80 best hairstyles for round faces – new hairstyle trends
If you have a round face, it is easy to think that you can not get away with certain hairstyles, for fear that they will make your face appear rounder, wider, thicker …
The good news is that you’re not the only person in the world with a round face, and many other people out there create a whole world of hairstyles. In your round-faced club, you’ll find such beauties as Kate Bosworth, Fergie, Oprah Winfrey, Catherine Zeta Jones and of course some of the beauties you’ll find if you look at some of these prominent examples from the 80s best Hairstyles for round faces !
1. Selena Gomez – Short and bouncy
One of the sweetest looks, this isn’t just a haircut that’s suitable for the younger generation. When blowing with the help of a blow dryer and a round brush, it doesn’t matter whether you have layered or short hair, you can pull it off. As long as you keep it a little longer, like Selena did here, your face won’t look rounder!
2. Selena Gomez – long and lush
Don’t worry if you don’t have nice long locks like Selena Gomez here, there are plenty of places you can buy clip-in hair extensions, and with a little work, it won’t even have to look like this if you wear hair extensions at all! Simply roll up the ends and make them look a bit stringy and off you go!
3. Kate Upton – Wild & Wavy
Kate Upton is one of the prettiest celebrities with round faces, and we find that she looks best with her long locks, as beautifully shown in this picture. A simple center parting has been enriched with volumizing mousse, and heated rollers add extra momentum. Curl the rest with a big barrel roller and off you go, a dash of hairspray to send you on the way.
4. Mila Kunis – pinned back and cute
Another of the most beautiful women in the world, Mila Kunis is another celebrity in the round-faced club, and as you can see from her, there are quite a few manageable hairstyles. Take this as a good example. Curled and nailed back with a small barrel of curling tong, as neglected as you like, and you have an undo that doesn’t take too long, but still looks super sexy and ultra glamorous. The center parting helps to balance the round face and make it look less.
5. Mila Kunis – Slicked & Straight
Mila Kunis not only shows you everything about volume and curls, but also shows you how to rock hair for a round face with great style, brush it over her hair with straightening iron and some smoothing serum smooth and give it a smooth look. It has a few layers here, which can help with a larger volume, but even if you have hair, you can get the same straight look.
6. Demi Lovato – Side-Swept Bangs
To keep things simple here, Demi Lovato worked with her own natural hair wave to achieve this slightly grubby but super adorable look. Pop’s poppieste princess has taken a lot of looks at her time in the charts, but this is one of our special favorites with a look that is both elegant and stylish, while still adding the somewhat rough punk appeal she has.
Sweet the bangs over one side with a center parting to reproduce this look, and simply scratch the natural wave of your hair with some sea salt spray (sea salt mixed with water) and fix with some hair spray.
7. Emma Stein – short and twisted
This red Emma Stone classic, known for both long and short styles, is perfect if you want a shorter cut and simply shines with a tight roll by adding simple curls.
Whether you have a long or short bob, you can recreate the look, and remember to add this (or just a little bit of) the center separator to keep things symmetrical.
8. Emma Stone – Asymmetrical side swept
Stroking part of the hair on one side of the face, like these side-fringed pony shapes modeled by the beautiful Emma Stone, gives you a perfect opportunity, EVERY Achieve style and cut. Once you remove the longer section that almost half covers the face, you open the face up and that can make it look rounder. It has the same effect as pulling all your hair into a tight ponytail – that’s not a look that many round-faced girls can do, you know?
9. Renee Zellweger – short and simple
Bridget Jones herself has always been one of our favorite blondes, and although she seems to rock the same (or similar) styles over the years, it is one that makes her round face proud.
This shorter cut works well because it contains some volume. Renee has pretty fine, thin hair, which can make a shorter style quite difficult, but like most short curls, as long as you remember to keep some of that jump, you’ll be fine. Lean, short styles don’t work as well, although there are always exceptions to the rules.
10. Renee Zellweger – This one tendrill
One of the smartest tips you learn when you have a round face is to always have a strand of hair that sits in front of the ear, not behind it. It’s just a tiny thing, but it can make the difference to a round face, as Renee Zellweger shows here. If that one strand of hair on the left side of her face and back behind the ear had been removed, her entire face would have been visible, and this would make the roundness much more apparent.
11. Margot Robbie – Deeply divided
Deep partings work well on round-faced girls, just like Hollywood siren Margot Robbie shows us here. By changing the place where you part, you change the focus of your face, and if it deviates from the center, it can give the impression that the face is less rounded. This is a good tip if you are thinking of editing the shorter cuts and styles, as shorter lengths, as we mentioned earlier, can be more difficult if you have a round face. Margot heard our advice here too – she left some volume in the style instead of tearing it down.
12. Margot Robbie – color change
Ok, she also let her hair grow, but did you notice the dhow simply by changing the color of her hair, Margot Robbie has gone from a blonde bombshell to a hot, mysterious, brunette Vixen? Two colors – two very different looks!
If you have a round face and are not satisfied with the way your hair looks, why not try changing the color and changing the cut? You can even add a hair extension to get the same classic and elegant look you can see here.
13. Cameron Diaz – Bigger and Better
Heated rollers are your best friend if you have a round face because volume is the one thing that helps smooth the face shape in no time.
Take this simple and pretty look from Cameron Diaz. Washed out, ironed upside down, with hair straightening or a large barrel roller to create the loose, rolled waves and turn to the side so that the bangs follow. You can also wear some super cute earrings!
14. Cameron Diaz – Lang & Nice
Long hair just looks fabulous on round face shapes, and the length really helps pull the face down, making it look a lot slimmer. Long and choppy layers are another great idea that lies between the chin and below, well mixed and maybe even curled up, just like Cameron did here.
15. Hayden Panettiere – Graduate Lengths
If you want to rock short straight hair with a round face, Hayden Panettiere shows you how to do it right – by working different lengths into your "Do".
She has graduated lengths that go from her light bangs to the rest of the hair, which in turn is longer at the front and shorter at the back. Show this image to your hairdresser, it works on round faces, heart-shaped faces and even square faces!
16. Hayden Panettiere – High hair
As we mentioned earlier, wearing the hair right on your head or back in a high ponytail can be hard work for a round face. The actress Hayden Panettiere shows us here how it is done.
By adding this top knot right on her head, she gives the impression that her hair is more oval than round. If you’re trying to achieve this look, go over it with a baby toothbrush, with a light spray of hairspray to get rid of all the flying hair. This, though simple, is a fairly high maintenance, and is almost impossible with short or layered hair unless the hair has grown to a length where it can all be put in that high bun.
17. Chrissy Teigen – Big Bang! bonus!
Most girls have the impression that if they have a round face, they cannot wear bangs. As the wife of the music genius, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen shows you can.
If you can see, the bangs catch on the head much further back than they normally would, which almost helps to lengthen the forehead and make the face appear longer. It’s like moving the center – it changes the rest of the face completely.
18.Kelly Clarkson – The Pob
The pob, or Posh Bob, was first bought by Posh Spice herself, Victoria Beckham. Since then, it has developed into a kind of game changer, and even round faces can play this pretty, smooth, and tough look with ease by simply adapting it to the requirements of their own face shape.
Just like Kelly Clarkson with a round expression, you have the front of your hair longer than the back, go to an almost pointed cone. This helps lengthen the face and make it appear longer. It works almost exactly like vertical stripes on a dress – it gets thinner.
19.Kelly Clarkson – gently curled
These wide, gently wavy waves are the best kind of curly hair for a round face, especially when you combine it with the nice long length that Kelly Clarkson has here. These are two good tips if you want to rock curly hair as round facets – the longer the better, and the looser, softer the waves, the better.
The wider waves will deviate from the curvature of your face shape, and it also gives you the chance that your hair is a bit natural too. If you still have a natural wave or wave, take some of the sea salt spray we mention (mixed with sea salt and water) and crack it into the tips of your hair as you spray it. You will get boho beachy waves even if you are not bothered to get the curling iron.
20. Miranda Lambert – fake asymmetrical bob
If you’re not quite brave enough to cut your bob into an asymmetrical style, fake it by pushing (and sliding back) one side behind your ear while letting the other drop forward. Add a deep side parting and paint everything with some volume and add a fairly choppy one-length cut to the rest, and you have a winning hairstyle that we would consider medium maintenance.
21. Miranda Lambert – cheek-length pony
The cheek-length angled pony as seen here on Miranda Lambert is great if you have a round face but still want to give a pony. Most women with round faces won’t notice the idea of bangs at all simply because they are known for making their faces appear fuller or thicker, but if you add a classic twist, the look will be just the opposite.
The pony, which falls sexy over one eye, not only gives the get-up a mysterious atmosphere, but also hides half of the face, which makes it appear much smaller.
22. Olivia Munn – Curly Round the Chin
If you have short hair but still want to be curly, use the curls to your advantage. Short and curly hair is usually a big no-no for anyone with a round face, but as Olivia Munn shows, you can rock it if you have the know-how.
Turning the curls away from your face distracts you from the round shape, but at the same time the curls work just like the dark spots on these smart dresses, which make your waist look slimmer than it is …
(We all own one of these dresses, right girls?)
23. Olivia Munn – cleverly placed and classic
It’s the typical glamorous Hollywood look, but this deep goodbye and elegant waves do a lot more than just go back to the 50s era, where men still kept the door open for women, and they also carried your bags!
With this clever curl, which starts from the left air and penetrates in soft layers to the clavicle, you reap many advantages. You hide part of the face and make it appear smaller. They also draw attention to your eyes and the curls that surround them. If you pull the hair back behind an ear, you can also present a nice pair of earrings, which in turn draws attention away from a round face. It’s just clever planning.
24. Amy Adams – Face frame tendrils
You can rock any improvement if you learn this simple tip for the front of your style. With a center parting, drop two tendrils on either side of your face, as Hollywood beauty Amy Adams shows here. Curving it around the length of your chin and under your face will help tighten things up. Just a tip for you!
25. Sarah Hyland – Asymmetric Waves
Round faces are usually advised to avoid mass and weight on the sides (cheeks) of the face, but Sarah Hyland shows you here how to do it right by doing her hair with the loose waves as she would normally then I just hurled it aside. If there is volume and weight on only one side, the result is an off-symmetrical look that can help flatter a round face, especially for short hairstyles.
26. Sarah Hyland – Bang-Away a broad hairline
People with round faces often have fairly broad hairlines, and Sarah Hyland shows you how to get to know them with hardly a bang that separates them (from the middle) and can almost be connected to the rest of her hair. The simple ponytail just keeps things professional, but the loosely hanging layers help flatter an otherwise boring hairstyle.
27. Katie Holmes – The Tapered Bob
Round-faced Katie Holmes has rocked both long and short hair over the years, but we love this special darling of us – the conical bob.
If you want to cut your hair very short with a round face, make sure that the hairdresser cuts into the ends to rejuvenate or shave. This helps to soften the look, as long, blunt cuts often make the face appear rounder.
28. Katie Holmes – Messy, of course
Every now and then it pays off that your hair becomes natural and does its own thing. Let us not all be satisfied / delete / style / style / too much?
Just like Katie Holmes here, just wash and dry, just tame the pony with a hair dryer and a round brush. You could add a few odd curls here, but really, your own natural wave should do the trick well.
29. Miranda Kerr – Five Minute Glam Curls
Let’s say you only had five minutes to get your hair ready for an event that required glamorous, sophisticated beauty. This Miranda Kerr style is only if you have medium or long hair and a round face.
Put the hair in a high ponytail and curl the hair that is hanging down while your hair is upside down. Release the bangs and sweep the hair aside, separating just above one eye. Wrap the front part in the rest of the hair so that it falls flush, and tease the waves in place while securing with hairspray.
30. Adele – collarbone skimming curls
If you’re looking for a way to lengthen your face while still smuggling things for a special event, consider this Adele beauty.
The clavicle that rounds off the curls at the tips of the hair not only has a very flattering length, but also helps to create some volume under the chin, which distracts attention from her face. Heated curlers and a lot of extra volume would have been most likely used for this oomph at the roots, but if you have thick hair, you may find that this look is actually quite simple!
31. Adele – Take it off your face
If you have curls or a lot of volume in your hair, it is advisable to make sure that you leave your forehead free so that the face is not “framed”. Long curls give the face more length, but if you have bangs or lots of chic curls in the front and top, you might have the opposite effect.
32. Dakota Fanning – Au natural grow-out
Dakota Fanning gives you the opportunity to develop a shorter cut and roots at the same time with this simple and natural look. You can just wash and blow dry the hair so that the parting falls wherever it feels. Use a round brush to get the ends into the shape you want.
33.Drew Barrymore – short & Sweet
Back to the roots – if these celebrities show you something about rocking round faces, the roots will be fine from time to time!
This look is both simple and messy, but only adds to the punk cuteness that Drew brings to the table. With additional layers right at the bottom of a short do, you can add a bit more weight and bounce, and ruffling it with your fingers is all it takes to get this show on the road.
34. Drew Barrymore – mixed length layers
Loose, framing layers are the right answer when it comes to getting long hair with a round face properly. Start the first platform of layers just below the chin to lengthen the face and add some curly tendrils for a slightly more glamorous look. Again, we have a center vertex, but you could place that vertex practically anywhere you wanted by editing these longer layers to frame the face instead of marking it.
35. Fergie – Smoothed back pony
Fergie has had a lot of weird and wonderful hairstyles over the years, but we love her with this beautiful “brand” ombre color that was just pulled off her face in a simple ponytail. The trick here is to add the front of the bangs if you have a round face, and usually a hint of dry shampoo and a little backcombing will only do the trick nicely. It’s a simple look that is done in just three minutes. Remember to spray a little hairspray to avoid the ends flying off.
36. Heidi Klum – Faked Pony
If you don’t have a pony, there is a way that you can almost “fake” them, as Heidi Klum shows here. We have long discussed side-sweeping bangs THE Bangs are when you have a round face, and although Heidi actually didn’t have a bangs in her hair, she managed to fake it by sweeping the hair to one side and using the layers on one side to one side to create a swept bang look on the other hand.
37. Heidi Klum – Fake Farrah
Do you remember the 70s film Farah Fawcett, who carried Charlie’s Angel? That is why this hairstyle shown by Heidi Klum is so popular – such a classic. It is both fussy and simple at the same time and is easy to reach with a medium-sized curling iron. You have to curl the hair in fairly small sections, so if you have fairly long closures, you have to give yourself plenty of time to complete the whole hairline. Add a side parting and side grind the loose looks on the front to soften the wider forehead, and you have a great, fussy, elegant, yet simple look for a round face and a sophisticated event.
38. Abigail Breslin – Boost at the roots
The half-up, half-down hairstyle is very popular with most face shapes, and there is no difference with the round face shape. Abigail Breslin added some volume, and if you have really fine hair, you can buy small bump clips that are placed under the hair to fake some extra volume. Curl the ends and put a nice handle or bow where you put it back, and you have such a sophisticated and simple look that is both easy to reach and flattering for round faces.
39. Ginnifer Goodwin – Super Short Sweet Pixie
Ginnifer Goodwin is known for bringing out some pretty trendy hairstyles, and this super short and super cute pixie is something most round-faced girls just wouldn’t be brave enough to try.
The thing that helps here is the volume at the roots and at the top that we kept suggesting, and the tiered bangs that help add something new to the forehead so that it’s not all … forehead.
40. Ginnifer Goodwin – Long and over the shoulder
If you want to achieve a look like this one, where it’s turned upside down in a dramatic Hollywood manner, you have to design it that way. Don’t just think that you can curl your hair and then sweep over it because it probably won’t stay that way. Instead, put everything on one side and then roll what’s left. The curls will interlock and help keep everything in place for starters, and it will be easier to finish the look exactly how you want it to.
41. Isla Fisher – Tied back and pretty
She doesn’t need fussy styles to look beautiful, and Isla Fisher has a very light look in this look – a side parting with side-swept bangs (two of the round round face looks) and the rest of the hair tied back in a grubby bun on the back.
Knit back, rough styles aren’t good for a round face, so take a sheet from Isla’s book and learn to let things go a little more loosely!
42. Isla Fisher – Messy Boho Braid
The messy boho braid is a look worn by many face shapes, with round faces just one of them. After you’ve tied up your braid, use your fingers to pull it apart to make it look tattered. Once again, the side-swept bangs and parting with the large forehead and wide cheeks, which are often connected with round faces, help.
43. Kirsten Dunst – Asymmetrical bangs
Another great way to wear round face bangs is how Kirsten Dunst did it here. Asymmetrical bangs mean that your bangs are cut in different short lengths and can be worn in different ways. The height always helps to soften a wide forehead so that the bangs can be pulled out of the face in a pouf or quiff. Drop it and drop it, as Kirsten naturally would like here, and you have a much more natural look that is much easier to reach and maintain.
44. Kirsten Dunst – Undressed bangs
If you’ve been trying to grow bangs for a while but are struggling because of your round face and soft features, learn from Kirsten Dunst and develop them in style.
Many women are startled by the bangs because the growth process turns out to be such a pain, but the simple part is slightly off-center and blends into the rest of the hair as soon as they are long enough to give you a multi-layered tool to narrow narrow or full cheeks.
45. Mandy Moore – Messy Super Short Bob
This is actually a great cut for a round face if you have a much shorter style like the pixie grow. Left to grow normally, with shaggy lengths slightly flared with a little styling wax, and you’ve got the right combination for a round face. The different layers help soften the face, and the side-swept bangs help make the forehead much smaller.
46. Mandy Moore – Large and bouncy
Pop’s own Mandy Moore gives you a classic look that’s trending right now with Kate Middleton, the princess EVERYONE talks about, even if she has it as her own.
You need great condition hair to get a look as shiny as this, so one thing you should always do is trim well every six to eight weeks to get rid of split and dead ends, and always be sure to moisturize , give your hair a weekly intensive treatment, especially if you’re prone to overstyling or using multiple products.
Once you have great condition hair, no matter what type of face shape you have, every look will be reachable.
47. Penelope Cruz – Loose Pull Back
Loose hairstyles are a clear victory with round faces, as Penelope Cruz shows you here in the simplest style ever. After washing and blow drying, straighten the hair and pull back the front half of the hair by scratching some loose tendrils before attaching them to the back with a few handles. It’s simple but effective, and with longer layers on the front, is the perfect way to flatter the round Latino face.
48. Christina Ricci – Waves Stuck Out
If you have curls with a round face, whether on long or short hair, always pull the curls away from your face to open it and flatter it at the same time. Do the same with your bangs to blend everything together, and you’ll see that this works on both the short bob seen here and longer styles.
49. Christina Ricci – Eyebrow Skimming Bangs
The way Christina Ricci does her sport here just shows how much our two favorite round head / bang tips work. Not only does it have an irregular cut to the ears, longer on the ears and shorter in the middle, but they are also further back on the head than they would normally. If you give the impression of an oval face instead of a round one, you have many more options for the hairstyle, as this shows a straight and slim look.
50.Sarah Michelle Gellar – Loose Side Braid
Do you know how long it takes to recreate this simple round face hairstyle? About five minutes, that long.
Remove the hair from your face and drop it to one side before braiding and securing it with a hair tie. Drop the natural waves around your face and sweep your layers or bangs across the side before adding an Alice band or other hair accessory if you want to do the "jazz" look!
Simple and yet effective – as the beautiful Sarah Michelle Gellar shows.
51. Maria Menounos – loose and layered
Many loose layers have given this look the beauty that attracted it. The long layers that run through the hair look great when curled up, and even look good when straightened – something you’ll both see in this look. The top half was left straight with the bottom half pulled to one side and a slight wave given as opposed to a tight curve.
52. Elisha Cuthbert – The Simple Bob
Lengthy butt cuts are usually not particularly good for those with round faces, but as Elisha Cuthbert shows, it can be done. Just make sure that the length extends to the chin and that the bangs fit the length of your remaining hair.
53. Elisha Cuthbert – Licked to the side
It’s a pretty 80s power woman style, but it’s fine because it’s a trend that’s coming back. The short bob, as seen in the first look, has experienced an immediate boom with this slightly different way of wearing it. Everything was smoothed out to the side instead of being teased to the side, a wet look gel was used to give it that super shiny appearance. It’s easy, but you need to remember to play makeup with your eyes so it doesn’t look too strong.
54. Imogen Poots – Braid It
Imagoen Poots has a face that should be shown and she does it brilliantly with one of the most important Trends for this summer – braids.
A great look for those who don’t have bangs, but still want a helping hand that takes the hair off their faces during hot summer (wide foreheads and hair mixed make stains and blackheads!), A loose French braid is enough on one side face to face to create an almost Alice band effect with your own. Let some curly waves hang and pin the hair in the back right to keep your neck cool!
It’s best to practice on your braids!
55. Kelly Osbourne – The Marilyn
The broad forehead is characteristic of a round forehead. Creating fussy, intricate looks can be difficult, but as Kelly Osbourne shows, it doesn’t stop you from rocking the classics. We call this name The Marilyn, who closely mimics how the blonde bombshell modeled her hair, and the tendrils, which cut the two sides of the forehead with large curls, become almost half smaller and give the immersion of a more heart-shaped face. By the way, that was Marilyn’s face shape!
56. Kelly Osbourne – Side-Swept Hair
If you don’t have bangs to sweep to the side, don’t worry because you can fake it and even achieve the same effect of taking off a round face by simply wearing a hairstyle that falls to the side. There was a diagonal side parting that helped create the deep flickering that helps flatter the round face on Kelly Osbourne, and the rest of the hair was naturally dropped to one side, either fixed in place or using a hair band , It’s simple but effective, and it doesn’t have to be purple like this chick!
57. Malin Akerman – Cheek Thinner
Everyone wants cheek fillers these days while the round faces of us are looking to lower our cheeks! Malin Akerman shows you how to get it right with this bubbly blonde look,
58. Malin Akerman – Center saying goodbye to shifts
Malin Akerman once again makes round hair with this beautiful and simple look that is both classic and elegant. A center parting was used with some even, feather-like layers around the front of the face. Starting from the cheek height, they help frame and soften the face, with the length helping to lengthen it even further.
59. Emily Browning – short & Sweet
Once again proving the point that layers are everything when it comes to rocking short hair with a round face, Emily Browning sports a super cute look that involves a lot of short and choppy layers, with a deep side-swept front and parting. It’s simple and to the point, and fairly easy to maintain, although growing it out might be a pain in your backside.
60. Emily Browning – Cute Victorian Curls
Emily Browning has the prim and proper ‘Victorian’ curly look down right here, even managing pretty tight curls all around the face with her pretty, round face. Again we have the side-parting which can be quite difficult if you have fine hair, but with the addition of a few extra curls thrown in for good measure to frame the face, you have a look that isn’t too difficult, doesn ‘ t take too long, and is easily worn for most events and occasions.
61. Kate Bosworth – How to Slick Down Right
She’s a natural beauty so she doesn’t need fussy hair and makeup to bring out the best in her. However, not everyone can pull this harsh, slicked-down and straightened look, especially with a round face.
The trick is to create the parting as deep as you can into one side. It takes the center focal point from the middle of your face, and with the hair cleverly draped over one side, gives you a much thinner face shape appearance. Again, we have that collarbone skimming length which as we’ve suggested time and time again, is one of the best lengths if you want to go for short hair with a round face.
62. Kate Bosworth – Long & Natural
Natural is the best hair, I’d say, and there are a number of women on this list that have rocked just-natural hair pretty well. Kate Bosworth here is just another classic example.
The hair has been poofed to perfection, with just the right amount of wave to stop it looking big and curly, but at the same time, stopping it being too slicked down and stuck to the face. If you only have a few moments to get ready in the morning, try blow-drying your hair upside down with some extra-volume mousse. Pull the front piece back and secure in place, and tease some of the hair ever so slightly, to give you a bit more ‘fake’ volume if you need it.
63. Michelle Williams – Asymmetrically Short
It’s quite an odd style, and definitely not one that just any old girl could pull off, but if you’re looking to make a statement and have a round face like Marilyn Monroe actress Michelle Williams here, this asymmetrical cut is a great way to go super short, without accentuating your round face.
Keeping things long on one side helps to make things a little un-even, and when they are asymmetrical like this, you can’t really tell what kind of face shape she has. It’s a smart way of rocking a short look.
64. Michelle Williams – Low, Messy Knot
If you only have a few moments spare to do your hair, this great style for round faces, as sported by Michelle Williams, is definitely one to learn… And quick!
Simply out the hair back from the face loosely, tying into a chignon or knot and holding in place with pins. Let the front of your hair fall down as it naturally would, allowing those shorter layers to frame and soften your round face. The added curls help to soften things even further.
65. Tatyana Ali – Spiraled & Short
Tight curls and short hair don’t normally go hand in hand, but Tatyana Ali shows you exactly how to do it right, by setting it off with a very deep side parting, and started curling the hair with a small-barrel curling iron, main frame already in place. Great for afro hair!
66. Tatyana Ali – Half Up, Half Down
One of the easiest, quickest hairstyles in the world is this classic half-up, half-down beauty which can be done on clean hair, dirty hair, unkempt hair, and any other hair you can think of!
The height at the roots will stop your round face from becoming a problem with this pulled-back look, and try to make sure the length of your hair sits on one shoulder, or both shoulders, rather than straight down your back to prevent it all from looking too harsh.
67. Amber Tamblyn – Short & Wavy
If tight curls aren’t really your thing and let’s face it, most round faced girls just can’t pull it off, make the curls but then tease them out with your fingers afterwards, so they sort of fall in line and give you a much more structured look. Once again, there’s that side-parting too!
68. Amber Tamblyn – side-framing layers
She’s mastered a number of hairstyles and Amber Tamblyn rocks the longer-length look for a round face here, pulling the main front of the hair back and leaving to fall straight down, while the bangs have been pushed over to one side, and loose tendrils are left to frame her face and make it seem less round.
69. Rachael Leigh Cook – Angled Bangs
Full bangs and short hair are not two words that you would normally associated with a round face, but somehow Rachel Leigh Cook seems to rock the look totally! The trick to this one is to angle the bangs – they are longer towards the ears than they are in the center, and although that would first seem as if it would rounden the face off further, it actually has the opposite effect. Work up the eye makeup, and you have yourself a winner!
70. Rachael Leigh Cook – Long and Free-Flowing
Fine hair can be a nightmare, especially in the summer, so why not leave things long and free-flowing just like Rachel here?
Wash, blow-dry, or even leave to dry naturally, brushing as you go with a fine-tooth comb. Again, as the hair is drying, brush the bangs over to one side to dry naturally in that place, and you can even consider adding a grip if they won’t stay where you want them to. Your hair won’t take long to dry in the summer heat, and it sure does give your poor hair a break!
71. Lauren Ambrose – Subtle Long Layers
One of the easiest ways to wear a wide forehead or round face is to add subtle layers around the front of your face. As you can see from this Lauren Ambrose example, the layers really help to narrow a round face, and it also helps to elongate the jaw line too with strategically placed shorter lengths of wispy hair. It’s a small touch, and one that takes just a few minutes in the hairdressers, but could make the world of difference.
Remember – layers are a round-faced girls best friend!
72. Charlotte Church – Barely-There Bangs
If you’re too scared of rocking full bangs like the Chrissy Tiegen beauty we showed earlier, try doing it the Charlotte Church way and add wispier bangs. Not quite as full as to box the face in, but still there enough to break the forehead up. It’s like the perfect compromise if you’re not quite sure, and it won’t take long to grow them out (add flattering, face -framing layers) if you aren’t quite sure.
73. Lily Cole – Curly Face-Framer
This look goes against most of the things we would suggest for a round face but somehow, Lily Cole manages to pull it off with style. It does make her look older though, don’t you think?
A medium sized curling iron has been used to create the flick-like curls that are framing her face, and the bangs have even been curled into place, giving her volume and heigh which is perhaps how she manages to get away with it!
74. Lily Cole – Messed up Natural
Wash it, dry it, leave out the curls (if you have them) and leave it. That’s as simple as it gets with this Lily Cole look, complete with slightly off-center parting and bangs swept over to one side in again, a lazy and messed up way. Great for those days where you really can’t be bothered, and with a touch of dry shampoo, will even work for dirty / greasy hair too! Just use heated rollers to fake some volume if you need to.
75. Valorie Curry – Tapered Pixie
See – you can even rock a pixie cut if you have a round face, just like Valorie Curry shows us here. She just does the smart thing and starts the side-swept bangs from almost the center of the head (to help elongate the face), and she has kept hair around her eyes too – longer than the hair would be at the back.
If the hair is cut too short around the ears, you are just a round head with ears sticking out. This is also why you should never tuck your hair behind both ears if you have a round face. Always leave that one tendril hanging down (as we’ve mentioned before).
76. Katherine McPhee – Parted Bangs
We’ve had side swept bangs, now it’s time to learn about parted bangs. Now, once upon a time, this was considered a bad thing and only done when you hadn’t found the time to head to the salon recently. These days on the other hand, it’s a fashion trend thats doing us all a favor.
You can part them in the center or to one side, but just make sure they aren’t greasy. Here’s a little tip for you – if you don’t have time to wash all of your hair, just wash your bangs or the front!
77. Katherine McPhee – Voluminous ‘XLob’
The XLob (or extra-long bob) is great for round faces, especially when you add plenty of volume. Adele is another fan of the big, boyffanty look, and she has a round face too just like Katherine McPhee.
A cut to the collarbone is a very flattering length for round faces, and by having the bulk of the volume from the cheeks down, you have the slimming effect too, especially if you have round cheeks.
78. Frieda Pinto
79. Delphine Chaneac – Great Gatsby Inspired Short Hair
Another bold and daring look for Delphine Chaneac (she’s full of them), she shows you how to do a dramatic and glamorous Great Gatsby style 30’s themed hairstyle here, with waves as opposed to curls, sleeked over to one side. With the sides of the hair, they have been pushed back (and slicked again), but the height on top stops the round face from becoming an issue with this modern, yet conventional look all at the same time.
80. Delphine Chaneac – Pulled Back & Pinned
This is quite a harsh look, and isn’t one that most women with round faces are going to want to go for, mostly because it leaves the wide forehead complete exposed. However, if you’re smart and learn how to wear it properly, you’ll see that this five-minute, pinned-back hairstyle is great for so many reasons. The collarbone grazing length is the most flattering short hair for round faces, while the slightly off-center parting stops the thing from looking too harsh.
