If you have a round face, then go through these hairstyle ideas for round-shaped faces. These suggestions will help you to pick a hairstyle that is just right for you.
Whenever considering a hairstyle or haircut, it is important that you pick a hairstyle which focuses on your best facial feature. Also, some practical things like the haircut suiting your lifestyle and hair type is important. If you are looking for round face shape hairstyles, then it will be good to first understand this face shape.
Round face is a full-looking face, that has a round chin and hairline and the widest point in the round face is at the cheeks and ears. So, pick a hairstyle which covers up the cheeks a bit or completely and adds volume to the crown by layering, so that the round face looks longer.

Short Pixie Cuts:

Pixie haircuts suit older women and the round faced.
It is an ideal haircut for thin hair helping add volume to it with a low upkeep. Hair on the sides and back are cut too short with front hair kept long, styled to swept bangs. Check pictures of Rihanna and Winona Ryder's haircut.

Short Layers:

Layered short haircuts look cute and are manageable.
Get some layers cut near your crown, so that your face looks longer. Then cut your hair on the sides into deep layers, so that they fall on your cheeks. Then complete this hairstyle by adding some blunt side bangs.

Graduated Bob Styles:

These haircuts are easy to maintain, suited for straight hair. They look great on teen girls.
For this, cut your hair short near the nape of your neck keeping the side hair longer (symmetrical to look sober/ asymmetrical to look stylish). Add blunt long bangs to finish the look.

Long Wavy Layers:

Near the crown are layers to add volume and some deep layers near the hair ends to give a tapering look. Add side sweeping bangs to this layered hairstyle and style your hair wavy.

Pony Hairstyles:

If you are having a bad hair day, then simply tie your hair into a loose ponytail with a cute rubber band or other hair accessories. Take out some bangs and some strands from the sides to soften your ponytail style.

Braid Hairstyles:

If you have long hair and looking for a hairstyle that looks great and makes your hair more manageable, then try a braid hairstyle. Tie your long hair into a French braid and position the braid on one shoulder. Then take out some strands from sides to soften your look.

Updo Styles:

For an elegant hairstyle, try an updo. Scoop your hair behind and tie them into a bun, position it near the nape of your neck and fix it with hair pins. Take out strands from the sides for a tender look, pairing it with dangling earrings.
So, pick a haircut which suits your hair type and lifestyle and approach a stylist to get a great haircut. If you are having a bad hair day then use few accessories and style your hair into a pony or braid, and for a party style the hair into an elegant updo.
