What is Round Face Shape?

Round face shapes are exactly as they sound- the widest point is across the cheekbones, narrowing some at the forehead and jaw line. This face shape is not angular at all, and is wider than the typical oval or oblong face.
When working with a round face shape, you may want to avoid any hairstyle that’s ear-length. (This length gives a wider appearance.) Also, avoid blunt-cut straight bangs and styles that add volume or curl to the sides without any up on top. The most balanced and flattering styles on a round face are those that add fullness at the crown or top of the head, as well as longer styles with little width. Wispy bangs or side-swept bangs are best, and very short styles can work as well. (Just not ear-length.)

Hairstyles with height and fullness at the crown will give the illusion of a narrower face shape, particularly those short in length.
Longer hairstyles or ones that are kept close to the cheeks with no width will look better.
Middle parts  are great for creating the illusion of narrow length.
No bangs are the ideal as the focus point becomes the bridge of the nose, creating a more oval shape.
If finges are used they should be swept across, or in the case of solid bangs, only where there is substantial height on the top.
Short hairstyles  are great and do not suffocate small round faces.


 Adding volume to the sides of the hair is a no-no for women with round faces.
Hairstyles that add volume through the sides such as chin length bob cuts, straight or kicking out in design.
Side parts and heavy straight across fing create a wider shorter shape and therefore should be avoided at all costs on hairstyles without any height.
