Whether you need to get a trim because your split ends are getting on your nerves or you're just ready for a change, it can be good to get a new look. If you have an oval-shaped face you're in luck, because almost any style works with your face shape. The even proportion of your face allows you a lot of versatility, but there are still a few cuts in particular worth considering.
Choppy Short Layers
You can rock a choppy short layered 'do, as Tyra often does, and look just as chic. Just ask your stylist to give you choppy, shorter layers with a few face-framing layers put in. Add some thick, full bangs that hit just below the brow if you have a larger forehead. This covers the extra space up top and creates a nicer proportion on your face.
A bob cut -- whether you go for the more traditional straight-across bob or an angled bob cut -- works well on you because it draws the attention to your face, ending below your face. Or you can opt for a shorter or longer bob; just keep the longest bits above your shoulders.
With your oval face, you can wear long hair well. Opt for longer layers or a straight-across cut; either way your face doesn't look too elongated. You can even add some straight-across bangs or a side-swept fringe. If your face is on the longer side, simply parting your hair to one side can help.
A medium-length cut with the layers focused together around the ends -- tell your stylist you want soft layers that are about the same length -- is ideal for a gal with curly tresses. This breaks up the curl so you don't end up with a ton of bulk at the ends and removes a lot of weight from your hair, encouraging your curls to spring up and become more defined.
Talk to a stylist about what haircut will look best on you. Oval-shaped faces have the most versatility in terms finding a cut and style, but you may have specific features such as a large forehead, a larger chin or other feature that can help determine which specific cut can work best for you.
