The Three Most Flattering Haircuts for Round Faces
Just like how we all know which dress or blouse silhouette flatters our body type more than others (an Empire waist? Not for everyone) we’ve come to realize that there are haircuts that flatter our face shape better than any one-size-fits-all hairstyle. When you have a round face, a softer jaw line and equal facial dimensions mean that your face is as long as it is wide and that the widest point of your face is the middle. You want to go with haircuts—no matter your preference in length, layers, or bangs—that help elongate the face rather than make it appear wider. For round faces, picking the right hairstyle can draw the focus onto your best facial features and frame your face in its most flattering way. (And who doesn’t want that?) Anything too blunt borders a fine line of accentuating the soft curve of the jawline, but confident touches like sporting a center part or framing heavily with layers add dimension and create the illusion of elongating the face. When in doubt, these three haircuts are the most flattering for round faces and aren’t just your basic one-length bob. If you’re in the market for a fresh and flattering cut, here are the three best hairstyles for round faces.
