Top Hairstyles For Double Chin
Here are some of my favorite hairstyles for double chin. Take a look!
Chin Length Bob Cut With Layers
On first glance, this women’s haircut to hide a double chin might seem counterintuitive. I mean why get a chin-length haircut if you want to hide that part of your face?
But this works really well in slimming down rounder, chubbier faces!
The chin-length bob frames your face in a way that hides that bloating underneath your chin. The layers also help elongate your face. A straight bob might have been too severe if it was chin-length
But the layers here really work their magic. They not only help add volume to your tresses but also give the illusion of a narrow facial structure.
And if you have fine hair or thinning hair, then layers are always a good idea.
Short Shaggy Hairstyles for Double Chin
This is among my favorite short hairstyles for fat faces and double chins. The shaggy hair is just so easy to maintain and gives such a stylish vibe.
I really like the just-rolled-out-of-bed look! And if you think this style doesn’t suit women with fuller faces, think again.
The shorter length helps frame your face in a way that draws attention away from your chin area. And the shaggy texture adds volume to otherwise flat, limp locks.
If you don’t have naturally wavy or type 3 hair, then you need to invest in a good texturizing spray to get the shaggy waves right.
Long Layered Hair With Side Bangs
If you ever have a doubt as to what haircut to choose for a round face, just remember that you can’t go wrong with side bangs.
The way these bangs are cut, hide a good portion of your face. This makes it look less fuller.
And the angle of the side bangs makes your face appear less round and more oval in shape.
So if you’re looking for medium hairstyles for fat faces and double chins, this is the one!
The layers also help make thin hair look bouncy, drawing attention away from your double chin.
Short Curls With Middle Part Hairstyles for Double Chin
A lot of women with double chins do not get short haircuts as they fear drawing the eye to their lower face area.
However, this isn’t true always! There are several short hairstyles for fat faces and double chins.
Take this short curly hairstyle for example. The middle part here helps elongate your face, making it seem less round and full.
And the bouncy curls also do their part in hiding your double chin even if they are short.
Short Angled Pixie Hairstyles for Double Chin
I’ve seen so many women hesitate to go for more experimental hairstyles as they are afraid of making their double chin more conspicuous.
But this isn’t the case. Short haircuts, edgy pixies, or even French crops can look amazing on women with double chins if done right.
It’s all about the angles and layers! Just look at this short pixie cut. The asymmetrical angle of the hairstyle draws the viewer’s attention towards it and away from your chin.
The layers also give the illusion of a slimmer face and jawline.
This is one of my favorite women’s hairstyles for over 50 with a double chin. So this is one of the styles you can rock with your grey hair as it suits older women well.
Long Voluminous Ponytail Hairstyles for Double Chin
The idea behind this hairstyle is simple. If you give people something extraordinary to look at they will be less likely to look at your double chin.
And also because plus-size women can also rock that Ariana Grande ponytail and look awesome in it!
This is obviously one of the long hairstyles for double chin. But it can be done just as easily if you have shorter hair if you wear hair extensions.
Just be sure to use a lot of hairspray to keep that bouffant on top looking neat all day long.
Long Curtain Bangs With Wavy Hair
Another type of hairstyle that I think is the best friend of gals with plus-size figures, round faces, and double chins is the curtain bangs.
The bangs, just like side fringes help frame the face in a way that slims it down. Also, the curtain bangs are layered which makes it more effective in this job than side bangs.
If you want a soft, feminine look and want to hide your double chin at the same time, this is the hairstyle for you.
Here, this hairstyle is shown on medium-length hair that has been given a wavy texture. But you can easily get this style on long hair as well.
Medium Length Beachy Waves
Women with double chin should go for wavy, curly, and shaggy hairstyles more often as the voluminous texture offered by these styles help hide their double chin.
These hairstyles are also easy to create and manage.
If you don’t want to commit to a modern pixie hairstyle or bangs, this is a stylish yet safe option.
All you need to do is add some waves to your medium-length hair.
If you don’t already have a type 2c or 3a hair texture, you can use a texturizing spray and plop your hair to help it form waves.
The easiest way to get beachy waves is also to use a flat iron or hair waver to change your hair texture.
Short Straight Hair With Side Part
Here’s one of the most stylish hairstyles for double chin for my straight hair girlies!
Yes, yes. You can still wear your hair poker straight and not make your face look too wide and conspicuous.
It all depends on the length of your hair. Making it a few inches longer than your chin can actually help hide the bloating there.
I know women with rounder faces are often recommended to go for middle parts. But using a side part is a better option for this hairstyle as it adds a bit of volume to straight hair.
Updos With Feminine Wispy Bangs
If you’re a plus-size woman or are dealing with a double chin, I understand it can get difficult to try updos.
After using your hair to hide these supposedly “problematic” areas of your face, it can seem intimaditing and almost naked to tie it all back.
But there are several updos that make you look fantastic, double chin or no double chin.
If you’re going for updo hairstyles for a wedding function or prom, try this feminine hairstyle.
Here, you’ll need to tease out a few wispy strands from the front section of your hair to frame your face.
Also, you can try adding a hat, rhinestone hair clips, or other hair accessories to this hairstyle.
Full Waves On Long Hair
If you have long, thick hair, this is among the best hairstyles for double chin you can try. The full waves look so majestic!
Especially if you add some darker highlights or a balayage to your tresses.
I like this hairstyle better when the hair has dark brown or red highlights as it gives a gorgeous fall vibe.
Shaggy Shoulder Length Hair
If you’re looking for a more simple medium-length haircut to hide your double chin, you should try shaggy hair.
These especially look good on women with shoulder-length hair.
Wavy Lob With Highlights Hairstyles for Double Chin
Wavy hair is one of the easiest ways you can hide your double chin as the volume from your tresses hides any hints of roundness on your face.
Curly Vintage Bob Hairstyles for Double Chin
Women in the 50s and 60s didn’t conform to the “slim” ideal of today. Yet, they are considered so stylish, elegant, and even sexy today.
So you can channel your inner Marilyn with this curly vintage bob and own your round face and double chin with confidence!
Short Spiky Pixie Hairstyles for Double Chin
Don’t be afraid to try any experimental or punk hairstyles just because you have a chubbier face.
Sometimes, these short hairstyles like this spiky pixie here can actually help you look your best.
Loose waves can be fantastic for covering up a double chin!

Hairstyles For Double Chin: FAQs
How can I hide my double chin with hair?
The easiest way to hide double chin with your hair is to let hair loose if you have a longer hair length. This creates an optical illusion that makes face seem more elongated, slimming it down in the process.
Is long or short hair better for double chin?
Long hair is any day is better for camouflaging a double chin than short hair. Make sure you tell your hairstylist to give you a shaggy, layered haircut if you have long hair and ensures it comes at least till your shoulders. This helps create a sort of visual illusion of slimness on your face.
Are bangs good for double chin?
Well the truthful answer to this is that it depends. Some bangs like curtain bangs, side bangs, wispy bangs, etc. help add a softness to face and can help hide double chin to some extent. But getting bangs that are shorter and sharper like baby bangs, straight-cut fringes, arched bangs, etc. can draw attention to your chin making double chin more prominent.
Should I cut my hair short if I have a chubby face?
There is a common misconception that you shouldn’t cut your hair short if you have a chubby face. But this isn’t strictly true! While there is some truth that long hair creates a tapering illusion that elongates your face and makes it look slimmer, short hair can have the same effect if you style it right. I suggest getting layers that either frame your face or end a few inches below the chin. The volume created will also help slim down your face.
If that pesky chubbiness around your face is a source of agitation to you, I’ve got the perfect solution.
These top hairstyles for double chin do an amazing job of creating an illusion of slimness and sharpness around your jawline.
And the best part is that you don’t need to do any facial exercise or chew gum to get rid of your double chin!
