These stunning styles will frame your face beautifully on your big day.

You know how difficult it is to find hairstyles that flatter your round face. This can be unpleasant, especially on special occasions like your wedding day. We compiled a list of the top bridal hairstyles that flatter round faces.

As you’re dreaming about your wedding day, imagine your dress is perfect, and your shoes are hidden, but your hair sticks to your face, making your round shape even more obvious. *Gasp* A hairstyle that highlights your makeup, reduces the width of your face and enhances your facial features is what you want. Your hairstyle should not make your face appear larger, but it should make your face look longer and more rounded.

It’s possible with the right hairstyle, even though it sounds impossible. Keep reading to see some hairstyles that can transform your round face! First, how do you know if your face is round? Continue reading to learn more!

How to tell if you have a round face

  • Take measurements of the widths and angles of your forehead, cheeks, jawline, and jawline.
  • Measure from the hairline to your chin.
  • A round face is one whose width equals the length of the face.
  • Your jawline will also be rounder and soft than it is angular.

Here are some tips to help you determine if your face has a round shape.

Here are some key points to choosing a good hairstyle for round faces

  • Bangs frame the face and make round faces appear slimmer. Side-swept bangs give your face definition and reduce forehead width.
  • Layered long, straight hair works wonders for round-faced women.
  • For round faces, long waves and full curls are a great choice. Full curls and waves give your face volume, while the waves give it a thinner appearance.
  • A textured lob is a great option for short hairstyles. The back should be shorter than the front, and the front should not be higher than the jawline.
  • If you are considering a bun, go for one with layers. This will give your hair volume and slimming effect.

Here are some things to avoid.

Here are some things to avoid when choosing a hairstyle for a round face

  • Avoid blunt haircuts that are too long (every hair should be the same length), as they can make your face appear larger than it is.
  • You are responsible for your hairstyle choices. Although I don’t think women should avoid short hairstyles with round faces or other skin types, they may not work for everyone. A short haircut is suitable for someone with a round, thin face. For round-faced women, short hairstyles should be avoided.
  • A round face will not look good with curly hair. You can either go straight or curl your hair in full waves or full curls. Avoid zig-zag hairstyles.

Here are 20 options for bridal hairstyles. I also have some tips and tricks to help you maintain your hair during the day.

The Best Bridal Hairstyles for Round Faces

The most popular bridal hairstyles are a stylish bun, a cool braid, or a chignon.

You’ll find 10 DIY options within the 20. I have included them for your convenience to experiment and decide which one you like best. To find the perfect style, try all these hairstyles at least two months before your wedding.

The Elegant Bun

What you need
  • Clips
  • Elastic bands with thin edges
  • Donut bun band
  • Hairpins
  • A string of pearls

Important: Hairpins, donut bun bands (or chignon buns), and the elastic band must be the same or very similar to your hair.

  1. Divide your hair into three sections. The center section is the largest. The sides should be cut. The middle section should be tied into a ponytail.
  2. Use hair pins to lift your ponytail. To cover the donut band, pull your ponytail down. Use an elastic band to secure it.
  3. The loose hair should be taken from one side. Carefully merge it with the lower ponytail. Fold it under the ponytail. Use a hairpin to secure it. Then, blend the remainder of your hair with the middle section.
  4. Blend the ends of the hair with the middle. To secure it, wrap it around the chignon braid. Add a string of pearls to finish it off.

Simple side braid

What you need
  • Curling iron
  • Hairspray
  • Elastic band
  1. You can braid your hair starting at the side. Leave a little hair to create a side fringe.
  2. Continue braiding hair until all of your hair is in the side braid.
  3. Pull on your hair to loosen the braid.
  4. Use a curling iron to curl the side fringe. Spray it with hairspray.

The Two Rose Bun

What you need

  2. Attach an elastic band to the bottom section.

  4. Continue the process to the top.
  5. Place the folded section on top of the other and pin it. The bun should be flattened so that it looks like a rose.
  6. Then, fold the next section in half and place it in a bun at its bottom.

Side Accent Braid with Curls

What you need
