Hairstyles For a Circle Face Shape

Celebrities with round faces rely on heavily-layered hair to balance their jawline proportions. Chippy layers, like those seen in Octavia Spencer’s Wolf haircut, add texture and lengthen the face.

Pixie with Long Bangs

The pixie hairstyle with long bangs is timeless for any style or occasion. It is especially suitable for women with thin locks, as it adds volume. Pairing it with dark tones can also enhance the complexion. Style it casually with loose waves or a messy ponytail. For a confident look, try a piecey pixie with face-framing bangs. Use volumizing mousse and molding gel for added volume and finish with Aveda Brilliant Spray-On Shine.

Bob with Side Fringe

A bob with long side-swept bangs is an elegant style that can slim a round face—the cropped cut features long layers and a subtle fringe that softens its edgy appearance. The length hits just above the chin, lengthening and slimming the face. Emphasize your cheekbones and jawline with face-framing tendrils. This style works well on all hair types and looks stylish with two-toned blonde hues.

Inverted Bob

The long layered inverted bob, also known as the lob haircut, is a modern style with an unstructured look. It features long layers at the front and back, making it perfect for trying bold new colors or keeping your style current. The inverted shape of the bob is suitable for most face shapes, but it particularly complements heart-shaped faces. Choppy layers add volume and height while remaining manageable—thin hair benefits from the shorter back layers, creating more book at the crown area.

Medium Long Haircut

Try a blunt-cut lob with curtain bangs for an elegant and chic look that highlights your round face shape. This hairstyle can be styled up for formal events or down for casual vibes. It also adds some edge to your appearance. Layered fringes, such as full or feathered side fringes, work well with round faces by framing and lifting cheekbones or slimming the face. Tonged curls can add great definition and length strategically.

A medium-length haircut with a fade is ideal for circle face shapes. This style, with skin-tight sides and back, pairs nicely with a well-kept beard for an aesthetic and professional appearance.
