The 11 Most Flattering Hairstyles for Round Faces

If you’ve got a round face, then you’d be forgiven for feeling like you can't do anything to flatter your shape. But there are certain hairstyles for round faces that will give you more definition while also making you look less cherub-like and more sophisticated. We spoke to Scott Ade, a stylist at Daniel Hersheson, who gave us some rules about finding a great hairstyle for a round face and how to lengthen the look of your face.

The trick here is to strike the perfect balance in the shape of the hair, as round face shapes are less suited to very sleek or very voluminous styling. A little height in the crown will elongate the face shape perfectly, and a side parting will also help to complement your shape. A good choice of style would be half-up, half-down; it allows for a little height, and the loose hair can be tonged to soften the look.”

But you don’t just want a rule. You also need some visual inspiration. To help, we’ve selected some of our favourite hairstyles and cuts from rounder-faced A-listers, who are not only beautiful, but also prove you can have any kind of hairstyle so long as you take note of the rules.
