Choosing a proper hairstyle is a must especially if you are overweight, as hairstyles play a very important role in physical appearance. The right hairstyle can enhance the best facial features while concealing the flaws, aiding natural beauty and style.

When it comes to hairstyles for overweight women, making the right choice is important to help balance the look and enhance the best facial features, without drawing attention to the weight. Along time a variety of hairstyles have been developed, hairstyles which look fabulous and stylish. Adapting the hairstyle to the facial features is necessary if you wish to benefit from the hair style completely. As there are so many hairstyles available we have selected some of the loveliest hairstyles suitable for overweight women.

Short hairstyles Choosing a short hairstyle will not be easy as short hairstyles reveal and emphasize the facial features, drawing attention towards the features you are trying to conceal. However, if you have a pointy chin or feminine facial features, you can go for a fabulous pixie short haircut as the pixie is hot and can enhance your natural beauty without drawing attention towards your weight. The sexiness exuded by this short haircut is fabulous and can suit women of all ages.

Medium hairstyles Medium length hairstyles are lovely and suit women who are overweight perfectly. Not all medium hair lengths are appropriate however, as some hairstyles which are cut above chin length can create a disproportioned look, a look which will not be flattering. Bob hairstyles which fall down to shoulder length are more appropriate for overweight women as hair length has a great slimming effect over the face and the hair’s length helps obtain a much more balanced image. Instead of a blunt sleek straight cut, try to opt for a layered bob which will add a little bit of volume to your tresses, allowing you to have a more breezy look. The hair’s length will allow you to style your tresses differently every time you wish to adapt your hairstyle to the occasion.

Long hairstyles It is a well known fact that long hairstyles can have a great slimming effect over the facial features, creating a more balanced look for women with rounder face shapes. There are a variety of long hairstyles to choose from which benefit you, but try to avoid getting a blunt cut long hairstyle. Choose a layered hairstyle with loose curls, loose waves or straight, but with the right amount of hair volume to look great. Long hairstyles can allow you to style your tresses differently as often as you wish, helping you to avoid a routine when it comes to hair styling. Side swept bangs are also perfect for overweight women as they give the hair a little bit of twist while softening the facial features.
