1. Selena Gomez : Side Swept Bob
Actress and singer Selena Gomez has made her face look longer by parting her hair on the side and also by keeping some serious volume to her hair. If she were to plaster her hair to her head, it would accentuate it’s roundness but instead she’s added some bounce and lift to it. She also has a long bang wisp to make it more of an asymettrical look and it helps her face appear more narrow. We also love the coffee brown base with a golden medium brown tone. Finish the look by curling in the bottoms and you will feel sophisticated and elegant.
2. Emma Stone : Lots of Layer in Copper Brown
Birdman actress Emma Stone has added lots of layers as well as volume to her copper brown hair. She has a middle part which gives her face a longer look and brings attention to her eyes. We love the wavy curls that frame her face and hide a little bit of the roundness on each side. This isn’t cheating, it’s thinking strategically! Even her high neck dress makes her hair look longer too.
3. Renee Zellweger : Thin and Straight Blonde
Actress Renee Zellwegger has an adorable look and one of the main things we see celebrities with round faces utilizing is the side part, especially one that adds a little volume on top. If your hair usually lays down flat, you can blow dry it with a round brush up and away from your scalp. You can also tease it a little bit and add some paraben and sulfite free hair spray to keep the volume.
4. Cameron Diaz : Soft Long Side Bangs
Sexy comedic actress Cameron Diaz from The Holiday, There’s Something About Mary and The Mask knows how to get her round face to work for her. Her hair is chine length and the deep side part which starts up and back and pulls forward is the secret to this bouncy and soft look. The platinum with low lights matches the soft curls and light blue eyes as well as her lighter skin. Notice how half of her forehead is covered and this allows her face to look more narrow.
5. Hayden Panettiere : Asymmetrical A-Line
One of our favorite cuts for round faces is the asymmetrical a-line and this American actress, singer, model and activist looks darling in her straight blonde cut. She has some volume on the top of her head which is created by brushing part of the hair back and part of it diagonally. This is a simple and low maintenance look you can quickly get by blow drying your hair. Ask your stylist to thin out the under layers of your hair if you have thick hair and don’t forget to add some deep magenta lipstick for fun!
6. Kelly Clarkson : Straight with a Gold Face Frame
Famous singer Kelly Clarkson wears this zig-zag part so well and it’s a slightly asymmetrical look that really does wonders for her round face shape. She has pulled the face framing sides together by making them more yellow which helps to make the look more long. Finally, she has some volume on top and the cut is thinned out so it will lay down easily without much effort (an added bonus).
7. Miranda Lambert : Super Blonde with One Side Back
Another great short hairstyle for round faces is this shoulder length blunt cut which is pulled back behind the ear on one side. It definitely gives an illusion of a longer head with the wave in the part. Her darker eye makeup brings all the attention to her eyes as well because it contrasts that really bright blonde hair. No one is thinking about how round her face is, that’s for sure!
8. Olivia Munn : Ringlets for Volume
We absolutely love this charming look on actress, model and author Olivia Munn. She is just drop dead gorgeous with those dark ringlet curls and a middle part. Notice how the curls don’t go all the way up and are more concentrated on the bottom to give her hair a triangular shape and again, the high neck line creates a longer looking face shape. Make sure to curl away from your face and don’t worry about placing every hair perfectly in any specific place.
9. Sarah Hyland : The 80’s Wave
Round faces can make women look much younger than they are which can be a good thing but clothing design can also turn that the other direction if you want as can hairstyle. 24 year old Sarah Hyland is wearing this 80’s look so well with the golden voluminous side part and big wave. Her cropped sleeves and high waist match the hair style and no one even notices her round face because once again, she has a high neck line on her shirt and a deep side part that gives her hair more height elongating her face.

The secret to actress Katie Holmes’ look is the asymetrical dress combined with the simple side parted cut. The layers give her hair movement and this short cut is just precious. This is a great look for women who have naturally straight hair and actually it would work well in different shades of brown.
11. Adele : Big and Bold with Extra Volume
Singer Adele looks like a total movie star with her big curls that are parted to the side. The more volume the better for this look because although she house a round face, we notice her eyes, hair and lips much more than anything else. She also chose a high neckline to make the hair look longer and because the high neckline makes her neck look shorter, her face looks longer. There’s a science to this ladies!

This is one of our favorite looks and we just can’t get enough of it!
15. Kirsten Dunst : Blonde with Bangs and Dipped Ends
Actress Kirsten Dunst is positively stunning with this blonde cut with bangs. The bangs are thin so the sides won’t be cut back too wide.

21. Emily Browning : The Short A Line Bob
This is one of our favorite looks not only because it’s really low maintenance but because it’s so darling. Emily has matched her hair color to her eyes and the short layers lay upon each other creating a tier effect with sweeping choppy bangs. The points on the front of her hair compliment the beehive look on the top of head which makes her whole head feel longer. This is an easy look that can work for both straight hair and curly hair.

This classy and elegant look with a high neck line top elongates the appearance of her face. She has a beautiful platinum blonde color and the hair is thin.

Rachael has a cute fairy tale look going on here that makes her face look more oval. The fronts of her hair frame her face and the deep V neck cut of her shirt elongates her neck. The short bangs also help give the illusion of a longer face and we love how they are choppy and uneven.

We love how Lily has embraced her thick hair and curled it to the utmost. We love the volume she has created on the sides and in the bangs. Notice how she has curled almost up to the roots of her hair and she has butter blonde mixed with platinum and some brown underneath. This is a very artsy look which enables her to rock edgy fashion accessories and wardrobe choices as well!

Valorie sports a high neck line on her dress and what better way to pull attention away from a round face than to create points with your hair? The lines of the hair coming diagonally with darker roots create movement and just an overall really interesting and flattering look. This helps contrast her round cheeks and shows her beautiful neck.

Finger waves are fun and look fabulous with this short cut that is long on top. Finger waves are done with clips that create the waves.
