Flattering hairstyles for oval-shaped faces

If you have an oval face shape, consider yourself extremely lucky. Oval face shapes are extremely proportionate, and therefore most haircuts and hairstyles end up looking extremely flattering on them.

Here is a list of hairstyles that are definite winners when it comes to enhancing the best features of oval-shaped faces.


Choppy long bob

Of late, a lot of celebrities and influencers with medium length hair have been seen sporting the long bob. Also known as the lob, it ends just below shoulders and gives your hair some extra body and movement. This makes it an amazing haircut for people with thin and fine hair. Since you have an oval-faced shape, the choppy layers frame your face beautifully and give it more definition.

Give it a clean mid-parting and spritz some finishing hair spray to tame flyaways and add shine. This hairstyle not only looks extremely polished, but also accentuates your cheekbones.
