To complement round faces, choose cuts that lengthen the face and neck. It is necessary to unload volume on the sides and provide more volume and body at the top, and if you want to wear bangs, wear them long and on the side. Hair stylists recommend midi and bob haircuts more for people with round faces. It is a shoulder-length mid-length bob with long layers that stylize the jawline or a length below the chin and long layers that stylize the jawline.
An asymmetrical, irregular cut that mixes hair of different lengths looks great on round faces. While a deep side parting with bangs swept to one side is perfect for creating the illusion of a slimmer, more elongated face.
Hence, we have gathered some bob hairstyle ideas for you all. Wait until you see these sleek and on-trend bob haircuts that help style the features if you think round faces need to look better with short hair.
1) A-line Bob Hairstyle
Say hello to the A-line bob, which is not new but has been reinvented. It is longer in the front than in the back, and the angle can be as subtle or dramatic as you like. Unlike the graduated or inverted bob, the A-line bob does not have stacked layers in the back. The best part is that this bob is exceptionally versatile. Let it skim the chin or hang down along the collarbone, and make it blunt or textured with layers. Wear it to complement your style, whether soft and classic or sharp and edgy.
2) Bob with Straight Bangs
The bob haircut with bangs is the ideal way to change your look and avoid your longer, classic mane because it always adds a modern yet elegant touch to your hair that is timeless. The ideal would be to wear it with rounded volume and at chin level, giving it a more groundbreaking point. You can wear it with a blunt fringe that frames the face because it provides the hair with a French air and will give us a lot of play when it comes to picking it up and combing it.
3) The Pixie Cut with a Twist
Given the popularity of these haircuts, hairstylists have revisited the most iconic styles, such as the bob and pixie cut, to adapt them to all types of faces and the desires of any woman. The combination of the previous two results in an amount starting to stand out this fall for its versatility and comfort. It’s called “a lob” because it’s longer than a pixie and allows you to shape your hair, but it doesn’t reach the length of a bob.
It is more akin to a bob in that it has long layers that fall at the level of the ears. This version has the distinct advantage of being styled in various ways due to its length. Straight bangs can be worn with them for a blunter look and to frame the eyes.
4) Bob with the Round Edges
This is the most structured version of the bob; it has no layers, no long bangs, and is distinguished by a wave in the direction of the face. It is ideal for slimming the face and lengthening the neck, so we recommend you try this trendy cut.
5) The Blunt Bob
Round faces require haircuts that add angularity and dimension, such as the blunt bob. What exactly is it? It has 100% straight and polished edges and falls below the chin, making it ideal for round faces when worn straight. Say yes to the blunt bob with an even-toned hair color or dye, and you’re on your way to a flattering look!
6) The Crystal Bob
The crystal bob, designed by the Kardashians’ hairstylists, is ideal for those who prefer glossy, shiny hair with no frizz. It can be worn straight, with a middle or side parting (straight), and with a lustrous oil to give it that ‘crystal’ effect. If you have an oval or round face, say yes to this haircut. This cut is similar to the round-edged bob, but it is layered from below in an A-line bob manner, making it unique.
7) The Bob with a Bowl Cut
It is adorned with a long fringe that runs the length of the upper sides and is very short on the lower sides and at the nape of the neck. It could be with a perfect square that hides fine hair or with more density. We can also mark the lower part more heavily, resulting in an undercut.
The bowl cut can be extended to make a face-framing bob with slightly rounded, inward-pointing ends. According to experts, this look is ideal for elongated, oval, or round faces that are not too small or square.
8) The Unique Umbrella Bob
Rihanna looked stunning in this sexy concave bob cut or the umbrella bob with very tapered pieces that fell towards her forehead. This hairstyle is appealing due to its nature.

9) Bob with Choppy and Curly Ends
Curls aren’t limited to long hair. Curl your straight hair to take a break from straight, shiny hair. Wrap a section of hair around a curling iron with a small barrel for three to five seconds or until you achieve the desired curl. Curl the hair one at a time, finishing with hairspray to keep the curls in place. Add a curly choppy bob to your everyday look. You can wear this hairstyle to work and look stylish with your black jacket and pants.
Bob is not always about straight hair, so style your curly hair to achieve this flattering, choppy, curly bob.

17) A Mid-length Bob Hairstyle
Kendall’s hair proves that small detail can completely transform your appearance. Make a super-straight middle part for your long bob.
This style is popular among celebrities because it falls strictly between the chin and the collarbone. The lob cut makes the hair look voluminous and healthy. Plus, this cut flatters and frames the face. Bob is not just about chin-length and medium hair.
18) The Inverted Bob Cut
The inverted bob is typically worn as seen on Jennifer Lopez, with a middle parting and long front strands, but you can add a fringe for a more daring and unique look or wear the parting to the side. The options are limitless.
This haircut is ideal for women who want to stylize their faces, as it plays with verticality by having longer front strands, but it is most popular among women with thin hair. A half bob with asymmetrical layers and a good part will add volume and movement to your hair. A good trick is to apply a little dry shampoo to the roots to lift them slightly.
The highlights on the bob look great because the color gradient and contrast add movement and dimension to the mane. Such as caramel highlights on a brunette are stunning.
19) The Shaved Ice-blonde Bob
Another idea is one of those who bravely cut their hair and nailed one of the hottest short hairstyles of 2022. It’s a shaved ice blonde, a color that works well with ‘pixie’ haircuts and round faces to soften the features. Shave the sides for a unique look and get into the year’s hottest trend.
