Stand in front of the mirror and look at the full outline of your face. Use something that can be easily removed from the mirror surface, a bar of soap or lipstick for example, and trace the outline of your face onto the mirror to identify your face shape

Confirm your face shape

Generally speaking, most of us have 5 face shapes: Oval , Square, Triangular, Round, Diamond.



Choose a wig for your face shape

A good wig always adds more beauty to you. Read these pictures, whichever face shape will get her beloved wigs.

Oval - many choices

As its name implies, the oval-shaped face is longer than wide, with a jaw that is narrower than the cheekbones. Because the oval shaped face has no dominant areas and is so proportional, this face looks good with just about any hairstyle, length or texture.

Round - avoid width

The round-shaped face has a wide hairline and fullness below the cheekbones. The client may be overweight and the neck may appear short. A geometric or linear style looks very good. Add height and long wispy sides to make the cheeks look narrow. Sides and nape comb close.

Diamond - reduce width at sides

The diamond-shaped face has a narrow chin and forehead with wide cheekbones. Diamond shaped faces need narrow sides and fullness at the chin. Bobs work very well. Avoid height on top or volume on the sides. Use some fringe or bangs to cover narrow forehead.

Triangular(heart)- add volume at cheekbone/chin

The heart-shaped face is characterized by a wider forehead and a narrower chin. Bring some hair onto the forehead to disguise its width. Keep hair close to the head at the eyes but make it slightly full around the jaw, and below and in front of the earlobes.

Square - add straight lines

The Square Shaped Face is characterized by a wide hairline and jaw. Square shaped faces need height on top and narrowness at the sides. Comb the hair off the forehead to add height to the face. Curly texture and wisps of hair around the face break the wide, straight lines common to the square face.
