Drink more water? Yes. Wash your face every night? Yup. Get a great new haircut? You bet.

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.

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."

"Since it's all one length, you don't have to worry about growing out of the style," Redway says. "That means you can go longer between trims." According to Redway, this cut works on any hair texture, including relaxed. To style à la Rita Ora, add mousse to wet hair (a good one is Kérastase Resistance Volumifique, $42), blow-dry, then go over the hair with a flat iron (Redway likes Harry Josh Pro Tools Ceramic Styling Iron, $175), and add a touch of serum (such as John Frieda Original Six Effects Serum, $6.

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."
