Stop for a second and congratulate yourself. You've landed the most versatile face shape. You can wear almost any hairstyle. Just be careful, with a bad haircut, your face can start to look long. Like mine. But hey, life isn't so bad with a long face.
Styles That Work Best on an Oval Face
The oval face is the most versatile shape. You can pull off almost any look: short or long, straight or wavy or even one of the funkier, edgier hairstyles. To find your most flattering style, consider your best feature and highlight it with your hair cut.
If you have gorgeous bone structure, consider an angular bob that shows off your chin. Great eyes? Blunt or side-swept bangs are a great bet. See my gallery of the best bangs by face shapes for more information on bangs.
Styles To Avoid on an Oval Face
Short layers that add height on top of your head. Aside from being dated, short layers can make your face appear long. If your hair is thick or curly, avoid a blunt cut. You'll look like a pyramid. If you have curly hair, short hair is generally a no-no (see "10 Secrets to Styling Curly Hair"). Try shoulder-length or longer to weigh down curls.
