Different Types of Face Shapes 

  1. Round Face Shape 
  2. Square Face Shape 
  3. Heart Face Shape

Round Face Shape 

For those with a round face shape, there are plenty of glasses to choose from. Often, round face shapes go with square frames. This is due to the angularity of the frames, adding contrast to ones facial structure. Many eyeglass experts also state that those with round face shapes should avoid round glasses.

Square Face Shape 

As stated earlier with the round face shape, we typically want to go with opposites. This means that if you have a square face shape, you may want to go with a more round pair of frames. Now, this does not have to be a perfect circle, but rather, think curvier and rounded edges. With sharp jawlines and more angular features, softer and curvier glasses will help to soften your natural facial structure.

Heart Face Shape 

A heart face shape is different in terms of glasses and sunglasses than any of the others on this list. While square and circular face shapes demand opposite shaped frames to balance them, with heart shaped faces, we typically look for the same angles. These will highlight your facial structure and give you the best look overall. 

In addition, those with heart shaped faces can use the size of their features (small or large) to determine the thickness of the frames they buy. If you have smaller and more delicate features, you may want to look for thin frames, and if it is the opposite, you may want to look for larger, thicker frames.
