Our Fave Filipino Hairstyles for Round Faces
1. The Lob
Medium length haircuts look fabulous on just about anyone, and that includes girls with round faces. A lob helps accentuate the angles near your jawline, adding a bit of sharpness to your look.
2. Chin-Length Bob with Bangs
Style your bob in a way that your hair covers your ears to help balance out your face’s width. You can also add bangs to frame your face. Blunt bangs together with a chin-length bob give you a Korean-style ‘do.
3. Loose Waves
A tousled hairstyle helps add dimension and movement to your hair. All these help in framing a round face and giving it a more balanced shape.
Editor’s tip: Start with smooth and manageable hair by washing it with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth KERA10 Shampoo. It has KERA10 Protein Complex that goes up to 10 layers deep into your hair. It also gives your hair 10 salon benefits in one wash, and these include making your hair smooth, soft, and shiny, and calming frizz and flyaways.
4. Long Hair With Side-Swept Bangs
Side-swept bangs offer a softer way to frame your round face. They help minimize your face’s width, and they blend with the rest of your hair more seamlessly than full, blunt bangs. Side-swept bangs are also easy to maintain, and you can cut them yourself!
5. Pixie Cut With Side-Swept Bangs
Yes, you can go short! You just have to be strategic. Maintain a side part then style the longer side as your side-swept bangs. Scrunch your hair a bit for added volume, which will help you achieve a more balanced face shape.
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.
Editor’s tip: Keep your hair from getting dry and dull by using Cream Silk Rich Organic Powerfusion Rich Moisture Conditioner. This nature-powered conditioner has shea butter and coconut oil that deliver moisture to your hair. It also has various flora oils and extracts to smoothen and nourish your hair.
7. 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.
8. Top Bun
Who says you can’t put your hair up if you have a round face? This top knot adds height and helps elongate your face shape. To create this hairstyle, just gather your hair on your crown, tie it into a ponytail, and form a bun. You can loosen a few strands for a more relaxed, messy-chic look.
9. Long Side Bangs
Unlike curtain bangs, side bangs don’t form a drape over your forehead. They just fall casually to the sides and blend with the rest of your hair. Nevertheless, they help just as well in creating a flattering hairstyle for round faces.m
10. Long Straight Hair
Editor’s tip: Use Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Straight Ultra Conditioner to maintain sleek and smooth hair. It has keratin relaxers that tame frizz, keratin serum that revives damaged strands, and keratin essence that restores shine to dull 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. Long and Center-Parted Waves
Long hair that falls by your cheeks helps elongate your face. Add curls or waves for some bounce and movement.
13. 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.
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 1 Minute Serum Conditioner. It has serum capsules that contain argan, coconut, almond, and sunflower seed oils. They go deep into your hair to treat dryness and nourish it from within.
16. Space Buns
Want a quirky updo? Create two high pigtails and form two buns on each side of your head. Put the buns high on each side to add height to your ‘do.
17. Clips on One Side
18. Bob With Headband
Aside from being chic, this hairstyle is a practical choice when you want to keep strands off your face. You can also get a headscarf, fold it until it’s about an inch wide, then tie it around your head. So easy!
19. Bob With Sparse Bangs
Sparse bangs are thin, wispy bangs that sit on your forehead without covering it. They help soften your look and they also frame your face and help give it balance. Wear it with a sleek and smooth bob, and the result is a polished hairstyle for round faces.
20. Ponytail With Bobby Pins
Parting your hair on the side can give the illusion of a less wide face, so we recommend doing it before tying your hair into a ponytail just above your nape. Then, jazz up your simple hairstyle by adding metalling bobby pins on one side of your hair.
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!
