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.

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

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

With pin-straight hair. a round face’s width is balanced out and looks less wide. You can achieve this by straightening your hair at home, by rebonding, or by getting a keratin blowout.

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
