There are lots of online tutorials about finding your face shape, but they often don’t consider a face made from multiple face shapes, not to mention they focus on extreme forms of every face shape  — and how many of us really have those?
Follow along with our experts at Necklace in a Box toward determining your face-shape and better determining which necklaces for you to rock!
So, let’s get started. To determine your face shape, a series of 5 determining factors will be asked for each face shape.
After you answer all 5 determining factors for all the presented face-shapes, total the sums up for each shape. The face-shapes with the highest sums are most representative of your face shape.
You can find details on how to better measure your face before starting the quiz here:

Oval

The oval face shape is considered by many to be the most advantageous face shape, with an ability to pull off all looks and styles. Widest at the forehead, oval faces are longer than they are wide, but not by much, and feature a narrow chin with a rounded tip. This face shape can often be compared to that of an egg, although the features within it can e either sharp and angular or soft and curved.

The area from my brow bone to my hairline is noticeably taller than the area from the bottom of my bottom lip to my chin. 2
The area from my brow bone to my hairline is noticeably shorter than the area from the bottom of my bottom lip to my chin. 1

Oblong/Rectangular

The oblong face shape actually encompasses two face-shapes that are often wrongfully grouped together. Despite the frequent misunderstanding that there are two forms of oblong face-shapes rather than simply one, knowing which kind of oblong face shape you have can make a huge difference in the styles that will most flatter you!
Rectangular faces, also called simply ‘rectangle’, are most noted for their nearly-equal length from forehead to jawline, and typically feature a squared-chin. This face shape is often painted as having angular features, but that is not always the case, so keep in mind that a square chin or jaw might not necessarily be angular or abrupt; it may even look slightly soft, especially if someone is overweight or obese. The defining difference between the rectangular face and the square face is the length, where the rectangle is often narrower and longer in shape.
1.  Does the width of my face, from my forehead to jawline, run about equal?
Yes, you could probably run a ruler vertically from my forehead to my jawline and keep it practically straight. 3
Almost, this area of my face is somewhat even in width throughout, but one area is a bit more or less pronounced than the others (forehead, cheeks, or jaw). 2
No, this does not describe my face. 1
2. What is the difference in length between the area from my brow bone and hairline and the area from the bottom of my bottom lip to my chin?

The area from my brow bone to my hairline is fairly equal to the area from the bottom of my bottom lip to my chin. 3
3. Is my face longer than it is wide?
Yes, very noticeably so. 3
Yes, my face is noticeably longer, but not as long as some peoples. 3
Yes, but it is difficult to tell at first glance or the difference is not vast. 2

Square

Square faces, unlike rectangular or ‘rectangle’ faces, are simply denoted as ‘square’. A lesser-spoken of face shape, the ‘square’ face is about the same width from the forehead to the jaw, and typically features a squared chin.  It is sometimes possible to mistake the square face for a heart, pear, or round face shape at first glance due to it often being wider than it is long, however keep in mind that the chin and jawline are two of the most defining characteristics of this face shape and that a square chin and jawline do not necessarily mean angular or harsh.
1.  Does the width of my face — from my forehead to jawline — run about equal?
Yes, you could possibly run a ruler vertically from my forehead to my jawline. 3
Almost, this area of my face is somewhat even in width throughout, but one area is a bit more or less pronounced than the others (forehead, cheeks, or jaw). 2

Once you have answered the questions to each face shape, tally up the sum point values noted to the right of each answer you picked (Remember that you can only choose one answer per question and to answer each question in order to ensure accurate results!).
The face-shapes with the highest sum values are the ones more closely coordinating with your face shape. If more than one face shape share the same or similarly high values, there is a good probability that your face is actually a mixture of both face-shapes, and it is likely that necklaces from both face-shape groups will suit your pretty face very well!
Once you have calculated your face shape (or shapes!), click on one of the links below to read your personalized necklace report — featuring not only necklaces to even out your face shape, but necklaces to bring it out as well! The world would be a boring place if everyone had an oval face so be proud of your face shape.
