How to Measure Face Angle

For most of us determining our face shape is not really something important. Of course, who would want to spend time knowing what his or her face shape is like. Just a quick look in the mirror would give you an idea of what face shape you have, is not it? However, that is not the case. Mostly, we fail to determine our actual face shape, as it remains hidden with our hairdos and accessories. You will have to put in some efforts in order to determine your actual face shape.
