7. Messy Bob with Subtle Highlights. This trendy hairstyle is one of the most popular short haircuts for women with round faces these days. It adds a cool-girl touch to your look, while highlights freshen your natural hair color.

8. Chin-Length Bob with Highlights. Black is always a good hair color for those who have a round face. It makes you look thinner and frames your face nicely, especially if you opt for a peek-a-boo hairstyle.

9. Messy Chin-Length Bob with Wispy Bangs. Short hair for a chubby face is a savior if cut in the right length and flattering shape. This time the stylist shows us how pretty a short French bob can look with a round face and glasses. The messiness is created with a wave-defining cream. C’est magnifique!

10. Messy Pixie with Piece-y Bangs. Make a note of piece-y short haircuts for round faces, as bits of haphazardly separated hair scattered across the head bring some sharpness to counteract the excess chubbiness.

11. Low-Maintenance Bob Haircut with a Fringe. Bobs are seen everywhere in 2024 and we don’t believe you have never tried one. If you are a bob-cut lover, time to opt for trendy rounder shapes. However, fuller figure short hairstyles don’t like too much volume, so be careful with styling.

12. Pixie Bob for Round Chubby Faces. Contrary to popular belief, short hair for a round face looks gorgeous, diverting attention from double chins or other insecurities you may have. The right short pixie bob visually elongates your face.

15. Layered Textured Bob with Parted Bangs. If you’re looking for a longer hairstyle for a round face to look slim, go for this sweet, romantic beach look. Add layers and highlights to create texture and volume and cover your chubby cheeks.

16. Black Choppy Haircut. Asian girls with round faces can always pick a razored bob with swept over bangs.

17. Comb-Over Pixie. Among all the short hairstyles for round faces, edgy pixie cuts are probably the most flattering ones. Diagonal bangs and a slightly tousled top section can visually change your face shape, narrowing and elongating it.

18. Textured Long Bob for Round Faces. This deep heavy fringe creates an uninterrupted flow of hair from the very crown, thus maximizing the height, while its choppy finish debulks the hair and chimes well with the overall texture.

19. Inverted Ombre Bob. Get a fabulous look with a cool bob that’s longer in the front. If you want to make it look more stylish, add some highlights to the ends.

20. Long Top Short Sides Hair. Partially shaved haircuts can suit both skinny girls and ladies with a fuller figure. Don’t be afraid to experiment with hair colors, or go for the elegant black.

21. Long Pixie with Bangs. Struggling to find a haircut for round chubby face? This pixie haircut should easily do the trick.

22. Edgy Pixie Cut for Round Faces. Modern chubby face short curly hairstyles include a lot of pretty crops with shaved sides. So, if you are hesitating between a long pixie cut and an undercut, choose something in-between where the top is longer, and the sides are very short. This pixie cut will look good on plus-size women too, as it elongates the face and shifts the focus from chubby cheeks to beautiful curls.

23. Pixie with Extra Long Bangs. Grow out your bangs long, flowing down one side and try a gray ombre. Keep your edges razored for a more dramatic appearance.

24. Modern Edgy Bob Haircut. When we talk about short hair for round faces, we mean all lengths from 0.125 inches to neck-length, which is around 10-12 inches. What options do we have then? Buzz cuts, undercuts, pixies, pixie bobs, mullets, and bobs. The latter are the most universal. The shape of your bob depends on your facial features.

25. Round Face Pixie Cut. Boyish cuts work great as short hairstyles for a chubby face, too. Add a piece-y fringe, tousle the top, and you’re ready to rock your hot summer hair!

26. Dark Turquoise Highlights. Don’t be afraid to play with your favorite colors if you have nice thick hair.

27. Rounded Bob with Off-Center Parting. Hairstylists recommend off-centered short hairstyles for round faces since such a part adds some asymmetry and edge to a cut, but you need to have enough lift at the roots, for example, with the hair weight released by layering.

28. Low-Maintenance Shaggy Bixie. With messiness embedded into this intensively layered and razor-cut shag, you can get all the necessary angles and added volume at the top by applying a dab of styling mousse and letting the hair air-dry.

29. Blunt Cut Short Thick Hair. This is the longest bob version that belongs to the short hairstyles for round faces. What’s so special about it? What makes it flattering for round faces? The oblong shape, off-center part, root tapping, and blunt ends do the trick. Works best for thicker hair types. Otherwise, you will need to create this volume with styling.

30. Seriously Blonde Angled Bob. This is a great example of polished short hair for round faces since an A-line bob grows longer towards the front, which results in a lifted crown and a visually elongated face.

31. Layered Cut with Side Bangs. Side-swept bangs work well with chubby face short hairstyles because they create a bend diverting attention away from the symmetry of a bit plumper facial features.

32. Pixie with Super Short Bangs. Who says a short haircut isn’t sexy? Look at this fabulous Audrey Hepburn pixie hairstyle! It gives such an elegant touch!

33. Short Bob Opening Up the Face. It’s not true that chubby face short haircuts should hide your bone structure to camouflage the wideness — you can celebrate your face shape and best features by balancing the look, for example, with a lifted side fringe.

34. Short Choppy Hairstyle. It’s all about framing! Your light choppy bangs that start up at the crown are another way to elongate your round face.

35. Mauve and Blonde Highlights. OMG! What a spectacular transformation! This image is proof that short hair can make you look even more stylish.

36. Sunny Red Bob with Curtain Bangs. Here we have a nicely textured crop complemented with subtly layered side pieces and a set of piece-y bangs grazing the brows and going a bit longer toward the temples.

37. Highlighted Feathered Crop. This is a pixie haircut done right! Embrace a soft creamy blonde balayage and style long strands in different directions. You’ll get a pretty stylish look.

38. Jagged Short Cut. Want a Hollywood diva look? Short pixie hair with layers and choppy bangs is the best decision you can make.

39. Feathery Lob with Side Parting. Adding a touch of asymmetry to short hair for a chubby face is always a good move, but you will arrive at an even more flattering style if pairing a side part with a longer length.

40. Tousled Extended Bob. These before and after pictures provide visibility into stunning transformations you can achieve by swapping a long yet dull hairstyle for a nicely textured and flatteringly angular bob like that.

41. Dense Pixie with Defined Bangs. Ginnifer Goodwin gave us a good lesson about edgy pixie cuts for round faces, and this lady does a great job of sporting a similar crop with a fringe somewhat swept to one side.

42. Wolf Cut with a Pop of Blue. While the shaggy nature of this wolf cut works wonders with the face roundness by breaking it up, the choppy layers around the chin and jawline help to soften the facial contour.

43. Short Wavy Shag. Round-faced girls with wavy to curly hair should consider a choppy crop like this for the height it gives on the crown and the movement it creates throughout the perimeter.

44. Silver Blue Root Fade for Bob. This sleek jaw-length bob will work for round faces because it is angled to the front and creates an asymmetry thanks to the side parting, not to mention the bold color directing attention to the top.

45. Razored Bob with Chocolate Balayage. As we said before, tight curls are not your thing if you have a round face shape. Try some loose, negligent waves, and your final look will be incredibly beautiful.

46. Fairly Blunt Bob with Curtain Bangs. A one-length crop with blunt ends can be a better option for girls with fine hair, the more so as you can get a slimming effect with a tapered soft fringe cutting into the sides.

47. Undone Bob with Textured Ends. You might be surprised to learn that this cut is also basically blunt, with only a few layers added for face framing and the ends point cut to infuse some texture.

48. Wavy Choppy Haircut. If you want to make your face appear thinner, go for a razored bob with loose, barely there waves.

49. Chubby Face Long Pixie Cut in Fierce Red. This longer pixie version comes with a stunning lift at the top and plenty of bends in the front to visually stretch and slim the bone structure.

50. Blonde Layered Pixie Cut. Whether your hair is shorter or longer, if your face is round, layers should be your best friend.

Based on the gallery above, choppy pixie cuts and angled bobs are the best short hairstyles for round faces. Remember also that hair colors play an essential role in your appearance, so be sure you pick a color that suits your skin tone, eyes, but also your personality.
