Although there are numerous hairstyles that heavy women can wear, one of the most flattering cuts is a medium-length bob. A pixie cut is also an attractive style for a heavier woman.
The medium-length bob is flattering to heavy women because it is a very balanced style that frames the entire face. The pixie cut adds volume to the top of the head and elongates the face, making it appear thinner. Some hairstyles that heavy women should avoid are very short bobs that end in the middle of the face and hairstyles that have a widening effect or make the face appear fuller.
