  •  Messy layers 
 A hairstyle with messy layers and long, sideswept bangs doesn't draw too much attention to the cheeks, and opens up so many styling options when it comes to different textures, braids and updos.
  •  Freida Pinto's bob 
 The  wavy bob is a universally flattering look  and can be tailored to make a round face shape appear a little longer.
  •  Messy pixie 
 The texture and added height of a messy pixie won't make the shape appear rounder than it actually is, like some sleeker looks.
  •  Slicked back bob 
 A smooth, slicked back hairstyle can help to elongate the appearance of a round face.
  •  Long sideswept layers 
 This hairstyle looks good on every face shape, whether you keep it natural or go for some smooth movement with a DIY blowout.
  •  Voluminous layers 
 Carefully placed layers and some added volume on top frame round face shapes beautifully.
  •  Bob with barely there waves 
 Super subtle waves add movement to a short, straight bob, and they create a pretty frame for round face shapes.
  •  Long hair with an off-center part 
 Swept over one shoulder, this long hairstyle draws the eye down, creating the illusion of a slightly longer face.
  •  High ponytail 
 With a little volume on top, a high pony can elongate a round face, and it's the perfect second or third day look!
  •  Cute side braid 
 A simple side braid alters the way the hair frames the face and draws attention away from the cheeks.

How to tell if you have a round face

Round faces are typically... round. This doesn't mean they're a perfect circle, but the length and width of the face is roughly equal, with little or no angularity at the jawline.

As always, if you're unsure about your face shape, talk to your stylist about it for a professional insight, and some recommendations about what kind of cut will work best for you!
