Nowadays, more and more people begin to choose to wear wigs to make yourselves become more beautiful for varieties of reasons. You may choose the wigs relying on different methods. And you should remember: knowing what facial shape you have plays an important role in choosing suitable wigs for yourself. You can choose the length, type, and density of hair wigs depending on your facial shape. Do you know your facial shape? It maybe has two answers: yes or no. But it doesn’t matter If you are not sure about your facial shape. In this article, I will tell you how to judge your facial shape and how to select your wigs in terms of your facial shape.

How to judge your facial shape?

The facial shape usually can be divided into six parts: oval, round, square, oblong, heart, and diamond shape. To figure out what face shape you have, there are two steps you need to do: one is that measure the key distances, and the other is that use the information I give you to judge your facial shape.

Step 1: Measure the four key distances

In order to get the most accurate consequence, you can use a flexible measuring tape to measure the four key distances on your face.


1. Forehead width: Measure the distance between eyebrow peaks on both sides.

2. Cheekbone width: Measure the distance between the highest positions on both sides of the cheeks.

3. Jawline width: Find the point behind your ear where your plus is throbbing, and the tip of your chin, then measure the distance between them and multiply by 2.

4. Face length: From your hairline in the center of your forehead down the middle of your face to the tip of your chin.

Step 2: Use the following information to determine your facial shape

Since you have measured the four key distances, now you can use the following information to judge your facial shape.

Oval shape: the forehead is slightly wider than the chin, the cheekbone width is smaller than the face length, and the rounded jawline.


Round shape: the forehead width is equal to the cheekbone width, and your jawline and chin are soft and rounded.


Square shape: the width of the jawline is equivalent to the forehead width, and the jawline is square and strong.


Oblong shape: the face length is much longer than its width, a very narrow width.


Heart shape: the jawline width is smaller than the forehead, the cheekbone width is the same as the forehead, and the width of the forehead and cheekbone are wider than the jawline.


Diamond shape: the cheekbone width is wider than the forehead, and the narrowed hairline and pointy chin.


How to select your wigs in terms of your facial?

I believe that you have already known your facial shape according to the method I just give you. Knowing your facial shape is of importance for you to select suitable wigs. Now I would like to introduce some right wigs for you on the basis of your facial shape.

Oval shape

The oval shape is viewed as the ideal shape because of its most balanced proportion. If you are oval shape, you can control any style, so you can choose the wigs whatever you want. For example, you can choose Bob wigs, deep wave wigs. Kelly Rowland and Olivia Munn are nice examples with perfectly shaped oval faces.

Round shape

The round shape is the most popular face shape among many face shapes, which can highlight the sweetness and pleasure of girls. You can choose the wigs with the middle part or deep side part, long layered wigs. For instance, Chrissy Teigen, Elizabeth Olsen, and Jennifer Lawrence are the representation of round shapes.

The square shape is well-defined and very modern, which can leave a strong-willed impression on people, but it seems to make women look less soft. The right hairstyle for a square face should soften the angles and add some height at the top. You can not choose a jaw-length blunt Bob, a sleek ponytail. So you can choose the wigs with a side part of bangs, long layered wavy hair, and a-line chin-length Bob. There are some celebrities with your face shape such as Rihanna, Cameron Diaz, Angelina Jolie, and Sandra Bullock.

Oblong shape

The longer face length is the typical feature of an oblong facial shape, so we need to create an illusion of width in order to balance the ratio of face length and width. You should avoid long straight hair with a side bang and a half-up bouffant hairstyle. If you are oblong shape, you can choose wave wigs or curly wigs to create the width and shorten the face length.

Heart shape

The heart shape is a very cute face shape. When considering what works best with your heart shape, Rosenkranz recommends trying to “ avoid styles that accentuate the width of the forehead or cheekbones." So if you are heart shape, there are a variety of options for you. For example, chin-length Bob wigs, and long-length wigs. Sarah Hyland and Reese Witherspoon are great examples of heart shapes.

Diamond shape

The diamond shape is similar to a heart-shaped face, which has a wide cheekbone and a narrow chin and forehead. As Rosenkranz says"A soft fringe and length will best help to soften the angles of the diamond shape, but avoid styles that draw the eye to or accentuate the jawline," thus if you are looking for optimal wigs for yourself, you can select Bobs wigs or wigs with the bangs to cover the narrow forehead or long layered hair wigs and so on. For instance. Ashley Greene is a good example with a diamond-shaped face.
