Best Hairstyles For Oval Faces
A face shape is considered oval if the length is longer than the width, and the jawline is only slightly narrower than the hairline, which is gently rounded. An oval face shape has no prominent points. Some celebs you may recognize with an oval face include Jessica Alba, Rihanna, and Bella Hadid.
If you have an oval face shape, you’re in luck! This shape is considered to be most versatile for hairstyles, as it is usually quite well-balanced and evenly proportioned, so feel free to experiment.
Dos: Try out that RiRi pixie cut, take a risk with bangs, layer up your hair, or rock a middle part. The best hairstyles for oval faces include styles that keep your hair away from your face, exposing your best features. Side-swept bangs also look great on those with oval faces to frame your face as well as high-fashion, slicked-back looks, like the one below. Updos are super easy to create on oval shaped faces, as you do not need to overcompensate a certain side or think too hard about softening certain features.
Don’ts: When styling an oval face shape, try to keep the face as clear as possible. Steer clear of heavy bangs, as this could make your face appear shorter, and avoid hairstyles that are one length, as this could make your face appear longer. If you’re wearing your hair down, be sure to have either one or both sides tucked behind your ear showing off your cheekbones and beautiful face shape.
