First — how to know if have a round face: If your face is about as wide as it is long, you fall into this category, along with Kirsten Dunst, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Emma Stone. Make the most of your face shape by following their lead and choosing the most flattering cut.

If you’ve got a round face, don’t be afraid to pursue the pixie in the footsteps of Ginnifer Goodwin. Her pixie cut is short without being masculine, and her piecey bangs add dimension and definition to her round face. Keep this ‘do soft and simple for a romantic, feminine vibe.
