The trick to getting the perfect look as a plus-size woman is knowing what works for you and what doesn’t. As with women of any size and shape, not all things work for all people. On your quest for the perfect haircut, you’ll want to consider finding a cut that not only looks great but makes you feel amazing as well. With shoulder-length hair, you have plenty of options including layers and pinning. Choose a style that accentuates your figure, outfit and personality to make you feel your best.


Long, choppy layers work well for just about any face shape and body type. Use these layers to elongate your entire frame by cutting longer pieces below your chin and shorter pieces above the chin. You’ll find the layers very complementary to your face. If you feel like you want to hide a few extra curves in your face, layers are one of the best-kept secrets to doing so – and they will give you a sexy look to boot.

Side-sweeping Bang

Channel your inner starlet with a side sweeping bang and plenty of waves in your hair. The side sweep can be played up for a more romantic look or left down to be flirty. Either way, let your eyes be the center of attention with this eye-popping cut.

Bold, Blunt Bangs

Also known as the Chinese bang, if you favor the shape of your face – no matter if it’s apple, round or heart-shaped – get a blunt Chinese bang from eyebrow to eyebrow. This look gives you a smart punch and draws plenty of attention to your features. If you’re complimented often on your pretty face, this is the way to have all eyes on you.

Messy Up-do

Face off with a sexy up-do to elongate your body and amp up your inner vixen. If you love your shoulder-length hair and wouldn’t dare take the scissors to your tresses, give it a switch by piling your hair on top of your head and securing with a hair clip. Allow your natural hairline edges to dance around. Giving your hair some height will lengthen your face, providing you a longer, leaner look.
