledge is not a "rule" that everyone should follow: it is the guidance based on which you can make informed decisions about getting bangs or not, choosing a hair length, styling, etc...
Thumbs up if you liked this video!

  • Oval and long faces are not the same. Taylor Swift does not have an oblong face. Also neither do you. I'm pretty sure you've a diamond face. You have cheekbones. I'm a long flat face.

  • I have hair loss from chemo; permanent damage to the hair follicles. My hair now only grows to around the middle of my ears and stops, though the back grows a bit longer down my neck, and I have permanent bald areas. I also have a VERY square jawline and, although I used to play with hair length, always look and feel best with my hair around my shoulders. Now I am stuck with pixie cuts for the rest of my life and I don't feel or look like "myself" to me. Even though I've been trying to recreate myself and my look/style including hair since 2014, I cannot look good to myself and my hair is one of the keys to looking and feeling like myself. And sure, people suggest wigs. These are people who don't wear wigs regularly so they don't understand the challenges related to that, esp to wear on a daily basis. Just, nope. We cannot all look the way we wish to look. If we see someone on the street and think they'd look better with longer hair, we may be right. And they may not be able to grow their hair long enough, healthy enough, to achieve a better look. Of course it may have nothing to do with illness and its cures, but I know a lot of women who suffer the same as I do, and it's incredibly frustrating to not be able to find a comfortable look we can accept as our Self.

  • I'm really confused. So the thing is my face is oval? But due to the fact that I have larger forehead and also that my bones r larger than normal people my face I think is longer? I still have baby fat on my face (I'm in early teens) so it makes my face looks like a rectangle. But my mom said my baby fat will go eventually then my face looks kinda like a circle but longer. I have prominent jawline like heart shaped bit not pointed chin instead I have straight up flat chin.

  • Jennifer Aniston doesn’t have heart shaped face, it’s too narrow for that. Her chin sticks out but it’s not a sign. She has wide chin, narrow forehead that she hides with hair. Her cheeks are more wider than forehead. There should be another type for this one. She has quite manly face, actually.

  • This is the most helpful dissection of Face Shape that I have seen in all my years. Thank you for giving the practical tips, the reality of the face shape and not just a shape superimposed over a face that usually just looks oval every time. It’s really frustrating to have a mixed shaped face, and try and fit yourself into a category. At least this gives more criteria.

  • Isn't it possible to be a mix of two types or something like that? I honestly can't really tell by looking myself at the mirror, if I'm wehther round shape or heart shape(I think I'm no way diamond shape but who knows). Like, if I look at myself on different mirrors my face can look more rounded and short or a little longer and like heart shaped. And It also depends on how I carry my eyebrows. I kind of have widow's peak(I'm not sure if I'm saying it right) but it's very subtle but it's there. My forehead is wide but right now I'm looking myself at a mirror and looks like my cheekbones are a little more wider but that also can be because of my bags lol. And also cheekbones are wider than my jaw and jaw goes like squarish but rounded but more squarish as well does it make sense? To put and example of a famous person that comes to mind with a similar type of shape as mine is Penelope Cruz face shape, wich I had read she has a round heart shape or maybe she's just round faced and I'm just round faced too lol but this is confusing to determine for yourself sometimes. Can anyone help me??? Pleasee It's been such a long time since I want to know what face shape is mine.

    • If your cheekbones are wider then your jaw then you can be a diamond , and if your cheekbones and forehead are wider than your jaw , you have a heart shaped face i hope i kinda helped👍

  • Diamond face shape here. I don't agree with the "adding up top." If anything you want to add on the sides of your face and avoid too much volume on top as that tends to accentuate the diamond peek making the face look extra long and unbalanced.

Also, I hate having long hair and always love pixie haircuts. And common hairstyles recommendation for diamond face includes pixie haircuts. Oh wow! This is just blowing my mind!

I used to think that I was round-faced, but after following your exercise from the video, I found that I am not. I am actually oval. I am going to have to warm up this idea after thinking the opposite all these years.
