If you have a round face then you know that the challenge is preventing width around your cheeks by adding length at the crown and the bottom of your face. Curly hair is perfect for that added volume around the top and creating luscious length at the ends. Both short or medium length curly hairstyles can work but it’s best to keep your curly hair long if you have a round face.
Keep your curls and face free of heavy bangs but don’t hesitate to opt for long wispy side-bangs. The long hair will dominate the roundness of your face. Adding subtle layers will also help frame and slim your face shape and help tame those crazy curls. Here are some long curly hairstyles that will flatter a round face shape.
Long Curly Layers with Side Part
A side-part is slimming because it draws attention away from the center of your face and creates flattering angles. The long layers will frame the bottom lengths for a thinner curly hairstyle to prevent too much width being created by the curls. Just don’t go too crazy with the layers or razored cut because it could puff out uncontrollably.
Long Curly Hair and Side-Swept Bangs
Modern Family star Sarah Hyland knows how to rock her long gorgeous curly locks with her super charming round face shape. She pairs her long locks with a side-swept bang that hits right above her eyebrow and layers into her hair for a flattering face-framing effect.
A deep side-part is going to create lots of volume, which will give your hair plenty of length at the crown. The curls being pushed to one side will balance out your facial features as the curls match up with your cheek and chin to emphasize the features. This style will also prevent adding too much width on both sides of your face.
Long Curly Ponytail
Sure you won’t wear your hair in a ponytail everyday but it is a go-to hairstyle for a lot of women and it works perfect for a round face and curly hair. With a round face you want a high ponytail with plenty of height at the crown, which is easy to achieve with those curly locks. If you have side-swept bangs then leave them down to frame your face. You can position the curly ponytail low and casual or high and bold – both will look flawless.
Half Up Hairstyle
Another simply hairstyle that will give you that volume you need for your round face is a simple half-up half-down hairstyle. Leave some wispy pieces of side bangs down at the side to avoid the severe slicked back. This hairstyle has plenty of versatility and you can add braids, tight or loose curls, twist in the back, accessories and more and they will all work for your face shape and hair type.
