Hairstyles for Women Over 50 With Round Face

Just because you are over 50 doesn’t mean that you have to look frumpy and boring. Today’s hairstyle trends have gotten better for older women and if you have a round face, there are several options available to you. You want to stay away from thick blunt bangs across the face because they put more attention on the round face, and tight curls should not be worn if you have a round face because it emphasizes your round cheeks and chin. Here are some good hairstyles for women over 50 with round face.

Best Hairstyles for Women Over 50 With Round Face

Fringe and Layered Hairstyles


These hairstyles are ideal for women with round faces over 50 because they add length to your face and these styles can be worn by older women. For example, a shag can be worn by older women with medium-length hair and round faces. The loose fringe look also suits round-faced women perfectly.

Loose Waves

Loose Waves

This is a style that you can fix yourself and the waves in the hairstyle complement your round face. You can also put highlights in the hairstyle for extra flair and with skinny curlers or rods, you will have beautiful waves within hours without having to see a stylist.

Short Bob

Short Bob

When you wear a bob as a round-faced woman, you don’t want the bob to go directly to your chin because this is not flattering to the face. Instead your bob should be cut slightly above the chin and cheeks so that the hairstyle accentuates your round face. The bob should also be styled with a part on the side rather than in the middle.

Pixie Cut

Pixie Cut

The pixie cut looks great on older women with round faces and the stylist would cut your hair in choppy layers near the side and top of your hair to create height and volume, which elongates a round face. The pixie cut looks good for all kinds of places you go such as work, school, social events and even for daily errands. Another benefit of the pixie cut is that it is low maintenance.



If you are attending a formal event, you can style your hair in a fancy up-do if you have long hair. For example, you can wear a French twist in your hair with an elegant hairpiece that is age appropriate. Another idea is to wear a partial cornrow with the top part of your hair in cornrows and the rest could be in an elegant high bun if you are an older woman of color with a round face.

Boy Cut


This is a good hairstyle for those with round faces and who are looking for a low maintenance hairstyle. The boy cut can also be styled in such a way that you will complement your round face, and it is styled with a little hair near the front with the back part a little shorter.

When you have a round face, you do not want to choose a hairstyle that does not flatter it but instead you want a style that accentuates its’ structure. These hairstyles are easy to maintain and you can fix some of these styles yourself if you are skilled in doing creative hairstyles. If you need assistance with choosing a good hairstyle that suits your face, visit your stylist because he can offer suggestions. Look for styles that are age appropriate but not too matronly because you still want to look fabulous for your age and express your self confidence to the world.
