Elizabeth Olsen: hairstyles for round faces

by Kathy Saunders -

Elizabeth Olsen is probably best known as being the little sister of twins Mary-Kate and Ashley, but this young actress is quickly establishing herself as a Hollywood star. Olsen shares more than just a last name and acting jobs with her older sisters, she has the same round face shape , too! Knowing your face shape is a huge asset to choosing the right haircut, and we've got some great tips for you to consider before you next head to the salon.

People often think round faces = chubby cheeks, but that isn't always the case. Though it's true that round faces are equally as long as they are wide, a wide face doesn't mean you can't have killer cheekbones. Just look at Elizabeth, or fellow round-faced ladies Ginnifer Goodwin and Kirsten Dunst .

If you have a round-shaped face, the best thing you can do is draw attention to the top of your head. You can do this by creating a side part if you have long hair, or keeping the volume at the top if you have short hair . Straight hair parted in the center can help streamline the face shape and make it appear slimmer. If you opt for layers, make sure they aren't cut any shorter than chin length (otherwise it can draw attention to the widest part of your face).

We love Elizabeth's center part and gentle waves . Her hair length makes her face appear longer and the coloring, which seems to lighten toward the ends, draws the eye downward.

There you have it! Stay tuned for more hairstyle tips and tricks for each face shape.
