Oval Face Hairstyles: 10 Sexy Haircuts You'll Want To Rock In 2017
2017, here you come!
With 2016 coming to an end (thank goddess, are we right?) you've probably already started thinking ahead to 2017 and the fresh start you want to have.
Drink more water? Yes. Wash your face every night? Yup. Get a great new haircut? You bet.
Out of those three, the easiest might just be finding the perfect hairstyle. And if you have an oval face, well, the video above is your perfect guide to landing the sexiest haircut of 2017.
For all you with an oval face out there, like Rihanna, well congratulations, there are plenty of haircuts that will look fabulous on you. Oval faces are versatile with their slightly wider cheekbones and narrow forehead and jaw. This means, you have the perfect shape to rock everything from sleek bangs to wavy bobs, Kate Middleton's layered curls to Emma Watson's pixie cut.
For a simple, works-on-everyone style, try the look favored by Jennifer Aniston. "The shortest layer should be 2 to 4 inches from the end of your hair," says Lacy Redway, Head & Shoulders celebrity stylist. "That will give you movement and shape." It's not necessary to add product unless you want to. "And you only need to get it trimmed every 3 months," says John Frieda international creative consultant Harry Josh.

For women whose hair is straight or has a subtle wave, this cut is a no-brainer, according to Marcus Francis, Suave Professionals celebrity stylist. "You don't have to put much work into it," he says. "Part it on the side and tuck it behind your ear, like Sienna Miller, or section it down the middle and add volume at the crown. There are so many variations." To give it that textured finish, scrunch some beach spray (try Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray, $5) throughout hair and either let it air dry or hit it with a blow-dryer. "But not one of those fussy blow-dries," Francis says. "Just use your fingers."
A style that needs to be trimmed every 4 to 6 weeks may not seem low-maintenance, but when hair is as closely cropped as Rihanna's, "it really is wash-and-go,” Redway says. "Depending on your hair texture, you might not require any product at all."
