You pretty much hit the beauty jackpot because practically all hairstyles look good on girls with oval-shaped faces. Take advantage of what you’ve been #blessed with by changing it up and playing around with these rad looks.
Celeb hairstylist Suyen Salazar gave this trendy cut to Gabs Gibbs a few months back. Full disclosure: micro bangs (as they’re more commonly called) are pretty high maintenance, so try clip-in bangs or a wig if you’re not ready to fully commit.
When you mix and match this hair accessory with your summer outfit, the possibilities will be endless. Check out your options here.
Slick It Back
Whether your hair is long or short, slicking it back with a water-based gel is the best and easiest way to look extra glam and confident.
A Clean Pony
It doesn’t matter if you wear it high or low. The point is to pull back your strands, so your face can be the center of attention.
Tip: Use a boar-bristle brush for a cleaner sweep and then tame rebellious strands with a toothbrush that’s lightly misted with hairspray.
This supercool style will require some French braiding skills, but it’ll be worth it—especially if you’re growing out your bangs.
A high chignon is a great way to add more lift to your face and highlight fantastic cheekbones as well. Don’t forget to make it look more modern and less stiff by pulling a few face-framing tendrils loose around your ears.
These were probably the clips they used to keep her hair in place behind-the-scenes, but you get the idea. Cute barrettes are back and this is pretty much how you would wear them.
The Barely-There Wave
The best part about messy-sexy looks? They’re super easy to do! Just wear your hair in a loose bun while you sleep and you’ll wake up to textured waves in the morning.
The Cool Half-Up
A half pony can be seen as basic, but there are ways you can make it more current. Take your inspo from this pic by creating twisties (and subtle waves) before securing them and adding a chic accessory to bring the sections together.
It’s a soft and very sexy look—especially when they’re a little side-swept. Just use your fingers to roughly dry your fringe and apply a small amount of hair clay to keep them piece-y.
Girl Next Door Vibes
This sweet and simple style allows you to highlight and soften your features at the same time. All you have to do is comb one side of your strands upwards (start from above the ear) before securing it with a few bobby pins. Don’t forget to do a deep-side part, too!
It’s not exactly a braid, but it’s not exactly a ponytail either. After loosely curling your strands, pull your hair over your shoulder and divide it into two sections. Twist loosely until you reach the ends and secure with an elastic. Don’t forget to mist the tail with hairspray to keep everything in place.
A center part, laidback waves, and a nude-ish lip are all you need to pull of this look. The key to pulling it off? Blow dry your strands before you start curling them. It's more effort, but it’ll help create smoother, frizz-free, and shiny waves.
A Curly Bob
Curls are currently trending in the beauty world—especially when they’re worn short. To help control any frizz and manage extra volume, try scrunching in some mousse at the top and applying a curl defining cream from the middle to ends before softly blasting strands with a diffuser.
They’re not just for brides anymore. If you’re feeling extra or just want to try something new for the ’gram, buy a few yards of illusion tulle or French netting from the fabric store, pin it on, and get creative.
Flyaway with Flair
If Charlize Theron can do it, so can you. Instead of struggling to tame your flyaways, why not embrace them instead? All you need is a frizz-fighting product (like a potent leave-in conditioner or a texturizing cream) to help turn it into a casual-yet-chic and piece-y look.
Fresh From the Beach
Whether you’re at the beach or not, misting a little sea salt spray into damp strands is a look that’ll definitely be envy-worthy.
Tip: Ditch the part and create a little wave at the top of your head to make it look even cooler.
Allure revealed that Bella Hadid’s retro-inspired pixie is actually a wig! Be that as it may, we still think that the swooped bangs and wispy sideburns are a gorgeous way to channel your inner supermodel and style short hair.
A Low Chignon
This classic look totally elegant and smart, which is probably why the Royals tend to go for this ’do on several occasions. Here’s a no-fuss take on it: Create a low ponytail and twist two strands into a rope braid. After that, wrap your hair tightly around the base of the ponytail until it forms a bun and start pinning around it to secure its shape.
Don’t want to deal with your hair? An easy fix (without having to resort to the basic pony) is to wear a turtleneck and leave your strands tucked inside. You can do this to create the illusion of a a faux bob, too!
K-Pop stars to Hollywood celebs are definitely digging the double space buns look. To do, simply tie your hair into high pigtails and wrap the ends around the base before pinning them into place. Super easy, right?
Movie Star Curls
Need to make an appearance? Whether you have a wedding or a big event to attend, walking in with big, sexy curls is a great way to make an entrance. Just remember to run a boar-bristle brush through them to help add texture and loosen them up.
Sleek & Wet
Based on her most recent Vogue cover, it’s easy to say that Kim Kardashian has definitely mastered this look. Watch this clip for fab tips on how Kim’s mane man, Chris Appleton, created this exact hairstyle.
