Long Hairstyles for Round Faces

Long hair is the way forward for you round faced ladies! Long hair naturally helps lengthen a round face shape and if styles straight will add definition to cheek bones and give you a slimmer appearance. Adding layers or tapered ends will help to soften the face and add distinction.

If you’ve got the time keep longer locks sleek and smooth for a sexy style. Keeping hair super shiny and sleek is mainly down to how you blow dry your hair, ever noticed how when you walk out of a salon your hair stays so much smoother for longer? The tip is to point the nozzle of the hair dryer down smoothing the hair follicles and creating shine. It can be a bit tricky to get the hang of it at first but its well worth learning to keep frizzy hair a thing of the past!

If your hair is a block colour why not add some highlights or low lights, these will frame the face and can also break up a style to create a narrower appearance.

For you ladies who are busy, busy, busy! But still want those feminine long locks you must keep on top of split ends. A regular visit to the hair salon to get rid of those damaged, tired ends will make all the difference when you just don’t have the time in the morning to style your hair.

If you want long hair, make sure you grow it and then keep it a minimum of a few inches below the jawline. It may take time but stick with it and you will have hair that flatters your face superbly. If you get bored and just feel like it’s at a stage where you hate it and want to cut it all of (like many of us trying to grow hair do) then experimenting with a new colour, adding layers or perhaps a fringe can create a new look without taking any length off the hair.

Styles the Round Shaped Faces should Avoid

There are a few simple hairstyle rules for round faces when it comes to what needs to be avoided.

  • Stay away from hairstyles that end chin length
  • Chunky, heavy bangs are a no no and only add weight to a round face.
  • Curls, the tighter the curl the more you stay away
  • Lastly medium length styles including bobs!

These cuts will either exaggerate the roundness of your jaw or exaggerate the width to your face. At all costs you must avoid hair that is exactly chin length, this length should only be worn by women with long faces.
