Do You Actually Have Round Face or Not?
Have you ever wondered if your face is round or not? Well, there are many ways for people to tell. The first thing that should be measured when checking this out would have something about the shape of one’s cheekbones and jawline (the widest part). If all three points match up perfectly around an identical margin, then probably yes- you do possess a rounder-looking countenance!
The Best Type of Hairstyles for Round Faces
Fortunately, many different hairstyles can be worn to highlight your round face. We’ve listed out some of the best ones for you here!
- Go for layered bangs instead of straight bangs. Not only would it help to add volume, but they can cover your cheeks in a very fashionable manner.
- Go for short or medium hairstyles because they will help to add more height to your overall appearance instead of long hairstyles. And on longer hairstyles, shaggy or layered styles look better than sleek and straight styles.
- You can also choose any type of hairstyle that has the sides of the hair hanging close to the face, thereby covering a part of it without making your cheeks look too visible.
- With shorter hairstyles, aim for a blunt cut at the area around the chin so that it accentuates the round aspect of your face instead of trying to hide it.
Tips for Round Faces
- The most important thing to consider is the exact shape in which you need to style your hair.
- Do not go for sleek or voluminous hairstyles as they will make you look less attractive.
- Top knots and buns are good hairstyles for round faces as they help to add height to the crown section of your hair, which in turn makes it look longer.
- The soft wavy look is also preferred for round faces as soft curls accentuate your roundness while tighter curls make it look unattractive.
Now that we have enough tips and tricks with us on the best way to style round faces, let us move on to the different hairstyles that you need to check out.
