If you have a round face, you need to think carefully about the type of hairstyle you choose. You have to be careful in choosing hairstyles because not all hairstyles will flatter your face, some will show all your facial flaws.
One of the worst hairstyles to wear with a round face is that all of your hair is pulled back into a ponytail. By straightening all your hair in a ponytail, you will highlight all your face flaws. The reason is that everything is removed from your face, leaving your face open and easily visible.
Short hairstyles are also something to avoid, especially with bobs. The only exception to the bob is the long bob. Short hairstyles should be avoided as they can make your face even rounder than it is. Bobs should also be avoided as they often have a length that should be avoided for round faces.

Jaw movements should be skipped, especially if you have a short neck with a round face. You want to avoid this cut style as it adds width to the sides of your face. By adding width to the sides of your face, you make your face appear wider and rounder, which is not flattering to anyone. Other blunt cuts should be avoided for the same reasons; you don't want anything too drastic.
Curly hair is also tough with round faces, but if you have naturally curly hair, there isn't much you can do. With curly hair you want to avoid cutting them in a single length because as it grows it can take on a triangle shape as the lower poufs start from the top. Curly hair adds width to the sides of the face, just like blunt cuts do. If you have curly hair, you need to take the necessary steps to make the curls looser so that your face does not appear wide.
While long hair looks great on people with round faces, long straight hair won't be all that flattering. If you decide to grow your hair long and straight, add some body to your hair. To add body, you can cut layers in your hair or add curls with a curling iron.
