A bad haircut is no excuse. And don’t overlook the reason. Asking yourself what went wrong will prevent repeating the same mistake. After all, in a haircut, every inch can make a big difference. The good news is, now you have close to a mon- th to do something about it.

Know your face

Looking in the mirror every day, normally gives people a good idea about the type of face they have. But apparently you didn’t notice or make time to determine how your face really looks. Correct that now.

Actually, this is a simple exercise. Get hold of measuring tape, then physically me- asure the elements that go to make a face. Jotting down on piece of paper as you go into it.


  • Forehead: Look at the peaks of your eyebrows, then measure the distance from one peak to the other of the eye opposite.

  • Cheekbones: Feel the pointiest part of your cheekbone. It is just under the outer corner of each eye. Now measure from one end of the point under the eye corner to the other eye corner.

  • Jawline: Stretch the tape across from the tip of your chin to just below your ear- lobe. It’s the point at which your jaw angles upwards. Measure and do a little sum here. Multiply the measured number by two. This is your true jawline.

  • Face Length: This is an easy one. Measure from the centre of your hairline to the tip of your chin. Now make a note of the longest measure out of the four, then ma- tch this with the seven main face shapes a man can be born with.


Oval face: the length of the face is longer than the width of the cheekbones. Foreh- ead measures more than the jawline. And the angle of the jaw is rounded rather than sharp.

Rectangular face: Forehead, cheekbone and jawline are almost similar in length. A very clear cut masculine statement. Lucky you.

Triangular face: Jawline measures greater than cheekbones, and this measures larger than the forehead.

Rounded face: Cheekbones and face length are similar. But are larger than the foreh- ead and jawline. The angle of the jaw is soft and less defined.
