Bangs for Round Face: 7 Must-Try Styles for Pinays

Don't know how to style bangs for a round face shape? We'll teach you how.

Bangs for round faces can help give this face shape balance. Not to mention, bangs are super trendy, especially worn with Korean short hair. If you have a round face, you might be wondering what type of bangs would look good on you. Well, you’ve come to the right place!  Here are our recommended looks.

1. See-Through Bangs

You may have seen this type of bangs on your favorite Korean actresses and pop stars. This type of bangs rests across your forehead without entirely covering it—hence the term see-through. It is thinner than your regular full fringe, so this is a good choice if you’re gunning for a softer look.

Editor’s tip: Get smoother hair that’s easy to style with Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Shampoo. It even has five flower essences that help make your hair five times more fragrant! 

2. Curtain Bangs

Curtain bangs work on different face shapes, and that includes round. Instead of resting over your forehead, curtain bangs are positioned at the side, very much like how curtains frame a window. This type of fringe helps make your face shape less wide. If your bangs are also starting to grow long, you can style them this way to keep them from poking your eyes.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair frizz-free by using Dove Amino Restore 1 Minute Serum Conditioner. It has amino-infused serum capsules and moisture-balancing ingredients that go deep into your hair to treat frizz and dryness from within. 

3. Side-Swept Bangs

If you’re into asymmetrical looks, go for side-swept bangs. This type of fringe features a side part and bangs that are longer on one side. Give your side-swept bangs textured tips so they seamlessly transition to the rest of your hair.

4. Side-Swept Bangs and Pixie Cut

Whoever said that a pixie cut doesn’t suit a round face shape is seriously mistaken. Newsflash: anyone can wear a pixie cut. It’s just a matter of cutting and styling it in a way that flatters your face shape. For round faces, pair your pixie cut with long, side-swept bangs to help give the illusion of an elongated face shape.

5. Blunt Bangs and Chin-Length Bob

Love full bangs? Get one-length bangs that rest at eyebrow-level and a chin-length bob. The result is a fresh look with a dose of personality. Both your bangs and your bob work to give you a balanced face shape.

6. Wispy Bangs

It’s similar to blunt bangs but instead of looking super polished, wispy bangs look a bit messy and randomly styled. You can complement this type of fringe with a layered bob or lob so the layers can also frame your face.

7. Wispy Bangs with Headband

You can also wear a colorful headband together with wispy bangs. Get short hair as well for a fresh, summer look.

Now, you can pick the best style of bangs for round face! Which one is your favorite?
