What is your face shape?

Women choose to wear wigs for many different reasons.Wigs can accentuate a hairstyle a woman already has or give her options for a completely new look. Women wear wigs to cover up the effects of an illness, give herself a new look, or maybe she doesnt feel like doing her hair in the morning.

When choosing a wig it is very important to pick one that flatters the shape of your face. This will help the hairstyle look more natural. Women should look for styles that accentuate their positive attributes, while drawing attention away from areas that may result in an unbalanced look.

 

FACE SHAPES There are 7 different face shapes and each shape has specific styles that are more flattering.

 

DIAMOND Reduce width at sides- The diamond shaped face is characterized by a narrow chin and forehead with wide cheekbones. Diamond shaped faces need narrow sides and fullness at the chin. Bobs work very well for this shape. Avoid wearing height on top or volume on the sides. Use some fringe or bang to cover narrow forehead.

 

HEART Add volume at chin- The heart shaped face is characterized by a wider forehead (often with a widow's peak) and a narrower chin. Bring some hair onto the forehead to disguise its width. Keep hair close to the head at the eyes but make it slightly full around the jaw, and below and in front of the earlobes.

 

OBLONG Add softness- The oblong shaped face is characterized by a very long narrow bone structure. The client who has an oblong facial shape often has a long thin neck. Use fringe or half-bang across the forehead by creating soft waves or curls in the crown and nape areas. This helps to create the illusion of an oval.

 

OVAL As the name implies, the oval shaped face is longer than wide, with a jaw that's narrower than the cheekbones. Because the oval shaped face has no dominant areas and is proportional, this face looks good with just about any hairstyle, length, or texture.

 

PEAR Add volume above jaw line- The pear shaped face is characterized by a small or narrow forehead and a rather large, pouchy-appearing jaw line. Comb hair to add width from the eye level through the crown of the head. Set and comb hair close to the head on the sides and at the nape.

 

ROUND Avoid width- The round shaped face is characterized by a wide hairline and fullness below the cheekbones. The client may be overweight and her neck may appear short. These faces look very good with a geometric or linear style. Add height, when possible, and long, wispy wide areas to make the cheeks look narrow. Comb hair close to the head on the side and at the nape.

 

SQUARE Avoid straight lines- The square shaped face is characterized by a wide hairline and jaw. Square shaped faces need height on top and narrowness at the sides. Comb the hair off the forehead to add height to the face. Curly texture and wisps of hair around the face break the wide, straight lines common to the square face.
