Many women have round faces including plenty of celebrities! The round face shape is defined when full cheeks and a round chin join together to form a circle.

General Guidelines:
For women with round faces, it is best to get a haircut that is asymmetrical. According to Chris McMillan, LA salon owner, “a round face looks really good with an uneven cut meaning a mix of lengths.” (VIA allure.com)

Long hair looks stunning on round faces because it lengthens the face. Cuts that fall a few inches below the chin and longer are best.
Long choppy layers look great. The shortest layer should ideally fall at your chin and should never be above your earlobe.
Side-swept bangs create angles for round faces. Go for long bangs that hit your cheekbone.
Gentle waves deflect the roundness of the face. If you have naturally wavy hair, just let it be!

3 Best Hairstyles for Round Faces:

Sleek Straight Long Hair:

The long sleek look has a great framing effect on round faces. Wearing your hair in this style is an ideal choice because it tricks the eye by creating the illusion of length and definition. This is fabulous because a round face typically lacks any length or definition.



Angled Short Bob:

While the classic bob just isn’t for round faced people, it isn’t the only kind of bob! The angled short bob is a great choice for round faced beauties. A structured look is created by this style and the hard lines on the bob balances the soft lines of the round face.




Close Cropped:

This style combines the stylish look of trimmed hair with a very feminine charm! Because it gives you a good deal of room to play around with your looks, it is very easy to have. Longer bangs in this style help create an illusion of length by reducing the overall width of the face making it look slimmer.




Round-faced women have plenty of options when it comes to choosing a hairstyle that enhances their looks.
