If you have round face shape, you know, you look like Ginnifer Goodwin for your face shape. Lovely round shape. You know, the best hairstyle that matches your look are hairstlyes with waves. And I mean gentle sexy waves as you see in the ocean and not tight curls like MJ sported back in the days. Wave styles will help flatter your round shape but at the same time make your face look longer. The best hair lengths to do this with are medium and long. You can also do a short style, like a pixie cut to contrast the round shape of your face, as long as the cut has lots of textures. But a pixie cut is not something you’ll want to wear every day, so am going to give you a heads up on the types of medium and long hairstyles you should be seen rocking when out and about.
For a medium length you could have loose waves with bangs that are swept to the side of the face. But the difference in these waves are the way they look, they have the wet look about them like some of those sexy beach babes in baywatch have. They call that wet look ‘wet lob’. And when lots of textures are added to the hair it will frame your round shape beautifully.
You could also carry off a mid-neck piecey bob without any probs. As long as it’s got lots of textures and the hair is styled in loose waves with a semi side parting and the bangs loosely swept to the sides of your face, you’d look so cute.
Another bob you could try is the side-swept bob with textured layers, which will draw more attention to your eyes and less focus on the roundness of your face.
There’s a new style around town that would make you stand out, and that is the shag hairstyle, which is suitable for mid-neck to shoulder length hair. The style has a slightly unkempt shaggy look about it, which kind of goes with the rock chick look. The layered gentle waves in the style gives the illusion of a slimmer face and brings attention to your cheeks, lips and eyes.
When looking at long hairstyles, ombre waves are a classy yet daring fashion statement to make with your hair, it shows people that you have class but also have a naughty side to you. This hairstyle would look good on your face shape because the curls will bring attention to your cheekbones.
You could also do a long wavy natural looking hairstyle with centre-parting and the hair falling gently on the sides of your face. This minimizes the roundness of your face shape and draws attention to focal points in the middle like your eyes, nose and lips.
Talking about bringing attention to your eyes and lips, this means we need to think about the type of make-up to go with your look hun, OK? Now, I was thinking when doing your eyebrows you should go for a darker colour as well as giving your eyebrows a bit of an angle, this way your eyes will get all the attention and it will elongate the shape of your face. You should more often than not go for warm colours for your eye makeup as it also draws attention to that area away from the roundness of your face, as well as make your eye colour pop! Remember, wide and natural brows are best on a round face than painfully-picked-to-look-thin-and -narrow brows, Kapish? Now for your cheeks, we want to make your face look thinner, so we are going to contour under your cheekbones with a bronzer in order to make them look sharper and give the face the thinner look. We are also going to add blush to your super cute cheeks, under your cheekbones as well, to get the desired elongated look.
For your lips, if you had full plump lips then all you would need to put on is the lipstick and you’re done! But because your lips are slightly thinner we are going to draw them out a little more to make them look plump, luscious and oh so kissable. The lip colour you wear should compliment your skin tone, so in your case sweet heart with your lovely pale complexion you can wear super bright colours, as well as burgundy.
The crème de la crème to set off your whole look honey, IS the sunglasses. And we are going to make sure you are looking fabulous by the time we get the right ones to go with your gorgeous face. Because you have a round face shape your cheekbones and jawline do not stand out as much, so we need to get you shades which will make your face look a little wider, and nothing does that better than glasses with rectangle or square shaped frames. These will not only add definition to your face, they also give illusion of a longer face, and enhance or even add character as well. You could play around with the colours of the frames and go wild on the patterns; this will not only make your eyes look a little bigger but shows the fun side of your personality as well. Having a round face does not make you look like the average Joe, in fact it gives you the opportunity to play with what nature gave you but not worry about doing to much because what you have is near enough perfect. Hair, makeup and shades only adds the extras to what you already got.
