Hairstyles for Oval-Shaped Faces

If you have an oval-shaped face, you have probably been referred to as one of the lucky ones more than once because the oval shape has long been recognized to be “the perfect shape.” What this means is that most hair styles would look great on you so it would come down to flattering your best facial features. You might even be pleased to know that when hair stylists create new looks, they automatically use the oval shape as their main frame. The shape is versatile allowing the style to look good easily.

The Basics of Choosing a Hairstyle for the Oval Shape

  • If you are thinking of layering, short layers will accentuate the lower part of your face. If your lips and smile are your best facial features, then it would be a style that would fit you well.

  • If you have thick, curly hair, layering may look better if you keep the hair length long instead of cropping it short. A short blunt, layered cut will accentuate your cheekbones and give widen your face instead of keeping it a lovely oval shape.

  • Be more conscious of finding a hair style that would fit your hair texture and hair volume since most hair styles are expected to look good on you

Pointers for Women with Oval-Shaped Faces

It’s important for oval shaped face ladies, like you, to have hairstyles that inevitably reflect your personality and fit your lifestyle. You might also want to consider a hairstyle that can be wavy one day and pin straight the next day. This means not getting a full perm or a style that is too edgy.

Most essential is that you keep your hair healthy. Regardless of your hairstyle or face shape, good hair will always trump a good hairstyle. To get healthy hair, you need to have a good diet and sufficient sleep. You should also avoid too much styling products on your hair or not being picky about what products you use.

Wonderful Hair Styles to Choose From

If you want short hair, try a square hairstyle. The hair should frame your cheekbones gently and not be too blunt or shaggy. That would be hiding your beautiful shape instead of emphasizing it.

If you want medium length hair, look to photos of Jessica Alba with her layers and soft curls. The style should fall gently along the neck area and layered with some lengths going down further to the shoulders. If you can ask your stylist for a corrugated style, this would accent your oval shape and frame your face beautifully.
