15. The Man Bun
Last, but certainly not least is the man bun. We are firm believers that this style works for any face shape. It’s all about finding the right shape and size of bun for you.
Try incorporating thick spikes, which is a great way to change the profile of your face.
This is because tall spikes, that are over an inch tall, will help give an edge to the roundness of your face. Just get your barber to cut the sides of your hair shorter to emphasize the height of your hair further.
17. Pompadour with an Undercut
Cool, sleek and fashion-forward: the pompadour‘s slicked-back style makes it one of the trendiest men’s haircuts for round faces.
But if the traditional route is too been-there-done-that for your taste, give the look an edgier, more contemporary feel with shaved undercut sides. This will emphasize the height and fullness on top, drawing attention away from the roundness of your face shape.
18. All Natural
Embrace the texture of your natural hair and wear it proudly. Rounded afros or curls with a little more height on top look great on round-faced men.
19. Caesar Cut
If you love the idea of the French crop but want something that’ll really show off your hair texture, this contemporary version of the Caesar cut will be right up your street.
20. Modern Quiff
The modern quiff is one of our favorite men’s haircuts for round faces, which will help to elongate your face shape. The trick is to create volume by simply brushing up your quiff, but we’ll leave it up to you how high you dare to go…
The fauxhawk is one of the hottest hair trends for men right now and is great for adding optimum volume, and prominent angles to your face.
22. Long French Crop
This longer and more modern French crop is the perfect hairstyle for round faces. By adding layers this cropped cut has plenty of texture and movement and is best styled with a longer fringe.

24. Straight Shag
Add layers and a choppy finish to your medium-length cut to help add shape and define a round face.
