We girls know that looking for a new hairstyle is never an easy feat. Aside from having to pick a cut that's modern and trendy, it's important to make sure that your new 'do will flatter not just your lifestyle, but your face shape as well! We've given you the lowdown on the most flattering cuts for girls with a round face. Now, we're listing down the best cuts for girls with the most versatile face shape—oval. So scroll down and take your pick to show to your hairstylist before making the cut.

Choppy Bob

It's no secret that almost all hairstyles work well for girls with an oval face shape. But for an extra flattering cut, opt for a choppy bob that hits just above your jawline to draw attention away from the jaw and keep it messy and shaggy for an illusion of thicker hair.

Bangs, Bangs, Bangs


Whether you get a full fringe or a feminine side-swept bangs, bangs are a great way to define your facial features while still staying on trend.

Layer it!

Long hair looks amazing on girls with an oval face shape. Throw in layers into the equation to give your 'do for extra flair. Plus, layers help frame your face better, too. Double yay!

Keep it wavy.

Volume is key to balance your longer face shape. Keep your tresses loose and wavy for a soft and feminine hairstyle. 

Pixie Cut

A pixie cut is definitely not for the faint at heart and it's not an easy 'do to rock either. If you're feeling bold and got an oval face shape to boot, go ahead and rock a pixie 'do. After all, there's no one else that can rock this style better than a girl with an oval face shape.
