Flatter your face shape with these hairstyle ideas.
Faces come in all shapes and sizes and for many women, this means having a fuller face. This isn't an actual face shape per say—full faces can be oval, round, square heart shaped or diamond shaped—but rather, it's when more weight is carried in the face than usual.
Sometimes this appears as super cute chipmunk cheeks, a fuller neck and jaw area, or it can simply be all over fullness in the face. If this applies to you and you are looking for a hairstyle solution, have no fear because we are bringing you the latest and greatest 'dos for fuller faces straight from the red carpet. These hairstyles will give you some ideas for your next salon visit and will make the most of your fuller face shape.
Melissa McCarthy looks gorgeous here in an eye-skimming fringe and a blunt medium 'do. Ladies with a fuller face like Melissa do well when they bring the attention to the eyes, and what better way to do this than with long bangs? Instead of going for a blunt, straight across fringe (which would not flatter a full face), Melissa has opted for an arched fringe with jagged ends. This is the perfect fringe for heavier faces. The rest of her hair looks glossy and healthy, thanks to her rich brown hair color with sun-kissed highlights and the blunt finish at the bottom (which is a great technique to use to make your hair look thicker).
Tamela J. Mann has most of her fullness in the cheek area, which is nicely balanced out by this wild fiery 'do! By creating a ton of volume on the top, Tamela avoids adding more width to her face, plus, it's just a super cool hairstyle to wear. Work your best features with this tapered cut that has longer jagged layers on top for maximum style versatility. Although this haircut would look good in any color, Tamela's deep red base with fiery tips wins the prize for best color!
For ladies who want a longer, romantic look, check out Sarah Baker's elegant medium hairstyle here. Sarah's fullness is in her cheek and jaw area so she uses soft waves and a cascading side part to camouflage that area. This is a soft and feminine look that suits the fuller face nicely—plus it has the added versatility of updos as well. Wearing the hair up or off the face is very slimming and will suit the fuller face nicely. If you have layers around your face, leave those down to create a nice frame and provide a bit more coverage if you prefer.
And finally, for something sleek and sophisticated, check out Kelly Osbourne's smooth side-parted hairstyle here. Kelly has fullness in her chin and cheek areas, so keeping the volume on the top and the ends tucked away is a great way to balance out the face. This is a simple yet elegant hairstyle that takes only minutes to style, so you may want to try this one out if you are in the mood for a trendy new look.
As you can see, a full face does not mean a fat face. It simply means that there is extra fullness in certain areas, which you can certainly make the most of like these celebs have done!
