Are you talking about for a wedding or everyday hair?

 

In everyday retrospect, I think long layered hair looks good because it hides your cheeks.

 

Wedding style wise, either all down or half up half down but curles to add volume. Here are some from my trials and day of

 

 

I hope that helps!

I think that having hair severely pulled back, looks good if you have the bone structure to pull it off. I think a softer, looser look is better on a rounder face. This is the image I keep coming back to as my wedding hair inspiration. I think that it’s soft enough to flatter a plus sized bride. When I do my hair trial months from now, I will find out.

@SandyThePoet: Agreed. This is what I will go for…but I’ll probably need some fake hair pieces as my hair is wispy thin and about shoulder length. I need a little volume around my face or I look school-marm-ish and severe. lol

I love 1/2 up and 1/2 down.  It’s what I wear when I’m dressing up for something and what I chose for my wedding!  Here’s some of my trial pics:

And my wedding day:

I have mid length hair – not short, but not long.  I like my hair up because its a lot easier to deal with – however – I havent figured out one over the other.  The top pic is me a few weeks ago.  The last three pics are ones I like … havent picked one in particular.

I have been growing my hair for two years to get it longer, but my hair is very thin as well and I did get the clip in hair extensions that were human hair.  I think I paid about $100 and they came with 7 rows of varying sizes.  They make such a HUGE difference with the amount of hair on my head it is crazy!  I agree that a “soft” hairstyle works best and, for me, I need to wear my hair up because I sweat when I dance.  Sorry – gross I know but it’s true.  I am wearing a side chignon, however instead of having it like Carrie Underwood’s in the picture above, it is actually going to hang lower and fall just past my chin vs the cheek, which is the broadest part of my face.  I’ll post pics in another 8 days.  🙂

My mom and I did a hair trial at home and I loved it… the bangs hide my fat cheeks and the flower distracts from my double chin. (i think anyway). Ignore the bobby pin in the bangs, we actually figured out how to hide it after the pics were taken.

Kind of like everything else, I think it depends on the person.  I have a long face so long hair/down hairstyles aren’t the best.  I’m going with an updo with loose curls around my face to frame my face.

Half up half down do’s look great on me! (I’m a plus Bride) Also I agree…I think longer hair is better- more coverage… Laughing
