40 Beautiful Hairstyles for Round Faces

You might think that haircuts for round faces are limited because you need to take into account your face shape, and there are many no’s, however, you couldn’t be more wrong! We’ve got a list of beautiful, chic styles that you can try if you’ve got a round face shape.

1. Shag with Bangs and Highlights

Bangs for a round face can look so beautiful when they are wispy and tailored to your best facial features. Opt for eyebrow-skimming bangs so you can have more movement and texture in your style.

2. Teased Rose Gold Bob

Adding a side-swept fringe to a bob cut helps with dynamics and elongating lines around your face which results in a flattering, statement look.

3. Long Bob for Thick Hair and a Round Face

Longer hair without any bangs is also a good solution for a round face. If you like to wear your hair split in the middle or slightly off-center, try the basic no-bangs lob.

When sorting out hairstyles for your round face shape, you should try a bob cut with choppy layers to get that texture and bounce.

7. Side-Parted Perm Lob

A medium-length hairstyle for women with round faces can feature tight curls but try also to add height to it balancing out the added volume on the sides. The deep side part copes with the task. Keep your curls hydrated and healthy by adding anti-frizz cream after styling.

The peek-a-boo bangs are a famous slimming trick for a round face, but this bob also stuns with its silver brown color combo. The contrast of warm eyes and a cool hair color is amazing!

Long and medium hairstyles for round faces are easier to pull off because the length makes up for the excessive width of a full face. We love how chic and edgy this look is.
