Short Hairstyles for Oval Faces

Lucky for you oval shaped faced ladies, you suit almost any hairstyle as long as it doesn’t hide your features and is styled correctly. If you are lucky enough to have an oval shaped face but you’re either on the petite side, have a hectic life style or have thin hair then a short hairstyle is best for you. Why would you want to hide your amazing symmetrical features with long hair anyway?!

Layers are a must have to highlight your features, try layers that frame your face either picking out your cheeks or jaw which ever you think is your best feature.

For you super busy working mums why not try a graduated bob? Blast off the back with your hair dryer and use a large round brush at the sides. As long as your hair isn’t curly or really thick you will be good to go within 15 minuets with a super sleek sexy bob.

If you’re willing to be a bit daring a pixie crop would be great for your face shape!

Choose a strong bold colour with your pixie crop and see your ‘perfect’ features accentuated.

Pixie crops although short and very sassy can also be worn with variety – wear it smooth and sleek in the day, or styled and messy for a night out.

Why not team it with a sweeping side fringe like oval faced celeb Sarah Harding pictured here?
