If you have a round face or tend to carry excess weight in your cheeks, you aren’t alone: there are many women just like you who are itching for the chance to give their faces a slimmer appearance. Today, Lionesse is going to tell you about a few different hairstyles which would help in this regard, and look fabulous to boot.
Curly Shoulder Length or Longer Hair
Curls are the perfect addition for those with a rounded face looking to appear as though their face is slimmer. Curls can be attained through use of a curling iron, flat iron, hot rollers, or pin curls, or you can make a more permanent decision and opt for a perm. Curls give the face a softened look and feel, and provide volume to the sides of the face, making the face appear slimmer and smaller. It takes the attention away from the face and puts it on your hair, which is where any woman wants the attention to go in the first place.
Layers and Highlights
Layers give dimension to the hair and take away attention from the face, as do side swept bangs. Opt for some highlights for depth, and this will also take the attention off the cheeks in turn. This look will give your face the appearance that it is much slimmer than it actually is. You can incorporate lots of layers of various lengths into your style to really get a look that’s stylish and sexy – and for once, a look you can be proud of showing off, without the fear that someone might think you look overweight.
Long and Angled
Choosing a longer hairstyle and choosing not to go overboard with chopping off the length is important for you to maintain the illusion of a longer, slimmed out face. Adding in angles provides dimension to the hair, and detracts further away from the face. Choosing this style with a side or zigzag part will not only look beautiful and trendy, but it will help to give your face a more elongated, thinner look.
For those who would rather have shorter locks, a tapered bob can provide dimension, thickness, and the perfect style to the hair. Anytime angles are incorporated into the front of the hair, it helps the face to appear more slim and elongated. Choose some side swiped bangs to hide the appearance of a larger forehead, and help the face to appear slimmer.
As a tip, those with very round faces should never opt for flat ironed styles or completely flat hair. What this does is it actually makes the face appear even larger than it already does – and that’s never a good look for anybody looking to downsize the appearance of their facial structure. Opt for soft waves or curls – which is why a perm or wearing a waved style on a regular basis is a good idea for you ladies faced with rounded or larger faces.
