Christina Augilera has hairstyles for an oval face

Women often choose their hairstyle to give the illusion of an oval face as it is considered to be among the most flattering. So if your face is naturally oval, congratulations. You can wear pretty much whatever style you like and it will look fabulous.

Let’s take a look at some of our favourite hairstyles for an oval face.

Short Hair

If you want a short style, the classic bob is a great style for an oval face. Add in an off-centre parting like Kiera Knightly and you’ll be framing your oval face perfectly.

You’re also lucky enough to be able to pull off a really short cut too, like Charlize Theron.

Medium Hair

Layers look great with an oval face and they can be used to highlight the part of your face you want to make a feature. Depending on where the layers are placed they can accentuate your cheekbones, your lips or your chin.

If you have an oval face, avoid your hair lying too flat against your face which can exaggerate its length. Some variation in layers and of course a bouncy blow dry are a great way to stop this from happening.
