Oblong Face Shape

Oblong Face Shape

Personally, I think my face leans more toward being oblong-shaped. Although, I'd like to know what it really is.

Jane's answer...
Hi WS. I can't see your hairline in this photo. However, I think you are correct and that your face shape is oblong.

Even though your cheek bones are the widest part of your face, from where I'm guessing your hairline is your face is definitely longer than it is wide and your jaw-line is rounded. This means you have an oblong face shape.

The length to width ratio of a face is the most important criteria for assessing the main shape of your face.
