Hairstyles For Round Faces

Hairstyles For Round Faces

If you have a round shaped face you are very lucky. People with round shaped faces often look younger and more youthful. This is because round faces are thought of as ‘baby faces’, hence the younger look.  A round face will be the same width and length. Usually there will be no prominent features or angles.

In this blog post we look at celebrities with round faces. We also recommend some great hairstyles for round faces, as well as some hairstyles for round faces that should be avoided.

Celebs with Round Faces

If you are looking for some hair-spiration from celebs with round faces then look no further than Selena Gomez, Kirsten Dunst and Ginnifer Goodwin. These are 3 fabulous ladies that have embraced their round faces and look gorgeous for doing so.

Best Hairstyles for Round Faces

The main goal for many people with round faces is to elongate the face so it looks more oval in shape. A great way of doing this is leaving a little piece of hair un-tucked on one side of your face. This is a really easy and quick trick that works well. It visually shortens the width of your face and thus tricks the eye into thinking your face is narrower.

Short hairstyles for round faces can be ideal. Short hair can flatter the face, especially is parted and styled the right way. A deep side part can create more angles around your face. Alternatively pull your hair up into a high ponytail and this will elongate your face.

If you’re feeling brave you may want to consider a short pixie cut with volume at the top. This type is hairstyle will add texture and angles to your face, but without looking harsh.

Hairstyles for Round Faces to Avoid

While it may be tempting to hide your round face behind lots of hair, we would recommend against it. This actually accentuates your wide face. Try to opt for long and face framing bangs with a smooth and sleek texture as this works really well. Try to avoid soft and wispy bang type of hairstyles for round faces as this can further accentuate the softness of your features. We would recommend a classy side swept bangs look, or bolder bangs for example.
