Hair styles for oval faces


A friend called me yesterday and asked what’s hot for hairstyles for oval faces. She’s been wearing the same hairdo now for about 8 months and is ready for a change.  I don’t get asked that question often I suppose because women with her face shape can wear almost anything, you know, long, medium, short, with bangs or no bangs . . . blah, blah, blah.  But, that’s not all together true . . . if you have an oblong oval face and wear a long hair style without framing the face with layers . . . it will drag out your face and make it look longer. For example, Ann Coulter has pretty hair but . . .  it’s all wrong for her oblong face. Women with faces like Ann’s, need long face framing layers to add softness and width to the face. She could still wear it long, maybe just past the collar-bone, with long layers and a deep side part. Here are some more great looks:

A retro glam wave is hot right now whether it is worn short, medium or long. Put in a deep side part and make sure the top is styled flat to your head. Long face framing layers can be worn straight, curly or with wavy hair.  This is a simple style to create. See how Kate Winslet does her retro glam hairstyle at the Grammy’s.


A trendy mid-length hairstyle doesn’t get any easier than this! These long layered hairstyles for can be blow-dried and touched up with a curling iron to create a simple, casual look and just as easily put up into a ponytail, bun, braids or a twist.

These new pixie cuts on Jessica Stroup, Hayden Panttiere and Michelle Williams are so cute! This is the trendy short haircuts on the celebrities these days that I think we’ll be seeing crop up everywhere . . . at least for the brave, who get sick and tired of their long layered hair and want to make a new trendy statement!
