Round faces are different from chubby faces and differ in the facial features also. Basic geometry of the two kinds differs vastly from one another. A round face would have the perfect round shape with the length and the width of the face reading the same size while a chubby face might have extra cheek fat or extra fat due to body fat. Oval face shapes are the ones that would go with any kind of hairstyle. So one has to be very careful in choosing short hairstyles for round faces, as a wrong choice would make the face look more round and chubby.
Short hairstyles have been popular for women since the 1920's. Louise Brooks's bob hairstyle in 1917 became the most popular hairstyle of the 1920's. Women of this time period threw out their corsets as they ventured out on a quest for freedom and they began cutting their hair short. Short hair became the new hairstyle for women as they entered the workforce. Short hair has long sense been a symbol of freedom and professionalism for women.
