Hairstyles for round face shape

If you have a round face, your face is nearly equal in length and width and has a soft, circular appearance. Your cheekbones are the widest part of your face, so the best hairstyles will minimize your prominent cheeks while elongating your face and making it appear more oval. To lengthen the face, women should choose hairstyles that have lots of volume on top, like textured pixie cuts. Men should opt for styles that add some angles to their soft faces, such as undercuts.

Glasses for round face shape

In order to contrast and de-emphasize the roundness of the face, you can try glasses with angular frames.
