Before you get bangs it’s important to be confident about your face shape. A lot of women think they have a round face shape, but do you really? The best way to sum up a round face is that it is the same width as it is in length with no major edges around the jaw. The goal is to make your face look more oval by adding length.
A lot of people have the misconception that if you have a round face, you shouldn’t have bangs or short hair, but you can have both, you just have to make it work for you. However, if you have a short forehead and a round face shape, then skip bangs all together. If your forehead is average sized or larger then bangs can be a great addition to your look! Here are some of our favorite side-swept bangs with a round face shape.
Long Angular Side-Swept Bangs with Long Hair
A great option for a round face shape is a long angular side-swept bang. The longer bang will help elongate the face shape and the angular cut will bring a little bit of an oval face shape that we’re trying to achieve. Also, the longer bang will remove some width from one side of your face, creating a slimmer look.
Heavy Side-Swept Bangs with Pixie Haircut
We’re throwing away all misconceptions about a round face shape with this hairstyle. You don’t have to hide behind your hair with your round face shape. Actress Ginnifer Goodwin shows us just how good a short haircut and bangs can look. A heavy side-swept bang will angle the face shape and draw attraction away from the center of the face, creating a longer and narrower face shape.
Eyebrow-Length Side-Swept Bangs
If you have a round face-shape, we don’t recommend short bangs because it will cut off some of the length that you’re already lacking. However, eyebrow-length brows can be the perfect compromise between bold bangs and face-shape flattering bangs. A slight subtle side-part with bangs that are slightly layered starting at the eyebrows look perfect with a long layered haircut.
Long Wispy Side-Swept Bangs
If you want side swept bangs with a round face, it’s a good idea to keep them longer so that you can tuck them behind your ears. This will still give you the charm of bangs without removing length. Just be careful when you style them to not add too much width on the side of your face.
Side-Swept Bangs with Asymmetrical Bob
If you want a new haircut and new bangs, then try this look for your round face shape. The asymmetrical cut will add length to the one side of your face, which will draw the eyes attraction to the length rather than the width of your round face shape. The side-swept bangs will show off your gorgeous eyes by making your face look slightly narrower. You could even style this look with a natural beach wave texture.
