Hairstyles for oval face shape

If you have an oval face shape, you have very balanced, proportional features. Your chin, cheekbones, and forehead are almost the same size, so you don’t have to create the illusion of symmetry with your hairstyle. This means you can cut your hair almost any way you want and look fantastic!

The only hairstyles you should avoid are ones that lack volume. Straight, flat hairstyles will make your face appear longer than it is and drag your features down.

Glasses for oval face shape

In general, most glasses will look good with an oval face shape. You can try a glass with angular frame to add some structure. To keep the natural balance, try to pick a frame that is as wide as the broadest part of the face.
