Hairstyles That Make You Look Thinner

making your hair look thinnerNot all of us are blessed with slim, delicate faces. Some have slightly rounder faces. The good news is that you don’t need to book a facelift just to make your face look thinner. Choosing the right haircut can slim your features and give the illusion of being thinner.

Turn your face from plump and round to long and slender with these gorgeous hairstyles.


Adding layers to your hair is an easy way to elongate a round face. Get your stylist to frame your face with various lengths of layers. Long layers balance the weight of your hair and make your face thinner and longer. This is also recommended for those with flat and fine hair since it adds volume and creates movement.

Soft waves

We all love straight hair, but it’s not the best hairstyle for women with round or chubby face. Why? It’s because it can make your face appear wider. Tight curls should be avoided as well. You want long, loose waves that are curled away from the face.

Side bangs

If you have a round face, it is best to avoid straight, heavy bangs. Blunt bangs draw a line across your face, making it wider and shorter. Side bangs will be much more flattering as they draw attention away from your face.

High bun

High buns are a great hairstyle for women with round face. Piling your hair on top of your head brings the attention upward, creating an illusion of a longer, slimmer face.


Adding highlights will brighten up your face and give it a younger, thinner look. Obviously, we’re not talking about putting hot pink streaks in your hair, but some natural highlights.

Highlights create shading and mimic stripes, which can be slimming. Think vertical stripes on slacks or a dress.
