What is Your Face Shape?

First things first, do you know what your face shape is? And while most people think their face is round, there are many more shapes that can be identified through your hairline, the length and width of your face, and your jawline.


An oval face shape has a longer length than width, with a jawline that is slightly narrower than the hairline.

Celebrities with this shape: Beyonce, Jessica Alba, Zac Efron, Chris Hemsworth.

Best Hairstyles: Any(!) — blunt bob, bangs, layers, shaved sides.

Those with an oval face have one of those coveted shapes that can rock just about any hairstyle. From fully shaved to slick and sleek, you can get away with all the hottest trends!
