Short Hair for a Round Face

A round face is so called because it has rounded hairline as well as a rounded chin line. It is also wide across the cheekbones creating an almost circular shape. You donít have to be over weight to have a round shaped face. It may be your bone structure that produces the shape. With this face shape, it is best to choose hairstyles that create an illusion of length in the face. You will want some height on the top, close at the sides and bangs brushed to the side. Longer hair helps to take away from the round shape. However, you may want to wear your hair short.

Short hairstyles can be trimmed into a shape that will appear to change the face shape. Short hair can be very stylish as well as easy to care for. The back neckline of your style may be kept very short or left with about an inch of length. This is often very attractive but should be left fringy rather than blunt, keeping it close in the nape area. Keep your style close at the sides. If you cut it short around the ears, make sure it is soft and fringy at the edge. A side part will have the effect of adding length to the face. Height in the crown adds to that effect.

This style is extremely easy to care for. It is a typical short style with short back and sides that are cut up and over the ears. The trendy asymmetrical bang that is angled to one side helps to cause any face shape to appear more narrow. The bang is layered short on top gradually getting longer until it reaches below cheekbone length. To finish this look, use styling gel or styling foam for body and dry the bang area over to one side. When it is dry, you may tuck it behind one ear or use hairspray to keep it to the side.

This short, layered wedge also features asymmetrical lines in the front hairline. The bangs are trimmed very short on one side and longer on the other. This line creates the illusion of length in the face shape. Finish this style by using pomade or hair wax to create texture. Apply the product to the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and then run your hands through your hair using a scrubbing motion until the texture and fullness is formed.

If you prefer more length in your short hair, this shag is easy to care for and helps to create length in a round face shape. The style is extensively texturized throughout. Hair wax or pomade is used to create body and texture. The shorter top and length in the back creates the illusion of a longer, more narrow face shape.
