The Best Hairstyles For My Oval Face Shape

Ever left the salon thinking “Why doesn’t my haircut look as good as the photo I showed them?”

Well, it has a lot to do with your face shape. Certain lengths, layering and hairstyles will expose, cover, flatter and flaunt parts of your face. This can be a determining factor in how a hairstyle looks on you, and why Jennifer Anniston’s bob doesn’t look the same on you as it does on her. Why? Face Shape.

If you are not sure exactly what your face shape is, don’t worry. We already have a previous edition of #HairTalk where we discuss all the different face shapes which you can read by clicking here.

In this weeks edition of #HairTalk, we go more in depth on the Oval Face Shape, and what hairstyles suit it best.

What Is The Oval Face Shape?

To analyse your face shape, pull your hair out of your face and have a close look at what you can see in the mirror.

With an Oval face shape, the forehead may be slightly wider than the chin, and the length of the face is longer than the width.

Also, the jawline is slightly narrower than the hairline. See Below for some examples. 


What Hairstyles Will Suit The Oval Face Shape?

An oval face shape is one of the most versatile ones due to its well-proportioned shape compared to other face shapes.

If you have an Oval Face Shape, you are in luck!  

This is because the Oval Face Shape allows you to go with most hairstyles, whether it is long or short.

Most hairstyles will look great with an oval face shape. It will come down to your hair texture, density and how much length you’ve got to play with to decide with your hairdresser on what your hair will do and not do.  

Here are some styles in particular that we think really look great on an Oval Face Shape:

Blunt Bob Above The Shoulder

Long Bob (LOB)

Shoulder Length Cut with Subtle Layers

Side Swept Bangs

Sleek Hairstyles

Celebs With An Oval Face Shape:

Celebs such as Kim Kardashian, Kate Middleton, Jessica Alba, Bella Hadid, Beyoncé & Julia Roberts all have Oval Face Shapes. You can see some of the styles they’ve had below.
