Let’s start! Position yourself in front of a mirror.
1.The first measurement is across the wide side of your forehead (a)
Midway between your eyebrows and the upper hairline.
Measure the distance straight from the hairline on one side of the head to the hairline on the other side. Note down the result.
2. The second measurement is across your cheekbones (b)
Locate the most prominent part of your cheekbones with your fingertips.
This spot can be traced right below the outer corner of each eye.
Measure straight from each cheekbone to the other.
Make sure not to press the measuring tape against your nose as this will affect the accuracy of the results.
3. The third measurement is from each end of your jaw to the tip of your chin (c)
Multiply this measure by two (x2)to get the total length of your jawline.
4. Last but not least it is time to measure the length of your face (d)
The distance you need this time is from the centre point of your upper hairline down to the tip of your chin. Please remember not to press the measuring tape against your nose.
Now that you have noted down the most important measurements you can compare them to determine your face shape.
What matters is the proportions.
