Helpful Tips

1. Look in the mirror and use a dry erase marker to draw and outline around your face OR take a photo of you looking directly at the camera and then draw an outline around your face.

2. It is easier to determine if you pull your hair back into a pony tail or clip back your bangs.

3. Don’t include your ears in the shape, you are just outlining the outside contours.
