You have round face shape if you have really soft angles or the widest part of your face is at your cheekbones and the length and width of your face are equal in size.
Note: To determine your face shape you can try two methods. For both, first stand before a mirror and pull back off your hair.
1. Now, measure your face across the widest points of your forehead, the tops of your cheekbones and your jawline, and finally measure your face from your hairline to your chin.
2. I also like this other technique: Use a lipstick, a bar of soap or some non-permanent marker and carefully trace the outline of your face in the mirror - so you can easily see the shape of your face. Draw the contour by the edges of your face including the curve of your hair line but without your ears.
The best hairstyles add more length and delicate angles to your round face shape. No matter if you have short, middle length or long hair, you hairstyle is perfect when you wear bangs (long or side-swept) or layers that are end under your cheekbones so they can slimmer your face.
You can also wear soft waves or curls as long as the they begin below the lips, straight hair and styles that gave height like a bun or a high pony tail.
So to put seasonal color and style analysis into the context, I collected many hairstyles according to each seasonal palettes. Every seasonal color women have their own styles that should appear in hairstyles as well.
Spring seasonal color women have basically romantic style, Summer women have classic, Autumn women have natural till Winter women have dramatic style so you can find great examples for these cuts below.
Naturally, there are the many combinations like romantic and classic style for Light Spring or dramatic and natural style for Deep Winter. I also try to show these possibilities on the photos.

Now, you have an idea about your best hairstyles let's see some more important details - frames and jewellery.
On the following photos I collected the best sunglasses/glasses frames plus the perfect earrings and necklaces. Don't forget your seasonal palette. If you are a cool women (Summer or Winter) choose a cool color (mostly black, grey, blue, pink or purple) frame and silver jewellery but if you are a warm women (Spring or Autumn) wear a warm color (mostly brown, orange, yellow, gold) frame and gold accessories.
You should also balance your lovely round face with the sunglasses/glasses and the accessories that add angles and length to your face shape.
Wear sunglasses/glasses with rectangular, angular or square-shaped frames and make sure that the bottoms just hits your cheekbones.

When you pick a pair of earrings make sure that are long, vertically angular, drop or rectangle shaped. For necklaces also wear long, looping or those that create 'V' shape.
