If you have a round face shape then you are probably aware that some hairstyles work – and some simply don’t. Round face shapes don’t have the versatility of an oval face shape but they’re also certainly not limited. Straight hair is great for women with a round face because it doesn’t add width around the cheeks. Straight texture is also generally manageable and controllable which means you can opt for some awesome side-swept or Bridget Bardot bangs. Check out these hairstyles for women with a round face and straight hair.
The Straight Layered Pixie
Let’s start super short. Sure, you’re probably thinking you need long locks to thin your face, but a pixie can actually look incredible with a round face shape. Ginnifer Goodwin shows us that a pixie is a great choice with a round face. Just keep the sides short and all the layered textures up top to create the illusion of an oval shape.
Long Length and Center Part
If you have straight hair then make that texture work for you. A haircut that is at least 2-inches longer than your shoulders is perfect for your straight tresses but also works for a round shape because it draws the eyesight down which elongates your face shape. The center part is trendy and works well. An off-center part will help frame the face but it’s better with wavy texture.
Long Side-Swept Bangs and Long bob
These are a great option for straight hair and a round face. You don’t want short bangs when you have a round face because it can make your face appear shorter. A long side-sweep will frame and thin your face.
Layered Shoulder-Length Cut
A tousled straight hair texture and a shoulder-length cut with longer layers rather than side-swept bangs will elongate your face and give your hair body and volume.
Long Pixie with Bangs
Michelle Williams knows exactly how to rock short hair and a round face. This longer pixie crop cut with longer and slightly side-swept fringe creates length and volume. If you are not sure if you should get bangs then you can rest assured that this haircut gives a tremendously feminine and charming look.
