Have you worked out your face shape???

been trying to do this all my life- it is in between round and square but san't tell. All the websites say trace round your face in the mirror- but how? Doesn't seem to work when I try!

My forehead and jaw are the same width almost-forhead slightly wider than jaw which equals square- but my chin and jaw are almost on the same level, which makes it look round!

In other words, which ever way up you turn my face, I reckon it would look the same!

Help! I am trying to find a new hairstyle online as well as talking to my hair dreseer, and just can't seem to do it.

anyone know of any websites that work out our face shape, rather than just giving you wigs nad make overs? or a fool proof way towork out your face shape?

I also have a completely circular face. Pudding style.

OP - you have the same face shape as me, ie one that never seems to fit any of those categories. (Actually maybe mine is just an amoeba-like blob.) But I gave up trying ages ago as I suspect it is all a load of bolleaux anyway.

Just ask your hairdresser what would suit you.

is pretty evident to anyone even with limited vision what my head shape is.. plenty of em were being carved yesterday

hehe us roundheads are the only confident responses to this post

Mine is square. No doubt. Only time it looked round was in late stages of 1st preg, when I was size of a wildebeast.

If you have a full face photo of yourself, try drawing around your profile.

full moon here too. actually my jaw is square across the bottom. I'm quite the cover girl

GladysFox Sun 01-Nov-09 20:20:01

Mine is heart shaped I think.

DH says it's like an upside down pear. Excuse me while I thump him...

KnottyLocks Sun 01-Nov-09 20:20:56

David Coultard - he's a square. D'you look like him?

CybilCybilCybil Sun 01-Nov-09 21:13:07

Not qyuite THAt square thank god.

Cobblers Sun 01-Nov-09 21:15:57

Moonhead here too.

MadameDuBain Sun 01-Nov-09 21:20:19

Rofl at actually looking like David Coulthard

If you did, is your hairdo really going to fix matters?

CybilCybilCybil Sun 01-Nov-09 21:39:29

blimey thats a scary face .

I remember , under the advice of JUST 17 magazine to draw round my face shape on a mirror with lipstick. it came out the size and shape of a cashew nut

momijigari Sun 01-Nov-09 21:52:55

LOL, no idea here.

Hassled Sun 01-Nov-09 21:56:11

Is there a name for a shape taht's straight at the sides, slightly pointy at the bottom and vaguely curved at the top? Because that's your bog standard face shape, I reckon.

Nobody's face looks like a square. Unless they're SpongeBob. And he may well be a rectangle.

CybilCybilCybil Sun 01-Nov-09 21:57:55

this doesn;t help at all

CybilCybilCybil Sun 01-Nov-09 21:59:01

blimey this just complicates things further

bodycolder Sun 01-Nov-09 22:02:17

I am a heart apparently whatever that is

CybilCybilCybil Sun 01-Nov-09 22:03:12

Thats Kate Moss's face shape and the best one to have apparently.

<lumpen spud face emotion>

fishie Sun 01-Nov-09 22:05:18
