Did you know that there are different ways to style your hair based on what face shape you have? The most basic kinds of face shapes are round, oval, square, or heart-shaped. Just like the clothes you wear or makeup that you apply to accentuate your features, there are certain things you can do to flatter your face shape too. We’re zero-ing in on some simple and modish ways for girls with round-faces to flatter their curls. A round face is essentially the same width across as it is high, the widest point sets at the cheekbones and narrows at the forehead and chin. Your goals are to add length and lift and make those cheekbones pop to add angles and enhance your features. There are a lot of options in hairstyles for round faces and we´re bringing you the best ones, so let’s get started.
1. Centre Part:
The centre part is a trick-of- the-trade to make all face shapes appear longer and slimmer, which is exactly what round-faced gals like Cameron Diaz want to do, especially when you’re in the mood for an effortless ‘do. When styling a middle part, create lift at your roots and be sure to balance the volume of your hair at each side and at your forehead for symmetry. If you go too puffy on the sides you’ll only make your face seem wider, the idea here is to balance all sides of your face for a polished, proportioned look.
2. Side Bangs:
Fringe is in, but bangs and round-faces are a big no-no unless — you rock ‘em to the side. This style lets you in on the fringe trend, while avoiding to make your face appear rounder and wider. Pulling your bangs to the side with long layers that cascade down on an angle, shows off a lot of the forehead and helps to create a more oval-looking shape. You see, there truly is a bang style to suit everyone.
3. Big Curly Bun:
Round faced gals are going to want to write the low pony off, but don’t write off pulling your back because the high top knot is even more fashionable and works great for round faces. Remember, it’s all about creating length and lift to accentuate your features and shape those cheekbones and the high bun does just that.
If you’ve been wanting to go super short, you can use your beautiful round face as the perfect excuse, because round is the absolute best shape for making the chop. The pixie cut is our top pick to give your curls texture and make those cheekbones pop.
5. Half Updo:
When pinning back your hair the key is in keeping it loose to pump up the volume, creating the illusion of height. Avoid a slicked back style as it will make your face appear bigger.We like this side-swept updo with loose curls and some serious height to elongate your face.
Remember, this isn’t all or nothing, don’t shy away from something simply because it’s not listed here. Go with what makes you feel beautiful and confident. Share some of your hairstyle successes for round-face shapes with us!
