Apart from looking for the trendiest haircuts of the season, the most important thing to keep in mind before getting a haircut is the shape of your face. A haircut that looks stunning on your BFF or your favourite blogger may not necessarily look great on you. The right haircut can frame your face while the wrong one will do just the opposite. Someone with a round face shape should avoid a full, round haircut as it will make their face look rounder.
Wondering which haircuts will flatter your round face shape? There’s no dearth of options TBH. Scroll down to see five stunning haircuts that will accentuate your best facial features.
01. Long waves

Long haircuts are often suggested to girls with round face shape as it draws attention down and balances the features of a broad face. Big, loose waves make the forehead look smaller and narrower. You can also add face-framing bangs to hide a wide forehead.
02. Shag haircut

The shag is 2020’s trendiest haircut and it looks great on those with a round face shape. This undone and messy looking haircut from the ’70s is quick to style and not too high-maintenance. Those with a round face shape should opt for a choppy look with bangs to take attention away from the jawline.
03. Side part wavy lob

Surprised by how many short haircuts you can sport? Well, don’t be because there’s a lob for every face shape. A wavy haircut will hide your fuller cheeks and highlight your best features like the eyes, nose and lips instead. Parting it at the side takes focus away from the forehead and softens the jawline too.
04. Voluminous lob

Contrary to popular belief, a short and voluminous haircut can flatter round face shape if you have naturally thick hair. A textured lob with face-framing waves that graze on your shoulders can make the face look longer. The thickness and volume on the crown also create an illusion of a longer face.

Another short haircut that looks great on a round face shape is the asymmetrical lob. The edgy cut and angles of this haircut flatter a round face and the longer part takes the focus away from the jawline. If you’re looking for a trendy and chic hairstyle for round face shape, this haircut won’t disappoint.
