If you have a round face, choosing haircuts and hairstyles is probably always quite frustrating for you. Unlike oval faced gals who can pull off basically anything, those with plump cheeks and circular faces often look for hairstyles and haircuts that will give them a more balanced face shape. But while it’s not easy to find the perfect hairstyles and haircuts for round faces, it’s not impossible. Scroll through for some examples of Filipino hairstyles for round faces.
Filipino Hairstyles for Round Faces: Flattering Hairstyles
1. The Lob
Medium length haircuts look fabulous on just about anyone, and that includes girls with round faces. A lob, with volume at the ends, helps accentuate the angles near your jawline, adding a bit of sharpness to your look.
Editor’s tip: Add oomph to your lob by washing it with Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Shampoo and Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Conditioner. A flat lob won’t do anything for your round face so you need to make it a bit poofy, especially at the ends. This duo nourishes your locks and gives your lob the natural bounce and volume it needs.
2. Bob + Choppy Bangs
To make a bob work for you, avoid smooth rounded cuts and go for textured, tousled looks instead. Add choppy bangs to level up on style and help with diffusing the roundness of your face. The unevenness of your fringe tones down the roundness by making your face appear longer.
3. Loose Waves and Layers
Subtle waves that curl away from your face add dimension to your locks while wispy layers add volume, shape, and movement. Put them together and you’ll get the effect that you want: elongated features and accentuated cheekbones. When you get a haircut, ask your stylist to give you soft, face-framing layers that start slightly past the chin. Then, add beach waves to give your hairstyle more flair.
4. Side-Swept Bangs
Yes, bangs made it to our list of Filipino hairstyles for round faces. Choose asymmetrical or side-swept bangs to help minimize your face width. Side-swept bangs are also easy to maintain, and you can cut them yourself!
5. Tousled Pixie
Yes, you can go short! You just have to be strategic. Make sure there’s a lot of volume on top, with sides cut shorter, to give the illusion that your face is longer.
Editor’s tip: Add volume to your pixie cut by applying VO5 Extra Body Mousse to your hair. Then, blow-dry and scrunch your hair to get that tousled look.
6. Curtain Bangs
If you want a symmetrical look with your fringe, curtain bangs can help you achieve that. They stay at the sides and help make your face look less round. You can even make your curtain bangs look wispy for a more relaxed vibe.
7. Long and Center-Parted Waves
Long hair that falls to the front helps elongate your face. Do this on your straight or wavy hair, and see how flattering it looks for your round face.
8. Long Side Bangs
Are your bangs already too long? Part your hair at the center and put your long bangs to the sides. This type of fringe makes your face look long rather than wide. Plus, it makes your look bouncy.
9. Medium-Length Layered Waves
Layered hair creates texture, which in turn disguises a round face. And if your hair is wavy, the more it shows the layers, which can frame your round face beautifully. Finger-comb your hair to achieve a relaxed and messy look.
10. Long Straight Hair
11. Beach Waves with Bangs
It’s time to change your views about waves and curls adding width to your face. Remember, beach waves are just loose waves and not tight curls, which means they fall subtly around your shoulders. Plus, if you add fringe that goes beyond the eyebrow level, the eyes’ focus now moves in a vertical direction that helps create a slimmer face.
12. Crimped Hair
Long, mermaid-like curls or crimped hair also flatters a round face shape. This look is a great break from sleek and straight hairstyles. Crimping also adds texture and volume to thin hair, so you can do this to add body to your flat hair.
13. Boxer Braid
You don’t always have to cove portions of your round face shape to give it balance. You can do it as well with a boxer braid. With a center part and two braids on the sides, you get to showcase a proportioned round face shape instead of merely a wide-looking one.
14. Side Low Ponytail
Flatter your face shape with this side low ponytail. To create this hairstyle, just gather your hair on one side. Then, tie it and spritz hairspray to make it smooth and polished. It’s a quick and easy hairstyle that suits your round face shape!
Editor’s tip: Finish your side ponytail with a few spritzes of TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray. It smoothens frizz and flyaways without leaving a sticky residue on your hair.
15. Short Curly Hair
If you want a short hairstyle for your round face, try a curly bob. The volume of the curls takes attention away from the width of your face. When you have short hair curls, make sure to keep them moisturized to avoid frizz.
Editor’s tip: Wash your curly hair with Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo and Dove Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner. This duo moisturizes and tames unruly hair, thanks to its Advanced Nutri-Oils. It also helps keep frizz under control, which is a must in our humid climate.
Now, you have all these ideas to help you choose the best Filipino hairstyle for round faces. Which of these do you love most? Once you’ve picked, go ahead and rock your look!
