Your Hair: Its Shape Dictates Your Hairstyle
No matter your age, your hairstyle of choice should flatter the shape of your face. Your face can be round, oval, square, heart or diamond shaped. Here we focus on hairstyles for women with a round face.
A round face has curved lines with the width and length in the same proportions, and no angles. To narrow the fullness of a round face look for styles that add height on top and give the face shape more structure.

If you have a rounder face and are looking for a flattering style, you may want to try a bob that falls just below the chin or a little longer. Long layers draw attention to the length of your face and away from the roundness. Side partings and center parts can both be flattering; the parting should be positioned just off the face.
Long, Tousled Layers with Side Fringe
Longer layers on the sides create movement and add volume, which is the perfect remedy for a round face. With long layers, you can take some hair up and away, and the remainder can be left softly tousled.
Long Side-Swept Layers
A longer style with fullness on either side of the face will both lengthen and slim your face. If you have fine hair, keeping the locks longer creates the illusion of thicker hair and gives the illusion of a slimmer face.
Long, Blunt Cut
If your round face has sharp features, go for a sleek, longer hairstyle. A good idea is the classic look of a blunt cut that falls just below the shoulders, with very few layers.
Side Parting with Highlighted Bangs
A front fringe and graduated layers cut even shorter in the face-framing area are a great combination for a round face. A big bonus of this style is that the front fringe and the side parting reduce the width of the face.
