I would try a loose, wavy chignon- that way you have some texture and a little volume from the waves, and you have hair pulled down by your face, so it gaves some balance to the roundness. You could also have loose wavy wisps pulled down near your face to help slim down the round shape. I think if you did that and added some kind of flower or fascinator to your hair, it would look great. Maybe like this?:

@shyviolette: That would be an awesome style! Just make sure the front pieces are on the longer side–you want to give the illusion that your face is longer than it actually is. Some long sideswept bangs and an updo with some nice volume on top would work well, too.

I have a round chubby face to and I noticed when I wear my hair up it looks chubbier so I’m gonna wear it half up/half down with long swept bangs n loose curls..my inspiration is angelina jolies hair but with side swept bangs:) you should try that it somehow slims my face when I wear my hair like hers:)

BIG!  I say, the higher the hair the closer to God/Buddha/Alah(sp?)/whatever you want to put there 🙂


Plus, if you have a round face (like me), big hair plus face framing curls added in, makes for one hott updo!

@BluegrassBridetoBee: I recently had my hair trial and decided against an updo as I too have a very round face.


That being said in a recent article I read in a bridal magazine it said that updos that are more on top of your head rather than low and behind will elongate your face. However, updos that are lower and with tendrils will make your face rounder and tendrils are typically incoporated to soften faces with more angles.

Hope that helps!
