Q
I have an oval face. I find it hard trying to find the perfect hairstyles. I enjoy wearing curls and long hair, but will this type of style work for my face shape? I need your help! —Joy

A
Congratulations! An oval facial shape is considered the most desirable shape because it can wear almost any style. Long, curly hair can be so beautiful, so go for it. Take time to look at your other features as well, If your hairline is weak, instead of wearing hair back and off your face, you may want to bring hair toward the face to camouflage your hairline. If your eyes are a strong feature, you’ll want to show them off. A side part allows your eyes to shine. If you have a long neck, consider if this is a feature you want to show off or make invisible. Longer hair lengths will diminish the long neck appearance. In sum, all features should be taken into consideration when choosing a hairstyle.
