The most wide-spread medium-length haircuts for round faces are bobs with longer front tresses and layered cuts. These provide the richest styling options, beneficial for round faces and consonant to the current hair trends. The gallery below will provide you with multiple choices of awesome medium length hairstyles for round faces.
Actually, the best length for round faces is up to the shoulders or a little bit longer. This length elongates a round face. Texturized edges are a plus. The forehead may be either covered with asymmetric bangs or open. Individual features should be, certainly, taken into account.
Flat-ironed bobs look fantastic on women and girls with round faces. Side parting and long side swept bangs cover one side of the face, and it seems considerably thinner. Straightened shag medium hairstyles for round faces with loads of layers draw dozens of vertical lines around your face, adding it the desirable proportional length.
Be careful with curls on medium lengths. Sometimes they tend to be overly voluminous which broadens your round face unfavorably. If you love curls, make sure they are not too fluffy, while your hair is teased at the roots. Volume on the crown will correct the proportions.
If you want to try messy hairstyles, ask your stylist not to cut layers too short to avoid added volume on the sides. Style your hair with gel or strengthen it, slightly raising at the roots. Make sure that locks don’t stick out at the sides. Long earrings are an extra trick.
