We all come to this world, looking different. We have different face shapes, types of figures, heights and weights. Every one of us, ladies, is blessed with unique beauty. If you do not fit into the questionable standards, imposed by mass media, that doesn’t mean that you are less special and beautiful than the women you see in the magazines or on TV screen.
The most important thing is to feel and know that you are a beautiful woman. The right hairstyle will strengthen this feeling and your self-confidence. We want to show you how different you can look and feel yourself with a flattering hairstyle. Even if you have always loved your pretty feminine curves, you may re-discover your beauty once again and look at it from a new angle.
The right choice of a hairstyle can not only mask some facial imperfections in regards to its shape, it does change an impression of your image in whole. Any time you may distract attention from something in your looks, you are not very proud about, while switching it to your stronger points. Many women wish they had slimmer faces. You can easily achieve that effect with one of the hairstyles we offer below.
What Kind of Hairstyles to Opt for If You Have Round Face?
Asymmetric haircuts are great for women with round faces, especially if you opt for a layered and slightly mussy style. Waves and flat ironed hairstyles with rounded ends are both good. Asymmetric bangs and harmonious hair hue draw attention to your hairstyle and distract it from your figure. The rule is simple: if you want to conceal something, accentuate something else.
How to Choose the Right Hairstyle for a Round Face?
- Avoid heavy straight bangs, because they create a horizontal line that widens your face visually.
- If you are a plus-size woman, it’s better to shy away from compact and sleek hairstyles, they can totally spoil your look.
- Whatever hairstyle you choose, try to leave elongated locks by the sides of your face. They are going to make your face slimmer.
- Consider elongated side bangs. Any diagonal line that crosses your face makes it longer visually.
- Additional volume on top also elongates and slims your face.
- Don’t be afraid to change!
Top 55 Hairstyles and Haircuts for Round Faces
So, take a minute and look through our brilliant collection of slimming hairstyles for women with curvy bodies and round faces.
#1: Curled Bob
This cute style is a no brainer for women who want to revamp their style. Blonde highlights, bouncy curls and a deep side bang help to slim wide cheeks and draw attention to the cute chin area; an ash shade of blonde pairs well with warm brown skin that has yellow undertones.
#2: Layers and Loose Waves
Blunt bangs may not be the best style for full faces because they highlight the widest part across the cheeks, but that doesn’t mean you have to avoid them altogether. Messy waves and bright highlights draw attention away from the width.
#3: Smoky Waves
A long wavy bob is the style to have, because it is universally appealing for all face shapes. A deep side part will hide chubby cheeks, while a blunt cut will keep it modern and fresh. Purple and grey are very trendy this season.
#4: Tousled Texture for Baby Face
Chin-length short hairstyles are hard for round faces because they tend to emphasize the cheeks. But, you can combat this with choppy layers that create sharp lines and angles around your face.
#5: Formal Hairdo for Curvy Faces
Updos can be daunting for women with round faces because they make the visage the focal point. But, they can work as hairstyles for chubby faces with the right elements: face-framing tendrils, loose curls and bold highlights.
#6: Blue Bangs for Full Faces
If you thought pixie cuts were not for overweight women, think again. A long textured side bang will camouflage wide cheeks, while still working with the overall short cut. Vibrant colors will make it fun and flirty.
#7: Wavy Pastel Pink Lob with Bangs
A pretty pastel pink lob suits textured hair well. Especially when paired with bangs, it’s an artsy, alternative hairstyle, that’s at the same time feminine. Beach waves, tousled, or woke-up-like-this styles are the way to go with this cut and color.
#8: Curly Updo for Medium Hair
This timeless and classic updo will suit all face shapes and hair textures. A low messy bun can work as a wedding hairstyle for the bride or her bridesmaids. Wispy curled tendrils lengthen the face, and ombre highlights make the updo look super dimensional!
#9: Dramatic Black and Blonde Balayage Bob
Playing with two tones is a wise strategy of hairstyles for chubby faces. Sometimes solid colors can make round faces appear even rounder; prevent this by implementing a contrasting shade in balayage highlights.
#10: Face-Framing Layers and Subtle Caramel Balayage
Long layers are common in all sorts of haircuts for all types of face shapes. Medium face-framing layers, however, are allies for plus size women! Not only do they draw the eye downwards, elongating the face, but they also break up a uniform cut that can be unflattering for a full face.
#11: Cropped Bob with Choppy Ends
Since fuller faces have curved lines, hairstyles with soft waves flatter them. Upgrade your bob with choppy ends and style some loose waves. This ‘do is modern and trendy, particularly striking on thick hair!
#12: Long Caramel Blonde Hairstyle with Layers
Haircuts for round faces need layers to bring in some sharpness and edge into the look. If you’re keeping the cut longer, implement cascading layers throughout the face-framing pieces to prevent the face from appearing excessively round. A cut similar to this is also good for thin hair, providing ample body and movement.
#13: Chocolate Hair with Partial Blonde Balayage
Chocolate hair is a staple choice for ladies of all skin tones and hair textures. Subtle balayage or ombré placed on the lower half of your hair will mitigate the roundness, and a deep side part works wonders on complementing a big face.
#14: Long Choppy Pixie
Most of today’s trendy haircuts are choppy. This method is ideal for fuller faces as it balances out the round qualities. A pixie cut can be chic and modern with sparse bangs in the front and messy styling.
#15: Ash Brown Waves with Face-Framing Highlights
Face-framing highlights in haircuts for women with round faces can also work in our favor. Dark colors make clearer outlines along the cheeks, while lightening those strands, you avoid the “boxed in” effect, trapping the face. Open it up instead and keep darker tones at roots.
#16: Dark Honey Blonde Pixie Bob
A layered, side-parted pixie bob is another appealing option for round faces. The optical illusion ready to come to your rescue in this case is a deep side part. Uniformity should be avoided in round face cuts, so sweeping over much of your mane to one side beneficially frames and slims your face.
#17: Mid-Length Wavy Hazel Blonde Hairstyle
If you aren’t a fan of shorter styles, choose textured medium haircuts. Loose waves that delicately frame, partially covering your cheeks, visually elongate your face, correcting its shape.
#18: Asymmetrical Shag with Bangs
Asymmetry is another flattering solution in short haircuts for round faces. This makes asymmetrical cuts a safe haven to explore! Whether you have jagged bangs or an uneven length, have fun with your creative cut and enhance it with messy styling.
#19: Cherry Balayage Bob
Don’t forget to color play! Go for a cute hue that will complement your skin tone and eye color by examining opposites on a color wheel; for instance green or blue eyes pop brilliantly with shades of red.
#20: Choppy Copper and Brown Bob with Bangs
The best you can do to flatter a round face is to throw in some edgy ends and jagged bangs to make the common bob sharper. These are chic and offer a nice structure. The ‘boxed in’ look is avoided and the final hairstyle looks current and oh-so-pretty!
#21: Balayage Waves
A round face with a low forehead looks perfect with a medium haircut and no bangs. Not having bangs adds visual length to the face. When the front pieces are styled forward and to the sides, it creates a mysterious look. Complete the style with face-framing highlights.
#22: Choppy Bob with Bangs for Fine Hair
Keeping short hairstyles for round faces simple is the best bet for many textures. Fine hair in particular is lovely in a basic bob with slightly textured ends and bangs.
#23: Best A-Line for Full Faces
This haircut is a fantastic choice for overweight women. The shape is a mixture between smooth and structured, and it’s ultimately a very flattering option of plus size hairstyles. Especially when done up in a head-turning platinum hue, this style is a sure winner.
#24: Fabulous Silver Blonde Pixie Bob
Women who have always wanted to make the big pixie chop but felt insecure about their round face shape should consider a pixie with a deep side part and long bangs. Such a style easily neutralizes fullness and visually elongates the face. For the sassiest results, top off the haircut with a fabulous color, like silver blonde.
#25: Adorable Bob with Choppy Layers
Short hairstyles for round faces should always compliment your natural beauty but also give you a bit of sharpness and imperfection. You can use a round brush when blow drying to flip hair in alternate directions.
#26: Short Pixie with Asymmetrical Bangs
The tinkerbell-esque pixie with asymmetrical bangs is truly striking, especially on ladies who have big facial features.
#27: Messy Lavender Balayage Bob
If your forehead is not big, messy ‘dos that have a lot of height work as very appealing hairstyles for round faces. Add spunk to the style by choosing an unnatural cool toned hue, like lavender or pastel pink.
#28: Bright Purple Bob
A rock’n’roll hair color for ladies of all ages is bright purple. Combined with an edgy wardrobe, it is sure to give you a signature look. Opt for a choppy and angled cut to amp up the edgy factor of your hairstyle even more.
#29: Light Brown Balayage Hair
Though the most common way to curl hair with a clamp or wand is away from the face, an effective technique for full faces is to mix up the in and out curls; one strand outwards and next inwards. Not only does alternating curl directions result in a more natural look, but it also prevents opening up wide cheeks too much.
#30: Layered Silver Blonde Bob
Cute haircuts for chubby faces put emphasis on texture and parting shifted off to either side. Subtle waves near the bottom half of the hair add movement which is also a big plus for a current slimming hairstyle.
#31: Sleek Short Cut
Short hair for round faces looks beautiful in sleek asymmetrical hairstyles. Use a large barrel round brush while blow drying. Curling hair under gives you a sleek, modern look.
#32: Pretty Platinum
You know the saying blondes have more fun, so why not embrace a style that brings the excitement? Tousled texture, a bright color and choppy layers are always in style. Plus, it looks equally good with a side or middle part.
#33: Beautiful Balayage Curls
A side part is a really great addition to plus size hairstyles. With a side part, you make a round face slimmer. To recreate this pretty look, try curling hair in alternate directions, and always pay special attention to how you curl your face-framing locks.
#34: Piecey Crop with Caramel Highlights
Short haircuts for women with round faces are adorable with piecey layers and choppy side bangs. This unique, artistic style features lightened and flipped out ends to add some sharpness and angle to the face that can appear overly sweet. Bangs that hit at the cheekbones help to accentuate your smile.
#35: Grey Ombre for Chubby Faces
Ombre looks are some of the best hairstyles for plus size women because the fading color from dark to light draws the eye down. By doing this you can visually create length and slim down your face. For extra drama, try styling with glamorous shades and a bold lip.
#36: Layered Lavender Curls
This pretty hairstyle is a great option for full faces. Side part your hair and tuck the smaller part behind the ear. And we cannot forget about the color: this combo of lavender, steel grey, and ash brown is gorgeous!
#37: Long Bob
Color is a great way to add visual length to round faces, and one of the most popular dye techniques is balayage. The color is hand-painted so that it looks natural and effortless. It also is easier to maintain and requires less touch-ups.
#38: Ravishing Red for Round Faces
Color is a great way to upgrade short haircuts for round faces, whether you go for a bold solid hue or multi-tonal solution. Take it one step further with bright lipstick and perfect eyebrows.
#39: Marvelous Mauve
Good hairstyles are those that don’t try too hard. All women look their best when they are confident and having fun. Experiment with fun dyes and colorful glasses to boost your everyday look.
#40: Shoulder Length Cut
This seventies-inspired shag is one of the best medium hairstyles for round faces. The side bangs bring out the cheekbones while the shoulder length layers give structure to the cut. To lend softness and femininity to your look, use a medium barrel curling iron to style loose waves and then finger comb through.
#41: Medium Wavy Hairstyle for Chubby Faces
America Ferrera has never been a skinny girl. Here is one of her successful tender looks. A shoulder-length haircut with evenly distributed volume lets your locks flow with natural grace. Long and soft side bangs are a great compliment for the cut. Use a hair dryer and a medium size round brush to style your locks or shape loose curls with a large-barrel curling iron. Once you finish with styling, tousle your locks slightly and fix the result with hair spray.
#42: Bob with Elongated Front Locks
A-line edgy bob is an awesome haircut for a round face. It’s going to slim your face thanks to its mobility, difference of lengths between the layers and angled front locks. Diagonal lines in haircuts always slim your face and elongate your neckline. The styling of the cut won’t take much of your time and turn out to be pretty effortless.
#43: Messy Bob with Long Side-Swept Bangs
America Ferrera’s thick hair is layered towards the ends to convey a cute rounded shape to her shoulder-skimming bob. She opts to style it messy with long swoopy bangs.
#44: Playful Shag Haircut
The sticking out edgy locks, trimmed skillfully, create the ideal roundness with sufficient volume. And your not fat, but clearly round face will appear smaller in the background of a voluminous hairstyle. The side bangs add to the visual correction of your face shape. It’s important to work through the ends of your locks to alleviate them but not to make them extremely thin. Use light volumizing spray, a blow dryer and medium size thermal brush for styling. Light hold hair spray is applied at the final stage.
#45: Purple Haze Bob with Bangs
For Grammys the same bob was flat-ironed to accentuate its fringy edges and complemented with short blunt cut bangs. Kelly’s face is accurately framed to draw attention to her pigment-rich accurate makeup.
#46: Softness & Charm
This short asymmetric bob is perfect for round faces. Side tresses and a long side swept fringe create vertical lines, slimming your face and accentuating your soft facial features.
#47: “Greige” Waves
No one will be looking at your chubby cheeks when you have a mysterious color like this. Is it violet? Is it grey? When you step into the room, this smoky purple color will be the talk of the town.
#48: Weightless Hairstyle for Round Faces
Beautiful loose hair of a natural hue, softly framing your face, leaves an impression of a light airy image. A long bob blends with this image perfectly. Do you agree?
#49: Pastel Ombre
If you are going to get a short cut with a round face, it’s best to have the length stop past the chin to elongate and distract from the widest part of your face. Purple highlights around the ends of the hair will add some sharpness of the jawline and chin.
#50: Elegant Updo for Round Faces
Kate Winslet has always had a curvaceous figure, so we can peek at her hairstyles for inspiration as well. For a special occasion, she chooses the best updo variety that flatters her face and image in whole. For a soft classic updo like Kate’s, gather your locks at the nape into a pony. Curl the locks using a medium-barrel curling iron. Arrange the curls into a compact downdo arbitrarily, fixing them with bobby pins. Style the bangs to one side so that they have a lift above the forehead in a sort of a wave crest. This trick is going to elongate your face. Fix the hairstyle with strong hold hair spray.
#51: Medium-Length Voluminous Hairstyle
Gorgeous Oprah Winfrey knows how to choose outfits and hairstyles that make her look breathtaking. With a round face like Oprah’s, your hairstyle should necessarily be voluminous. To achieve this goal you need the right layered haircut. Before you begin to style your locks, apply light volumizing spray to the roots and blow dry your hair using a medium size round thermal brush. Define the cute flicks at the ends of your locks while blow drying. A side parting and side bangs always flatter faces of the round shape. Even if you think your face is fat, don`t be upset, you can visually correct this. Moreover, we are usually too self-critical and everything is really not so bad. One more hairstyling hack for your round face: use light hold hair sprays to fix your voluminous hairstyles. Heavier products are going to overload your locks.
#52: Mighty Beach Waves
Any chubby face benefits immensely from asymmetric hairstyles with long side bangs like Melissa McCarthy’s. These diagonal and vertical lines can do miracles, while the texture itself is fabulous and so enjoyable!
#53: Short and Shaggy
Here’s a no-fail hipster look. This cute style is totally effortless. You can either blow dry your hair or let it airdry before adding a few waves with a clipless curling iron. Most importantly, be sure you’re starting out with the right cut. This option is mostly one-length with only a little layering.
#54: Textured Silvery Curls with a Purple Tint
We find these shoulder-grazing curls with long side-swept bangs even more flattering for Kelly’s face. Thanks to asymmetry, the messy hairstyle covers one side of her round face, narrowing it visually.
#55: Short Cool Toned Crop
A bob is one of the all-time best haircuts for chubby faces. To push the boundaries with your bob, opt for uniquely textured layers like these. The asymmetry in the long bangs is really cute, while the volume in the back lends structure.
