How do you like it? Bangs that accentuate your round face even more or those that slim your face giving the illusion of an oval face shape?

A round face shape is characterized by a rounded hairline and chin, and a wider cheek area. The width and length of the face are roughly the same, giving the face a circular appearance. People with round face shapes often have a softer, more youthful look and may have fewer angles and sharp features compared to those with other face shapes.
For a round face, cheeks are the widest part of your face and then your face tapers down to a narrower chin. Some other features of a round face can include a rounded jawline, a slightly curved forehead, and fullness around the cheeks and temples.
When it comes to hairstyles and makeup, there are certain things that can help to create the illusion of a more defined jawline or a more elongated face, which can be more flattering for a round face shape.
Generally, bangs that make your round face even shorter would not help slim your face. Good choices include those that add volume at the crown, have a side-parted bangs and layers around the face, or are chin-length or longer. Jagged bangs are great for round face shapes.
Lets break this all down to drive the point home.

Curtain bottle neck bangs
Curtain bangs are cut shorter in the middle, and gets longer as the bangs get further away from the face. They frame the face on both sides, styled to look like a curtain hanging over the forehead, parted in the middle and falls just above or at the eyebrows, with a slight wave at the ends. “Think of a curtain draping a window,” Celebrity hairstylist Michelle Cleveland says.
For round face shapes, style these curtain bangs to look like bottle neck bangs by creating a shape that is similar to the neck of a bottle. This makes the bang edgy diffusing the chicks on both sides.
Choppy bangs are cut in a rough, irregular way characterized by a textured, jagged appearance and may be cut at different lengths. Unlike blunt bangs, that cover the forehead with a thick blanket of hair, choppy bangs are all about movement. The textured bangs are edgy, choppy, not too perfect.
Choppy bangs are a great idea for round face shapes because of their jagged tousled effect. They’re messy, not perfect, with texture, creating movement, which, as a result, diffuses the roundness of the face, making it look slimmer.
