Besides makeup, your hair is a huge factor in slimming down your face. Plus, what's good about relying on your locks for a more chiseled face, is that you can be more confident to face the world sans bronzers or thick, Kardashian 'kontouring' techniques. See our suggestions below:

1. Add long layers

When your stylist creates layers that frame your face,a strong jawline looks softer, and the cheeks less chubby. A blunt cut only magnifies the wideness of the face. Take for example, Selena Gomez—her square face still looks fab thanks to her lush, carefully layered, long locks.


2. Try highlights

Up for a new hair color? Ask for a fairly new technique called hair contouring (Hollywood celebs started doing this in 2015) which relies on strategic placement of hair color to downplay a wide face.

I was born with a round face shape—my plump cheeks and cheekbones cannot be tamed! Jerome Secjadas of Basement Salon SM Aura played with different tones of blonde and ashy brown L'Oreal Professionel hair color to contour my hair. My verdict: I still can't believe I own this celeb-worthy, balayage, face-slimming 'do. And if you're worried about damage caused by hair color and bleaching, ask for a Smartbond additive. This magical potion keeps your hair follicles strong and intact during the hair coloring treatment.

Also, you don't need to have extremely light shades to enjoy this. You can get this service with a conservative color palette like what Shamcey Supsup has:

3. Do a half-up 'do

If you don't want to do something drastic to your hair, putting it up in a half pony will do. Just remember to add volume to the crown (top section of the head) and let a few strands of hair fall on the sides of the face to create vertical length.



4. Aim high

When you prefer a total updo, a glam high ponytail or a top knot can pull the cheeks upwards, exposing the angles of your cheekbones.


5. Get side-swept bangs

Side-swept bangs can lengthen your face. The fringe gracefully falls on your temples, cheekbones, and cheeks, creating a subtle, vertical distraction on your round face.
