The best haircut for a round face is one that deflects facial roundness, according to Julyne Derrick for About.com Beauty. Several hairstyles are considered flattering for a round face, including long hair and various wavy styles.
Long hair works well on round faces due to its elongating effect. About.com Beauty recommends implementing layers into a long cut to help provide the appearance of additional length. To create angles in the face, bangs should be side-swept and long, hitting the cheekbones when possible. Natural or gently created waves also help make round faces appear longer. Long, straight hair is helpful in disguising a round face, too. This style is achievable with a flat iron.
