A few changes are all that it needs to rock a hairstyle like pixie cut. Here’s the simplest, best 10 hairstyle tips for ladies with round faces.
- Mix Layers
Take a cue from Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and frame your face with mix-matched layers. Some layers could be short, some medium and some long; it should give your hair a textured choppy effect. The only thing you have to make sure is that the shortest layers fall at chin length and never above your earlobe

Round faces look great with bob hair-cut. A chin length bob is the best option for they mask the chubby sides and draw attention to the cheekbones. If you have wavy hair, it is all the more better. Ladies with straight hair need not fret, check out the next tip
- Tapered Bob
As we said, bob hairstyles look great on round faces. Tatyana Ali gave her straight hair an edgy tapered bob that looked absolutely amazing! But if you’re not in the mood for something as edgy, you could make the front layers more symmetrical and add uneven layers
- Messy Hair
Messy hairstyle is one of our favourite trends. Not only are they quick and easy to create, they look relaxed and fashionable with a certain I-don’t-care attitude. That’s good news for girls with round faces. Be it a bun, a ponytail or hair simply worn down, messy hair is your new best friend
- Side Swept Bangs
Most stylists will recommend bangs for a different, more sophisticated look, especially if you have a long forehead. Instead of the blunt bangs, go for longer side swept bangs that hit around the cheekbones. Cameron Diaz always uses this trick. It breaks the roundness of the face and creates a good angle, drawing the main focus to your eyes. Side swept bangs works its little magic be it long hair, short, medium or tied-up, even for a pixie cut like Ginnifer Goodwin
- Side Partings
Middle partings, as classy as they look, have the drawback of pulling attention to one’s cheekbones. This could be bad if you are trying slim down your round face. Instead try a side parting, even slightly off the middle could work wonders
- Long Hair
Mila Kunis is a fabulous inspiration for ladies with round faces. Here, she has opted for two difficult choices – middle parting and straight hair but she made it work to her advantage. How? By using the front layers to create a good frame for her face, it created an illusion of a slimmer face. Try not to tuck your hair behind your ears, if you have to, just tuck one side behind the ears and let the other side frame your face
- High Topknot
Is elegant and sophisticated more to your liking? A neat bun will lend a graceful look. For girls with round face, pile your hair on top of your head to create a high top-knot. Watch how it instantly creates an illusion of a longer face. You could take a cue from the young stylish celeb, Sarah Hyland
- Sleek Ponytail
Selena Golmez’s sleek ponytail draws away attention from her chubby face and instead pulls the focus to her beautiful eyes. The trick is to go for a sleek high ponytail.

If you are not comfortable with a messy hairstyle, don’t go for it just because it looks good. You’re going to end up looking uncomfortable. Why not choose a style that suits your personal taste? Perhaps like a sleek ponytail. Feel good, have fun!
