1. Round Shaped Face
You can inspiration from Alia Bhatt, Emma Stone, Shilpa Shetty or Aishwarya Rai for styling your hair, as they also have round shaped face cut. A well-defined pixie cut or layered bangs are the best options that you can opt for to accentuate your cheekbones and jawline better. Long and side-swept are also other options that you can go for.

Make your style icon to Kareena Kapoor, Angelina Jolie, Megan Fox, or Preity Zinta, to get the best suitable hairstyles for any occasion you want. Long bob or soft waves while keeping the length long is a good idea to follow for the haircut, and middle parting will add length to your face.
Avoid getting high ponytails or one-length bob or even blunt bangs.

To get more of an angular look, you can opt for side swept, that will make your face look balanced, or you can go for curly waves right below the chin to add width.
Avoid doing heavy hairdos at the crown of your head, that will only add more width to your face from upper side, and also blunt fringes.
5. Long Shaped Face

Avoid center parting or too long plain straight hair, this will only add more length to your face.
