Sassy Short Hairstyles for Round Faces

Cute Short Hairstyles for Round Faces

Not all cute short hairstyles suit round faces. However, we have compiled a list of some of the most popular short hairstyles for round faces. With the summer fast approaching, we thought it was high time to include a list of short haircuts for women. The pixie cut is one of the most popular short hairstyles for round faces, but there are quite a few stylish short haircuts for women that are considered trendy. The bob has many different variations and is a really cute short haircut.


Short haircuts for women are most easily created with a blow dryer and styling gel or mousse. Short hairstyles for round faces should not cover your ears. A round face will look much thinner if your bangs are asymmetrically styled to one side or the other. For an edgy, cute short haircut, you can move your fingers through your hair, adding vertical lines.

It is also true that hairstyles with rounded edges or shapes don’t work well for round faces. If you want a really cute short hairstyle for round faces, you should have random tresses and defining edges. This results in an adorable, chic look which will compliment your face shape.

If you want a look that’s ultra-charming, go for a shorter retro style such as a short bob with combed finger waves. You can also part your hair to the side with wavy bangs if you prefer a more dramatic look, which is perfect for theme parties and special events.

A cute short hairstyle for round faces should be above the forehead to a nice height with wispy light bangs. You can experiment with asymmetrical cuts, textures and braids for a cute and playful look.
