You work out, you even do those funny face-yoga excercises. You contour your cheeks to within an inch of their lives. You do everything you can to make your face look sleeker and more streamlined. Is this you? Well, then, we have one more trick you can try to make your face look a whole lot slimmer. Have you tried a hairstyle that will take away the roundness and add length to your features? Not yet? What are you waiting for?
The general rule is to have as much volume and body as possible in your hair. Stay away from sleek, straight hairstyles.
- Volume at the crown
- Soft, face-framing strands
- Layered hair with curtain bangs
- Curls, big, bouncy curls
Volume at the crown
Any hairstyle with teased back hair at the crown will add length to your face. Whether it is a half-up, half-down hairstyle or a ponytail, back comb and create volume at the crown.
A side swept fringe will hide some part of your forehead and give the illusion of a smaller face.
Soft, face-framing strands
Whether you want your hair in a ponytail, bun or top knot, leave a section of hair in the front, part it in the middle and leave the strands loose to frame your face.
Layered hair with curtain bangs
A thick fringe of bangs will draw focus to your eyes and the layers will frame your face from the sides.
Curls, big, bouncy curls
Curling your hair will attract attention to your big, voluminous hair around your face and balance it.
