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.

13. Messy Bob with Curtain Bangs. Definitely consider trying this short curly hairstyle to create a grunge look. Messy cuts are perfect for fine hair and round faces, and they look edgy and sexy. Absolutely phenomenal!

14. Chubby Face Short Thick Hair with Frenchy Flair. Falling below the cheekbones to avoid accentuating the widest part of the face, this French bob provides elongation with a deeply parted fringe and removes the hair bulk with thinned-out layers.

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. Razor-Cut Brunette Bob. One of the ways to create balance in short haircuts for round faces is by filling them with texture, and working through your hair with a razor handles the task perfectly well.

21. Straight-Hair Bob with Smokey Tips. Featuring dip-dyed ends and hitting a bit below the chin, this bob drags the face down while creating another focal point with the face-framing bangs defining the cheekbones.

22. Fluffy Bob with Blended Curtain Bangs. Both curtain bangs and a shaggy finish work great in short hairstyles for round faces, and you can opt for a softer look by asking for well-blended layers.

23. Shaggy Comb-Over Bob with Diagonal Bangs. Girls with thinner hair can arrive at a better lift for their strands and some extra height for their round faces just by switching to a deep side part.

24. Copper Bob with Flippy Ends. It wouldn’t hurt to add retro vibes to short-hair round-face hairstyles, for example, with the help of a volumizing blowout, sculptured curtain bangs, and playful flipped-out ends.

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. Choppy Lob with Full Bangs. While blunt bangs can reduce the length of a round face, this is not the case with a full-on fringe cut at a varying length, especially when coupled with choppy texture at the bottom.

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. Bouncy Bob with Off-Center Parting. Asymmetry is one of the pillars for creating flattering short haircuts for women with round faces, and combining it with bouncy textured ends is a good decision.

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. Textured Golden Blonde Bob with Airy Bangs. Curtain bangs are the key here, directing attention to the eyes rather than the cheeks, while the blunt ends play their part by giving a fuller look to the thin hair.

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. Center-Parted Short Haircut for a Round Face. Parting the hair in the middle is a smart move, as it places the focus higher and gives the face a more symmetrical feel, complemented by the angles inserted through the bangs.

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. Side-Swept Bixie with Highlights. The main idea behind double chin short hairstyles for round faces is to divert attention from the problem area, and the swoopy fringe makes the eyes travel from side to side on the top instead of going down.

39. Soft Blunt Bob with Face Framing. When choosing the right cut for your face shape, it all boils down to what you want to accentuate, like spotlighting the eyes with soft bangs or drawing attention to the bottom with textured ends.

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. Long Bob with High-Contrast Money Pieces. Along with texture and length, a color scheme makes a big difference in chubby-face short haircuts, which is perfectly illustrated by these blonde money-piece bits visually narrowing the round-shaped face.

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. Coral Bob with Choppy Face Frame. Nothing works for round faces better than multiple vertical lines, but this fancy coral pink cut with choppy layers galore adds some height on top of it.

49. Short Shullet with Silvery Highlights. This trendy hybrid of the shag and the mullet swaps length for height and emphasizes the lift with a bright panel of silver blonde.

50. Stacked and Feathered Chocolate Bob. Chubby-face short hairstyles can handsomely play with length by getting short layers in the back for a volumized crown and going below the chin in the front for better elongation.

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.
