The truth is, there’s no one universally perfect haircut or hairstyle for round faces for everyone. All in all, you should keep in mind your style preferences, the texture and length of your hair, and your lifestyle. Based on these essentials you can determine the type of a cut or style that flatters and suits you best. We’ve highlighted the most win-win types of hairstyles that can really work on your round face, and your task is to pick one that fits your needs!

  • Instead of straight or heavy bangs, it’s better to go for layered ideas.
  • Hairstyles that feature short tresses on the front.
  • Long hairstyles that involve graduated or cascading layers with soft side-swept bangs.
  • Hairstyles that visually add fullness to the body, thus giving height and adding length.
  • For curly hair, consider keeping the sides of your hair short, putting the accent to the crown.

Don’t underestimate the power parting, girl! The way you part your hair can change the appearance of your face shape, making it wider or slimmer. To make it appear a bit longer and hide up your chubby cheeks, you can go for a classic short-to-medium bob and create a middle part that will give a perfect balance.
