Oval Face: Most Versatile Face Shape for Any Hairstyle: Part One

Styles for Oval Faces Part One

Many experts say that the oval-shape face is the ideal form for balance in beauty. The oval face is longer than it is wide, your cheekbones are the widest part of your face, and your jaw is soft without any sharp angles or points. A wide variety of hairstyles are suited to this face shape. So women who believe they do not have this standard shape will go for hairstyles that will give the oval illusion. Hairstylists also do.

Celebrities with famous oval-shape faces are Jennifer Aniston and Charlize Theron. Aniston’s locks represent one of the best haircuts for an oval face; her hair has Long Layers that hang perfectly at the cheekbones; it’s longer in the back and shorter in the front. Shoulder-Length Loose Waves and Long Waves are always flattering. The first style falls gently on or around the shoulders; not be too long or it will drag the face down. The second style is longer and softly layered to counter the heaviness; it can also be styled swept away from the face to show the cheekbones.

Curtain Bangs

Curtain bangs, which have shorter pieces above the eyes and gradual longer lengths toward the outer eyebrows, compliment oval faces. Any style curtain bangs – deep side, middle, and sideswept – work well.

The Polished Pixie is an oval face enhancer. All facial features are on display, cheekbones are lifted, and jawline, chin, and forehead remain delicate. To add shine and control the fringe, adding pomade is recommended. The Grown-Out Edgy Pixie is a gutsy, sophisticated blend of a pixie that has grown out and with choppy layers. Accessorizing it can be fun.
