Transcript:How to Style a Bob Cut for a Round Face

Hi, my name is Tye Coe for About.com, I am a celebrity hair, makeup and fashion stylist and today we are at the fabulous BeSu Salon and Day Spa here in New York City and I am going to show you how to style your hair if you have a bob cut and a round face.

Create Sleek Sides for the Bob Hair Style

The first thing you want to remember if you have a round face and you have a hair cut that is a bob: you do not want to do any excessive volume on the sides. So you want to first start with creating really sleek sides with your flat iron, and you are going to style going towards your face. You want to do the same thing on the other side.

Add Volume to the Crown of the Bob Style

So after you have created really sleek sides with the flat iron and you have styled going towards your face you want to then add some volume in the crown area to balance out your face shape. So we will take a section in the top, add a little volume with some back combing, add some hairspray so that you keep the volume throughout the day. That volume, like I said, is going to help in balancing out your face shape.When you finish off your style, if you have a round face and a bob cut, you want to make sure you spray pulling the hair forward towards your face.

And this is how you style your hair if you have a bob cut and a round face. Thanks for watching. To learn more, visit About.com.
