Cosmetic cures

I am a 19-year-old woman with a round face, a medium frame and fair complexion. Could you please suggest a haircut that will suit me and make me look stylish and attractive?

Your best bet would be those hairstyles that fall right below your chin or add a little volume on top. Soft graduated layers are also a great option for you because they will make your face appear slimmer and help to remove bulk and weight from the sides Bangs are flattering but it is better to keep them long or side swept. Go for wispy and tapered ends, these help to de-emphasise the roundness of your face.

Avoid:

One length, blunt cuts if you have short hair. These only emphasise your round face.

Centre parting can make the face too round.

Straight, full bangs.

Try:

Hairstyles with fullness and height at the crown.

Layering the top of the hair to achieve fullness and keeping the rest of the cut relatively close to the face.
