Hairstyles for Women with Fat Faces and Double Chins
From short pixies to medium layers and long tresses, these hairstyles are ideal for adding some sharpness to a cute chubby face with double chins.
1. Curtain Bangs
Curtain bangs are ideal for concealing big cheeks while covering the forehead making a chubby face appear smarter. Pair them up with a short bob or opt for a medium or long haircut. Finish off by styling the mane using a round brush and hairdryer.
2. Top Knot
Top knot buns and ponytails are the go-to hairstyles on busy days. Slick back the tresses in a high ponytail and wrap them around in a knotted bun creating the vision of a much slimmer face. Top off with some hairspray. Can’t get any easier!
3. Asymmetrical Hairdo
Asymmetrical hairstyles are ideal for taking off the attention from faces. Ladies with double chins can recreate the look by asking for a short pixie with long side-swept bangs reaching their ears. The vibrant streaks of yellow, orange, and burgundy set the style on fire.
4. Classic Bob
Bobs never go out of style and look exceptional on chubby faces. Create some movement with soft layers near the ends and instead of going for blunt bangs cut straight across the forehead opt for an uneven wispy micro fringe for a chic finish.
5. Textured Crop + Baby Bangs
Looking for something low-maintenance? Check out this short textured crop with layers cut into the entire top and baby bangs at the front. Fat-faced ladies over 50 getting on in years can spice up their mane with a bright orange hair shade for a lively appeal.
6. Chic Lob
Lobs are the biggest hair trend of this year and work well with plump faces. Chop the tresses to sway above the shoulders with or without a fringe and add some body with subtle layers. This style is ideal for ladies with double chins and naturally wavy hair.
7. Baby Afro
You don’t even have to comb your hair daily as you will wake up with the perfect hairdo.
8. Low Ponytail
Why complicate? Those who don’t want to chop off their tresses can create the illusion of a longer face with a simple low ponytail.
Gather the strands near the base of the head and secure them in a hair tie. Tousle it on one shoulder and pull some chunks loose at the front. Done!
9. Short Choppy Bob
Young ladies can make a style statement by choosing choppy layers cutting off large chunks of hair unevenly to fall at jaw length resulting in a laid-back bob. Finish off the look with soft waves. Sexy and easy maintenance, what more to ask for?
10. Side Braid
Among other hairstyles, side braids are ideal to divert the focus from a double chin. Sweep the strands on one side and knit them into a French or fishtail braid, sparing the long strands at the front to be styled into vintage finger waves for a stylish appeal. Check out these braids for fat faces.
11. Angular Cut
Turn around some heads with a chic A-line bob/lob defined by a sharp angular cut with stacked layers at the back that gradually elongate towards the front to cover those chubby sides of the big cheeks imparting a smarter look to it. Experiment with some highlights and you won’t regret it!
12. Long Mane + Undercut
Undercuts work wonders when it comes to making fat faces appear slimmer. Buzz one side while the remaining long tresses fall at the front on the opposite side.
