Oval faces look great with hairstyles of all lengths. If you feel like changing your look without getting a new cut, just go wild on your styling! Use a styling appliance to tap the full versatility potential of your haircut and face shape: curls, sleek & straight, romantic waves – there’s (almost) no limit!
Short to medium lengths with lots of structure and body. A soft, wispy fringe and layers will add width and brings out the softness of your face. If you part your hair on the side, the asymmetry will provide a great balance to your features. Try soft, playful curls at the sides of your face to add fullness. And get that extra volume with a good blow-dry with diffusor attachment. Short to medium-length styles with wispy layers around your face and some wave or roundness will bring out the softness of your facial features. Part your hair on the side with a swept-away fringe for an asymmetric look that provides a great balance to the natural angles of your face. The best companion for square features is curls – which you can get fast and easily with a curler.
A good hairstyle would be one that accentuates your features or complements those features that are not your best. You want to try to no go to drastic from where you started, so that means if you have really long hair don’t drastically go immediately to a short cut, instead take off a little at a time, that way you can adjust as needed, because truth is if you go from one extreme then there is not a recovery period, you are stuck with the cut that you have. So just cut a little and make sure that it is one that highlights your features and take it from there. Inverted bobs are the in right now, that would be a great cut.
To find out what hairstyle would look good on you, you must figure out what your face shape is. Face shapes are usually defined as round, square, oval, heart shaped and sometimes rectangle. You need to find a haircut that frames the face and skims over the certain flaws that each face shape brings. You can find more information here: http://www.visual-makeover.com/face.htm
