In some cases of delay differential equations (DDEs), a delay-dependant coefficient is incorporated into models which takes the form of a function of delay quantity. This brings forth frequent stability-switch phenomena. A geometrical stability criterion is developed on the two-parameter plane for analyzing Hopf bifurcations of equilibria. It is shown that the increasing direction of parameter $\sigma$ would confirm bifurcation directions (from stable one to unstable one, or whereas) at the critical delay values. These lead to the definite partition of stable and unstable regions on the $(\sigma-\tau)$ plane. Several examples are given to illustrate how to use this method to detect both Hopf and double Hopf bifurcations.
