Hairstyles for Oval Face Shapes
Ovals have the ideal face shape for any hairstyle.
If you have an oval face shape, then consider yourself lucky! Ovals have the ideal face shape for any hairstyle so they can pretty much pull off whatever look they desire. If you have an oval face shape, your face will be three parts long to two parts wide (think of a smooth egg shape). There are also no major corners or angles on your face, meaning no squarish jawline, chin, cheekbones or forehead—everything will flow in one smooth line from top to bottom.
Now that we have established that you have the ‘perfect’ face shape (lucky you), it’s time to check out some of the most recent hairstyles seen on the red carpet for ovals. These are guaranteed to look good on you so give one a try if you are up for something new.
Starting off with a classy up-do, here is Anna Camp working a hairstyle that is just perfect for all the ovals out there. This high volume ‘do uses lots of backcombing on the top to create lift before the hair swept back into a high bun. Ovals looks great in slicked back hairstyles as well, but this loose and voluminous up-do really flatters the oval face shape and provides a cool look that can be worn day or night. For something a little more casual, wear a ponytail instead of a bun.
Nicole Mitchell shows off her smooth oval silhouette here in a short curly pixie cut. Not only do oval face shapes look amazing in short hairstyles, but styles like these that sit completely off the face work especially well. Nicole’s curls create gorgeous lift and volume at the top while the sides and ends are tapered in around the ear and nape of the neck. This is a wash and go hairstyle that is low maintenance but high style that oval ladies will love!
Wendi McLendon Covey has a classic oval face shape here and is wearing a simple blunt bob that works perfectly. Ovals have very smooth lines on their face so blunt and geometric cuts look amazing on them. Wendi’s bob is one uniform length with blunt ends, with a simple center part. This creates a swingy ‘do full of movement and style. Wendi’s monochromatic blonde hair colour also looks great here, and is a good tip for rocking a blunt bob: add extra style points by foregoing the highlights and stick to one rich, vibrant colour. Ladies who like a bit of forehead coverage can also add a chic blunt fringe here too!
Finally, oval Bella Thorne demonstrates just how good long and layered hair looks on an oval face shape. Bella has opted for a center part and waves in her jagged layered ‘do for a cool, trendy look. Her multi-tonal hair colour also looks amazing here as the shades of copper and blonde show off her layers. For a quick up-do, Bella would look fab with her hair swept up into a messy high ponytail or chic low chignon.
