Round Face shape hairstyles

If your face is round, a short bob will complement your jawline. Emma Corrin looks stunning in a sleek, center-parted bob that accentuates her beautiful blue eyes.


Short Bob

Elizabeth Olsen usually wears her bronde hair long, and we love this particular hairstyle. Her layers and feathered bangs frame her face and highlight her cheekbones.

Long Layers with a Fringe


If you don't think you can pull off a classic bob, a shoulder-length version may be more flattering. With blunt ends and a pushed-back part, you have a timeless, feminine style.

Long Bob


If our hairstyles teach you anything, it's that layers are essential for a round face. They accentuate an angular jawline rather than a rounded one.

Face-framing Layers on a Medium Cut


A couple of inches shorter will add detail to your ends and bring your look down.

Sleek Long Layers


Adding interest to the sides of your hair can give the illusion of angles on a round face, so we recommend bouncy, sweeping curls to draw attention away from your cheeks.

Beautiful Bouncy Curls


It creates a diagonal line across the face, breaking up naturally rounded features. It's mostly science.

Side Fringe
with Half-up Hair


With a modern twist on the rock ‘n' roll retro shag. For round faces, intense layers with soft textured ends add interest to the crown and lengthen the face.

Choppy Shag Haircut


Straight across bangs can be too heavy for round faces, as they completely hide the brow. Split bangs (think Brigitte Bardot) add detail without shortening the face.

Waves with a Split Fringe


Instead of parting to one side like Selena, avoid perfectly centred partings. This will add length and break up some of the symmetry.

Sweeping Side
Fringe with Soft Curls


Like Emma Stone, add subtle layers all around to add texture and volume, so that whether you add soft waves or blowdry it straight, there's still movement in the hair.

Cut and Subtle Layers


Short hairstyles and round faces are a tricky mix. Both Ginnifer Goodwin and Michelle Williams are perfect examples of how this style works with round faces.

Tapered Pixie
with Lots of Texture


Traditionally, round-faced women favoured long hair. Why not add layered bangs? Longer side pieces slim the jawline while framing high cheekbones.

Long Hair with Full, Curved Bangs


A middle parting can also help lengthen a round face. Great news: it works with almost any hair length, except super short.

Beachy Textures


Yes, when softly swept to one side as seen on Kirsten Dunst, they can help define high cheekbones while also slimming the face.

Long Bob with Side-swept Bangs


A deep side parting can help change the focal point of your face, making it more heart-shaped rather than round.

Long Hair with a Deep Side Parting


Thought round-faced ladies couldn't wear bangs? Rethink. A playful side-swept fringe can work wonders for spherical face shapes, as Kirsten Dunst shows.

Long Hair with a Vintage side-swept Fringe


This clever fringe-cutting trick is great for those who like to sweep their hair up into a bun or a ponytail.
