20 Top Short Hairstyles for Women with Round Faces over 50

Short hairstyles for women with round faces over 50 are not just boring one-length pixies and classic bobs. You can’t even imagine how differently a really good master can cut, style and color your locks! Even if they are fine or thin. We`ve found 20 hairstyles that perfectly balance out round faces, hide age and always remain stylish. A must-see for any woman 50+!

Round faces have soft and non-angular features. The forehead, cheekbones and rounded jawline are almost of the same width, the cheeks are usually full. If this is your case, try hairstyles that cover your ears, slimming asymmetrical cuts with side bangs, crops with angles, spikes, or shaggy layers. Looking for a pixie? Choose volume on top and backcombing. Prefer bobs? A chin length, angles in the front and a stacked/graduated back in modern bob variations will work for you best. Rounded hairstyles will flatter you only if they have a lot of texture. All this theory is visualized in the pictures below.

Round faces are not so hard to define: too soft features may be easily corrected by angles in your cut. As you’ve noticed, a hair color matters too. A new shade or several highlights here and there are always a good idea if you are over 50. So, the right cut will elongate and slim your full round face, and a fresh color will lift your mood and boost confidence. Try one of the above styles and you`ll see instant positive changes!
