Long hair always looks great on a round face and Mila Kunis proves it. Kunis has a round face and frequently wears her hair long and straight or wavy. This style is flattering on a round face because long hair creates the illusion of length in the face and the straight hair doesn't add body to the sides of the face. In fact, the curtain effect has a nice way of slimming a round face.

Also note her center part. "If you want to wear a center part, the way to make it work for a round face is to have hair a few inches past your shoulders with layers that hit at the jaw," says hairstyle Chris McMillan in Allure Magazine. "Ask your stylist to cut in a bit on the sides to create subtle angles."

Musts for this look:

  1. To get pin-straight hair, invest in a flat iron. And read this before you use it: How to Use a Flat Iron.
  2. Learning how to properly blow dry your hair can make a huge difference in your hair's appearance. See The Perfect Blowout -- How to Blow Dry Your Hair.
