Here’s a helpful primer for starters: There are four general face shapes, and for each of these shapes, there are common traits.

Square Face Shape

  • Broad jawline.
  • More angular lines, equally wide cheekbones, forehead and jaw.
  • Semi-rimless or round styles can help balance a prominent jaw.

  • Tapered jawline and slightly defined cheekbones.
  • Best looks are from square, round or bold geometric frames.

Round Face Shape

  • Forehead and jaw height and width are roughly equivalent. Softer angles with slightly wider cheekbones.
  • Horizontal or rectangle shaped frames give your face a longer appearance.
