Ever since I was about ten years old, I’ve been a huge fan of wearing my hair short. The longest it’s gotten since then is somewhere around my chest, and I usually get tired of it before then and chop it back around my chin. The thing with short to medium length hair, though, is that you can get a bad cut or style a lot more easily than with long hair. One of the most important things is knowing your face shape and what will work for you. Today, I’m going to focus on short hairstyles for round faces.
If you don’t know what face shape you have, take a look at this basic outline to figure it out. If you determine that your face is round, keep reading! The key to styling hair for a round face is to make sure that you lengthen your face, rather than cutting it short. If you go for bangs, opt for a piecey cut rather than something blunt or straight. If you have layers (especially curls!) make sure that they don’t fall right at your cheekbones.
I’m going to go through the shortest possible pixie cut all the way to a long bob (which is venturing into the realm of medium length hair). There are, of course, plenty of beautiful long hairstyles for round faces as well, but the focus here is the short ones.
So there you have it! There are so many cool, flattering short hairstyles to try with a round face – don’t be afraid to go for it! Some of these styles will work for you even if you don’t have a round face, though they’re obviously geared toward that audience. I personally have more of a square face, but I’ve still worn the modern pixie and a pseudo-flapper bob in my time.
Are you currently rocking a short hairstyle with a round face? Are you toying with the idea of chopping it all off? Is there a particular look you’ve been dying to try? Have any of these worked well (or not-so-well) for you? Sound off in the comments to let us know!
