How many face shapes do you know? And what is yours?


Some friends will ask why do you want to distinguish your face?

Everyone will find that their different hairstyles have different visual effects, and the visual effects of wearing different collars are different. These different effects are of course because each person has a different face shape, and through the face type we can find the style that best suits your hair, glasses, sunglasses, necklaces, earrings, … clothes. So now I’m going to talk about my face~

We divided the common faces into 7 categories, but how can we determine which category we belong to?


1.Square face

Square faces may contain rectangular faces and square faces.

a. Chin has a sense of angle

b. Your cheekbones are almost the same width as your forehead and chin.

The square face can be roughly divided into a square face and a rectangular face. Although the length and width may vary, there is a square chin on both sides. If your chin has not only a square corner but a thicker face, you may want to consider a triangular face.

Visual sense: very modern, giving a strong impression, some not soft enough.

Styling points: soft and visually reduce the lower half of the face

2. Round Face

The shape of a round face is similar to an ellipse but slightly shorter, usually with a rounded chin, also known as a baby face. Most friends with a round face usually looks younger than the actual age. The disadvantage is that no matter which angle it looks childish and immature, it is difficult to create a sense of trust.

The characteristics of the round face:

a. Round face is about the same length and width, almost a 2, 4 line treaty, etc.

b. The face shape of a round face is a gradually curved line instead of a hard corner.

c. Round face chin fullness

It should be noted here that it is possible that your chin will be a prominent pointed chin, but if you smile, it is still smooth, then you are also a round face.

Visual sense: lively, lovely, healthy, easy to be close, but easy to show naive, lack of trust and professionalism.

Modeling point: If your overall visual effect is full and wide, then you still have to refer to the triangle face.

The triangular face is also called the pear-shaped face. This face is narrower on the forehead. The widest part of the face is the lower jaw. It presents a small triangle with a large upper and lower face. The triangular face and the round face are similar to the most youthful face, but the disadvantages. It is obvious that the face is wider.

Features of the triangular face:

a. Narrow forehead, wide jaw and fleshy

b. Presents a small visual sense and a stable feeling

Visual sense: friendly and gentle, but lacks femininity.

Modeling point: Try to visually reduce and soften the lower half of the face to maintain a true balance of the face.
