Top 60 Flattering Hairstyles for Round Faces


We all come to this world, looking different. We have different face shapes, types of figures, heights and weights. Every one of us, ladies, is blessed with unique beauty. If you do not fit into the questionable standards, imposed by mass media, that doesn’t mean that you are less special and beautiful than the women you see in the magazines or on TV screen.


The most important thing is to feel and know that you are a beautiful woman. The right hairstyle will strengthen this feeling and your self-confidence. We want to show you how different you can look and feel yourself with a flattering hairstyle. Even if you have always loved your pretty feminine curves, you may re-discover your beauty once again and look at it from a new angle.


The right choice of a hairstyle can not only mask some facial imperfections in regards to its shape, it does change an impression of your image in whole. Any time you may distract attention from something in your looks, you are not very proud about, while switching it to your stronger points. Many women wish they had slimmer faces. You can easily achieve that effect with one of the hairstyles we offer below.


What Kind of Hairstyles to Opt for If You Have Round Face?

Asymmetric haircuts are great for women with round faces, especially if you opt for a layered and slightly mussy style. Waves and flat ironed hairstyles with rounded ends are both good. Asymmetric bangs and harmonious hair hue draw attention to your hairstyle and distract it from your figure. The rule is simple: if you want to conceal something, accentuate something else.


How to Choose the Right Hairstyle for a Round Face?

1. Avoid heavy straight bangs, because they create a horizontal line that widens your face visually.

2. If you are a plus-size woman, it’s better to shy away from compact and sleek hairstyles, they can totally spoil your look.

3. Whatever hairstyle you choose, try to leave elongated locks by the sides of your face. They are going to make your face slimmer.

4. Consider elongated side bangs. Any diagonal line that crosses your face makes it longer visually.

5. Additional volume on top also elongates and slims your face.

6. Don’t be afraid to change!


Top 60 Hairstyles and Haircuts for Round Faces

So, take a minute and look through our brilliant collection of slimming hairstyles for women with curvy bodies and round faces.


A layered, side-parted pixie bob is another appealing option for round faces. The optical illusion ready to come to your rescue in this case is a deep side part. Uniformity should be avoided in round face cuts, so sweeping over much of your mane to one side beneficially frames and slims your face.

Can you choose a voluminous medium hairstyle for a round chubby face? If it’s a shattered shaggy bob like this one, you certainly can! The side-swept peek-a-boo waves keep the cut looking youthful and carefree, despite the courageous choice of color.

A pixie with diagonal bangs works great for a chubby face. An almost invisible part-line, a lightly tousled top section, and angled sideburns that come to a point help to narrow a wider face. The dark brown shade is stylish and conservative.

Chin-length short hairstyles are hard for round faces because they tend to emphasize the cheeks. But, you can combat this with choppy layers that create sharp lines and angles around your face.

Grow out a traditional lob into a medium-length shag with lots of choppy layers and long bangs. By letting your hair drop below your shoulders, you help elongate your round-shaped face, making it look slimmer and more balanced. It’s a classic style for thin hair that can be parted in the middle or slightly off-center, with or without bangs.

Transform a drab, boring hairstyle into a vibrant, asymmetrical masterpiece with just a few strategic snips! A snazzy pixie-bob is a flattering option for a full face that needs a bit of narrowing. The long side bangs balance out the upper part of the face, creating a thinner appearance, and the stacked closely cropped back section is sultry and sophisticated.

Loosely parted on the side, the hairstyle has an unquestionably slimming effect. Tucking a few pieces behind the ears to expose the jawline only on one side also makes the face look narrower.

This timeless and classic updo will suit all face shapes and hair textures. A low messy bun can work as a wedding hairstyle for the bride or her bridesmaids. Wispy curled tendrils lengthen the face, and ombre highlights make the updo look super dimensional!

Playing with two tones is a wise strategy of hairstyles for chubby faces. Sometimes solid colors can make round faces appear even rounder; prevent this by implementing a contrasting shade in balayage highlights.

Who says a pixie cut can´t be a versatile face-slimming hairstyle? Comb it forward, to the side, or style a pompadour – the options are numerous. If you have a particularly round face, go with a lot of height on top and extra-long sideburns to lengthen your face.

Blowdry your bob until it`s super straight and style it with a deep side part so the extra-long bangs sweep across your face and make it look narrower and more oval. The lavender-grey shade set off by darker roots is sensual and gives this slimming haircut a unique, textured appearance that can easily become your signature style.
