If you have medium hair, a great hairstyle for the oval face is one that is slightly teased and tossed on the sides while the bangs rest gently upon the forehead. This is an awesome style that really brings attention to the mouth area on the face.

If you have full, defined lips, you may elect to bring out your features by implementing this particular hairstyle. If it is short hair that you have, the short spiky look is a great way to bring out all of those wonderful facial features – just remember to keep the bangs off of the face.

As listed here, the hairstyles for the oval face shape are extremely flexible. This is deemed as the "perfect” facial shape among all hairstylists. Enjoy anything, do everything!
