Let’s face it (LITERALLY!), our face shape can change over the years. I’ve gone from round to oval and maybe I was a diamond at one point? It’s normal to go from a round face to perhaps a more oval frame as you naturally age and shed facial fat. The best way for me to get to the bottom of this was by asking 3 of my my closest friends to take a look at the diagram and decide for me. I guess you can say I put my face in their hands (da-ra-da!)
It was a unanimous Oval. I say I’m a mix between round and oval. Regardless, that might be why I’ve gotten away with parting my hair in a million different ways. See below! Speaking of hair parts, now that you know your face shape, a simple update to your part can highlight facial features, bring your cheekbones out, soften up sharp angles, and more. So keep that in mind for your next haircut.

Now you can confidently take on the world with a better understanding of your face shape. So tell me…what’s your face shape?
