We are all born unique. No face shape or hair texture is better than the other, knowing the hairstyles that work better for your face shape and hair texture makes the difference.
The secret to great looks is discovering the perfect hairstyle that compliments your face shape and hair texture.
If you have a chubby face and thin hair, many haircut options will charm your face shape and flatter your hair texture.
In this article, you will learn about haircut styles that are great for chubby faces and thin hair.
How to Choose the Right Chubby Face Haircut for Thin Hair
The right haircut will not only complement your facial features but can also affect your entire appearance.
If you have a chubby face and thin hair, you want to choose haircut styles that will visually elongate your face and also make your hair appear fuller.
See a few secrets to choosing the right chubby face haircut for thin hair:
1. Avoid sleek-down hairstyles
Sleek-down hairstyles are the best to show off baby hair, but this hairstyle may not be for you if you have a chubby face and thin hair.
Sleek-down hairstyles make your hairline more visible. Since you have thin hair, the hair around your edges will likely be thinner than the rest. Sleek-down hairstyles also reveal the width of your face and make your face appear fuller.
2. Avoid heavy straight bangs
If you have a chubby face and thin hair, you should avoid heavy straight bangs because the straight-cut bangs will visually make your face appear wider. Also, exposing the central point of your hair can make it appear thinner than it looks.
3. Choose hairstyles that leave elongated locks at the side(s) of your face.
Whether it is a side or center path, hairstyles that leave elongated locks at the side of your face are great options because they make your face appear slimmer. These hairstyles are also great for thin hair because you have more layers of hair.
4. Choose hairstyles with asymmetric haircuts and elongated side bangs
Any hairstyle that crosses your face will make your face appear longer/slimmer. Elongated side bangs will reduce the width of the face and add more volume to your hair especially if you choose a layered or messy style.
5. Choose hairstyles that add volume at the top and bottom of your hair.
Hairstyles that add volume at the top of your hair will make your face appear slimmer and make your hair look fuller.
Adding volume at the top of your hair is also great for thin hair because it reduces the tension on the hair strands.

Long haircuts are usually a no-no for people with thin hair strands, but interior layers say differently. Interior or invisible layers create an illusion of fullness/volume because shorter hair strands are placed below longer ones that give the hair more bounce.
This haircut style is also great for people with round faces because it is a middle part. When you let your hair down on both sides of your face, it appears slimmer.
Long haircuts make thin hair appear thinner, but this is a different situation for interior layers.
If long hairstyles are your thing, adding layers to your haircut is a quick way to add volume to your hair without compromising on length.

If you are looking for a trendy haircut that will still flatter your chubby round face and thin hair, then try an asymmetrical cut. Asymmetrical cuts are not only stylish, but they also give an illusion of volume that makes thin hair appear fuller.
The logic to this hairstyle is this;
cutting the hair shorter on one side than the other adds the illusion of weight to the longer side which will make the hair look thicker.
This hairstyle also frames a chubby face perfectly because we have hair covering the corner of the face- and that hides some portion of the face’ total circumference.
If you cannot submit to an asymmetrical haircut, you can simply style your hair to achieve this look. One way of doing this is by pushing one part of your hair behind your ears and securing it with a hair clip.

The blunt lob ends of the hair and the length makes the hair appear fuller than it is. For this hairstyle, the end is slightly curved-in which helps give the illusion of thickness.
