Transcript:Tips for Styling Hair if You Have a Round Face

Hi, My name is Tye Coe for About.com. I am a celebrity hair, make-up and fashion stylist. Today we are at the fabulous BeSu Salon and Day Spa here in New York City and I am going to give you some tips on styling your hair if you have a round face.

Add Volume at the Crown of the Hair

One really great technique in styling your hair if you have a round face is to make sure that you are styling going forward. It is going to help in slimming down your face and it is going to help it appear less round.

Another really great tip in styling hair if you have a round face is to definitely add some volume and height in the crown area. So you want to do that by just back combing in the crown section. If you do that make sure you add a little bit of hairspray so that the height stays throughout the day and style it in a way so that you do not have a rats nest. So you can see how creating just a little bit of volume in the crown helps in balancing out Marinas face shape.

Use Angles in Your Hair Style

Another really great tip in styling hair if you have a round face is creating an angle bang effect. An angled bang is a really great way in balancing out a round face shape. And one way to style that is going back slightly with your curling iron. Once you have curled your hair back you can then style it going away from the face. You are going to then just kind of do a flip out motion in creating just a soft swept bang. Add a little hairspray. You can do the same thing on the other side, but only in the very front section because you want to keep, like I said, hair coming towards your face. So if you are going to do the other side, make sure you only do a little bit. So you can see how we have got the same flip out motion here but we have got hair going towards the face to help slenderize the face.

So these are some great tips in styling your hair if you have a round face. Thanks for watching! To learn more, visit us at About.com.
