For many, it’s never easy to find a haircut to suits a round face. You may not even be 100 percent sure if your face shape is considered round. To figure out if you have a round face, take a look at your cheekbones. Ladies with round face shapes will have soft angles and their cheekbones will be the widest part of there face. If this sounds like you, then you most likely fall under this face shape! Curly girls may find it a bit more challenging, as they have to go for the cut that works well with the way their curls fall. If you’re currently on the hunt for curly haircuts for round faces, we found some haircuts that will elongate your face, highlight your round features, or if desired, contour it.
