The truth of the matter is that hairstyles aren’t universal. Some cuts and ‘dos flatter more faces than others, and we’re not always sure of which ones to try. When it comes to rounder face shapes, they typically favor styles that slim their features more and really emphasize their hair. If you have a rounder face structure and are looking to try a new style, we’ve got you covered. Ahead, the best hairstyles that make round faces slimmer.
Letting medium to Long Beach waves flow against each side of your face will naturally slim it. The style puts all eyes on your effortless ‘do and sculpts your features. Bryce Scarlett gave us the perfect example with Gigi Hadid’s signature look.
Rather than going for short layers, cutting your hair into long layers will make it look fuller and more volumized. Laura Polko styled Chrissy Teigen’s long mane with the perfect waves.
For medium-length hair, opt for a wispy blowout instead of a pin-straight style. The volume will make your face look smaller. Gregory Russell gave Hailee Steinfeld a ton of body.
If you have natural curls, it’s time to let them out. The bigger the spirals, the slimmer the face. Bental Bott emphasized Shanina Shaik’s natural texture.
Just because you have a rounder face, doesn’t mean you can’t rock a bob. Add some waves and clip it to the side, for a more fun spin on the cut. Georgi Sandev gave Nina Dobrev Old Hollywood glamour vibes.
Straight & Long
Have ultra-long hair? Be bold and get your Cher hair on. The sleekness of the style will make contoured cheeks more noticeable. Chad Wood straightened Shay Mitchell’s locks to perfection.
Another great short ‘do for round face is the choppy and shaggy lob. It doesn’t flat out your roots and naturally slims your face. Lucy Hale has rocked hers by Kristin Ess for quite some time.
