Women with round faces or chubby cheeks sometimes feel that they have to wear their hair long or add extensions to draw attention away from a plumper visage. But, sometimes all of that hair can weigh you down and look somewhat dated. Bobs are definitely the style of the moments, especially their shoulder length varieties, which still offer length, beautiful silhouette and the desirable slimming effect. Whether you are a blonde or brunette with wavy hair or straight tresses, there is a bob hairstyle that won’t overemphasize your round face. Check out our top 40 options below.
Best Bobs for Round Faces
If you wish to make your face appear slimmer with a bob haircut, go no shorter than a chin length in front. It can be a stacked bob with shorter nape, angled bob, graduated bob or longer bob – lob. Choose an off-centered or side part – they won’t make your face chubbier.
1: Classic Blunt Bob
When you are blessed with gorgeous facial features and you want to make them the focal point, opt for a blunt haircut. It will allow your eyes to pop without any distractions. Plus, a clean-cut chin length style can work for any occasion.
2: Straight Collarbone Lob
Who doesn’t love a super sleek bob cut? If you want to give it a try too, think one straight line cut just above the collarbone. It’s a smooth, elegant take that is also totally easy to style — just grab a flat iron and straighten out any rogue texture. A sleek lob works to slim the appearance of a rounder face by creating the illusion of a longer, thinner face shape.
