Quiz: What's Your Face Shape?

Finally figure it out -- no more guessing or staring at the mirror for you

You've seen the articles: Best haircut for your face shape, best glasses for your face shape, best lipstick for your face shape. Well, that last one is a bit of a stretch, but you get the picture.

Face shape can totally determine what hairstyles will look good on you and even what accessories you should wear, or so says celebrity hairstylist Dean Banowetz (Jennifer Hudson and Carrie Underwood can thank him for their face shape-flattering 'dos).

Trouble is, it's so freakin' hard to figure out what your face shape is, right? You've probably been told your face is round by one friend, oval by another. Better yet, you look in the mirror and see a heart, but your boyfriend says he sees a box (translation: square). It's enough to drive a girl to Xanax.

Instead of reaching for the pills, just take this quiz. We promise we won't just ask you to look in the mirror and say what shape you see. Seriously, how many times have you heard that? It's never worked for us and we doubt it has for you. Instead, we'll take you through step by step -- and give tips on the best looks for your face shape, now that you finally, definitely, totally for sure know what it is.

DeLaine Owens (Sat, 02 Jul 2011 12:18:49 -0700): I got oval? How's that? I guess a fat oval can look kind of round. When I traced my face, I was so surprised that I'm actually a square. Maybe I'm an octagon or a star.

Crystal Hester (Thu, 30 Aug 2012 10:11:38 -0700): A star could be interesting..lol
Jamie Ott (Thu, 13 Jun 2013 14:24:15 -0700): I have an oval. I've been told I look like a darker version of Kim Novak, but what's funny is it says Cameron Diaz is oval. But I've read a few sites that say she's round, lol. Well, anyway, I'm pretty sure I'm oval - heart as that's what most people say about me, but I agree, it's hard to say for sure. People see things differently; certain features stand out more to others, while other features stand out more to a different crowd. It's sort of like wine tasting: one person only can taste oak and another can taste oak and all the spices as well as the fruit. In other words, I really think it depends on who's assessing a person's face. Also, one should note that this only lists a few of the possible face shapes, and I believe there is between 6 - 12, depending on who you ask. A person can also be a combination of 2 face shapes.
Logical Bongi (Fri, 27 Sep 2013 07:06:08 -0700): that is what my face shape is. & seriously seriously I hate it.. I tried a hair crown few days ago & trust me it was the best ever look of mine :) 5 star rating for the app Thanks

Aswah Hasnain (Tue, 03 Dec 2013 01:59:36 -0800): ahan nice :)
Erandy Lopez (Thu, 27 Mar 2014 02:52:06 -0700): Have a heart shaped the most unique of al shapes
Elly Molyneaux (Mon, 28 Apr 2014 03:46:26 -0700): It says I have oval but I my cheeks are the widest point and quite high, I think I may be a diamond-oval combination.
