↓ Jump to Photo Carousel

Embracing a short haircut is a bold statement that can accentuate your features and boost your confidence. For plus-size women, the right cut can flatter your face shape and highlight your best features. To guide you in choosing the perfect short haircut, we interviewed Linda Miller, a seasoned hairstylist with expertise in styling plus-size clients.

Understanding Face Shapes

Short haircuts can look stunning on plus-size women, but it’s crucial to consider the shape of your face. According to Miller, “The key is to find a cut that balances the proportions.” For example, if you have a round face, a cut with added height on top can elongate your face. On the other hand, those with a long face shape can opt for a style with volume on the sides to create the illusion of width.

Confidence in Your Cut

When it comes to hair texture, Miller advises, “Curly hair can be great for a short cut, but you need a stylist who understands the texture.” If you have curly hair, seek a stylist who is adept at working with your hair type. For straight hair, a short cut can add volume and create a fuller look. Miller suggests avoiding very short cuts that hug the head if you have a double chin, as these styles can accentuate it.
