How to Identify Your Face Shape

At Lavoom Salon, we emphasize the importance of personalized beauty. Identifying your face shape is a pivotal step toward achieving the ideal eyebrow shape. Follow our step-by-step instructions for accurate face shape determination:

1. Forehead Measurement:

  • Take a soft measuring tape or ruler.

  • Measure the width of your forehead by placing the tape across your forehead from hairline to hairline.

2. Cheekbone Width:

  • Locate the highest point of each cheekbone.

  • Measure the distance between these points, ensuring the tape is parallel to the ground.

3. Jawline Definition:

  • Observe your jawline to determine its shape.

  • For an angular jaw, measure the distance from the tip of one jawbone to the other. For a rounded jaw, take the measurement across the chin.

4. Face Length:

  • Measure the length of your face from the center of your hairline to the tip of your chin.

5. Face Proportions:

  • Evaluate the symmetry of your face by comparing the width of your forehead to the width of your jaw.


Now that you have these measurements, match them with common face shapes to identify your unique facial structure. Lavoom Salon's experts will use this information to tailor the perfect eyebrow shape that enhances your natural beauty.
