hairstyles to look slim

Fat or chubbiness is something which we modern girls and teenagers detest. Exercising, dieting, and countless other weight loss strategies…… God knows what all we do to shed those extra pounds to acquire the enviable figure which we dream of! Not only it’s a time-consuming process, but also practically impossible (in some cases)!

Want to know an instant slimming treatment? Actually, it’s not a treatment… walk into a salon with a full, plus-size face and walk out with an accentuated face. That’s the magic a perfect haircut and style can do to your personality and confidence level. Hairstyles are meant to bring out the best in your face. There are many hairstyles for fat faces or chubby faces to slim down the fat. Isn’t it perfect? Especially when it won’t cost you much time and money.

Best Hairstyles for Fat Faces (Round Faces)

Style 1: Hair parting

A middle partition makes your face appear heavier around the cheek area. Experiment with different partition styles – side, zigzag or asymmetrical. These styles will take away the focus from your cheek area and bring attention to your forehead.

Style 2: Curly or wavy Hair

Straight hair is a strict no no. When you want to cut down the chubbiness of your cheeks, try creating soft waves. Hairstylist Blandi says, “Create a soft curve around your cheekbones and eyes. We have a tendency to look at the nose and eyes, so when you soften this part of the face, it becomes more attractive and appealing.” And it also takes away the attention from the heavy cheek region!

Style 3: Side Swept bangs

Got big cheeks? Did you hear that trimming the hair to create bangs will help hide chubbiness? Well, it’s true… but wait before you jump the gun!  As appealing they might sound, they will do nothing to enhance your looks. Ask your stylist to give you a side swept bang! This is what brings the focus on the eyes and not on the cheeks.

The most important thing to remember when opting for bangs is not to get heavy bangs, but light wispy bangs. This will help add dimension to your face.

Style 4: Half up-do

When you half up-do your hair, you pull back all the hair away from your face. This will reveal more facial fat than hiding it. But while tying your hair, you can’t leave your hair down as well. So to avoid showing off the problem area, pull out some strands of hair to frame your face and focus will once again shift to your eyes instead of the cheek.

Style 5: Layers

Layer your hair with highlights to give the illusion of a slim face. Sleek and straight hair is a big disaster for chubby face. Layers add volume to your hair  while highlights add depth and dimension to your look. Adding side swept bangs will bring attention to your eyes, while diverting focus from the cheek area.

Style 6: Chic undo

      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.
