The Nancy Parker method

  1. Take a selfie as straight on as possible and print it out.
  2. Get a ruler and measure your face in 2 different places, writing down the results.A Face length – Measure from the top of your forehead to your chin. Now divide this number with 3
    B From nose to chin – Measure the space from underneath your nose to your chin.


* If A is greater than B, then you either have a long or a square face.
* If A is less than B, then you either have a round face or a diamond face.
* If A an B are equal, or very close to, then you either have a heart shaped face or an oval face (If your chin is pointy, then you are heart shaped. If your chin is round then you have an oval shaped face)
