If you have a round face, bottleneck bangs will add softness to your facial features. They are quite similar to curtain bangs, and their shape resembles a bottleneck, hence the name. They are slim and short in the middle, longest at the line of the cheekbones and curve around your eyes, greatly framing the face. To make your bottleneck bangs look their best, dry your hair with a blow dry brush and preserve the shape with a soft hairspray.

Thick side-swept bangs are also suitable for a round face shape. They are a very popular choice among women who have a round face with chubbier cheeks and softer edges. Side-swept bangs can make your face look longer than it is and create the illusion of a more oval shape.
