Round face has identical width and length, which makes the shape easy to recognize. A round face makes the cheeks look fuller, so it is important that you go for a haircut that will slim down the chubbiness of your cheeks.
The choppy bob layered cut causes a slimming effect on round faces, by creating the illusion of a long face. Make sure, the layers never end at chin line, which will only add more roundness to the already round face. Always Keep the layer below the chin line This will add sharpness to the cheek bones, thus making this one of the most ideal choppy medium hairstyles for women with a round face.

Long faces usually have a large forehead and elongated chin that makes the face look oblong. While choosing a choppy hairstyle for a long face bangs will help camouflage a larger forehead. Medium hair length will help strike the balance between the Bangs and the length. Also, this choppy medium layered hairstyle suits any hair texture since it reduces the volume of curly hair and adds sharpness to straight hair.

3. Choppy Medium Hairstyle for Heart-Shaped 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 jawline is a unique 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.

Medium length is very often seen as boring. But you can spice up your shoulder-length locks with some layers. Layers not only add style but also help define your face shape. Depending on how heavy or light you want your layers, your hair can look thicker or finer than it originally was. So, tie off your medium hair in any hairstyle like a ponytail or an updo, and the layers make it ten times better. So, scroll up and pick your favorite choppy medium-length hairstyle and try it out for yourself!
