We’ve been having a lot of face shape talk here at All Things Hair and truly believe that a haircut can make or break your look. With a round face that tends to have full cheeks and a symmetrical shape, you’re probably either looking for a haircut that accentuates your perfectly round features, or contours it just a bit. Whatever you’re after, we have plenty of easy-to-style haircuts below to choose from. Let’s face it: There’s nothing worse than getting a haircut you can’t seem to maintain on your own at home. Read on as we unfold our favorite medium haircuts for round faces:
