Unlike with an oval-shaped face, styling hair with a round face may be challenging. Learn which hairstyles look flattering for your round face.
Lob = Long Bob
The goal is to slim your round face, so having layers will definitely do the trick. But it shouldn’t just be textured, it should also be long. Hence the lob, short for a long bob cut, possibly about shoulder length. Imagine Selena Gomez’s long fringes and layered locks.
You can go shorter than a bob, too. Try having a layered pixie. The layers still give your face the right angles to avoid looking round as an orange. Plus, when you opt for shaggy fringes, you’d look extra edgy like a rockstar princess.
Wearing bangs will help create a silhouette for your round face. But do away with full-on baby bangs as they only widen your face. Always go for side fringes, they create the illusion of a narrower, longer face. This works even more effectively when your side fringes come in different layers.
Soft Beach Waves
Does Drew Barrymore easily come to mind? Well, she exemplifies how long soft waves can work wonders for round faces. Beach waves add length and sultriness to a woman’s look. Don’t go for big well-defined curls as they only seem to create to the width of your face.
Classic Long Straight Hair
Yes, women with round faces can also sport plain straight hair pretty well. But make sure that the hair is parted in the middle to elongate the face.
