Round face has identical width and length, which makes the shape easy to recognize. Round Face makes the cheeks look fuller, so it is important that you go for a hair cut that will slim down the chubbiness of your cheeks.

Choppy Bob Layered cut causes slimming effect on Round faces, by creating an illusion of long face. Also make sure, the layers should never end at chin line which will only add more roundness to the already round face. Keep the layer, below the chin line always; this will add sharpness to the cheek bones, thus keeping the chubbiness down making this one of the most ideal choppy medium hairstyles for women with round face.

The peculiar feature of a Heart-shaped face is the pointing chin. So any one with this face type should be very careful, so as to not choose a haircut that will enhance the sharpness of the chin. Side swept bangs with Choppy ends in medium or long length works best with Heart-shaped face. The Choppy Bangs hide the forehead, while the medium length smoothes the sharpness of the pointing chin.

Avoid pulling your hair back or the poufy top, this will only add to the sharpness of the chin.
Keep your bangs moderate than scanty, layer down from the sides and down to your chin.This will add volume to the jaw line creating an illusion of balanced chin.

4. Choppy Medium Length Hairstyles for Square Face Shapes:

Angular Jaw line is peculiar feature of a square shaped face, apart from a wide forehead. Choppy Hair style in medium length is appropriate for a square shaped face. Choose edgy and choppy ends for a major difference and stay away from the blunt end, as it will ruin the edginess of the square shaped face.

The trick here is, the starkness of the hair will play and enhance against the strong jaw line and wide forehead. It adds a femininity and softness to one’s face. If your hair is curly, keep the edges choppy which will also weigh down the volume while adding softness to the stark features of a square shaped face.
