Ask your friends / family to take a good look at your face!
It’s generally easier for others to see.
You can also try looking at the mirror straight on, and squinting slightly. Focus on the general outline of your face, and try not to be distracted by any other elements such as your hair style, beard etc.
The main face shapes are: oval, round, oblong, diamond, square and heart-shape. Since we've begun the conversation on men’s face shapes, we are finding that most people are more than one shape, i.e. long oval, rounded square and so on.
Add in the mix whether you have a long or short forehead, prominent ears, whether you wear glasses or a beard: you now have a whole set of variables to consider beyond your face shape!
Follow our style guide for some tips and pointers, which we hope will be helpful in choosing a designer hat, flat cap or beret cap. It’s all about getting the right balance and proportion to suit your face. Everyone is different!
First and Foremost… Your Forehead
A little tricky to tell but a useful one to know: how long is your forehead?
To find out, compare with a friend in front of a mirror. Examples below show Alexander Skarsgård’s longer than average forehead, while Zac Effron is on the other end of the forehead spectrum!
