My suggestion to Mary was to get long, sideswept bangs, which would balance out her high forehead (I have one and bangs were a lifesaver to me). I also recommended cutting in layers. Layers tend to flatter every face shape, including a round one. Without knowing what type of hair she has (coarse, curly or thin), it's hard to give more advice. I also suggested she check out my photo gallery of flattering haircuts for round faces. Perhaps Ellen Barkin's cut shown at left would be good for her. It's sleek and sophisticated. If she has coarser hair, I like the playful look to Lisa Rinna's cut.
