Round face men tend to have a striking and attractive posture that is easy to notice, and most of the time, they are the men with the best jawline. All the attractiveness of round-faced men can sometimes be a problem if they don't get the right haircut.

Due to the shape of the head, round-faced men usually find it hard to decide on a hairstyle because whichever hairstyle they pick will determine whether their face will come out looking puffy or not. Therefore, picking the best and right hairstyle for men with round faces is very important. Read the article to know a few hairstyles you can rock as a round-faced man.

How to identify if you have a round face

Many people ask themselves, "is my face round?'' and sometimes, we bother our friends by asking them to tell us whether their face is round or not. But do you know that there is an easy way of determining whether your face shape is round with just a few steps? Dig into these steps and find out if you have a round face. 

Stand in front of a mirror and check your face holding a tape measure. Measure which part of your face is the widest. If your cheekbones are the widest, you most likely have a round face or heart face.

Check the jawline. Most people with round faces have a striking jawline. If you have a round face, your jawline will mostly be short and a bit round, unlike a heart face with a narrow jawline.

Measure the length and width of your face. From the tip of your chin up to the middle of your hairline, measure the length and then measure from the right side to the left side of your cheeks. If the width of your face is longer than the length of your face, you have a round face.
