There are common misconceptions out there surrounding haircuts for people with a round face. Possibly the biggest lie is that a round face will only suit one or two different hairstyles. Wrong. In fact, that couldn’t be more wrong if it was listed under the word in the dictionary. Round faces are incredibly feminine and can actually pull off anything from a pixie cut to a shag cut. All you need is to find the right hairdresser; one who can look at your rounded face and know how to make your dream cut look amazing on you.


1. Classic Pixie Cut

All those people who have ever said pixie cuts don’t work on round faces need to have their eyes checked. Having short hair is not going to make your face look wider. Period. The pixie is classic and stunning. Also, contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to have a face like Edie Sedgwick or Twiggy to rock one. A textured pixie cut done by the right stylist can make it look like you were been born to wear one. What this tends to require -- if you have a rounder face -- is some extra height on the top of the cut. Layers that add some choppy height to the mix actually elongates your face by drawing attention to your forehead. Furthermore, the styling possibilities are endless!
