Face Shape Guide

Find Your Perfect Sunglasses With Our Fitting Guide

Looking to find your perfect sunglasses? It's important to consider the shape of the frames and the shape of your face. While it is true that you can wear any pair you like, some sunglasses might compliment you better. 

We've created this guide to help you find the perfect pair of Pica-Pau sunglasses.

What is My Face Shape?

The first step in finding the perfect sunglasses is determining what face shape you have. There are five main categories:

  • Round
  • Heart
  • Square
  • Triangle
  • Oval

Not sure what shape your face is? Take a selfie or a quick look in the mirror. The easiest way to tell is by looking at your jawline. And keep in mind that it is common to be a mixture of two face shapes. Now let's find what sunglasses work best for your face!


What are the Perfect Sunglasses for Me?


Round Face

A round face will have a softer jawline and fuller cheeks. The cheekbones will also be wider with an equally wide forehead. Instead of angles, the round face will have more curve to it.


For a round face, sunglasses with bold frames and rectangular, geometric lines will compliment a fuller cheek and draw attention to your eyes.


Heart Shaped Face

Heart-shaped faces are widest at the forehead and narrow towards the chin. With their high cheekbones, heart-shaped faces have more variety of suitable sunglasses.



For heart-shaped faces, we recommend sunglasses with frames slightly wider than the brow and rounded at the base of the lens. Oval frames will also help draw attention towards the eyes and bottom-heavy frames will create balance.


Square Face


A square face will often have more angular, sharp lines. The jaw, cheekbones and forehead will also often be of equal width.


To create balance, we recommend choosing a more rounded or oval shaped frame. The curved frames will create contrast with the sharp lines of the square face.


Triangle-Shaped Face


The opposite of heart-shaped faces, a triangle-shaped face will often be widest at the jawline and narrow towards the forehead.


For triangle-shaped faces, we recommend choosing sunglasses that are widest at the top and narrow at the top, like Aviator-style or Cat-Eye glasses. This will balance out the face shape, drawing more attention towards the eyes and forehead.


Oval-Shaped Face


Considered the “universal” face shape, oval-shaped faces will look great in most sunglasses because of their natural balance. Widest at the cheekbones, the oval-shaped face will gently narrow towards the chin and forehead.


The best compliment for an oval-shaped face are sunglasses that add more balance and emphasize the strong points. We recommend angular, geometric frames that are widest at the eyes like rectangular or square frames.
