Are Round Faces Attractive? How They Compare to Other Shapes

  • by Matt Phelps

"Your face is so round" could be a compliment or just a comment.

But what is a round face, anyway?

Do people find a round face attractive?

And if you're wondering if you can measure a person's facial attractiveness, the answer is yes.

It's a well-known fact that women like men with defined jaws.

People are always drawn to symmetrical faces for reasons we don't fully understand.

The quick math of judging beauty has long-lasting effects on the people you judge. 

But in this article, we'll go into more depth to talk about what a round face is, how common it is, its pros and cons, and how to make a round face attractive.



What Is A Round Face

You can identify the round face shape by a wide hairline and fullness below the cheekbones.

A round face shape is one where the length and width of the face are about the same.

The round face is different from others because it has soft features like a round jawline.

With this face shape, it's also harder to make different facial features stand out. 

Most of the time, the jaw is about the same size as the forehead.

Some people have round cheeks that make them look fuller.

It is also common for the hairline to make the face look rounder.

Even though a round face may be easy to spot, the best way to tell if someone has a round face is to measure it.

People with round faces may look younger, but some may also look heavier than they are.

Because of this, later in this post, I’ll recommend certain hairstyles to help make this face shape look slimmer and longer.

You can use hairstyles to make your face look longer.

There may also be some accessories that help with this.


Some unique features that set round faces apart are:

  • Smooth lines and soft curves
  • Full cheeks 
  • The cheekbones are the widest part of the face
  • The width of the face is about the same from the jaw to the forehead
  • Chin that is round and has few angles



How Common Is A Round Face?

Round faces are one of the most common face shapes in the world.

Your face is round when the height-to-width ratio is the same on both sides.

Most of your features are rounded and soft.

You likely have a round chin as well.

The widest part of your face is your cheeks, which gives it a round shape.



Pros And Cons Of A Round Face 


1. Round faces are youthful and considered angelic looking.

2. People with round faces are usually thought to be trustworthy.

3. Round faces are more attractive and don't need fillers or surgery to look good or catchy.

So, yes, round faces are more beautiful than any other shape.

4. People with rounder faces tend to age more slowly because as the face thins, flaws like wrinkles and loss of collagen become more noticeable.

5. Compared to other face shapes, round faces tend to age well because they store a lot of fat in the cheek area.

This can make you look younger than people who lose weight more quickly 




1. Men with round faces rarely have a chiseled jawline or strong cheekbones.

On the other hand, a face that is sharp and bony makes it look more masculine. Men prefer this.

2. It makes them look like kids, and if they aren't still kids, it just makes them look fat.

3. You also tend to look fatter in pictures than you are.

4. Round faces don't look good with short hair.

5. Women like men who have more defined facial structure.



How to Use Eyewear To Enhance A Round Face


It's up to you to decide what glasses look best on your round face.

You want your glasses to look good with your natural features and show off your style. 

After all, women find men who wear glasses to be more likable and attractive.

This is because glasses can make you look smart and confident, giving the impression of a more symmetrical face. 

Most people with round faces choose angular frames.

This is to make your softer, rounder features stand out and look more balanced.

People with round faces look great in bold, thick, full-rimmed frames with sharp lines.



The Best Haircuts For Men With Round Faces

Do you know that a specific haircut can balance your round face shape instead of making your jawline or cheekbones stand out?

Men with round faces need haircuts that make the face look slimmer, longer, and more like an angle. 

Since round faces don't have the balance of oval faces, the sharpness of square faces, or the pointy chin of heart-shaped faces, they need a good haircut to fill in the gaps.

Round faces look great with styles like faux hawks, undercuts, fades, quiffs, and pompadours.

Men with round faces should get a haircut with a mid or high fade on the back and sides and some length on top.

The goal is to make your face look longer with your hair, not wider.



How To Determine Your Face Shape


Even if you've read this whole article, you may still not know what face shape you have.

It can be a little hard if you've never thought about that before.

Even if you have, you might not know what face shape you have.

You might find it easier to figure out your face shape if you divide it into three parts.

Think about these things about your face to help you classify the shape:


The Widest Part

Think about whether the broadest part of your face is across your cheekbones, forehead, or jawline.

This measurement can tell you more about your face shape than just looking at your head as a whole.


The Lower Jaw

Look at how your jawline is shaped because that will tell you what face shape you have.

Think about how strong your jawline is and how your chin looks.


How Long

This is a simple thing to think about when figuring out your face shape.

The length of your head is important, from your forehead to your chin.

You don't need to know the exact size.

Just look at your face to tell if it's long, short, or right in the middle.




I think the same number of people find each face shape to be the most attractive.

Remember that beauty can come in many forms.

Get in shape and experiment with new hairdos to find the ones that complement your features.

A round face won't keep you from finding a partner.

As long as everything else about you is fine, you're fine.

What makes a person attractive varies from person to person.

It doesn't matter what shape your face is.

Symmetry is everything.
