Transcript:5 Easy Styles for Long Hair and a Round FaceLong hair can go in more directions than you might think. And I don't just mean into your eyes. There are many styles to select from that can complement a round face that are easy to whip up before going to work or out on the town.
Style Natural Waves for Long Hair and a Round FaceThe first style is to take advantage of the natural wave found in your hair, which most women have to some degree. After washing it, scrunch your hair up to retain some of its curl. You can add one of many hair care products on the market that helps to hold these waves.
Or, if it needs more of a boost to stay in place, wrap locks of hair around a curling iron after adding the products. A stunning example of this look is demonstrated by Kate Winslet.
Long Bobs Are an Easy Style for Long Hair and a Round FaceWhen you hear the term "bob," you might think that's a look for short hair. However, many celebs have popularized a hairstyle known as the long bob in recent years. Seems like a contradiction in terms but it really is an easy hairstyle to create.
The long bob is about two inches beyond the jaw line and is a flattering length for those with a round face. The angled cut draws attention to the best features of a round face, and the style also works great for those who might have fine, straight hair.
Actress and author Tori Spelling is a great example of this look. All you need is a flat iron or curling iron as well as hair care products that provide the necessary volume that those with fine hair need most.
Easy Updos for Long Hair and a Round FaceJust because you have long hair doesn't mean it always has to be down. Take that hair up to a new level with an up-do. This look can carry you from the office or a day out to a night on the town. One actress that utilizes the up-do or stylized ponytail is Cameron Diaz.
While she can get away with the somewhat messy-looking bun with waves around her face, others with round faces may want to neaten up the look with a sweeping, stylized look to the hair. Those with bangs can create a sophisticated, yet youthful, look by pulling hair back and pinning it in place with a spritz of hairspray.
Relax Curly Hair for an Easy Style for Long Hair and a Round FaceThen, there are those that have the opposite problem to those with fine hair -- their hair is so naturally curly that it can take away from a round face. And not everyone can get away with the likes of Beyonce's incredible 'do. So take a look at a few styling tricks to tame that mane.
While a hairstylist can do their part by adding layers or thinning out its fullness, you can also use a relaxer product, flat iron, or even a curling iron to make those curls relax to a beautiful effect. Actress AnnaLynne McCord is a gorgeous example. This may take some practice, but once you have it down, it's an easy way to put your curly and once frizzy locks on lock down.
Bangs Are an Easy Way to Keep Long Hair and a Round Face StylishFinally, bangs offer an easy way to keep long, straight hair looking stylish and help bring out the beautiful features of a round face.
