Now I’m going to talk to you about choosing frames for probably the least common facial shape, which is going to be, at least for gentlemen, the heart shaped face. General rule of thumb for the heart shaped face, for the guys, is that you want to have a lot of vertical elements. Okay, in your frame, something that kind of rides up, in a woman that would maybe be a cat eye shape, for a guy it’s obviously going to be different, you don’t want to go with anything so feminine as a cat shape, cat eye shape. What you’re going to notice here in this particular frame that is a Nautica that we’re going to use as an example, the frame goes up on the corners, not so severe so as to give it the cat eye look but it’s going to kind of move along your face, your facial features and turn up at the side, at the corner of the eye which is kind of what you want to do. You’re kind of giving a contrast to the heart shape, the heart shaped face when you go with a frame that goes up on the corners. So that’s generally what I would look for, again, it’s not terribly common to have this face shape if you’re a guy but if you do have no fear there is going to be plenty of styles for you, just try to find something that may ride up at the top.
