    Mine is a rectangle. I wear a long layered style with side-swept bangs.

    Haha sorry totally forgot this. There you go:

    Oval
    Oval is considered the best face shape as it has the most balanced proportions and can generally pull off any style glasses. In order to keep its even proportions though, you may find that it is best to pick a frame that is as wide as or wider than the broadest part of the face.

    Rectangle
    Select a distinctive, wide, horizontal frame with some weight at the top and bottom and rounded sides to add fullness and with decoration on the temples that will add width to this narrow face. This is a face that is longer than it is wide and quite often will have a longer nose. To balance this out you may want to try glasses that sit lower on the bridge, which will help to shorten the nose

    Inverted Triangle
    To balance this out you may find it advisable to pick glasses that take the attention to the top rim of the frame, perhaps semi-rimless glasses on top and coloured or thicker frame on the bottom. Keep the volume and detail to the lower half and keep it discrete on the upper half.

    Heart
    Select frames which give the illusion of fullness at the cheek area, bring balance between forehead and chin. To balance this out you may find it advisable to pick glasses that take the attention to the top rim of the frame, perhaps a down swept frame that has outer dominant vertical lines. They will accentuate the breadth in the lower half of your face.

    Pear
    Select frames with a broad horizontal line at the top (to give illusion of width at the eye area) and little or no heaviness to the rest of the frame. This will bring balance to the wide jaw-line.

    Square
    Select a frame not only with straight horizontal lines to give the illusion of width but also a narrow oval shape or anything with rounder, softer edges to give the illusion of roundness.

    Round
    Choose a squarish shape frame which has the edges “knocked off”- softly angular, narrow frame or glasses with more width than depth- giving a more contoured shape. It will lengthen your face and make it appear thinner. Avoid any big round glasses, and keep the width equal to or wider than the broadest part of your face

    Diamond
    Opt for frames which give straight look at the top and bottom, giving the illusion of width It can also help if you pick light coloured frames or even rimless glasses.

    I think mine is gradually evolving to PEAR! I used to have diamond shape, a couple of months ago I had square shape.. puberty I guess...

    Um, this is about which frame of glasses would suit your faceshape best, not which kind of haircut... :innocent:

    I have absolutely no idea what my faceshape is. It might be a mixture of oval and heart :ermm: or diamond...
