The best hairstyles for fat faces and double chins offer styles that break up the roundness and fullness of the face. The layers and the silhouette of the cut create an illusion of a more elongated face shape. If you’re looking for a new look that would flatter your facial features, you’re in the right place!
Professional stylist Molly G from Mission, TX, shares her #1 tip for women with double chins.
“My advice is to add some face-framing layers to your haircut. This technique will draw attention towards your hair rather than your chin,” she states.
Moreover, a layered cut provides hair the volume and texture needed while removing extra weight!
If you have curly hair, find a stylist proficient in cutting such hair type and texture. “It could go wrong if not cut the proper way. If too much tension is placed on the curls, the result would be shorter than expected,” Molly explains.
Consult your stylist to help you understand whether your preferred cut works for you. Ask about the upkeep.
Know how much effort you need to put in when styling in the morning. It would also be helpful to get some product recommendations to maintain the style.
There are a lot of cuts and styles that are sure to convince you to change your look now. Below are the images of the trendiest haircuts for double chins to inspire you!
#1: Chic Layered Pixie
Rock a chic layered pixie if you’re tired of dealing with the weight of your hair and how long it takes to style in the mornings. This haircut gives the illusion of more fullness without all the weight! Get ready to embrace your natural hair and show off your beautiful face. A layered pixie is one of the most flattering haircuts for women with oval, square, or heart-shaped faces and looks great with all hair types.
#2: Sassy Long Cut for Thin Hair
If you have thin hair, a sassy long cut would be a flattering solution. We layer the hair so that it looks longer without making it thin. Adding a fringe boosts fullness and texture around your face. This helps balance out the long hair so it doesn’t make your face look drained. You should ask a professional stylist about a suitable texture spray to finish off this look.
#3: Razor Cut Shaggy Wolf Cut
If you want a new look, think about getting a cut known as a razor cut shaggy wolf cut. This hairstyle can completely change how your face looks, giving it a sultry, edgy vibe.
#4: Middle Parted and Chest-Length Blonde Hair
A chest-length cut for your blonde, middle-parted hair can provide a trendy look. This hairstyle requires minimal effort to style and can naturally fall into place.
#5: Rezo Cut Thick and Voluminous Curls
If you want to enhance your natural curls or change your current ones, consider a haircut with thick and voluminous curls. This haircut provides curls in a round, afro-like shape, ideal for anyone wanting to emphasize their hair’s volume and shape. Rather than using curl gels or creams, use a mousse to seal your ringlets and add bounce to your hair. Seek help from a curl specialist, one who knows various curl patterns.
#6: Cute Long Pixie with Long Bangs
The cute long pixie with long bangs is a flattering haircut option for women with a double chin. This hairstyle features a longer length on top, allowing versatility in styling and the creation of face-framing layers. The long bangs help draw attention away from the double chin. This haircut suits women with straight or slightly wavy hair textures the best. To style, apply a volumizing mousse to damp hair and blow dry with a round brush to add lift and volume. Finish with a light-hold hairspray to keep the style in place throughout the day.
#7: Chest-Length Blonde Hair and a Middle Part
A good cut and color option for a round face would be chest-length hair with blonde color and a middle part. Medium cuts for round faces add length to the face. Adding a lighter color, such as blonde, imparts a light and soft appearance to the hair.
#8: Effortless Waves with Balayage
Try styling your hair with effortless waves with your balayage to spice things up. Balayage adds a beautiful dimension to the hair and enhances the natural flow of the waves. The best way to style is to loosely curl sections of hair with a large barrel curling iron. Then, finish with a texturizing spray or sea salt spray. I recommend AIIR Professional’s Texture Aiir.
#9: Beige Blonde Bob for Thick Hair
Try doing something like this bob haircut with beige blonde if you have thick, dark hair. The short layers remove unwanted bulk in the hair, and the color adds a lot of softness overall. This is another example of beautiful short hairstyles for black women.
#10: Bixie Cut for Thin Hair
Give your hair some shape and body with a short bixie cut. If you are struggling with limp hair, get disconnected crown layers. They will give you fullness without taking away the weight from the perimeter. Keeping a blunt perimeter with fine hair creates a fuller appearance. Style with some looser waves for extra body and movement.
#11: Long Copper Layers
Long copper layers are a great option for women with glasses who want a flattering and fresh new look. The layers add dimension and movement. The copper tone brings warmth and richness to the hair. The length is long enough to maintain the overall softness of the look while still framing the face. This helps to draw attention away from any insecurities. To style, I recommend using a texturizing spray on damp hair and a round brush to blow-dry with a gentle curve at the ends. This will enhance the layers and add a slight bend to the hair. Wear your hair with a light-hold hairspray that will keep the style in place without weighing it down.
#12: Peaked Framing Bangs
Try to achieve a bold and statement-making look when it comes to peaked-framing bangs. These bangs are designed to create a dramatic and angular frame around the face. They draw attention to your features. To achieve the effect, investing in a stylist who can cut and shape the bangs to suit your face shape is recommended. Peaked framing bangs can be customized to be shorter or longer. It just depends on your preference. And they can complement a variety of hairstyles, from short to long.
#13: Messy Mid-Length Chop with a Middle Part
For women with double chins, a messy mid-length chop with a middle part can be a great option. This cut has soft layers and choppy ends to add texture and volume that flatters the face shape. The middle part creates a slimming effect. This is a low-maintenance cut that works for all hair types. To style, apply a texturizing spray or light-hold mousse to damp hair. Then, scrunch with your fingers and allow to air dry for the best-tousled look. Ask about this versatile and effortless look that can be dressed up or down for any occasion.
#14: Loose Waves + Kinky Coils
The best thing you can do for your face shape is to embrace texture. The advantages of loose waves and kinky coils are that they shine when styled. And this helps to compliment your face.
#15: Effortlessly Cool French Bob
Opt for an effortlessly cool French bob. If you want to give your fine hair texture some body and shape, try a French bob. If you have a round face shape, add curtain bottleneck bangs to balance your face. They will also bring attention to the eyes.
#16: Long Blonde Balayage Hairstyle
This long blonde balayage is a great option for a low-maintenance color. If you have long hair and want to, you can incorporate light and dark tones. Just ask for a look like this.
#17: Bob with Loose Waves
This beautiful bob with loose waves is a gorgeous hairstyle for any bridal event. If you have short hair and don’t know what to do with your style, consider loose, beachy waves to spruce up your bob. A 1-inch curling iron and a soft, flexible hairspray are the two products you’ll need to achieve this style. If you need help with volume, try a volume powder like Kevin Murphy’s Powder Puff for an instant lift.
#18: Thick Face-Framing Long Hairstyle
A long hairstyle gives you an instant lift and shape around the face and cheekbones. Consider lightening your heavy locks with extra face-framing layers if you have coarse hair. One of the most underrated things you can do for your face shape is bangs. Most people can wear bangs. Exploring the bang that works for your hair type and face shape is important.
#19: Extra Long Bangs on a Mid-Length Chop
Not all hairstyles are suited for a double chin, but extra-long bangs on a mid-length chop can be very flattering. Invest in the right cut tailored to your hair type and thickness. This will make all the difference. Ask your stylist for layers that start around the cheekbones. This will create a movement to draw attention away from the roundness of your face. Avoid blunt cuts; these cuts sit heavy on your cheeks as they will only accentuate them. Combining length with texture also helps. So consider adding natural curls or gentle waves with a curling iron or wand for dimension and body.
#20: Razor Cut Long Shaggy Hairstyle with Full Rounded Bangs
If you’re looking to avoid the appearance of a double chin, the best cut for you is a heavily layered framing shag. It will shape and disguise your neckline. The longer layers will help slim down wider parts of your face while keeping you looking chic. Use a volumizing mousse to lift your hair at the roots for styling. Blow dry with a round brush for added volume. Finish off by adding texture spray or paste for definition and soft movement in your locks!
#21: Long Brown Hair with a Center Part and Choppy Ends
If you want a cut to add shape and movement without removing your hair length, try razored long layers. When you do this cut, only use the razor to remove bulk from the ends. This will allow the hair to look bouncy and open. If you have a solid color, this will give the appearance of more dimension.
#22: Cutest Curly Bob
One of the best ways to make sense of your in-between length and density is to try styles like the curly bob. Consider the shape of your bob. Your stylist will ask you to gauge your style preference. Silhouettes like a bell, heart, and round are popular choices. Bangs are stylish add-ons. And they can grow out to curtain bangs and face framers once you’re ready to evolve the style.
#23: Short Wispy Bob
If you’re a woman with a shorter neck, the best illusional cut is a textured, angled bob. Ask for a more feathered end front on your length to slim your hair inward. This will give your face shape a more narrow appearance. A soft textured stack will also give you volume on top and elongate your neck.
#24: Modern Shoulder-Length Shag with Blonde Balayage
A shoulder-length shag with balayage is the perfect combo of relaxed and low-maintenance. And it still looks stylish and put together. The curtain bangs soften a round race and make it appear oval. You’ll want to style the curtain bangs with a round brush to achieve that swooping look. Finish with a light hairspray to prevent them from falling back into your face.
#25: Gray Asymmetrical A-Line Bob
Step out of your comfort zone with a gray asymmetrical a-line bob. A hairstyle with asymmetry is unique. It is a great way to make yourself stand out. It’s also one of the best styles to balance out round face shapes. The long bang can camouflage double chins, too. Cut your nape and side short for easy manageability, and let the longer side hang loose. An a-line bob will work well on most hair textures, so go for it.
#26: Cute Long Layered Cut with Curtain Bangs
A long layered cut with curtain bangs suits women of any age and looks great on all hair types. Keep in mind that this haircut does require some styling time to make the most of this hairstyle. You’ll have to get comfortable with a round brush and habitually blow-drying your hair to recreate this volume and shape. Use volumizing products and curve your hair away from your face with a round brush once your hair is 85% dry, as that is when your style will start to set into shape.
#27: Gorgeous Blonde Wavy Hair
Gorgeous blonde hair can be achieved in one of two ways. You can consult a salon professional to create this with your hair. It may require sessions to ensure the healthiest hair. If you need to pace yourself between visits, extensions are a second option to invest in. They work best with wavy hair, using texture to blend the varying lengths.
#28: Extra Long Extensions Makeover
Extensions have been taking over the social space. Before you sit down for them, consider the hair color that you will have at the same time. Because it’s an investment, you will want to do this for a while.
#29: Chin-Length Soft Brown Bob
A chin-length soft brown bob might be the cut you are searching for. In my opinion, chin-length bobs are perfect for camouflaging facial flaws. Make sure the length is below the chin, and the layering is long enough to surround your face. That will help your face appear slimmer. You should add a bit of wave with an iron for softness, but don’t add too much volume.
#30: Grey Blended Textured Bob
A grey blended textured bob is a classic for any age and face shape. The most effective way to blend your grey and not commit to the 3-week root touch-up is babylight highlights. Babylights are very thin weaves put into a foil. This creates a natural color that blends perfectly with your grey. Your hairstylist may suggest doing a full or a half. This will depend on where your natural grey starts and stops.
#31: Stunning Long Layers and Long Curtain Fringe
Long layers and long curtain fringe go hand in hand as one of the best hairstyles. Curtain fringe may seem like a new trend, but it’s about framing your face and adding personality to your cut. For the flipped ends look, use a round brush when blow drying. If a round brush and dryer at the same time are too much for you, try using hot rollers. Hot rollers will be placed on dry hair and let cool before removing. Your style will last for hours!
#32: Blonde Beach Waves on Medium-Length Hair
If you want your hair to look fresh and bright, try blonde beach waves on medium-length hair. Adding lots of texture to layers, the face frame softens the face and the overall cut. For these medium-length hairstyles for double chin, curl with iron or use your natural curl to get the ultimate beachy wave.
#33: Adorable Long Face-Framing Layers
Long layers are a great way to create the ideal face shape on round faces. For an even more elongating effect, try a middle part with swooping curtain bangs to frame your face even more.
#34: Long Tousled Waves for Heart-Shaped Faces with Double Chins
If you have a heart-shaped face with a double chin, consider long tousled waves. Adding tousled curls to your long tresses will give your hair volume and natural texture. Start by curling the front pieces of your hair away from your face, then alternating the curls towards your face with your next section, repeat alternating sections. Wait for your curls to cool down before combing them out to get that tousled appearance, and you will see why this long haircut for a double chin is a beloved go-to hairstyle.
#35: Swoopy Curtain Fringe and Tousled Curls
With shag hairstyles becoming wildly popular again, consider a swoopy curtain fringe and tousled curls the next time you go to your hair salon. Shorter layered lengths on top and around the crown will give your hair maximum volume. No matter your natural hair type, a shag hairstyle will automatically give your hair texture. Use a flat iron or curling iron to flip out the fringe, sprinkle in a root lifting powder, and spray a texture spray to finish off your style and give your hair infinite volume that’ll last all day and night.
#36: Flattering Long Shaggy Bob with a Heavy Fringe
Ask for a long shaggy bob with a heavy fringe if you have a round or square-shaped face. Style fringe forward when drying and slightly part so that the fringe slightly frames your face. Adding face-framing layers helps slim your face shape and accentuate your inner facial features, making a bob haircut for a double chin a very flattering haircut.
