Deciding on your ‘do on the day you say “I do” is a very stressful decision to make. The pictures last a life time and from necklines to jewelry there are a lot things to take into consideration. One of the most important things to consider when choosing your hairstyle, though, is your face shape. Many women out there are not sure what their face shape would be categorized as, so they tend to end up picking an unflattering hairstyle. Good news, brides-to-be (or any of you who aren’t sure what your face shape is)! We’re here to help you not only figure out which face shape you have, but also which hairstyles will accentuate your lovely features. Define your face shape below, then see which hairstyles will be best for you in the slideshow above!
Round: Your cheekbones are roughly the same width as the length of your face and your jawline is soft.
Heart: Your forehead and cheekbones are both wide, but your face tapers at the chin.
Oval: You have an oval face if the width of your face is 1/3 less than the length of your face. You also have no harsh corners along the hair or jawline.
Square: Your forehead and jawline are wide and roughly the same size, creating beautiful corners of the face.
Long: You have a face that is longer and more narrow, and your cheekbones are the most prominent feature.
Pro Tip: If you’re still confused, pull your hair into a ponytail and stand in front of the mirror with a bar of soap or a dry erase marker. Trace your face shape in the mirror (with the corner of the soap or the marker) and step away – your face shape will be left on the mirror!
