Heart Shaped Face

A heart-Shaped face has a broad forehead, tapering to a small neat chin and mouth. Choose smaller styles without decorative detail on the temples.

TRY:   Rounded or square styles, with lower set sides. Top-heavy style that balance the width of the jaw.
AVOID:   Styles which are wider at the top; these will reflect the face shape rather than balance it.

Round Shaped Face

A round face is fairly short with a wide forehead, often with full cheeks and a rounded chin.

TRY:   Styles that are wider than they are deep and square or upswept shapes that draw attention to your upper face. Choose styles with high set sides, and those with colour or decoration on the temples.
AVOID:   Small and round shapes and very large frames which will make your face look rounder.

Oval Shaped Face

An oval face is well balanced and softly rounded; the forehead is slightly wider than the jaw, which curves gently, and the cheekbones are high. An oval face looks good in most styles, so be adventurous!

TRY:   Modern small, geometric styles.
AVOID:   Styles that are uncomfortable to wear or that you feel do not suit your face.

Square Shaped Face

A square face has a broad, deep forehead, wide jaw line and square chin. Choose round, oval or cat-eye style frames to soften the jaw line.

TRY:   Oval and round frames.
AVOID:  Geometric and square shaped frames that accentuate angles of the face.
