    Hey guys,

    Is there a scientific way, or a method based on measurements to determine your face shape?

    I know there are 6 or 7 face shapes, square, round, triangular, diamond, etc...
    but do you find it easy to determine it just by looking at yourself in the mirror or looking at the pic? Or is there a definitive way to determine your face shape, and based on it what haircut, facial hair, etc.... suits you best.

    A second question is: Is there a difference between a strong jaw and a strong chin?

    Does one come with a square face and the other depends wether you have a receding chin or a protruding one? Or are the two correlated, in a way that if you have one you have the other?

    Thanks

    I fall into the category of horse faced

    My beard kind hides how long my face actually is.

    It all depends on which hole your face came out of.
    Wait, that didn't come out right.
    Hmmm, there's no way of fixing this, is there?

    I've been trying to figure this out too... I keep getting different responses like square or rectangle. Confusing! Really love to know though...

    I don't think anyone actually knows. I believe that magazines just say that to sell themselves.

    I've looked at these shape tips a few times when choosing eyeglasses and I swear some of the face shapes are interchangeable haha, it's fairly hard when looking at a real face. I just go with "Oval" myself.

    To me it just looks like a jaw and hairline play the biggest role in determining the shape. The chin not so much.

    I usually just go with the flow. I just muss around my hair until I get a structure that looks good, and I try on spectacles until I find one that suits me.

    A lot of the things that I pick to style myself with also reflect my personality. Some things that look good on me are big no nos because they aren't very 'me'.

    As for facial hair, I just wish I had some (I do, but it's like peach fuzz - you can't see it very well, but feels amazing to rub). So I can't comment on styling that.

    TrollileoHuh? Faces have shapes now?

    Haahaa welcome to the jungle! icon_wink.gif

    Well OP once you shave your head completely bald! Then you have the 100% of knowing what shape your in. But then again your Jaw line would narrow it down at most 2-3 shapes you can get by manipulating your upstairs. The jaw place a vital role on this! compare to the chin where it makes you look cute handsome masculine or Horseicon_rolleyes.gif it varies on the combination...lolz

    I would say 60%-70% most of the time the Jaw has the correlation factor, where the chin would play about 20-30% of making up a face shape.
    Then the upper head has probably about 50% influencing factor.

    So to that I would say the Jaw has the stronger weigh on determine your face shape.

    i luv guys with buzzed hair regardless of hairline,

    but i grew up in an environment heavily influenced by military personell and surroundings. I still think it's the most masculine of all haircuts, and it's the only acceptable option if you've got thinning or receding hair.

    Yeah I think I look a lot better with shorter hair. I think I'm going to go back.
