Choosing The Right Hairstyle For A Round Face
A round face can be described as having the same facial features and shape as a square face, but with less angular cuts or softer edges. Basically, the sides of your face are rounded with your cheekbones being the widest part of your face and your chin being smoother and less pronounced. Below, you can find an illustration of a man with a round face.
As demonstrated in the image, the best hairstyle for men with round faces is a cut that’s short on the back and sides (a mid or high fade) with some length on top. This haircut will allow you to style a pompadour, slick back, quiff, undercut or side part. The goal is to use your hair to elongate your face and avoid adding width.
