Hairstyles for Oval Faces
The first step you should take in maximizing the potential of your oval face is to know this basic rule: never cover the perfection of your face shape. Your oval face is so ideal that you can even pull back your hair in a severe bun or pony tail and still look good. If you want proof, look for a woman who has a different shape of face, like the triangular or square or round face shape. Imagine the hair pulled back in a ponytail. The effect will be disastrous on them. On your oval face, you’ll just look like you are ready for serious work. Make the bun a little bit more stylish and complement it with sparkling earrings, you will get a chic up-do and look ready for an evening party.Keeping in mind the basic rule, there are hairstyles that you should always avoid. For example, you should avoid thick bangs that cover the shape of your face. If you should have bangs, consider other styles, like fringes, side swept bangs, or wispy bangs. If your hair is thick, never allow your hair to suffer a blunt cut. If your hair is curly, avoid short hairstyles because it will bury the femininity of the oval shape. It is best to keep a medium length to longer length of hair. Of course, if your hair is not curly, you will look good with pixie styles and short bobs.
And finally, whatever you do, avoid covering half of your face or adding short layers to add height to your head. If you made the mistake of instructing the inexperienced hairstylist to give you short layers, you will need to suffer for many weeks waiting for your hair to grow to a more desirable length, or you will need to keep wearing a hat.
Now that you have a fair idea on hairstyles that you should avoid, the next step is to focus on the features of your oval face. This is where the glamour comes in. Basically, you emphasize the beautiful features and downplay the not so attractive ones.
