HAIR STYLES FOR ROUND FACES.

20130910-230816.jpg

Hello ladies,
Often times I’ve been at the salon and I’ve overheard women complaining about how they can’t do a particular hair style because they have a round face etc And I just stay mute but deep down I’m just shaking my head lol
Because to be honest you can rock any style as long as its well cut
************************************************
Anyway I have a round and Long face, lol I don’t know how else to explain it, but over the years I’ve discovered styles for my face structure that also accentuates my features…

—- I’ve compiled a list, with pictures of famous people rocking them and also yours truly with a round face ^.^ (I had to dig through my archives for the pictures)
1.Side fringe with layers: This hair style takes you from ordinary to Glam instantly, its very regal when done by a good stylist, with layers meeting your 3 focal points brows, cheeks and jaw…..

2.Braids: personally I feel braids fits everyone, especially when styled properly, but I do braids like once a year just because I don’t have the time to sit for long hours.

3. Short bob with waves/curls: The reason I specified wit curls is because, straight short bob on round faces makes you appear like you have an helmet on, (my opinion) so with the curls it appears softer against your face.

4.Bohemian/ very curly hair : This personally is my favourite I wear this look all the time, the spring curls on the bohemian actually flatters round faces, especially when it falls to your face, and length just at the mid-neck region, either as a side/fringe or centre part .

5.Long and Full fringe: This allows focus on your eyes and chin, a full fringe when well done hides a lot, e.g breakouts on the fore head and un-groomed brows. Now adays the fringe can even be scanty as long as its well cut. For my face shape i ensure the hairdresser cuts it directly below my brows, not longer or shorter.

6- short cut: as seen popularly on Rihanna, kris jenner, kelis and fantasia., what would make this hair style work for you are the bangs in the front and well cut sides, and the mini hump created at the back to give an illusion of a protruding back .

General tips:
-ensure layers are present in long weaves
-when doing styles like ghana weaving all back, ensure your brows are well carved(this can make all the difference)
-avoid hair styles that would make your face appear like a perfect sphere.

Shout out to all the round faced beauties out there lol, I hope This helped.

p.s As you all know I don’t know how to pose, so pardon the pictures!
