Getting ready to head into the salon for a new hairstyle soon? It’s always excited to change up your look with your hair every once in a while. On the flip side, it can always been a little intimidating as well. It’s not always the easiest thing to change your hair and feel confident knowing that the hair style is going to be flattering for your face shape. If you’re a round faced beauty, you’re in the right place because we’re focusing on you! We’re sharing hairstyles that work best on round faces to give you a little hairstyle inspiration.
Traditional bob hair styles aren’t always the most flattering for round faces, but that doesn’t mean you can’t rock a bob hair style at all! Instead of the traditional straight across, blunt bob hair style asymmetrical bobs are a great alternative (that’s also much more flattering!). The asymmetrical aspect comes from one side being a bit longer than the other. This helps to create great, subtle definition to your face shape without overwhelming it. So if you’re not really into the long length, this is a great option to try out.
Bob hair styles can be tricky for round faces to wear confidently, but lob hair styles are a super flattering alternative if you’ve been looking for a hair style on the shorter side. Lobs are typically around shoulder length long, with the hair all being the same length (no layering). Adding some voluminous waves into a lob is a great way to add some definition to your hair and flatter a round face shape. If you like having bangs, adding in a small section of side swept bangs to the look is a great addition as well.
It’s a traditional look, that’s incredibly flattering on those with round faces. Long, gorgeous layered hair is timeless too. If you’re into long locks the best way to add a little volume and definition to the look is to have layers added in that start below the chin. This will make sure not to add too much volume around your cheeks, but be sure to create a flattering shape to your face.
Blunt Bangs and Long Length
Another great hair style for round faces, that’s totally on trend right now, is the blunt bangs and long length. Blunt, bold bangs are having a major moment right now and as it turns out they’re also really flattering for those with round faces. They add some definition to a round face and the long length in the rest of your hair helps to keep your face from having too much to overwhelm your face shape. The length instead helps to flatter your round face.
There are quite a few other hair styles that are great for those with a round face shape, but we wanted to give you a few of these to give you a dose of inspiration to try something new the next time you see your hair stylist.
