If you have a round face, you’ve been gifted with a soft jawline, high cheekbones and a rounded chin. This shape is characterized by nearly identical width (cheekbone to cheekbone) and length (hairline to chin). However, the wrong haircut can easily put you in baby face territory. The best way to avoid this, explains celebrity hairstylist Jennifer Korab, is to choose a hairstyle that adds angles and structure. Here, the goal is to elongate your face, so long, layered hairstyles will go a long way in creating that illusion. You’ll want to avoid blunt bobs and bangs—both can highlight the roundness of your face (Edna Mode, anyone?). If you do want bangs, Korab advises opting for side-swept or diagonal fringe to create those coveted angles.
