Greetings to you all. May you have a nice day ahead. This post has been in the works for a while now, though I finished writing it halfway already. Scrut back off the procrastinator alert I am, being a slow slob I was, is sure exhausting. Your face shape can significantly change how certain styles look on you. There are several basic face shapes and certain styles flatter each one of it. These basic shapes oval, round, square, diamond, heart, pear and oblong. Now sit back and think what is your face shape look like? You might need to grab a mirror.


ONE - Oval
The oval face shape is longer than wide, with a jaw that is narrower than the cheekbones. Because the oval shaped face is so proportional, this face shape looks good with about any hair style. Any length of cut looks great! Lucky to all of you who have this kind of face shape. 

TWO - Round
The round face shape is characterized by fullness below the cheekbones. These face shapes look great with longer hair that lengthens the face. Long layers are the most flattering for this face shape, where short layers can accentuate the roundness of the face. 

THREE - Square
The square face shape is characterized by a wide jawline. The square shaped face need height on top and narrowness at the sides. Deep side parts, texture, and soft bangs helps balance the square face shape. 

FOUR - Diamond
The diamond face shape is characterized by a narrow chin and forehead with wide cheekbones. Hair styles that work best with this face shape have narrower sides and fullness at the chin. This face shape can also add straight bangs to shorten the face.

FIVE - Heart
This face shape is characterized by a wider forehead and narrower chin. Adding side swept bangs to this style helps disguise the width of the forehead. Keeping the style fuller around the jaw helps to add weight to the narrower chin.

SIX - Pear
The pear face shape, which is also sometimes called a triangular face, is characterized by a small or narrow forehead and a larger jawline. Longer styles can help disguise the prominence of the jawline. 

SEVEN - Oblong/Rectangle
This face shape is characterized by a very long and narrow bone structure. Longer hair pulls the face down making it appear even longer. If you have an oblong face keep your style shorter or add shorter layers. Adding curls and body can make the face appear wider as well.

Now that you have seen the basic face shapes and some tidbits on what to consider when choosing a style for your unique face shape maybe you are set to style yourself according to your own face shapes. Extra credits goes to here.
