Braids are quite the favorite hairstyle, and there are a variety of versions to try out. From long hair to short hair, there is a braid style that suits your needs and physical features. Here are a few styles to try out if you have a round face, along with brief instructions on how to get the hairstyle you desire.
Casual, curly braids
This style is perfect for a round face and gives off a glossy and sleek finish once completed. The braided cornrows might require some hair extensions if you have shorter hair. The braids are side swept and straight, to complement your round face shape. Shorter braids are mixed in with the look to accentuate the face and avoid a sharp, bland look.
Straight braided style
This style is inspired by Greek goddesses and can be spiced up with a slight bit of color on the braid itself. It is a sexy headband made with your braided hair to sit on top of your crown, leaving your round face looking more defined and bold. The style might take a while to create, and a good hairspray is needed to keep the hair intact.
Straight, casual bright
This style, much like the other styles, is also perfect for round face shapes and perfectly accentuates your features, making them look more defined and sharp. The braids are swept to the side with some added on the top of your head before being pulled back for a stylish finish. This style requires longer hair to look more elegant and complete.
This style is perfect for medium length hair and is again, great for round faces. Simply weave a small portion of one side of your hair all the way to the back of your ear. Leave the hair on the other side of your face unbraided and in soft curls that complement your face.
A surly bob is perfect for this particular braid, and it is even possible to do the style with shorter hair. Longer hair might require more than one braid on your side to give an edgier look. Some hairspray can be used to give the hair more volume, and bobby pins can help you secure your hair at the back.
Round faces can be perfectly complemented with more volume and what better way to accomplish that than by styling your hair in thick box braids. Take care not to make them too thick as they can be a bit heavy. If you have shorter hair, you might need hair extensions to add more volume to your look. Box braids are best done by a professional who can ensure that they are even and secure.
There are plenty of hair braids that complement round faces and can sharpen your features. Not every braiding style works well on round faces, and it is important to choose the best one so as not to drown your face or make your features look too rounded and awkward. But don’t be afraid to experiment so that you’ll know which style fits You best.
