Which style is best for me?  How to choose a wig that compliments your face shape.

If your unsure of which style will be most flattering on you, use these suggestions as a guide to find a look that works with the shape of you face.

To determine your face shape:

Place yourself in front of a mirror, pull your hair back. Trace the outline of your face, with a bar of soap, onto the mirror. Compare the outlined shape on the mirror to the illustrations below

1. Triangle Face Shape...

Narrow forehead with a wide chin.
Try a shapely-layered look or a curly style. Heavy fringe and layers build fullness on top to soften a wider crown. Hair should be layered all around and tapered in back and at the sides.

2. Square Face Shape..

Angular jaw line is the same width as the forehead.
Try a short style that is wavy on top. The wispy edges soften a wide forehead and strong jaw line.

3. Oval Face Shape...

Well proportioned, with length of face longer than width.
Try any style. A classic oval shaped face looks great with all styles. Perhaps a longer style with a few graduated layers around the face.

4. Heart Shaped Face

Wide forehead, high cheek bones narrow ( V-shape ) chin.
Try a short and smart elfin crop that is wedged or tapered at the neck. The long wispy fringe softens a rounded and peaked forehead: layers are long at crown, graduated at the sides, and tapered at the nape of the neck.

5. Round Shaped Face...

Full cheeks with a circular form.
Go longer, with lots of soft curls, a layered style, or a classic page. Layers on top and longer length at the back elongate your face.

6. Narrow Shaped Face...

Slender face with a narrow chin.
Try a chic bob, or a bob with waves or soft curls on the top and sides. This style tends to round out your face.

7. Diamond
Narrow chin and forehead with wide cheekbones.
Bobs work very well for this shape. Avoid wearing height on top or volume on the sides. Use some fringe to cover a narrow forehead.
