Oval Face Shape Hairstyles
Understanding your face shape can you help you choose the best hairstyles, eyewear and makeup to compliment your features. Knowing your face shape helps you create balance and proportion by working with your features. It’s never about hiding or changing your perfectly shaped face…it’s about having fun and playing with different elements to bring out the best of your beautiful features.
An Oval Face Shape is balanced in terms of the length and width without an angular jawline. You can really have fun playing with different hairstyles, eye wear and makeup with an oval face shape.

Don’t be afraid to try pixie cuts, longer styles with face framing layers and medium styles with volume. Check out our All That, Sassy and Beach Babe below.
Try frames that are as wide or slightly wider than the broadest part of your face. You can choose a classic rectangular shape, a retro cat-eye, or a square or round frame.
Balance your eyes and lips. If you do a strong eye then go more nude or natural on the lips. If you go with the ‘just kiss me now’ bold lip color go with more natural eyes.
Follow the natural shape of your brow. Don’t over pluck them and keep the lines clean. Don’t be afraid to experiment filling in your eye brows with all great options available. As we grey our eyebrows can grey as well, and a little brow color can go a long way to accentuate your eyes
Try dusting highlight powder along the bridge of your nose, your forehead and the top of cheekbones to help your oval-shaped face glow.
