6 Easy Round Face Hairstyles to Wear at Home This Weekend

Easy styles you can whip together in no time flat.

There are tons of hairstyles out there that can define and accentuate your gorgeous round face shape. When looking for round face hairstyles, it’s important to keep angles in mind, opting for hairstyles that can both define and enhance your unique features. Round faces tend to do well with hairstyles that add extra angles and add more dimension to the face. Creating angles in your hair can be as simple as changing your part or adding subtle braids to your hair. Read on to check out six of our favorite round face hairstyles that you can try out this weekend.

1. Loosely Curled

Loose curls are easy and chic.

Time: 15 Minutes

Have a fun brunch to attend this weekend? We love how loose curls can both soften and define a round face. To achieve this look, use a larger barrel curling iron to create your curls. For looser curls, use larger sections of your hair and curl for a shorter length of time. This is great because it cuts the time it takes to curl hair. Finish your curls by combing through your hair with your fingers. You can add in a side part for an extra angular look.

2. Deep Side Part
