Oval face’s length is approximately one and a half times its width. Oval-shaped faces are considered the perfect facial shape and can handle a variety of wig styles. Correction of the face with hair should be aimed at creating the illusion of an oval. If you want to emphasize the oval shape of the face, tie your hair to the back or at the top of the head. You can also wear a short curly hair wig or a long straight hair wig with a parting in the center. Although if you have a low forehead, the latter hairstyle will not fit, as well as hairstyles with straight fringes. These celebrities have an oval face: Selma Hayek, Julianne Moore, Kate Middleton, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Connelly, Sharon Stone, Beyonce.
A round face has a wide front hairline and full cheeks. If you want to narrow your face visually, you should wear short hair wigs with longer front hair that hides cheeks. Round-shaped faces look best with a wig that has an off-center part that draws the eye to one side of the facial area and tousled side bangs instead of bangs that are severely cut and flat across the forehead. Women with round faces should not wear lush hairdos covering ears and foreheads. The hair should slightly frame their cheeks or be completely set back. Fashionably backcombed hair will visually improve the shape of her face.
