Round faces are cute, feminine and sweet. They are often blessed with very attractive dimples on the cheeks and have a rounded line of hair growth. If your face shape is round, the hairstyles which keep all the hair off your face don’t make you any prettier and may underline the fullness of your face. Check out these haircuts with bangs that create an alluring style and visually elongate your face instead.
Flattering Types of Bangs for Round Faces
When choosing the perfect kind of bangs for your round face, keep in mind that your goal is to make it visually longer. Long vertical and diagonal lines cope with this task fairly well, because they have an elongating power. That’s why you can see from the examples in the gallery that long side-swept bangs and flowy curtain bangs benefit round faces like no others.
Straight bangs are also quite flattering for round faces. However, even if your hair is thick, avoid extremely thick bangs, especially in case you opt to wear them straight.
When styling your bangs, don’t forget to make some volume on the crown to balance your face shape. For fine hair, opt for thin bangs and layered front tresses. Check out the ideas below for ultimate inspiration.
