Hairstyles That Complement and Flatter Round Faces

Hairstyles That Complement and Flatter Round Faces

A hairstyle should be chosen based on the shape of one’s face among other things. And some types of faces make it a bit more difficult to find a hairstyle that suits them. It can be the case with round faces. But don’t worry, there are plenty of hairstyles that will look great on you.

First of all, keep in mind that layers usually flatter round faces. It’s because they frame the face well instead of creating sharp contrasts and making the face stand out more than it has to. Mixed layers are ideal. You have some short layers, some medium ones as well as some long ones and they all work together harmoniously.

Short bobs are also a great option. They stop at chin length and highlight the jaw and bone structure. The sharp angles of the bob are softened by the soft curves of the face. A similar effect is also created by angled bangs. In addition to framing your face really well, the bangs will also draw attention to your eyes.

Another strategy is to opt for long waves. They too frame the face beautifully and they’re really easy to get. You can try just letting your hair dry in a few thick braids and you’ll get natural long waves. They’ll look wonderful even if you don’t have long hair.

Other hairstyles may appear to be bad choices when they’re not. For example, a pixie cut can be surprisingly flattering for round faces. That’s because it can make a short neck look longer and they’ll contrast with the soft curves of your face. They trick is opting for a well-defined cut.
