Kelly Clarkson shows us what not to do for a round face shape. But if you really want a pixie haircut, it can look great on a round face shape
. Make sure that you get pieces cut that will help to define your eyes and cheekbones. Use a bit of sculpting gel to keep these pieces in place after you style.
For a bob or any hairstyle that is cut above the shoulders, make sure that is has a tousled or messy look. Use a texturing spray to add some wave and movement at the top that will take away from the round jawline. If you really want a traditional bob, get an angled cut that will have hard lines to balance the face shape.
Use a smoothing serum for longer locks that will take away from the bulk of hair around the face. If your hair is layered, mix up the lengths of the layers and wear a deep side part. The side swept look of the hair on top will make the face shape look slimmer and take away some of the roundness. If you have longer layers that are past your shoulders, make sure that your shortest layer is not above your chin. A center part with longer layers will take away some of the width in the face shape.
A great hairstyle that will flatter a round face shape is a smooth ponytail. Put it at the same level as your ears, and make sure that the hair going back is smooth and flat. Any type of texture or wave on your head will add bulk to your face.
