Round faces

If you have found out that you have a round face, remember either to have short hair or chin length hair. You should consider layering your hair right from the top and keep your hair close to your face. Do not cut your hair very, very short and have a haircut that is rounded and ends at your chin. This will exaggerate your face shape even more. Straight bangs are not recommended, but if you love bangs, you should curl them and wear them to the side.

A square face has a very sharp angled jawline and has square shaped eyebrows. In order to lessen these features, you should strive for hairstyles that emphasize the cheekbones.
