The Best Haircuts for Oval Shaped Faces

If you are one of the lucky woman who has an oval face shape then you can get away with basically everything, but of course there are certain hair cuts that are tremendously flattering. Structured straight hair cuts are elongating, that is why shaggy and wavy is always recommended for oval faces.

For straight or wavy hair it is best to cut layers at the lips, chin, and cheekbones, depending on which facial features you want to highlights. Adding blunt bangs that hit right above the high to accentuate the cheekbones and eyes, if you want to draw attention to your lips or chin then cut a long side-sweeping bang.

An oval face shape that also has natural textured and curly hair then choppy shaggy layers are perfect. They give your curly hair a more relaxed texture that will lie softly. The right hair cut is important; the layers should cut out bulk and thin the hair because you do not want the curls to pouf and frizz out.
