Long Bob Cut

A long bob cut will take eyes off the roundness and chubbiness of the face and will also create an illusion of making it look slimmer than usual. People with round faces should go for an asymmetrical bob or an inverted bob cut hairstyle. This elongates your neck and gives length to your face.


Word of Advice: Stay away from traditional bob cut or pixie cut as they highlight the roundness of your face.

Side-swept Bangs

If you have a sworn love for bangs, you must try side-swept or angled bangs. Make sure you don’t create a straight line across your forehead and rather allow gently angled bangs to work their magic. You can also pull your hair back in a ponytail and let the bangs hang loosely on your forehead. This will instantly make your face look slimmer and longer.


Word of Advice: You must absolutely avoid blunt bangs as they make your hair look both wider and shorter.

Add Layers

Layers are an inexpensive way of softening a plump face. If you have straight, long hair it makes your face look heavier. So add layers especially around the cheekbone. It will immediately highlight your bone structure and make your face seem slimmer.


Word of Advice: For chubby faces always opt for layers that go past the chin.

Side Part

Always play around with the hair parting. Find out what kind of parting will make your face look heavy and which ones will help in concealing your flaws. Those with heart-shaped face should avoid a centre part as it makes your face look chubbier. It is best to do a side part as it is a safer bet.


Word of Advice: The best part that works is one that is opposite side of the natural part. Are you swaying your hair in the other direction, already? 

Highlight Them

Intelligently done hair colouring contrasts can make you look younger and thinner. Don’t forget that shading or highlighting can accentuate you haircut too and also add some dimension and depth to it. So, get some highlights done in streaks and not your entire hair volume!


Word of Advice: Always go for some subtle natural highlights as they can flatter any face type.
