15 Filipino Hairstyles for Round Faces

Check out these cute hairstyles and haircuts for round faces that perfectly complement your features!

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
