For women with a youthful round face shape they know that finding the right hairstyle that doesn’t add width or shorten your face can be a challenge. The round-face girl tends to hide behind long tresses to elongate and thin the face, and although this strategy is effective, sometimes you want to cut off your long hair for a low-maintenance and shorter hairstyle. Women with round faces don’t have to fear short length, they just have to learn how to use it to emphasize their facial features rather than work against them. Here are Hair World Mag’s favorite trendy short hairstyles for round faces.
Asymmetrical Bobs are Popular for a Rounded Face
The edgy asymmetrical cut is tremendously trendy and chic and best of all, it works perfectly with a round face shape. The longer front sections are a long focal point which elongates the face. Add some side-swept bangs for additional face-framing which will help thin the roundness.
Side Bangs with Short Hair
Side swept bangs create angles which frames the face, unlike blunt bangs which shorten the face. A side-swept bang that is lightly layered over the eyebrow and hits around the cheekbone is perfect for a round face shape.
Mussed Up Pixie
The key to balancing a round face is to add length to equal the width of the roundness in the cheeks. A mussy textured pixie cut with lots of volume on top of the head is going to add lots of (stylish) length. The look is easy to achieve with a few minutes spent curling the pixie with a large barrel curling iron so you don’t have to worry about additional maintenance for the mussed-up-look.
Layered Pixie and Edgy Bangs
Actress Ginnifer Goodwin (a round face shape celeb) looks amazing with her layered pixie cut styled with longer bangs. The long bangs add definition and emphasize the soft facial features that generally come with a round face shape, also the layers add a edgy look.
