Finding a haircut for your face shape might feel daunting but it’s actually much easier than you think. While on the hunt for the best short haircuts for oval faces, you’ve probably tried many styles that either accentuate or hide your cherub-like cheeks and wider chin.
But the truth is, oval face shapes can pull off just about every kind of style. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite short haircuts for oval faces here to prove just that:
1. Lob Flip
You may have tried the lob haircut, the bob haircut, or even the pixie cut. But have you flipped your look with some vintage-inspired waves? When you get this classic cut, be sure to ask your hairstylist to upgrade it a bit with gentle and mild waves. This cool look will smoothen out your oval face as you showcase a hip and modern style. Add some bobby pins on the side for a sweat-free style.
2. Straight Bob
Those with straight hair can wear a classic bob haircut with ease. Complete it with a set of bangs to let your cut define your natural features.
3. Shaved Edge
Another option is to take the length off your neck while simultaneously illuminating your full cheeks.
4. Choppy Layers
Short haircuts for oval faces with choppy layers also look good on your face shape! We love how this length adds dimension to your face while also creating a distinct style. Add some bangs to this look to add even more definition to your frame.
5. Pixie Cut
You can go high or mellow with your pixie as you showcase the roundness and definition in your oval face.
6. Cropped Pixie
Keep your pixie closely cropped for a modern and edgy style that will quickly become a favorite.

Wear your bob straight, short and edgy. Prep your strands before you straighten them with TRESemmé Get Sleek Heat Protection Spray.

Mix color and length with this rooted undercut. Draw attention to your unique and angular face shape with this bold and daring style.
Use a dime-sized amount of Nexxus Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel to create this spiked and gravity-defying look.
10. Spiked Up
Brush your pixie up and away to elongate your face shape even further.
11. Choppy Bob
Brush your choppy layers over to one side to add instant volume and dimension to your look.
