Top 10 Cuts For A Round Face

Nothing can make you feel better than a fresh new haircut. On the other hand, nothing can make you feel worse than spending money on a haircut that does not fit with your face, as that can have a negative effect on your entire look. If you have a round face, you have lots of styles from which to choose. Here are some of the best.


Long, Straight Hair

This hairstyle is one of the easiest to accomplish, which is great, because it is perfect for people with round faces. If you do not like spending money to get your hair cut several times a year, then this is the style for you. All you need to do is keep your hair long and straight. There is no need to do anything more to fuss with it in the morning. All you need to do is brush it and go. It is perfect for round faces because it adds the illusion of length to the face, which can also help to thin-out a chubbier round face.


The Classic Bob

Ladies with round faces can never go wrong with a classic bob cut, especially one that falls just to the chin. Add some wispy bangs or highlights for some added dimension and personality. If you want to take it up a notch, go with an asymmetrical bob, instead.


Shoulder-Length Styles

Any shoulder-length style is good for a round face. To be honest, they’re great for any shape face. If you have a natural wave or curl to your hair, cut it in layers to avoid weighing it down.


Short hair with long layers

Although this style does not seem possible when you first think about it, you will be amazed at how great it looks. Although ultimately your hair will be quite short, the hair closest to your face retains some length that you can style however you please. No matter what you choose, this cut will look modern and chic with the perfect amount of femininity.


Short and cropped

If you have a round face that needs to be thinned out a bit, this cut may be perfect for you. This wash-and-go style sits close to your head and does a great job of slimming a face.



A short or medium-length A-line cut is another great choice to compliment a round face.  The classic longer front layers helps to slim the face and provides a look the simply exudes class.



Round faces are often welcoming for women who like to wear bangs. Whether you like your bangs to be short and blunt, wispy, or totally messy, your round face will easily take to any style of bangs you want to try.



If you are going out on the town or dressing up to go a wedding, you want your hair to reflect the formality of the event. You can achieve the look you want with an  up-do. Fasten your hair at the nape of your neck and twist it into a low bun for a look that just screams sophistication. If you want to try some diversity in your up-do, you can always make a top-knot as well. They are perfect for ladies with round faces.



If you have a round face and curly hair, make sure you keep your curls up near the crown of your head rather than closer to your cheeks. That way, you can create height, which will thin out your face. Also, if you go with a curly style, be sure to keep the sides of your hair short.


Long Graduated Shag

If you like to keep your hair long, but don’t want to go for the stick-straight look, then try a long graduated shag instead. The long layers will thin out your face and accentuate your natural features.
