5 hairstyles that makes you look thinner

Make a deep side part

Sleek, side-swept bangs like Selena Gomez's make fuller faces look less round and create a diagonal line that really brings out your cheekbones. (The most face-flattering part is aligned with the arch of your brow.)

Get layered

Take a cue from Cameron Diaz and opt for layers to soften a round or square face and add movement to hair. Angled face-framing pieces cut below your jawline slim your face and help add definition to the bone structure, especially with a round face, and and camouflage a double chin.

Volumize on top

Build up volume on top a la Vanessa Hudgens. Adding height at the crown slims by drawing the eye upward thus make a round face appear oval. For extra volume, spray damp hair with volumizer and blow-dry with a large round brush.

Style it long -and straight

Wearing your hair long and straight elongates your physique and makes your face look slimmer overall. The key is to avoid extra volume around the cheeks (the fullest part of the face). Follow Miley Cyrus' lead and add dimension to your tresses with subtle highlights.

Go short with longer bangs

Short styles can be very flattering for round faces. Case in point: Ginnifer Goodwin's wavy chin-length bob. Just keep the front strands longer and parted on the side. Avoid blunt ends near the cheeks which will emphasize the width to the face.
