Almost any hair style can be adapted to a round face with certain elements incorporated. Flattering hair styles draw the eye to the top or bottom of the face to create the illusion of a more lengthened face. They may also incorporate texture which gives the appearance of angles.
Long hair with layers cut below the chin elongates the neck and slims the face. Side-swept bangs cut at the cheekbone frame and define the face. Blunt-cut bangs highlight the lips.
Adding volume to the crown lengthens the face, but too much volume near the sides makes a round face more pronounced. Buns and ponytails should be worn either low or high.
An off-center part creates the illusion of a more narrow face. Smooth, straight styles accentuate the face shape without distorting its appearance.
