Having an oval shaped face is a blessing for most women. This is because of the fact that oval shaped faces generally look good with almost any hairstyle. Lots of women who have oval faces should be thankful because they are able to pull off any look with the shape of their face. If you have an oval-shaped face like celebrities Jessica Alba, Paris Hilton and Oprah Winfrey, following the hottest hair trends is not always necessary and nor is it always an option.
Although the oval shaped face is considered the most balanced out of all face shapes, there can still be certain hairstyles or haircuts that can look your face longer or wider than you would want it to appear. Generally, here are four different sexy hairstyles for oval faces:
Balance the roundness and length of your oval face with full bangs and curly hair

- Short, layered hair – you can get your hair cut until it’s just a few inches short of what they would call a ‘boy cut’ but be sure to get layers. The layers will add volume to your hair and will prevent your hair from hugging your face, making it appear rounder. If you have a slightly bigger oval face, you might want to get fringes to make your face look less round and more oval.

- Long, straight hair – whether layered or not, oval shaped faces look good with longer locks if you are a little chubby. You can grow your hair to any length you want and keeping it straight will make your hair look more chic and sleek. Of course, again, you can choose to have fringes or bangs to reduce the roundness of your face.

- Casual bun or ponytail – it doesn’t matter if you have long, short, or medium-length hair, if you have an oval shaped face, you will look good in a casual bun or ponytail.

Having your hair in a bun or ponytail, gathered away from your face will reveal your beautifully balanced, oval-shaped face.
