Bangs
To shorten the length of an oval face, opt for bangs. And to frame the eyes, have them curve just at the tips like Zooey Deschanel's.

Textured Bob
An oval face is thin around the jaw. Adding volume and movement with choppy, textured ends like Rita Ora's fills the space out.

Side Sweeping Bangs
A great way to camouflage how thin and straight an oval face is to create asymmetry. Side-swept bangs, like Kim Kardashian's, pull focus away from the face shape.

Pixie With Bangs
With a short cut like Jennifer Lawrence's, the face shape is clearly the focus of attention. Without hair on the sides to break up the long-ness of the face, bangs should be added—whether blunt cut or side-swept.

Face Framing Bob
By cutting the bob just above the jawline like January Jones', the cheeks are defined instead of putting emphasis on the jaw.

Side Part
For smaller foreheads that can't pull off bangs, a side part like Eva Mendes' is enough to create the illusion of asymmetry.

Shoulder-Length Curls
Body, body, body. Adding volume to the hair horizontally, like Christina Aguilera's gorgeous curls, fills the face.

Lift on Top
Carrie Underwood is a whiz at this. The singer always adds just a bit of height to the top of her hair. Hair that sits flat on top can actually elongate the face.

Brushed Out Waves
Forget the ringlets. Brushed out waves, like Blake Lively's, soften the features, making the jawline look less sharp.

Layers  
If your hair is straight and one length, the face will look significantly narrower. Adding even the slightest of layers, like Allison Williams', fills out the jawline.
