Round Face & Medium Hair: Hairstyling Tips
Round faces are adorned with a soft jawline and symmetrical dimensions. The broadest area on a round face is the middle region. Let’s look at some hairstyling tips for medium hair that will flatter your softly-etched round face.
What to Avoid For a Round Face and Medium Hair
Your main objective is to balance out your circular face shape and try to give it the illusion of a longer, more oval-like shape. To do this, you need to avoid getting a short bob. It’ll only make your face look rounder.
You should also avoid getting too many layers since they’ll soften your already soft face shape.
If that’s the case, you might think of keeping your hair all at the same length, but that’ll also cause the same effect and make your face appear even rounder. Same-length hair is too angular and won’t give you the contrast you’re going for.
Tips to Flatter Your Round Face
You’re trying to look for hairstyles to elongate your face shape. Soft, long layers below your jawline will lengthen your round face.
You can always couple your hairstyles with a side part. You can also opt for an angular fringe and add a bit of height near the top of your head, giving the illusion of a longer face.
If you’re not a fan of layering, you can give your hair a thicker and fuller look with a blunt cut and minimal layering.
What you’re trying to do is add more volume to draw away attention from your spherical face shape. Don’t be afraid to add texture. You can consider adding some beachy waves or go full out and add some curls.
We recommend using a mousse on your hair and blow-drying it afterward with a round brush. It’ll give you the sultry voluminous look that everyone’s after.
Opt for a Middle-Part
Mila Kunis’ most coveted straight, middle-part hairstyle works well on her round face due to a slight lift in the top. While it’s subtle, it draws just enough attention away from her round face shape.
In most cases for round faces, a middle part would work best. It’ll give your face some symmetry and frame it nicely.
Whether you prefer a sleek look or want some big wavy hair, we’re sure you’ll rock your hairstyle both ways.
Looking For An Updo Hairstyle?
Whether you’re going to a black-tie event or the gym, you probably want to either showcase your make-up-clad face or keep your hair away from your face.
For a simple and elegant look, we recommend a low messy bun. You can keep it at a side or middle part. Make sure to get a few wisps of your hair out to gently frame your face.
Not sure whether to keep your hair up or down? How about a half updo? Not only will it make your face appear longer, but it’ll also make for the easiest, go-to hairstyle. Like the messy bun, pull out some tendrils to surround your face.
