What is your Face Shape?



What is your face shape? The importance of choosing the style that matches your face!

Understanding your head and face shape is a vital consultation in order to choose your suitable hairstyle.

What do we do? We identify each client’s individual features to enable you to enhance their good features (Cheekbones, eyes, etc) and disguise not so good features (large nose, big forehead, etc). Not forgetting eyewear, hearing aids, etc.

  • Oval

The oval face is visually symmetrical and will suit all hairstyles and facial hair.

  • Round

The round face has a full and round jawline and usually around hairline, this face shape suits styles with shorter side to give the impression of a thinner face, height on top lengthen the face and off-centre partings. They would also suit a neat moustache or a neat, tidy beard to slim and make the face appear longer.

  • Diamond

The diamond face has a rounded hairline, wider cheekbones and narrow chin. This face would suit full fringes to square off the forehead. They would also suit a full beard which would square off the face and disguise a prominent chin.

  • Pear

The pear face has a narrow forehead and hairline with a broad jawline. This face shape suits full, rounded hairstyles with the length the same all over, which are designed to balance the face. They would also suit a fuller beard trimmed to square off and slim the face.

  • Square

The square face has a squared and broad jawline. The forehead, cheekbones and jawline are the same widths. The face shape suits styles that are softer on the edges and similar to round face shape, keep the sides shorter and the top higher to lengthen the face. NO flat tops! They would also suit facial hairstyles that may help their face appear less box-like – all over beards with hard lines, moustaches, goatees and neatly trimmed stubble.

  • Oblong

The oblong face has narrow and straight sides with a slightly rounded chin. This face shape suits layered styles and wispy fringes. Stay away from styles that define the hairline and NO long sideburns. They would also suit a neatly shaped moustache designed to shorten the face and a neatly trimmed beard which would make the face appear shorter and squarer.

  • Heart

The heart-shaped face is widest across the cheekbones and the eyes, with a broad forehead. The shape narrows at the jawline and comes to a pointed chin. Most styles will look good on the heart-shaped face, though fullness on the sides of the head should be avoided, as that is the broadest point of the face. They would also suit a full beard which would disguise a pointed chin.


  • Triangular

The triangular face has a wide hairline, broad jawline and narrow chin. This face shape suits styles that are short on top to keep the top of the head from being the focal point. Buzz cuts and cropped styles work well. The hair cuts should avoid sharp lines that define the hairline. They would also suit full beards designed to disguise the pointed chin.

A shorty history injection of barbershops

The history of the barber and barbershop is an interesting story, dating back to 3500BC, barbering is thought to be one of the oldest trades known to man. The word ‘Barber’ comes from the Latin word ‘Barba’, meaning beard.

Originally, barbers were known as barber-surgeons because, as well as cutting hair and shaving, barber-surgeons would also perform minor surgical procedures ranging from extracting teeth to amputating limbs.

Mortality during surgery at this time was quite high due to loss of blood and infections. Doctors in the middle ages believed that taking blood would help cure the patient of sickness so the barber would apply leeches to the patient.

From the 1880s till the 1950’s hair wax and pocket-comb carrying was a thing, barbershops were very popular, during these years the social hub was the barbershop was man were pampered and still be as manly as it can be. Business and friendly relationships all started there, at the corner barbershop. Men would go in these places not just to get groomed, but to socialize hours on end. Classy Tabaco, musk, apple and cherry-filled the air in these hand-crafted marble top, back then these barbershops offering handmade hair tonic and hair products. The decline of these absolute gems was due to Gillette razor blade back in 1904. Therefore, like today going to the barber became a special treat, rather than an everyday occurrence.


Here is a picture of Cannavo, who was considered to be a top barber in the Cottonera area in the 1920s. The photo was taken by ELLIS, a well-known photographer back in the day. Our client, Mr. Xuereb told us that his grandfather is the boy behind the barber and the men reading the paper about to get his haircut is his great grandfather whose name is also “Antonio” 💈


Did you know that the talented Antonio Camilleri was inspired by his grandad who was a barber and dentist on the Royal Navy? Serving on 4 different ships, grooming seamen of all grades, captains to sailors. It is said, the love to the trade was bestowed down skipping one generation.
