And I’ve finally put my finger on why that is – it’s the first hairstyle babies and toddlers wear when their hair is just starting to grow! It’s a cute look for a round face shape, because the long fringe breaks the circle, there’s tousled height on top and the sides are kept close to the head. With short layers around the crown gradually lengthened into a trendy long fringe and long sides, you can wear it casually brushed back or tucked behind the ears.

Short haircuts for 2016: Here’s another of the long, pixie haircuts that’s shows why easy, short hairstyles for round faces are so popular this season! It has lots of volume-boosting layering over the top, to avoid the plastered-to-the-head look that fine hair can fall into. This also creates lovely, natural texture as the sun-lightened (or salon-lightened) strands make a cute pattern of pointed strands over the slightly darker hair underneath!
The best hairstyles for round faces avoid curls and fussiness, which emphasise the curves and symmetry. In particular, never wear curly sides which add width to your cheeks. This clever little pixie haircut looks like an angled short bob hairstyle from the front, but has a layered and textured back with a ragged outline above the nape. The inverted triangle outline of the fringe, showing the forehead, is a great geometric touch to break a circular face. Long, smooth sides ending in sharp, shaggy tips add length, to balance out width at the jaw-bone beautifully. It’s an easy daily hairstyles option to do in the mornings, but a very eye-catching and contemporary cut and colour!
Isn’t this a fab side-view of a great, daily hairstyle that relies on the cut for its lovely curved outline! It’s Suitable for fine and medium-thick hair, it’s a simple bowl-cut with long layers emerging from the crown to become curved, tousled strands with lots of movement around the head. If your hair is fine, add Schwarzkopf Got2Be volumising powder for long-lasting volume or give yourself a colour and body-boost with bleached highlights. Easy, short hairstyles for round faces almost always have an asymmetrical deep side-parting, and this swept-across neutral-blonde fringe looks very soft and smooth.
Having a round face is a ‘good thing’, by the way, and does not mean a fat face. It means you have a fairly symmetrical face and only need to tweak it a tiny bit to achieve the perfect ‘oval’ face shape! A heavy fringe – either straight-across or in a diagonal side-swept style – is the perfect way to re-proportion a round face. The easy short hairstyles, based on this idea, demonstrate a pixie cut for thick hair, with sliced layers creating a strong face-flattering line across a round face.
If you have naturally curly hair and a round face, you may look better with one of the straight, easy short hairstyles. Curls draw attention to the curves and symmetry of a round face, so straight lines and geometrical shapes are helpful. This no-nonsense, pixie hairstyle on medium-thick hair is layered over the top to create volume and shape. You just need to use a little styling product, before blow-drying in a straight, textured comb-over. The back has a lovely curve down to the shaped-in nape and short, blunt side-points avoid unwanted width at cheek-level (and bring the focus up and away from a prominent nose)!
What we’ve got here is a very successful makeover that lifts the focus up to a point just above the head – making the lower face, chin and neck appear slimmer. As this shaggy pixie haircut is inches shorter than the long bob she was wearing before, the model is left with one of the latest, easy short hairstyles with a strong, diagonal fringe that flatters a round face. Cutting the hair to a length that ‘tails off’ just below the cheekbones reduces ‘width’ and the cute, wispy tips accentuate a pair of well-shaped lips. Overall, the ‘after’ pixie cut frames the eyes and forehead, instead of focussing on the model’s slightly double chin and making her neck look broader than it actually is!
Another great way to lift up the focal point of the best short hairstyles for round faces is to have a bright blonde tint on a thick, side-swept fringe! It really changes your whole look and with the density of the blonde streaks graduated to just a few around the crown, you have a lovely colour contrast in the lower lengths! Plus – it’s an easy short hairstyles idea to which you can add a temporary, pink, purple, blue or red tint for a party look, too!
This glamorous party hairstyle is another of the many short hairstyles for round faces you can achieve on a long pixie cut. In this version, the round face shape is broken by the diagonal line of a long, asymmetrical pale-blonde fringe. See how it tapers into a curve at the side to draw the eye inwards towards the mouth, minimising the sense of width in the lower face. In ‘special event’ or daily hairstyles for round faces, you should aim for extra volume or a trendy hair decoration on the top of the head. This is a great way to recycle your old diamond bracelets – ha ha – but if you don’t have any, this diamantée headband is the perfect party hair accessory!
Round faces are very symmetrical, so that’s one of the reasons why the latest asymmetrical pixie cuts are so popular as party and daily hairstyles. Messy hair (without curls) is a great way to add strong, straight lines that balance out a curvy face. This easy short hairstyle’s got sharply textured layers breaking up the curve of the front hairline, plenty of face-lengthening forehead on show and straight, messy strands at the sides to minimise the curve of a rounded cheek! A good short cut for thin hair.
To increase focus on the upper part of a round face, add an unexpected flash of colour in a swept across fringe. This model has dark-blonde hair, which is a cool shade, so it can be livened up with a cool pastel colour such as aqua-blue. If you choose a highlight colour that matches or contrasts with your eyes, you can accentuate them even more in the latest cute pixie haircuts!
