Knowing where to part your hair isn’t just about your face shape, of course. It also depends on the proportions of your facial features. With that in mind, let’s look at the ideal styles for delicate features on an oval face.

Delicate Features

The center part almost always looks good on people with classically beautiful proportions, like Megan Fox.

Obviously, Megan Fox would look good with any hairstyle. But when she has straight hair, I think she looks better with a center part…

…than with a side part.

The center part makes her hair fall evenly down the sides of her face, whereas the side part seems to make the top of her head look flat and blocky.

The center part only works when her hair is down, though. It tends to look too harsh and angular when up:

When her hair is curly, I think she looks equally good either way. Whether with a center part…

Or with a side part:

She doesn’t look as good here, but I think that’s because having all her hair swept to one side is making her look imbalanced. You’ll also notice the part got a bit messed up near her hairline.

So if you have an oval face and delicate features, you probably look best with your hair in a center part when it’s straight, and a neat side or center part when it’s curly.
