• This medium-length cut on Kirsten Dunst works wonderfully for a round face because the layers are chin-length and longer. Avoid pieces that hit at the cheekbones, which can add bulk and make the face appear wider.

  • Super sleek, straight hair can help streamline a round face shape. This look works best when hair is below the shoulders, like Mila Kunis's.

  • Who says round face shapes can't wear short hair? Ginnifer Goodwin proves a pixie can be ultra flattering. Keep all the volume at the top—and none of the bulk on the sides—to create an oval shape.

  • While purple may not necessarily be your color of choice, a shaggy, long-layered cut like Kelly Osbourne's flatters the features.

  • Create flattering angles by parting your hair right above your eyebrow, like Amber Riley. The side-swept piece will create the illusion of a less round shape.

  • Long, side-swept bangs like Cameron Diaz's are your best option for fringe. Avoid bangs that hit above the eyebrows, which can shorten the face and make it appear rounder.

  • Piecey texture and a soft side part make Michelle Williams's crop ultra feminine, and the asymmetry helps to downplay roundness.

  • Long layers like Mindy Kaling's paired with a side part elongate the face, and the wavy texture is universally flattering.

  • While chin length bobs may accentuate roundness, a longer bob (or "lob") like Adele's works well with her face. Don't be afraid of volume; just make sure to balance out the shape by adding height at the crown.

  • The reason Kate Bosworth's look works? Wavy hair that bends right at the cheekbone helps define the features.
