Not all of us are blessed with slim and delicate faces. Some have round faces and chubby cheeks, and if you’re one of those countless women with a chubby face, do not despair. Instead, you should consider yourself lucky enough to be blessed with symmetrical features and wider cheekbones. Chubby faces are more attractive than slim ones. While round faces can be considered as God’s gift, styling your hair in a wrong way can make the roundness of your face prominent, thereby hiding your cuteness and making you look spherical.

If you happen to fall in the realm of circular face shapes, then this article is for you.

Take a look at the collection of hairstyles below and learn to embrace the face shape you were born with, and make the most out of it!

  • Shivani

    Nice post..My experience says that short hair on round face is a bad option.. my opinion though.. its btr to have hair length below the shoulders.. I really here liked the hair up and layers cut.. they are safe and good to sport.. :)

    • Michi

      It depends on the style, really. I have a very round, chubby face and ended up with a very short style due to miscommunication between my stylist, my mother, and I. I had to tweak the style a little, but it worked out nicely for me. Added layers and bangs to it.
