3 Hairstyles for a Slimmer-Looking Face We've narrowed down your next haircut for you.

Deciding on getting a new 'do or getting your hair chopped can get a little tricky at times. This is mostly because of the doubt that comes with trying a new hairstyle or new length and how it can look. Even with the fact that hair grows, we know just how a simple cut can change everything from your daily routine down to your final look. So here, we'll share with you the three hairstyles that will not only look great on all face shapes but will also slim down your face.

1. The Lob

Get a lob that falls right below the jawline because it will frame your face perfectly and sculpt it for a slimmer appearance. If you want something shorter, make sure to stick just by your chin and opt for more angular cuts.

2. Long Layers

Sporting long layers can make a round face look longer while softening the edges to slim down your face. Just make sure that the volume is still mostly towards the ends and not by the side of your face. And lastly, you can opt to go with more "shaggy" layers if you want to keep your tresses extra long.

3. Side-Swept Bangs

Whether you have a lob or long layers, you can easily sport side-swept bangs to elongate your face. Just remember to have them cut not shorter than halfway down your nose and opt for more shattered ends. This hairstyle puts the focus more on your pretty eyes, making it less about your actual face shape.

These are just suggestions and what matters is still how a haircut makes you feel and if it suits your personality and personal style! So always pick what you like best and be confident in your choices.
