Hairstyles are a way a person’s hair is arranged or cut. A good hairstyle can definitely boost your hair game. There are different types of face structures each having its pros and cons.
People with round face are lucky as a round face is even and is appealing to the eyes. But not all is good with having a round face, many a times a round face might look chubby and fat and small when compared to the rest of the body. But not to worry. We come to your rescue. We have listed below a couple of hairstyles that not only are suitable for round face but they also enhance the look of the person.
CHOPPY LAYERED CUT
A choppy layered cut resembles and looks a bit like the infamous bob cut. But unlike the bob cut, the choppy cut isn’t sleek. It’s cut in layers starting from the cheekbones and makes the face look longer. So if you want to give an illusion of a long face to your actually short face you must opt for this hairstyle. Kelly Clarkson dons the classic choppy layered bob and literally slays it. This cut not only gives the illusion of a longer face but also highlights the cheekbones of the person. The cut usually goes till the shoulders in layers.
THE PIXIE CUT
Another flattering hairstyle for people with round face is the pixie cut. The pixie cut is usually having short hair around the back and sides of the head but is usually longer on the top. A pixie cut adds a chic vibe and raises your style quotient to a completely different level. The trick to carrying this hairstyle with ease and confidence is to know your style game. You shouldn’t style your hair in a manner which makes them fall flat against your head. The talented actress Ginnifer Goodwin shows how to rock a pixie cut and she without any doubt turns our heads! Just like the other hairstyles, this cut too makes your round face look a bit more dimensional and angular.
SIDE SWEPT FRINGE RAZOR CUT
Another suitable hairstyle is the side swept fringe razor cut. If you want to make your face look pointed and not bulbous you should definitely opt for this cut. The front portion of the hair is cut in bangs also known as fringes and is done so with a razor so as to avoid any lose ends. The loose ends add softness to your face and end up making it look more round. Famous actress Hayden Panettiere’s hairstyle is ideal as it makes her face look sharp and proportionate.
SIDE PARTED CURLY BOB
This is yet another hairstyle which compliments people with round face. In this look you curl and mess up your hair in order to make it appear voluminous and big. Although it’s a fashion rule too avoid having too much volume on the hair at the side of a round face but this cut is an exception. The main key in this cut is the parting of the hair. Go for side parting as it helps and makes the face look more angular whereas the centre parting catches the attention towards the face structure and makes it look chubbier. To rock this look, curl your hair with a curling iron and mess them up a bit followed with a side parting and viola! You’re good to go! Star Wars actress Lily Cole shows us how to slay the side parted curly bob.
TRADITIONAL BOB CUT
A classic Bob cut is usually cut till or shorter than the chin in order to highlight the features of the face. If you want to experiment and make you round face look angular, we suggest you to go for this cut. Katie Holmes shows us how to carry this cut with confidence and makes it look effortless.
As the name suggests, this cut isn’t done in symmetry and usually either the left or the right side of the hair is longer than the other side. Such a cut adds an edgy vibe to the face and gives a chic look. Apart from recreating the face structure, it also makes the face look slender. The cut is similar to the classic bob cut and the asymmetry is the only distinguishing factor about it. American actress Brittany Snow dons an asymmetrical bob.
SIDE SWEPT BANGS
As the name suggests, the front hair is cut just below the cheekbone and is done with a side partition. This looks takes the attention off from the round face and adds drama to the whole look. This is one of the most common looks and can be helpful to make your face look proportionate and to define its features.
SHORT CHOPPY HAIRCUT
Doing justice to the name, this haircut has its ends chopped off in a messy kind of fashion and gives a sloppy feel. This is the perfect hairstyle to distract attention off the face and reduce the softness that a round face has. Teen Icon Taylor Swift has been seen carrying this haircut many times and is always her go to haircut.
ASYMMETRICAL PIXIE HAIRCUT
Similar to the asymmetrical bob cut, there’s nothing different in this cut from that of a classic pixie cut apart from its asymmetric side. This cut is trending and will definitely light up your glam game. Our favourite Hollywood diva, ScarJo, looks fiery in this haircut.
GRADUATED BOB HAIRCUT
As the name goes, this haircut is similar to the classic bob cut but all that is different is that in this cut the hair at the back is stacked with layers. The stacking of layers can differ from person to person based on their preference.
DO’S AND DON’TS
AVOID CENTRE PARTING: When you have a round face you must avoid centre parting at all costs as it catches attention of people and makes the face appear more round and bulbous and you definitely don’t want that.
AVOID ADDING VOLUME: Adding too much volume in your hair when you have a round face has never worked for people. You can try other styles like straightening them but adding volume only adds to the bulbous effect to the face.
AVOID STRAIGHT FRINGE: The sole reason we suggested side bangs was that they take off the attention from the round face. But when we have straight fringes our direct attention goes towards the face and our mission of making the face look edgy and angular goes to waste.
Hairstyle is an important part of an individual’s personality and can either make you or break you. It can make you go from 0 to 100. With the proper makeup and hairstyle you can help bring out the best features of your face to your advantage. Keep in mind the things to avoid and you’ll be ready to rock!
