If you’re lucky enough to have an oval face shape, you can pull off almost any hairstyle and headband combo out there. You can play up your look with so much versatility, from volumized up-dos to long, wavy curls. This shape has the most balance, therefore, you have a lot of freedom when it comes to the type of headband you select as well. Having the ideal face shape, it’s important to make sure your headband is flattering your face, to make your natural beauty the center of attention. Since you already have the perfect proportions, you don’t have to add length or width to create an illusion – you already have it! Lucky you and congratulations!
Main characteristics of a typical oval face shape:
– Wider set cheekbones
– Narrow jawline
– Proportionate forehead
What to Avoid
You want to avoid adding length or width to your already proportionate face. You don’t want to add weight or height to the top or side of your head, either. That being said, it depends on what kind of hairstyle you currently have. If you have short hair, you’re going to want to make sure you have some volume on top to add some softness. Short hairstyles should avoid larger, statement headband pieces that can swallow your beautiful face shape. For oval face shapes, you’ll also want to avoid parting your hair down the middle. A nice, side-swept bang paired with a headband will help avoid from elongating your face.
Work with the natural shape of your face and let your natural beauty shine. You have the most versatile face shape out of all the shapes to have, so you’re lucky that you don’t want to work to hard to look great! The best tip for oval shapes is to keep it simple. You don’t need to wear any fancy headbands to help elongate or widen your face, so rock a headband that contrasts well with your hair colour. You still have many options, like sporting a glitter headband or even something with feathers. It’s totally up to your personality and your style.
Because you have so many options with an oval face shape, have fun with it! Just remember to not go overboard. You want the headband to enhance your face, not overpower it by becoming eye-catching for the wrong reasons. Thin, black staple headbands will also look great on your hairstyle.
