Did you know that everyone has a different shape to their face? There are six face shapes - oval, rectangle, round, square, heart, and diamond. With an accurate analysis, you can figure out what the shape of your face is.

Why would you want to know your face shape?

Because there are certain hairstyles and accessories that look best with each face shape. If you want to bring out the best version of yourself, you're in the right place. This article details the features of a round-shaped face.

Think you have a round face shape? First, read the Vocal article, "How to Determine Your Face Shape" for the three steps you can take to know for sure.

Once you have determined that your face shape is round, read on to learn which hairstyles and accessories are most flattering. Below you can review the traits of a round face shape.

Hairstyles For Round Faces

If your face shape is round, you'll look best in hairstyles that lengthen and create definition. Long layers will give the illusion of a longer face, which will create a more balanced look. Any length past the shoulders is ideal since shorter styles tend to add more roundness to the face.

If you want a shorter look, opt for a lob (long bob). Stay away from short layers or any styles that add volume to the areas around the sides of your face - these will make your face appear more round.

Glasses For Round Faces

With a round face shape, you want to go with a rectangular, geometrical, or cat-eye frame with strong angular lines. Avoid rounded and oval frames. This goes for both eyeglasses and sunglasses.

Shapes that are a stark contrast from your round face shape are best and will add dimension. Try styles that have pointy features, especially at the top, where the illusion of width can be added to the face.

Hats For Round Faces

If you have a round face, you want to avoid hats of a similar shape. Floppy hats with wide, soft brims will make your face appear fuller and rounder. Beanies will also overemphasize the soft roundness of your face. Go for hats that are meant to be worn high on your hairline or even farther back.

Hats with interesting angles also look great on you because they add more dimension to your bone structure. Try fedoras or retro ladylike hats with angles. Fun pom-poms or extra-long slouchy fits are great lengthening embellishments.

Jewelry For Round Faces

Since a round face has no length or hard angles, longer, dangly earrings and necklaces work well to elongate and balance facial features.

Avoid circular styles and styles with soft edges. Instead, go for geometrically shaped pieces with hard edges. The more details and angles the jewelry has, the better.

Round Face Shape Review

A round face shape is soft and proportionate and therefore, hairstyles and accessories should add length and dimension. Avoid very short hairstyles and smoothly rounded accessories.

Wear hats further back on your head to elongate by showing off your forehead and giving the appearance of a longer face. Accompany with a pair of edgy (literally) earrings and a necklace that adds length with a long chain.
