What haircut to avoid when you are plus size?
Are you curvy with a round or oval face? Like any other person, you must take this into account and adapt your haircut to your body in order to visually refine your look why not make some years disappear from your face. Still, women with round faces have a very big advantage. Time marks their faces much less than the others! You should be proud of it! To emphasize the natural beauty that you have, make sure to avoid the following hairstyles, especially at the age of 50 or older.
Long straight hair
Contrary to what you might think, it won’t make you look thinner or taller. Not only is it boring, but it makes you look untidy. To be fashionable, elegant and really feminine, it is better to shorten the lengths, so that they reach your chest (at the most) and add layers. There is no need to opt for the shaggy haircut shown in the photo above if you don’t like it. The Brachel cut or the “V” shaped haircut are great options in this case.
Bangs are not a curtain you can hide behind and leaving them too stiff will only make things worse. In fact, it will further accentuate your curves.
Here is another type of bangs that you should definitely avoid. Straight bangs won’t make your face look squarer, but they will emphasize your cheeks. Replace it with asymmetrical bangs suitable for women over 50.

Opt for a layered version! And the end result? A modern and airy hairstyle that rejuvenates and adds volume to fine, thinning hair.
