Got a Rounder Face? Best Hairstyles for Fuller or Plus Size Faces

October 25, 2011

If you’ve been blessed with a beautiful round face, chances are you’re constantly trying to find a hairstyle to complement its shape. A great round face hairstyle is important because some hairstyles can make a plus size face look even fuller. In fact, a great cut can highlight your best features and even slim the shape of your face. On the downside, a bad haircut can make you look heavier in the face than you actually are. Use these tips as a starting point when talking to your hairdresser about what you should do with your hair next! Waves And Layers Slim the Face If your hair is long, you can instantly slim the shape of your face by wearing it wavy or by adding long layers. The long layers will distract from the fullness of your face and will draw attention to your beautiful hair. In addition, wavy layers are extremely popular right now. If your hair is naturally wavy, simply wash it, towel dry it a bit and allow it to dry without assistance the rest of the way. You can use your hand to do a scrunching technique on it, to help the waves set in. If you don’t have natural waves, simply make your own with a big barreled curling iron. Wearing Your Hair In An Partial Updo Slicking your hair back off of your face might be a big mistake if you’re a lady with a round face. By slicking the hair back or pulling it back tight, you can visually add pounds to your appearance. Instead of pulling all of your hair back off your face, when you have a round face you should leave a little hanging down on each side. This will allow you to sport a fancy updo without it overemphasizing the round shape of your face. Length of Cut: No Shorter Than Chin Length is Best If you want to slim the look of your round face, always be sure to leave your hair longer than your chin. While short bob cuts are extremely chic right now, they are not right for ladies with round faces because they will add visual weight to the cheeks. Of course, you can get a long bob that sits at least an inch below the chin. Whether you wear it curly or straight, just be sure the type of cut you choose falls to your chin or longer!
