Perfect Hairstyles for Round Faces

Round face

Is your face round? Are you having trouble picking out the perfect hairstyle that would complement your face? Don't worry, because you are not alone. Many women also share this dilemma of finding the best hairstyle that would suit their round visage.

A round face is generally as wide as it is long in the dimensional sense. The hairline in a round face is often wide, and the cheeks are usually full. This facial shape also sometimes makes the neck seem shorter.

There is no hard and fast rule to creating the perfect hairstyle suitable for round faces. Most hairstyles designed for the round face, however, aim to make the face appear thinner and longer. They are also meant to direct the eyes away from the fullness of the cheeks. A woman with a round face may want to consider these two things whenever she is trying to fix her hair in a more flattering manner.

There are a few things that you may want to try out whenever you are styling your hair or getting your hair done in a salon. You could opt for short hairstyles that add length to your face, or those with the sides cut short or close to the face. Layered bangs also give the illusion of length to the face and should be chosen rather than the straight or heavy bangs; heavy or straight bangs seem to squash the face rather than lengthen it. Curls are also good, although they should be kept away from the cheeks. A bob cut above the chin will look nice for women with double chins rounding off their already round faces, while cropped hair may seem best to make a short neck appear longer.

Round face A woman with a round face can also wear her hair long if she wants to. Long hair done in layers or in a shag looks good on a round face because it makes the face more slender. Long hair piled up on the head also makes the face look thinner. The same slenderizing effect can be achieved with the use of cleverly placed highlights, especially highlights near the face. Long curls with dangling tendrils also suit the round face quite nicely, as long as the tendrils do not fall near the cheeks or close to the face.

There are a lot of styles that a woman with a rounded face can choose for herself. It is a matter of being versatile. But the one true key to finding the perfect hairstyle for a woman with the round face not lies in following the rules or the guidelines, but in following whatever she feels comfortable with. She may follow all the rules and all the trends, but if she is not comfortable wearing it, or if the hairstyle doesn't suit her lifestyle, then the effort is lost.

What she could do to get the best hairstyle for herself is to browse through some magazines, pick out the ones she likes best, and to consult her hairstylist about it. In the end, the perfect hairstyle, whether your face is round or square or oval or whatever shape, is someone that a woman can wear confidently and have fun with.
