What is my Face Shape?

Use this page to help define what your face shape is. It is important to know what your face shape is so that you can choose the perfect hairstyle to flatter your face.

Start by pulling back your hair into a pony tail or pinning it back so your hairline is visible. Take a photo of yourself or have someone take one for you straight on. I used my computers camera and photoshop to outline my face. (please excuse the lack of make-up!)
