20 most flattering hairstyles for round faces December 5, 2019
Let’s be honest. Round faces are hard to style. No matter what you do with your hair, the ultimate goal is always to hide your cheeks. This leaves not much room for experiments with different styles. And let’s not even begin by looking at how your round face makes you look like a little kid if you just want to look like a nicey woman. But if we told you that there are styles – many styles – that could flatter your round face? Do not believe us. Read on and see for yourself.
But first, let’s talk about how to tell if you have a round face.
That’s how you determine if you have a round face
You have a round face if:
- Your forehead, cheekbones and chin line fall in the same line and have almost the same width.
- The width and length of your face are about the same size.
- They have soft features and no sharp angles in your face.
Now that you’re sure you’ve got a round face, let’s look at some simple tips that you can use to choose hairstyles that will complement your round face perfectly.
Tips and tricks for styling your hair for your round face
- Your main concern when styling your hair should be to give your face more length. High updates and bumps are a great way to increase the height of your head.
- Long, layered hair pulls down and makes your round face look longer.
- If you want a curly look, lure loose. Tight curls only add to the width and roundness of your face.
- Avoid a ponytail look as it pulls all your hair back and away from your face, highlighting its roundness.
- While you need to stay away from straight-cut ponies that make your round face appear too small, snappy, sideways-curved bangs will add some much-needed angles to your face and make it look thinner.
- If you want a short hair look, always make sure to add volume at the head tip to make your face look longer than it actually is.
Take note of these few simple tips. Now let’s take a look at the best hairstyles for women with round faces!
1. Short bob with side swept bangs
Remind me to take lessons from Hayden Panettiere on how to look nicey and sweet at the same time. Just look at her bombshell style! While the straight short bob gives her face more length, her edgy lateral pony adds angles that counteract his roundness.
2. Big Swoop Bangs
The American lover Kelly Clarkson ensures that the sought after hairstyle flatters her round face. While the short curly bob for a round face would have been an absolute no-no, she manages to rock the look by combining it with big bangs that push down her face and tighten the upper face.
3. Voluminous waves
Now here’s a look that will turn you into a total bomb. Kelly Osbourne has opted for a wave-like style whose volume hides most of her cheeks. In the middle, the dent of her waves breaks up perfectly on the cheekbones and changes the round silhouette of her face.
4. Smooth long hair
Mila Kunis has a perfectly round face. Is she preventing her from being one of Hollywood’s biggest actresses? We all know the answer to this question.
A good hairstyle for a round face is the long, sleek look. This hairstyle framed the face without adding much volume. Since a round face lacks the length, it is ideal to wear long hair straight and straight. It deceives the eye, creating the illusion of length and definition. This hairstyle is also suitable for finely structured hair because of its ability to move, and you can always give the crown a little volume and shape.
5. Long hair with layers
Who does not want the same hair as the most beautiful woman in the world? ? What makes it so much easier is that she (Aishwarya Rai, I mean) has done something that anyone can do. That means having your hair cut in layers. But there is one thing you have to keep in mind. Make sure that the layers do not end exactly at the chin, whether you have straight or curly hair. As you do so, attention is focused on the roundness of the face, rather than acting longer. Longer layers give the face an oval shape, helping to create an illusion of lesser width.
6. Long hair with fringes
Do not you want to layer? No problem. Getting a fringe is another option to break the monotony. But do not take a short, dull fringe – it only emphasizes the roundness of the face. A long, fine pony looks good and goes well with fine hair. And if your hair is thicker, a longer pony that you can stroke aside will lengthen your face.
7. Middle vertex
Drew Barrymore has the roundest faces. Here she has chosen a middle section that makes her face appear longer and slimmer. Choose this hairstyle if you are looking for a casual and effortless hairstyle.
8. Curly hair
Here’s a thought – just because you have a round face does not mean that you just want to hide it with your hair. There are many styles that flatter your face while emphasizing the curves. Take Adele, for example. She chose a beautiful curly ponytail that combed hair up to create volume.
If you choose layering, try the haircut on the triangle layers. Choppy layers through the back and lower part of the hair are another great option for a round facial hairstyle.
Soft curls, on the other hand, look good with a round face, but the curls must be below the chin line. Curly hair looks a bit heavy when it stays short as it gives the face more width.
9. Long layers of sea-wave curls on long bangs
Ahhh Pony – Every girl’s best round face girlfriend. Combine them with layers, and suddenly your hair is at the top of the game! However, there are a few things you should keep in mind when choosing a layered hair and a pony look:
- Wear a heavy bang or go for double sided bangs with a middle divider that is at least two to three inches under the earlobe.
- The layers should start where the pony ends.
If your hair is already wavy, it is perfect. If not, you can roll it up for a minute or two and leave it. We do not want curls here, just waves. This is certainly a very trendy hairstyle for round faces!
But what if you are not a big fan of long hair? Do not worry! We have some options that you can try to keep it short and nicey. Continue reading!
10. Short bob hairstyle
The short bob is a classic. But listen, my fellow human beings with round faces! We must avoid the classic version of this look because it emphasizes the roundness of the face.
But no worry! The classic bob is not the only kind of bob that exists. For us ladies with a round face, an angled bob is the way. In this hairstyle, the front layers dramatically stroke the chin, while the back layers are short. The hairstyle looks structured and the hard lines of the Bob adapt to the soft lines of the round face and make it slimmer.
11. Modified Pixie Hairstyle
Pixie cuts are all the rage these days, right?
A modified pixie with long layers running across the forehead, cut-off sides, and a few overlapping layers at the back of the head draws attention to the forehead, making your face look thinner. The several layers pull out the eyes and cheekbones.
If your hair is not heavy, you should keep the top layers longer. When the hair is damp, style the top coat with a volumizing mousse to lift it. This is definitely one of the boldest haircuts for round faces you can try.
12. Short haircut
The idea of a short-haired hairstyle may be scary. But you can be inspired by Renee Zellweger! The longer bumps help to create an illusion of length by reducing the overall apparent width of the face and making it look slimmer.
If you are between long and short in length and you are tired of watching it, then this next hairstyle will work wonders for you.
13. Wavy, medium length hair
Every woman wants to spend less than 5 minutes styling her hair. All you have to do here is straighten your hair after washing. Another alternative is to get some really big hook and loop machines. Let it overnight or blow-dry it to bring these shiny waves into your hair. To draw attention to your beautiful waves, make sure that your hair is not cut into layers or steps. Leave the length about 2 to 3 inches under your chin and let your hair down in the middle to tighten your round face from both sides.
14. Easy Waves
Now this is a show stopper look! This hairstyle brings the volume to the crown of your head. The pony, which strokes obliquely over the forehead, pierces the rounded curve of the hairline very nicely and gives your face thereby length. If you are looking for a shoulder length middle hairstyle then this is definitely the one!
15. Hot Curls
Curls are definitely in there and always will be!
If your hair is already shoulder length then you should avoid making wild, curly spirals. Tame your hair with some serum and then make soft curls that sway with the wind. If your hair is longer than shoulder length, you can opt for spiral curls and then relax with a strong hair spray to prevent them from flowing anywhere.
16. Ballerina rolls
Are you someone who likes to have long hair but would rather avoid too much styling? Then try this new hairstyle! You can go high bun or ballerina rolls. All you have to do is tie your hair into a knot at the top of your head. Secure the knot with hair clips and secure with a firm hold spray.
17. Palm tree ponies
A sweet and simple ponytail keeps your hair clean from the face and gives you a hair opportunity to show off your gorgeous make-up. Contouring makeup eventually exists to reduce the roundness of your face.
As you can see, there is no shortage of hairstyles that flatter round faces. Here are a few things you should definitely avoid when styling your hair:
- A strict no-no for chin-length haircuts with rounded edges, as they make your face look heavier than normal.
- Always choose a hairstyle will make your face appear longer.
- As mentioned earlier, try raising your hairstyle on the tip of your head as it will make your face look longer than it really is.
