7 Common Face Shapes

While no two faces are alike, they do have similar shapes. Here are the seven basic face shapes and the hairstyles that go with them.


Examine yourself in the mirror: are your cheekbones higher than your chin? You most likely have an oval face shape. Congratulations if you have an oval face! You've hit the jackpot when it comes to face shapes. Oval-faced people typically have very symmetrical faces. This means you can wear any hairstyle you want. You can add soft layers around specific features of your face, such as your eyes, cheekbones, lips, or chin, to draw attention to them.


People with round faces typically have a wide hairline and full cheeks below the cheekbones, so avoid short hairstyles if you have a round face. Short hairstyles will draw attention to the roundness of your face, making it appear larger than it is. Long hairstyles that elongate and flatter your face are ideal. Do you want layers? Long layers beneath your jawline are ideal. Shorter layers will draw attention to the roundness of your face. Bangs that are side-swept or straight-cut can also add dimension to a round face.


A square face has nearly equal length and width. You probably have a square face if your forehead is almost as wide as your chin and your chin blends into your jawline. People with square-shaped faces need to add height to their appearance to elongate their faces because of their squared-off appearance. Deeper side sections, texture, and soft bangs will all help to balance out this face shape.


A diamond face shape has a narrow chin, a narrow forehead, and wide cheekbones. Have you a widow's peak and a small chin? You might have a diamond-shaped face. Bobs are ideal for this hairstyle because they do not "drag" your face down. A diamond-shaped face can benefit from bangs and face-contouring layers. Do you prefer a longer appearance? Ponytails and ballerina bobs complement diamond-faced women.


This face shape is distinguished by a broad forehead and a narrow chin. People with heart-shaped faces typically have a very broad brow. Use side swept bangs or layers near your cheekbones to narrow your brow. Layers around your jawline will give a narrow jaw more weight and fullness.


A triangular face is another name for a pear-shaped face. A pear face has a small, narrow forehead and a broad jawline. Do you have a pear-shaped face and want to conceal a prominent chin? You can go for a long, layered haircut. If you want a shorter hairstyle, you can add volume and fullness to your face with some root lifts.


A long and narrow bone structure distinguishes oval faces. These people have the same chin width, cheekbones, and forehead. Longer hairstyles can make these faces appear longer by pulling them down. Choose a hairstyle that is medium in length or shorter, with short layers around the face. Curly or wavy hairstyles complement people with rectangular faces. They give your face width and dimension.

What determines the shape of your face?

Your jawline shape can further determine your face shape—if it's short or rounder, your face is round. If your jawline is pointy and narrow, your face is heart-shaped. If you have a strong jawline with sharp angles, that's further evidence your face is square.

Which face shape is best?

The oval face is often considered the ideal shape. The proportions are balanced and the cheekbones and jaw are lightly rounded. It is the most common face shape.

What is the most unique face shape?

Diamond. The diamond shaped face is the rarest of face shapes, and is defined by a narrow forehead, wide cheekbones and a narrow chin. Diamond shaped faces are usually narrower at the eye line and jaw line, with high and often dramatic cheekbones.
