Is it time for a new hairstyle? If you have been switching your part every day and trying to give yourself a new look, this may be a sign that you are ready for a new hairstyle. Whether you want to drastically change your look with flattering plus size haircuts or you need inspiration for new styles you can try every day, we have put together a guide that will help you decide. But what’s special about this guide is that we have created it for women who have fuller, round faces with shorter necks. Is this you? If you’re not sure, we have included some unique characteristics that you can use to identify whether or not your face shape is on the rounder size.
To make it easy, when we think of round face shapes, we think of stunning celebrities like Jordin Sparks, Miranda Kerr, Drew Barrymore, Queen Latifah, Olivia Munn, Mindy Kaling and more! And if you’re wondering whether or not you have a short or long neck, that largely depends on your height.
Characteristics of a Round Face
Does your face have one or more of the following attributes? If so, you can designate your face shape as being round!
- Your cheeks are the widest part of your face.
- You have a round jaw.
- Your face is shorter than most.
- The width and length of your face are very similar.
Hairstyles for Short Necks & Round Faces
Now that you have identified that you have a round face, let’s check out some of the hairstyles and haircuts that will go well with your figure and the cute plus size tunic tops you love to wear!
1. Middle Part
If you want a new style that’s easy and quick to achieve without going to a salon, try parting your hair down the middle. This style will contour your face shape — and the middle part is totally in right now.
2. Long, Blunt Bob
Love a daring and short chop? Next time you’re in the salon, ask your stylist for a long and blunt bob. This style will elongate your face and give you an edgy look that’s sexy and confidence-boosting. Once you have your new style, show it off with cute off-shoulder tops.
3. Long Hair with Bouncy Layers
Frame your face and make it the star of the show with bouncy layers. If you love your long hair, or you have been wanting some layers, this is a great style to accentuate your beautiful round face.
4. Loose Waves
If you like to curl or straighten your hair often, try something different with loose waves. These bouncy waves will make your hair look longer and give you a flattering look.
5. Short and Curly
If you have textured, short and curly hair, nourish your beautiful locks with some curl cream and go natural! This hairstyle looks amazing with your face shape!
6. Bantu Knots
Bantu knots are a great style for textured hair, and the style also looks incredible on rounder faces. The Bantu knots elongate and balance out your face for a flattering look.
7. Tapered, Thin Bangs
Every woman has gone through a phase in her life where she wanted bangs. For us, that phase occurs multiple times a year. If you have a round face, opt for thin and tapered bangs instead of a blunt chop. This will give your hair dimension and accentuate your face shape perfectly!
8. Cropped Pixie Cut
Is super-short hair your thing? Go for a bold look with a cropped pixie cut. This is a great way to accentuate your face shape, and you can have so much fun with this style!
9. Side-Swept Bangs
Whether your hair is long or short, side-swept bangs look so good on your face shape. Keep these bangs thin and tapered so that they aren’t too blunt.
10. Voluminous Low Bob
If you can’t already tell, bobs are very complementary to your round face! If you have thick hair, try getting a blowout and a bob for a flattering and extremely stylish look!
At Chic Soul, we believe that you should wear whatever you want and have whichever haircut you want to have! Your body is uniquely yours, and it should be cherished and loved!
