A good hairstyle is one that enhances your best features and camouflages problem areas. If you have a chubby face, then you need to choose a hairstyle that diverts attention from your rounded jawline.
You need a hairstyle that is slimming and at the same time, suitable for your hair type and facial features. Whether you have long hair or short hair, there is a hairstyle that will suit your face shape.

Asymmetrical hairstyles or layered hairstyles look good on chubby faces.
Before, you choose a particular haircut or hairstyle, speak to your hair stylist about the look you want. Although, your hair stylist can recommend what hairstyles will look good on you, it is best to know which styles will enhance your features and make your face look slim.
Angled Bob Hairstyle

One of the best hairstyles for women with chubby faces is the angled bob hairstyle. It is a very structured hairstyle with long layers at the front of the face. This helps in slimming down appearance of a round face and gives the face more balance.
To create this hairstyle, ask your stylist to cut your hair in long layers at the sides which is cut at an angle. The back of the hair should be at least two inches shorter than the front. To style this haircut, shampoo and condition your hair with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner.
Apply a bit of hair mousse at the crown of the head and then blow dry hair with the help of a paddle brush and blow dryer. Make sure that you apply hair mousse only to the crown of the head and not to the sides. Applying hair mousse on the crown will give the hair a bit of volume which will slim a chubby face.
High Ponytail Hairstyle

A ponytail that is secured high at the back of the head, help to define the facial features and makes a chubby face look less round.
If you thought that a ponytail hairstyle is only for school girls, then think again. A ponytail hairstyle can look chic and sophisticated if the hairstyle is right.
To create a high ponytail that is super sleek, first shampoo and condition your hair with a clarifying shampoo and shine enhancing conditioner. Blow dry hair straight with the help of a blow dryer and paddle brush. Next take some styling lotion and apply it through your hair.
Pull back your hair into a high ponytail and secure it at the back of your head with an elastic band. Take a small half inch section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the elastic band. Secure the end of this hair section by tucking it under the ponytail with a bobby pin. Mist the ponytail with a light hairspray and you are done.
Long Layered Hairstyle

Another hairstyle that works very well for a chubby face is the long layered hairstyle. To create this hairstyle, ask your stylist to cut your hair in long layers, with the first layer just ending at the sides of the jaw.
If you have thick hair, then ask your stylist to thin out the hair on the sides of the face so that it appears thin. To style this haircut, first shampoo your hair with an anti frizz shampoo and shine enhancing conditioner.
When the hair is still a little damp, apply hair mousse to the crown of the hair and then dry hair with a blow dryer and a round brush to create volume. Smooth in some shine serum to the hair at sides and then blow dry it so that it does not become frizzy. By creating volume at the top and by keeping the layers straight, your face will look slimmer.
Layered Hairstyle with Side Swept Bangs

A layered hairstyle with side swept bangs is a good hairstyle for fat faces since long side swept bangs gives the illusion of a slimmer face. The layers also draws attention away from a rounded jawline.
To style this hairstyle, first shampoo and condition your hair with an anti frizz shampoo and conditioner. When the hair is still a little damp, apply a texturizing cream to the hair and blow dry hair straight. Create a deep side part and flat iron the side swept bangs.
