Has it ever happened that you walked into a salon and requested the hairstylist to “make you look thinner”? Didn’t you feel like the most stupid person requesting something even more stupid? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there! But the truth is that there are ways and hairstyles that can actually make you look much slimmer than you are! Yay!
Here are some hairstyles that slim those chubby cheeks instantly!
Highlights: A splash of bright or contrasting colour can give you an instant slimming effect. Consider getting highlights in warm and flattering colours (not hot pink or electric blue!). Natural brown, golden and deep burgundy highlights suit almost all complexions.
Wispy bangs: Heavy and blunt bangs make your face look rounder because they completely hide your forehead. Instead, opt for wispy bangs or a light fringe that are shorter in the center of your forehead and longer towards the eyebrows and temples.
Layers: Layers can also make you look much slimmer. Ask the hairstylist to give you a good set of layers that frame your face well and flatter your best features.
Side part: Most hairstylists urge you to go with your natural part, which is where your hair falls on its own. But if you want to slim your face, go with a side part. Round and heart shaped faces have a broad forehead which causes the face to look chubby. Cover half the forehead in side-swept bangs and voila! No more fluff!
Asymmetrical bob: The trick is to play with the shape of your face. Hairstyles like the asymmetrical bob cut (which has shorter hair at the back and longer hair as it comes to the front) can make your face look thin. But don’t go for the conventional bob else you’ll only highlight your chubby cheeks!
Long hair: If you want to have a slimming effect on your face, hair experts suggest going long. Longer hair will make your face look slimmer because it elongates the face more in comparison with shorter styles.
High updo: A vertical updo brings attention upwards camouflaging your baby fat and adding length to the face.
