Coco Chanel once said, “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life”. Come to think of it, how true were her words? A makeover needn’t just be a change in outfit, it’s larger than that! It could well be getting a new haircut that complements a woman’s personality and charm. The first step to getting the perfect haircut is to know your face shape. Broadly there are six face shapes: round, square, oblong, oval, heart and diamond. If you have an oval face, you’ll notice that your face is broader at the centre while tapering towards the ends. Your forehead too will appear larger than your jawline. Now that you know for a fact that you have an oval face, let’s find the best haircut for you! Here are 12 haircuts for oval face.
If you want your face to look well-structured and slim, wavy layers should be your go-to haircut. Highlight them in your favourite hue and flaunt them to the world by wearing an off-shoulder dress and clipping on a couple of pretty hair accessories.
Do you know which haircut will look fab for medium length hair? A LOB! We think it’s perfect for thin or fine hair because the choppy layered cut will add volume to your mane. To take your look up a notch, opt for a sexy side-swept style and give it an ombre colour job.
Bangs draw the attention away from your forehead to your eyes and lips. You should totally give brow-skimming bangs, long bangs or side-swept bangs a shot! However, be a little careful, make sure the bangs are not cut too short if you are doing for a straight bangs look.
Layers are a cut that will never go out of style. This cut looks fresh, chic and modern. A layered cut with soft highlights is bound to make you the centre of attention wherever you go. To add more character to your look, wearing a thin hairband will fetch you a bunch of compliments.
