If you have a round face shape then you probably know the challenges of finding the perfect hairstyle that doesn’t add width or roundness but rather elongates your shape and emphasizes your eyes, nose, and cheeks. Medium length hair is an ideal length for a round face. Here are several medium length hairstyles that look great with a round face shape and can be pulled off with any type of hair texture.
Shoulder Length Layers and Side-Bangs
A shoulder-length cut with long layers will create the illusion of length and the side-swept bangs will frame your face and slim the round shape. The best part about this hairstyle is you can curl in the ends for a voluminous look that won’t add width.
Subtle A-Line Long Bob
An A-line cut that is slightly shorter in the back than in the front will give you a modern and chic look as well as work to elongate your face shape. The look works best if the texture is kept straight or subtle beach waves.
Voluminous Luscious Waves

Center Part and Tousled Hairstyle
A round face can really pull off both a side part and center part. If you like to change up your part to keep your hair voluminous and the style new then try a center part with a straight texture but don’t worry about keeping your tresses polished and sleek, the wilder – the better.
Unkempt Side Ponytail
If you have a round face and you’re looking for a haircut that will show off your beauty but not emphasize the roundness of your face shape then a medium length cut with side-swept bangs is ideal. A great hairstyle is this disheveled and side-swept ponytail. The bangs will draw the eyes towards your eyes, nose, and cheeks, which will highlight your best features.
Layered and Face-Framing Waves
A medium length cut with waves starting at the cheekbones is a great hairstyle of a round face. Style the layers with big loose waves for a versatile and flattering hairstyle.
Shoulder Length Sleek Blunt Bob
Long hairstyles can be too overwhelming for a round face and add too much width because of the texture and short styles often make faces look rounder but this shoulder length sleek bob is perfect. The length is just right and the blunt cut and sleek texture creates the illusion of length and eliminates any additional roundness.
Medium Length Shag
Shag is an edgy hairstyle that looks rocking with a round face. The shag will add volume to your hair, which is perfect for adding length. There is a lot of versatility you can obtain with a shag hairstyle so you don’t have to stick to one look everyday. Opt for a center part or dramatic side-part. Longer bangs will give you the versatility to style with a side-swept bang or simply an additional layer with the shag.
