If you want to wear your curly hair at a longer length, opt for sweeping layers that fall in graduated slices down the length of hair, to accentuate the elegant symmetry of your oval face shape. Remember that choosing to wear your hair curly or blown out straight can dramatically affect the length of hair, so take this into account when deciding how much you want to cut.
If you have highly textured hair
Since an oval head shape has even proportions all around, it’s especially important that your cut be even, or else longer pieces will instantly distract and draw attention. Be sure to first straighten coarse strands before snipping to ensure a precise cut.
Using the hair’s natural volume to create shape around the oval curvature of the head can transform hair into a statement-making accessory. Bob lengths can go for a power punch of halo-like volume, while longer lengths should extend below the chin to at least the neck, so that the face isn’t overwhelmed with too round of a shape.
Super-short hair should be cut with piecey layers for a tousled feel that captures the natural wave of highly textured hair. “Halle Berry is a great example of the original Audrey Hepburn pixie cut, but done in a textured version. It brings out strengths like bone structure and glowing skin,” says Guido.
