The Cut #1: Go for a gamine look with spiky layers like a crown as pictured on Ginnifer Goodwin. Once you go short all the way, you’ll realize that the petite pixie can add height, lengthen your face and bring out your eyes – perfect for downplaying the roundedness!

The Cut #2: Alternatively, opt for an asymmetrical bob that can add length and give you more depth to your round face. It’s good to stay away from a bob or cut that’s a single length or cut bluntly. As seen on Ashanti, it’ll make your eyes and cheekbones pop!
