Advice for the Oval Face Shape

The Oval Face Shape is considered by most to be the ideal shape. You can choose almost any hairstyle and any length. Your only consideration will be to select a length and style that will fit in with your lifestyle and personality.

However, if you have any sharp features such as a long nose, high cheekbones, or a prominent chin you would like to soften, it would be best to choose a hairstyle that has an overall look that is natural and soft, since this will achieve the softened effect.

Although many styles of hats will suit you by far, the best are those that have large brims that are either floppy or straight. Always keep your proportions in mind when you select the size of your hat. If you are short or have a small bone structure, you could easily be overpowered or made top-heavy by a hat that is too large for you (and visa versa).

Most styles and shapes will work well on your face shape. The best glasses are as wide as your face, however, they do not have to repeat the shape of your face.  Make sure eyewear and earringsare in scale with your physical size and personality.
