How To Tell If You Have a Round Face:

  • The width of the cheekbones is roughly the same as the length of the face.
  • The sides of the face curve slightly outward, and the cheekbones are the widest area of the face.
  • There are soft or non-existent angles on the face, and the chin is rounded.

The Best Hairstyles For Round Faces

With a round face, the goal is to elongate the face by adding height and covering the cheekbones.

High buns and ponytails are great for adding height, but remember to leave some wispy strands hanging down to soften the roundness and elongate the face.

Loose beachy waves, long layers, wispy shags, side-swept bangs, faux hawks, and textured bobs are great options for people with round faces. Another trick is to use asymmetrical styles to add angles to the face.

What hairstyles are best for round faces?

You want to look for hairstyles that elongate your face and softly cover the cheekbone area. Loose beachy waves, long layers, wispy shags, side-swept bangs, faux hawks, and textured bobs are great options for people with round faces.

Do round faces look good with short hair?

Some short hairstyles will accentuate the roundness, but other hairstyles like fauxhawks add height to elongate the face. Asymmetric bangs, textured bobs, and pixies can be styled to flatter a round face.

Straight, blunt bangs aren’t the best option for round faces. But wispy bangs, soft curtain fringe, or side-swept bangs are very flattering on round faces.
