When it comes to short haircuts for round faces, stylists agree in one voice: there are plenty of pixie cuts and bobs to choose from and the options are endless. Before asking your hairdresser to give you a short bob, a layered do or a sassy pixie, however, there are some bases you need to cover first:

  • If your new haircut doesn’t cover your ears, you’d better get a very creative stylist to get the most out of your ear-free do;
  • Your bangs should be styled asymmetrically, to make your face look thinner;
  • Your haircut should let you rake your fingers through your hair to give it an edgy look with vertical lines;
  • Almost all short haircuts for round faces should feature elongating A-line outlines and side swept bangs and strands to mask the face roundness;
  • Go for haircuts that add texture, edges and well defined tresses so you can achieve a super flattering look;
  • Don’t fear a choppy, shaggy haircut; there are some fine styles you might want to try.

And now let’s get inspired!

Your round face needs framing, and sideburns will achieve exactly that! If you want to go all the way in, you can style this cute pixie by dying it darker at the roots and lighter at the ends. This leads to an optical illusion, as the eye would be fooled to look at your dark roots, thus imagining the boundaries of your face starting from there, and not from your natural hair growth line.

2. The Side Parted A-Line Bob

This may be the very definition of all haircuts for round faces. This longer bob (almost shoulder-length) allows your strands and bangs to beautifully frame your face without hiding it, while the side part does the trick and masks the face roundness. Such haircut is also recommended to girls who don’t want to spend hours styling their hair because this one features a light messy wavy look which needs no effort.

3. The Elongating Short Locks Pixie

Not all short haircuts work for all women and not all round faces are flattered by short hairstyle. However, this is a match made in Heaven. Start from a tapered pixie and style it upwards to create the illusion of verticality and “steal” the eye. This is a daring cut, as it leaves the ears uncovered, but as we said before, a creative and skilled hairdresser can pull this off with no problems.

4. Side Bangs, Curly Waves, Messy Bob

From a contemporary point of view, this haircut is one of the best choices out there. It is a simple pixie, fundamentally, but the edgy, feathered bangs achieve that face elongation round faced girls need so much. This certainly looks naturally, young, full of confidence and attitude. The black dye does wonders to such haircut, but you can also try some graded styles as well.

6. The Playful Rounded Bob

Some say that round dos are a no-no when it comes to haircuts for round faces styles and ideas. We beg to differ. Any good round bob can be accented by a side sweep. Allowing stacked layers in the back and keeping everything compact for volume is the way to go. If you pick a daring hair dye color you will rock 2016 with no problems.

7. The Timeless Voluminous Pixie

This is a classic pixie which left enough volume to benefit from. As you can see, it frames perfectly the face, narrowing it down flawlessly. The side part and the voluminous top makes this haircut look neat and sweet, no matter if you carry it around at work or at a fancy dinner. It also adds a dash of youthfulness.

8. The Spiky Men-Inspired Pixie

Men’s haircuts have sometimes been an inspiration for girls, with the added feminine touch. If you feel like one of the guys, have a round face but won’t settle for less than the ultimate charming pixie cut (male-inspired), then this one is for you. Some back in the day rappers popularized this cut and girls are now taking it for a new spin. You have an edgy pixie, totally asymmetrical and really buzzing. The blond – black duet, the spikes and the undercut go great with young bold girls, but also with 40 – 50 (and counting) years old women. And, as you can see, it goes just fine with glasses as well.

9. The Temple Undercut Curly Diagonal Pixie

What you have here is pure African American beauty: dark, curly hair and a perfect complexion. A round face as well, but this isn’t a problem for this girl. And it shouldn’t be for you either if you want to try this short haircut. The asymmetry allows the side curled bangs to add volume, enhanced by the diagonal line crossing the forehead. The proper lift receives added value from the visible temple undercut, as both are visually striking, thus correcting the face roundness.

10. The Free Spirited Choppy Do

Even if it looks a bit shaggy, this is a well crafted short hairstyle which is easily adaptable to plus size women and skinny ones as well. If you are a bit chubby and have a round shaped face, go for this flipped, choppy hairdo. It frames the cheekbones, covers the ears and lifts the face and the neck. It looks feminine and needs little effort in styling. If you pick a lovely hair dye color you can be red carpet diva every day of the week.
