Hairstyles for Oval Faces: Cuts for every Shape

If you're lucky enough to have been born with an oval face, congratulations: you have one of the most versatile shaped faces when it comes to choosing a hairstyle. However, this doesn't mean that there aren't bad oval face hairstyles out there – unfortunately they exist for every face shape. What it does mean is that you're more spoiled for choice than most when it comes to finding the best hairstyle for oval faces. If you're not sure whether or not you have an oval-shaped face, simply take a good look at yourself in the mirror. If your forehead is slightly broader than your chin, your cheek bones narrow and your jawline tapered – you know you're officially part of the club.

The Blunt Bob

Bobs make excellent hairstyles for oval faces

Getting a blunt bob perfectly frames oval faces

For those with an oval face, bob hairstyles like the blunt bob are a good go-to, everyday style that you can put together without too much hassle. It's also ideal for framing the face, using your hair's natural parting to spread the hair to either side of your face. Depending on your tendencies, you can also wear the bob longer or shorter, introduce some curly bangs or straighten your hair for a sleek and shiny look. A bob is a great versatile hairstyle for an oval shaped face for those who get bored easily and enjoy change. 

Long with Curved Bangs

For those who like a bit of length, this shoulder-length long hairstyle for oval faces with curved bangs allows you to keep it long while also adapting to the shape of your face. The bangs serve to both frame your face and give your forehead a shorter appearance. However the look isn't hard; since the bangs aren't blunt, they soften the eyes and transition organically into the length of your hair, rather than squaring your face.

Beach Waves

Oval face haircuts are well styled with beach waves

Long beach waves look effortlessly cool on all face shapes

For those who are looking to channel their inner bohemian, beach waves hair is a great oval face haircut to achieve this. It's a playful and carefree look (although it might take a little bit of manipulation to achieve) that suits an oval-shaped face wonderfully. If your hair isn't naturally wavy, you'll have loosely curl your hair with a curling hair, add some wave-enhancing product, and tousle it apart loosely to achieve this look.
