How to Determine Your Face Shape?
Did you know that you could find the perfect frame based on the shape of your face? Our faces can be categorized into four different shapes: oval, round, heart-shaped or square. Knowing which category your face shape falls into, can help you choose the most flattering haircut, but most importantly it will guide you when shopping for the perfect glasses.
So, let’s get started. You will need a flexible tape measure, mirror, pen and paper. Make sure your hair is pulled back from your face. Follow the four simple steps below and then check out our guide to determine your face shape and frame suggestions that are just right for you.
- Step 1:
Measure the width of your forehead, exactly in the middle of your hairline and eyes.
- Step 2:
Measure the width of your cheekbones, aligning the flexible measuring tape right underneath your eyes to measure the distance between the exterior of each eye.
- Step 3:
Measure your jawline starting from underneath your right ear, where your jawline begins, to the middle of your chin and then multiply that number by 2.
- Step 4:
Measure the length of your face, from your hairline to the tip of your chin.
All done? Now, the fun part! Gather your measurements and use the information to find the frame that best suits your face shape.
