How to determine the type of face?

"I wonder what kind of face I have?" - such an idea sooner or later visits each of us. And not only interesting, but just need to devote a few minutes to determining the type of persons. And how else to follow the recommendations of makeup artists and hairdressers who start all their advice with the phrase: "If you have such a type of face, then ..."? But for some reason they do not tell you how to correctly identify this type. But then we spend time in front of a mirror, tormented by the question, "What is my type of face, how to define it?".

If you have a sufficiently developed imagination, you can just stand in front of a mirror and pick up that geometric figure that looks like your face's oval. But often there are forms of a person that do not fit into geometric definitions, and to know the classical names of face types will not be superfluous either. After all, makeup specialists and hairstyles most often operate on them.

Determining the type of face

There are 7 types of the face oval: round, oval, rectangular (elongated), square, diamond, heart, triangle. To get an answer to the question of how to find out which type of face I have, let's arm big (the whole face and neck should fit into it) with a mirror, ruler and a couple of minutes of time. To have fewer opportunities to get lost among the types of faces, we narrow the search to 2-3 categories. To do this, you will need to pass a small test, follow the steps below.

  1. We comb all the hair so that the face is completely open.
  2. We measure the length of the face from the line of hair growth on the forehead to the tip of the chin.
  3. The resulting value is divided by 3, we remember this result - the value of A.
  4. We measure the distance from the tip of the chin to the base of the nose, this value is B.
  5. Now compare both values. If:

Now that you have decided on the category to which your face belongs, it remains to read descriptions of the types of face ovals corresponding to the results obtained. Not necessarily exactly all the characteristics will coincide, but your form will be one with which there is the greatest number of coincidences.

Characteristics of types of face

Round: The width of the face is approximately equal to its length, and the widest part is the cheeks. The facial features are smooth, soft.

Oval: the length of the face is 1.5 times its width, facial features are perfectly symmetrical and smooth.

Square: the width of the cheekbones and forehead is approximately equal to the width of the chin, the facial features are sharper and sharply outlined.

"Almaz": broad cheekbones or whiskeys, narrow and short forehead, sharp chin.

Rectangular (elongated): whiskey and chin are approximately on the same line. The type as a whole is similar to square, but here the length of the face is much larger than the width.

"Heart": the face narrows to the pointed chin, but unlike the face type "diamond" and the forehead and cheekbones are wide, about the same size.

"Triangle": narrow forehead, the face gradually widens to the chin.

Well, you now know the type of your face, which means that you can correctly form your image in order to be even more attractive. And do not pay attention to statements that the ideal type of face is an oval. Yes, makeup artists and hairdressers do consider it to be so, but only because it's the easiest thing to work with such a person. In fact, there are no ideals, and you can look attractive with any form of face. Do not believe me? What do you think, what type of face does the recognized beauty Angelina Jolie have, try to determine. Is it really an oval? But no, the face shape of this beauty is square. So there is less grief about the inconsistency of other people's ideals.
