Round faces are among the easiest face shapes to recognize due their fairly obvious characteristics. The round face shape is characterized by the fact that the length and the width of the face is similar if not almost identical and the angles tend to be very soft, a feature that differentiates it from the square face shape that tends to have a similar structure with the difference in that its angles are a little sharper. Round faces can pull off a wide variety of hairstyles as long as a few basic rules are kept in mind.
First of all the main thing that should be considered when trying to decide which hairstyle you would most like to try is to keep in mind that a suitable hair style is one that minimizes the width of the face, making it look more oval.
When it comes to the hair length that is the most appropriate for round faces, the opinions tend to be divided. Most women seem to agree that short hairstyles are the most difficult to pull off due to the fact that there are few ways to minimize the width of the face.
Medium hairstyles are seen as a much better choice as they offer more versatility both for styling and for balancing the facial features, but long hairstyles are the ones that offer the maximum face slimming effect.
