There are different types of haircuts and choosing one can get real confusing. So, how to choose a hairstyle? One should always keep in mind some basic things when choosing a haircut style. These include your face shape, your hair type, and your lifestyle. It is very important to choose a hairstyle which goes with your face shape. There are some unsuitable hairstyles which on some face shapes make the face shape prominent while the facial features less prominent. This is undesirable. So, a hairstyle should be such that it makes the facial features more prominent than the face shape.
Another thing one needs to keep in mind is the hair type. Always go for a haircut which suits your hair type which can be curly, wavy, thin, thick, fine, etc. There are certain hair cutting techniques which can make the hair look thicker, thinner, or make the curls more well-defined. Lastly, keep in mind your lifestyle. So, choose a hairstyle which you will be able to manage with your lifestyle. For example a simple bob is easy to maintain, but a long layered hairstyle can be difficult to maintain. So, keep these things in mind and choose the hairstyle wisely. In the paragraphs below, I have mentioned the hairstyles that are suitable for oval face with thin hair.
Haircuts for Thin Hair and Oval Face
For women, pixie cuts and bobs are great hairstyle which suit almost all face shapes. They make the facial features stand out are very low on maintenance. For pixie cut, the hair on the back and sides is cut into short crops, and the crown hair is cut longer. The front hair is then cut into long side sweeping bangs. There are various types of bob which look good on oval face shape. No matter which kind of bob you get, make sure you keep the hair falling on the sides of the cheeks. Avoid tugging the hair behind the ear, as it will only make the face look more oval. Consider getting some bangs with your bob hairstyle, to make it look more stylish.
If you have medium hair then consider getting a choppy bob. To make it look more trendy, cut it into an inverted bob. You can keep the bob symmetrical or asymmetrical. On medium or long hair choppy layered styles look great too. Basically in choppy hair, point cutting is used where the stylist will hold the hair at an angle and cut it to a point. This makes the hair look thicker and fuller. So, get lots of choppy layers near the crown to add volume to the crown, this will make the oval shape of the face look less prominent. If you have really long hair then style them into curls so that they look even thicker.
For men with oval face and thin hair, spiky cuts, and crew cuts are good choice. For crew cut the hair on sides and back is shaved off with the top hair being cut into a flat crop. Spiky cuts are done by cutting the side hair and back into short crops and then the top hair is styled spiky using a strong hold gel. Some other good hairstyles for oval face are the faux hawk styles and choppy layered styles for men.
Faux hawk looks great and you can wear it to office or to the club. To get a faux hawk, cut the side hair into short crops and cut the middle hair tapering. Then style the middle hair upwards and forwards using an extra hold gel to create the faux hawk. Choppy medium layered styles for men are cut into pieces, the hair sections are placed in front of the ears and a lot of choppy bangs are given at the front. This style looks very cute on people with oval faces.
To make the hair look fuller consider getting lowlights. They are in fashion that add a subtle texture to the hair and are also milder compared to hair highlights.
