As a stylist I get asked all the time: what type of haircut or hairstyle is best for my face shape? If you happen to fall in the circular face shape realm, this article is for you! A round face boasts slightly wider cheekbones but also has great symmetry.

Take a look at the following collection of hairstyles for round faces and learn to embrace the face shape you were born with – and make the most of it!
This shoulder length hairstyle is made interesting with cheekbone-grazing layers that flip out away from the face. Highlights are kept brightest around the face and fade into deeper tones towards the back of the head. This is an awesome example of how a medium length haircut can look stylish and chic.
1. Start with clean, dry hair and part to the side.
2. Use a 1 ½” sized curling iron to roll the bottom half of your hair (from the ears down) toward the neck to create that rolled-under effect.
3. Use the same curling iron to curl the top half section of hair away from the face, and flick the ends to create that slightly feathered and winged look.
This hairstyle is soft and touchable; you don’t want to use anything too sticky or strong. A great product to use is the Glossing Shine Mist from Fekkai. It’s super lightweight to keep your hair soft and bouncy, not greasy and weighed down.
This round face shape hairstyle works because the layers, the side part, and the length all help to add balance. Hair that is naturally on the straighter side is perfect for this style.
As with any cut, know yourself and your haircut preferences. Would long sweeping bangs around your eyes bother you? Then keep them long enough to tuck behind your ears or short enough that they won’t fall right in your face.
This short and shaggy bob has tons of edgy layers and is topped off with spiky bangs, and a deep crimson color plays up the texture. The length is extremely flattering for round faces because it cuts in right at the jawline.
