Face shapes:

Round

If this is your shape you should go ahead and create the illusion of length. Don’t cut your hair at he height of your cheeks, or below your ears because it will make your face look bulky. Ideas to balance the roundness and add some sophistication to your look: 

  • Side-swept long hair

Preferably straight and long hair lengthens your face up automatically. Opt for a down-the-middle or deep side parting to make your face look longer.

  • Long layered hairstyle

Try asymmetrical layers if you think that your long hair is boring and even shapeless. Make sure your layers end at some specific points of your face (cheekbones, chin, etc) to visually reduce the roundness of your face.
