The bangs here on Jennifer Hudson (who has a natural round face) perfectly complement her feminine, delicate features, according to LA hairstylist Andy LeCompte in InStyle magazine. The key to the right bangs on a round face is the cut. InStyle suggests you ask for a "graphic, curved shape...and be sure bangs are thick."

One great fact about being a round face shape is women with your face shape tend to age well, according to celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Tony Youn on MSNBC. He had this to say about round face shapes, "Women with rounder faces, typically are much slower to show their age than women with longer faces, since they tend to retain the fullness and softness of youth."
