French braids can never really go out of fashion- neat or messy, they save your day when your hair is throwing some major tantrums. You can rock this braid with every kind of outfit, and they look pretty and sophisticated. It doesn’t accentuate the roundness of your face.

11. The Slicked-High Pony
The slicked high pony- with or without bangs (layers and bangs work nicely for a round face) look undeniably good. Anyone can pull off this hairstyle with minimal efforts. It looks decent, trendy, and to make your pony hair as well as those baby hair stay in place, use a little hair gel or spray. Make sure you don’t overdo it.

Fishtail braids may look intimidating, but they are pretty easy to achieve. Divide your hair into equal parts. Take a strand from the first part and pass it on to the second side and then take a strand from the second side and pass it on to the first side. Keep doing it until you reach the end. Make a side part on round face and make it slimmer.
ProTip: Take thinner strands, it will look amazing and neat.
13. Half Updo
The half-updo, also known as the the boho hairstyle is perfect for those long, thick hair and little wavy or soft curls. It’s basically for those days on which you can’t decide whether to have your hair down or to tie them up. Looks very stylish and amazing on indian girls with round faces.
