Recently on my Instagram, a blogger friend tagged me in her story as someone who has had a variety of short haircuts for a round face. I’m a plus size blogger, and I’ve had short hair since… 2011 ish? There was a brief year where I grew out my hair and got extensions (college was wild, y’all!), but other that that I’ve had a short haircuts on my round face!! One of my fave haircuts is having a shaved head with my round face!
Today, I’m sharing a few photos of myself with a shaved head, showing that folks with round faces can rock a shaved head!!

Round Face Shaved Head
Ok, so when I first decided to shave my head — I kind of freaked out my family, lol!
Ok, I REALLY freaked out my family.
In pop culture, shaving one’s head (or changing one’s hair DRASTICALLY) can be seen as being in some sort of crisis. (Much love and empathy to Queen Britney Spears for her troubles and head shave choices.) For this reason, and a few others, I’ve decided to share a few tips on having a round face and shaved head:
- TELL PEOPLE BEFOREHAND! I had been thinking about shaving my head for YEARS, and I decided to just GO FOR IT after seeing the Jeremy Scott/MOSCHINO documentary. Unfortunately, I decided to finally do it at midnight, and I freaked my parents out (who I was living with at the time).
- Get a bestie! I thought I would be able to shave my head by myself, but actuallyyyy it’s a bit harder than you think to get it all even. I recommend getting a professional hair person to help you! It’s pretty easy to nick your scalp or ear.
- Use the guards! Ok, I knew next to nothing about shaving my head when I did it for the first time, and I wish I had known about how handy the “guards” are. I learned if I wanted a bit of color still on my head (see my first round face shaved head photo below), then I’m going to want to use a GUARD on my clippers — to leave a bit of hair on my head.

You can absolutely have a round face with a shaved head – and be professional! It’s all about making sure you regularly shave your head, as the shaved hair can get a bit “fluffy”!

When I have a shaved head, I tend to wear larger earrings, statement red lipstick and really ~femme~ it up. If this isn’t part of your gender presentation, no worries!!
