Hairstyles For Oval Shaped Faces

If the length of your face is longer than the width of your face, it is classed as an oval shaped face. Often your jaw line will be slightly narrower that your hairline. Your hairline will be gently rounded too.

In this blog post we look at the celebrities that have oval shaped faces. We then recommend great hairstyles for oval shaped faces, and discuss hairstyles for oval shaped faces that you need to avoid.

Best Hairstyles for Oval Shaped Faces

The one thing you need to remember is to avoid elongating your face. If you want shorter hair then consider a blunt bob that has face framing features. Shoulder length hairstyles work really well with your face shape too. Subtle layers that add volume will stop your hairstyle from looking flay and will help frame your face too. Long hairstyles work great with oval shaped faces too, especially when matched with side-swept bangs.

Hairstyles for Oval Shaped Faces to Avoid

While we said that oval shaped faces are the most versatile and can work with almost any hairstyle, there are some key rules to remember. When looking at hairstyles for an oval shaped face remember to keep the face as clear from hair as possible. Heavy bangs are a bad ideas too as they can make your face appear shorter.
