20 Hairstyles for Double Chin 2019

By on December 25, 2018

Hiding a double chin is decidedly not easy. As a part of your face, you cannot just cover it up like you can with thick thighs or a belly pooch. Other than finding the right hairstyles for double chin 2019, you can also adopt a few lifestyle changes to reduce your double chin. With the right techniques, you can make your photos Instagram worthy in no time.

Lifestyle Changes for Reducing Your Double Chin

To help reduce the size of your chin, try to focus on losing chin fat. It is impossible to just target one spot of your body for fat reduction, so you will have to reduce your overall fat levels. Jogging can also help to firm up your chin and tighten your muscles, so this could be a quick option for tightening up your chin.

For a faster approach, try to drink more water and eat less salt. Sodium can lead to bloating, which makes your face look larger than it actually is. Cutting down on salt and drinking more water can actually reduce the amount of bloating that you experience.

If you want to do chin-specific exercises, try leaning your head back with your mouth open. Then, pull your bottom lip over your top lip as you jut out your chin toward the ceiling. Do three sets of this exercise with 10 repetitions each day to tighten up your chin muscles.

Sometimes, a double chin is caused by wrinkles and sagging skin. Luckily, you can remedy this problem fairly easy with the right skin treatments. Skin naturally produces less oil as it ages, which can cause it to loosen and dry out. Adding a topical cream onto sagging skin can help it tighten up and reduce the appearance of a double chin.

20 Hairstyles for Double Chin 2019

If you want your pictures to look amazing, you need to figure out the best hairstyles for double chin 2019. Think about using side partitions to make your face look longer and to detract from your double chin. Longer hair will also help to make your face look longer and to keep the focus on your face instead of your chin.

hairstyles for double chin 2019

1. Long Wavy Bob

A long bob is always a great way to lengthen out your face. The waves really give this hairstyle a finished, gorgeous look. By cutting the bob past your jawline, you help to naturally lengthen out your face and hide your double chin. Plus, this hairdo is super easy to do in the morning and just requires a bit of scrunching and hair product to get right.

2. Layered Pixie

A pixie is amazing for adding length to your neckline. It magically makes your face and neck look smaller than before. While it seems counterintuitive that short hair would actually lengthen your face, this trick actually works. For your pixie to look its best, make sure to use some layers. Longer fringes on the sides of the pixie can also add a little length to your hairstyle.

3. Layered Shag

A shag haircut is a traditional rock ‘n’ roll style. It has that casual, mussed up look that appears to be effortless. It includes plenty of layers from the crown down that make it appear texturized and choppy. Avoid going too crazy with the layers though because this can make it appear dated. Instead, focus on adding a bit of volume with textures away from the chin. Cut the layers a bit shorter than your face and then blow-dry them so that they sit against your chin and cheeks. This helps to create the illusion that you have a thinner face and helps to minimize your double chin.

4. Pompadour

If you want short hairstyles for your double chin, you have to find a way to draw the eye away from the chin. One way to do this is by adding volume at the top of your head. This helps to make your face appear longer so that your face shape is more balanced. A pompadour style was made famous long ago by the mistress of King Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour. There are countless styles available, but they all basically involve sweeping your hair upwards and wearing most of your hair on the top of your head. The only drawback with this style is that you really have to do your hair every morning if you want it to look good.

5. Pseudo Pompadour

If chopping off your long locks is too much of a change, you can still have a pompadour-like style without going for short hair. With updos like this one, you sweep your hair upwards and off your face. By placing all of your hair on the top of your head, you naturally add volume at the top so that your face seems elongated and thin.

6. Straight Hair With Side Bangs

If adding layers is not for you, you can still make your face seem thinner with a short hairstyle. Go for straight hair with side bangs to thin out your face. You want to use side bangs because straight, standard bangs will actually make your face seem shorter and emphasize your double chin.

7. Shoulder Length With Layers

This is another easy option. Add soft layers into your hair to add volume. If you want, you can curl your hair to give your style a softer, more finished look. The added layers help to increase the volume of your hair and detract from your chin.

8. Short Curly Hair

This look works well because it adds volume to your hair. The large curls help to draw the eye away from your chin and toward your luscious, gorgeous curls. A short bob works well with this type of style, but you can also use it with shoulder-length hair as well.

9. Long Straight Bob

This is a simple, effortless look that helps to lengthen out your face. Cut your bob so that it is longer than your jawline so that it elongates your face and hides your double chin. This is a great option if you already have fairly straight hair because it will take mere seconds to do your hair in the morning!

10. Faux Hawk

If you want an edgy style, this is definitely an awesome option. A faux hawk adds height to your face and helps to thin out your double chin. All you need I a comb and some hair gel to do this look.

11. Big Swoop Bangs

While short hair has a tendency to make a round face and double chin appear worse, big, side-swept bangs are one way to counteract that effect. If you want to have short hair and bangs, get huge bangs and sweep them to the side to streamline the upper half of your face.

12. Ballerina Buns

While a pony tail is generally a no-no for round faces, there are still simple updos you can do. A ballerina bun or high bun is a great way to add volume at the top of your head. Just use some strong-hold spray and bobby pins to secure the knot in place.

13. Wavy Mid-Length Hair

Choosing this look means that you can spend less than 5 minutes on your hair in the morning. Just scrunch your hair up tightly after you wash it or use large Velcro curlers overnight. Make sure you cut your hair two to three inches longer than your jawline to help lengthen your face.

14. Side-Bun With Bangs

This style focuses on using a low bun on the side of your face. Parting your bangs to the side helps to reduce the roundness of your face and take attention away from a double chin.

15. Long Hair With Layers

If you love long hair, add some layers to make your face look longer. This also helps to reduce the roundness of your face and make it appear to be less wide.

16. Braided Faux Hawk

Cutting your hair into a short faux hawk is a huge commitment, but you can still get a faux hawk look with long hair. Just use some braids to create the same look without having to cut your hair short. This look is great for weddings and formal events.

17. Short Bob With Side Swept Bangs

This look is easy to maintain and extremely sexy. The straight short bob helps to lengthen the face, and the edgy bangs help to balance out any roundness.

18. A-Line Bob Cut

This look is another easy bob cut that helps to hide a double chin. The A-line look helps to make an edgy, modern style. You can make the bob slightly messy for a classy, sexy look.

19. Long Hair With Fringe

Skip the layers and go for just long hair. You can use a rustled, mussed up look or go for sleek, straight hair. A fringe of bangs swept to the side helps to hide some of the width of your face.

20. Asymmetrical Curled Bob

Asymmetrical bobs are so edgy and hip. Add some curls to the bob, and you end up with an unforgettable, adorable style. The curls in this look helps to add volume that balances out a double chin or round face. Plus, adding curls is a great option for women with thin hair who want to boost their volume.

    I agree with others. This helps but pictures with women who have double chins would be more helpful. Skinny or fat, I still have a double chin. I’m not overweight right now but was when I was pregnant. Weight came off but the double chin stays.

      It depends on your type of hair–and the budget you are looking at too, of course. You should talk to your hairstylist because s/he will be able to tell you the best options for your hair. Good luck, Terrance!

    Thank you the style suggestions. It would have been more helpful if your models had a double chin so we could see which cut would be better!

      Exactly what I was thinking, none of the women have double chins, so how can we get an idea what the style would look like with a double chin!

        It can be really hard to find celebrities with double chins, especially since there are now things like “Instagram Face” and cheap cosmetic surgeries. Thanks for the feedback!

          So instead of using Celebrity models use real everyday women as your models. I’d volunteer and so would many others

    I’m a skinny woman with a long face and an inherited double chin. I’m tired of long hair, yet it makes me look younger and sexier. I’m so tired of dealing with my hair though.
    My thoughts about this helpful page is this: you use models who are young and have no double chin. Also you keep referring to having a round face… which not all of us double-chinned have.
    Thinking of risking beauty and just whacking my hair off in a bob and scrunching when I actually care to look good. *Sigh*
