Celebrity Haircuts for Oval Face Shapes


Side swept bangs, volume at the crown, lose waves.
Key note: volume.
Also notice the subtle natural blush on her cheeks.

celebrity-long-hair-cutsA fuller side swept bang is harder to style but will cover an entire forehead. This is good for individuals with large forehead. Maintenance is required as bangs will grow out very fast. Again, lots of mid-length layers to add movement with shorter layers near the crown for volume.

long-face-hairstyles-2012-Jenifer Love Hewitt’s hair is sweet and flirty. Short bangs are not required. You can even use long layers to imitate this look. Just section a piece at the front, curve it outwards with a flat iron and then pin it towards the side. Balance the other side with small pieces to create balance and make sure you have volume at your crown as you pin half of your hair back. The loose curls beneath add dimension to the whole look.

long-faces-hairstylesTo keep long hair without looking sallow, add shorter layers at the front, around the face, and near the crown. Mask a large forehead by sweeping long bangs across it like Hilary Duff has here. This hairstyle is very low maintenance.

Take note of these versatile bangs. They can be worn to the side or towards the front. Face framing wispy layers take attention away from facial structure. Layers are consistently cut from the front to the back to create volume.


Bangs can also be cropped in the middle to mask a high forehead. Again, lose waves around the face add fullness.


A high forehead has cleverly been hidden with a low side swooping bang. A shorter length also adds fullness to Jeniffer’s face.


Medium length hair with long but curved bangs make Jessica Alba’s face look larger than it actually is.


Front bangs styled to be put at the side. Blow drying the direction of the bangs while hair is still wet will achieve this look.

A round brush while blow drying will achieve this look. Add serum for shine. This style contains lots and lots of layers which are slightly flipped and curled at the ends to add dimension to the entire look.


How to make a face look round

cute-short-bob-hairstyle-for-long-facesEyes: You want to elongate your eyes to increase width.

Hair: Shorter hairstyles with bounce, volume at the sides, and a front fringe disguise the long features of a face.

Cheeks: Add blush to the fleshy part of your cheeks. Try not to contour all the way up to your temples as this contours a face to look more defined. We want to add plumpiness so blush just on the cheeks is going to get the job done.

Eyebrows: Thicker brows give a more youthful look. Thin faces can look more youthful with a thicker brow.

LOVE the updo! Secret’s all in the teasing and hairspray.

Eyes: Extra Bold false lashes, pinks, deep blues, charcoal, layers of mascara.

I love the subtle makeup. She played up her eyes and kept everything else monotone. Her lips are a soft pearl, light peach blush. The gold earrings sophisticate the entire look.

No other accessories needed. A thick bracelet could be added.

Side Braid

Re-introduced by the ladies of “Gossip Girl,” part your hair from one side and french braid making sure the sides are as smooth as possible. You may want to start off with serum if you have freshly washed or rough hair.

Finish off with shine spray and hair spray to keep fly-aways down.

Dress it up with a loose bun or dress it down by leaving your hair down in beach waves.
