Measuring Your Face
- Forhead Width: From hairline to hairline at the widest point
- Face length: Center of your hairline straight down to your chin
- Jawline: Just below your ears, find the end of your jawbone. Measure from one side to the other around the bottom of your face.
- Cheekbone: Find the top of your cheekbone, just below your eyes, measure from one side to the other.
Compare the measurements of your forhead and jawline. The larger of the two is your face width.
