What are some hairstyles that suit a round face?

Quick Answer

Some hairstyles that suit round faces include long side-swept bangs, below-the-eyebrow bangs, long hair styled with gentle waves and long hair with choppy layers.

Short hairstyles can also be complimentary to a round face, in particular a cropped bob with jagged edges, a pixie haircut with side bangs, a pixie with tapered sideburns or short playful ringlets.

Other short haircuts that are suitable for round faces include a bowl cut, a wavy pixie hairstyle with volume at the crown, a soft messy crop with braided bangs, a short flip haircut and a '20s inspired style with retro waves. Short bob haircuts that create an A-line outline help to elongate the face. Short hairstyles also have the advantage of being easy to maintain and easy to style. Up-dos such as ones with wavy bangs, braids or a high short curly pony, are also flattering.

Side-swept bangs help create angles on a face and highlight cheekbones. Below-the-eyebrow bangs also have this effect, while also drawing attention to a person's eyes. Wavy hairstyles and layers help to create texture, though the shortest layer should fall no higher than chin length.
