  • I agree with LeJane. there is no wrong haircut. I have an oval face also and I can pull of something as short as Rihannas hair, and long wavy locks like blake lively.

  • Oval is the face shape other face shapes try to mock..

    Oval is the ideal face shape and can look great with all styles...

    BUT... other facial features such as profile can have an impact as well... Just because your face is oval does not mean you have a perfect face for all styles always. As will your hair texture and density and your hair line.

    A straight profile is ideal, but if you have a convex profile (profile that has receding forhead and chin) you should have curls or bangs over the forehead and keep the style close to the head at the nape with a foreward sweep toward the chin.
    and a concave profile has a prominent forhead and chin.. you want to stay away from styles that build hair add the forhead and have a slight curve out at the nape.

  • it hide close set or wide set eyes, a crooked nose, wide, flat nose, long narrow nose, small nose, or large nose, a round jaw, long jaw, receding jaw, square jaw, small chin, or large chin, and the hair line can determine also what styles suit you best.

    so while yes, oval faces typically are the ideal face shape there are other features you want to consider as well while determining your hair style.
