Lengthen your face shape!
Hairstyles for round faces
There are many different hairstyles for round faces. In addition to the shape of your face, you should also consider the natural texture, thickness and other properties of your hair. Read on to find some of the best long and short hairstyles for round faces.
Long bob / praise
A long bob (lob for short) is not only a versatile and trendy look, it is also easy to adapt to your natural hair structure. Wear it straight, with waves or curls. All variations are equally flattering. The lob is a great haircut for round faces because it has a lengthening effect and the ability to incorporate a side parting or bangs.

Side parted bangs
A pony is usually a no-go for round faces. Typically, it shortens the face and can make it appear wider, which means that already wide faces appear somewhat disproportionate. An exception is the side-run bangs. Emma Stone is a great example of a celebrity successfully sporting a side haircut for a round face.
However, try to avoid too short or blunt bangs. You want to lengthen your face.

Long, straight and sleek hair
An effective and stylish hairstyle for round faces is this one that is cut long and straight. This one is simple and yet sexy: the long, straight hair frames the face without exaggerating the round shape.

Middle parting with soft waves
A center parting is a simple trick to make a round face appear longer. The soft waves continue to help guide your gaze downward, which in turn stretches a round face.
Soft waves are always a good idea, right??
The pixie may seem like a slightly off-putting short haircut for round faces, but believe us, it looks amazing! The short haircut helps accentuate the fresh and youthful look of round faces while still leaving plenty of room for variation. For example, an asymmetrical cut can help distract from the wider areas of your face and focus attention on your eyes.
A short haircut is daring, but round faces can rock this look too!
Beach waves are a popular style for round faces. These curls give the illusion of length while large, glamorous curls create the illusion of width.
Drew Barrymore, known for her lovely round face, often chooses this hairstyle to create a chic look.

Hairstyles for round faces – basic tips and possible mistakes
- Make an effort to make your face look longer. Add height to your hair – not volume! Updos and long hairstyles are a suitable option.
- Pull your eyes down. Long tiered hairstyles create an optical illusion for length.
- Rely on waves. Big, voluminous curls only make a round face wider.
This is how you create an optical illusion
Possible mistakes you can make:
- A ponytail only accentuates a round face even more.
- Avoid short or blunt bangs. Instead, opt for tiered and side pony sections.
- No volume on the top of the head. If you choose to go for a short hairstyle, add volume to the top of the vertex.
Short hairstyles are also suitable for ladies with round faces. Be careful with this, however!
Is a pony good for a round face??
Straight, blunt bangs can accentuate the width of your face and make it appear rounder. A hairstyle that creates height and lengthens your face is a better option.

Side bangs will lengthen your face. Just stay away from stringy, rounded, or long, straight bangs, especially if you have a small forehead.
