Determining your face shape is a great place to start when looking for a pair of well-fitting eyeglasses. When you come to Cohen’s Fashion Optical, your professional Sales Associate will determine your face shape.
Square-shaped faces are typically proportional in length and width and characterized by a strong jaw line, square chin and broad, deep forehead. Round or oval eyeglasses are recommended to soften and add contrast to angular face shapes.
Frame Shapes for Square-Shaped Faces
Round frames help to create curves and soften square faces, minimizing angles and lengthening the faces. Frame shapes should be more horizontal than vertical.

Round faces have equal width and length, are characterized by soft curves and are best suited by angular frames.
Frame Shapes for Round-Shaped Faces
Angular frames help to balance a round face. In particular, rectangular-shaped frames make round faces look slimmer. Horizontal frames and frames with higher temples help to lengthen a round face.

Oval-shaped faces are the easiest to fit and are characterized by balanced proportions, a narrow forehead and jaw line, a chin slightly narrower than the forehead, and usually high cheekbones. Oval-shapes faces can typically wear any frame shape.
Frame Shapes for Oval-Shaped Faces
We will try a variety of shapes, starting with rectangular or butterfly, to find your best fit. Because oval faces typically have smaller features, it is important to find frames that are proportionate.

Heart-shaped faces are characterized by wide foreheads, narrower jaw lines, high cheekbones and a narrow chin.
Frame Shapes for Heart-Shaped Faces
Butterfly, Round and Cat Eye shaped frames help to balance a heart-shaped face. Frames that are wider at the bottom are recommended to offset a narrow chin and those with low temples add balance. Heart-shaped faces should avoid frames that are decorative or wider at the top.
