While they're are many hairstyles that will enhance your oval face shape, you might find that some are better suited to you than others. We encourage you to pick out the ones you like best and give them a go! Here we share our top picks for hairstyles that oval face shaped women should try!
Side swept bangs or fringes are a fab hairstyles that women with oval face shapes should try. Since oval faces are longer than they are wide, side swept fringes help to create the illusion of an equal balance by reducing the length of the face.
Long layers are also a great way to go for oval face shapes. Basically you want to avoid having hair that is all one length, as this tends to swamp the face as well as draws it out too much. Layers, on the other hand, will ensure your hair is of slightly different lengths to avoid this.
For oval faces it's often worthwhile having hair that is of a medium length (think shoulder length or just a tad longer), as this can significantly break up a face shape that's on the longer side, plus it adds softness.
Another hairstyles that will add softness to an oval shaped face is slight waves - think something similar to beach hair. An added bonus for this hairstyle is that it will also give your hair lots of volume, thanks to the soft and natural-looking waves.
Of course not all girls with oval shaped faces have long hair, so this one is for anyone with shorter hair who's after a great hairstyle to try! A short pixie hairstyle works well with both oval face shapes and preferably thinner hair over thick.
As we've said above, oval shaped faces are longer than they are wide, so basically hairstyles which reduce the length of the face are great options. Short bobs work well, for example, especially if the length is slightly above the chin.
Like a side swept fringe, blunt fringes or 'bangs' can also reduce the length of an oval shaped face, so that it appears more equal to the width. Another great reason to opt for a blunt fringe is that they will draw attention to your eyes, which is never a bad thing!
