Stunning Hairstyles For Plus Size Women
The Half Up Half Down Waves Hairstyle
I somehow love the way waves look and in my opinion, waves on hair is one style that can suit absolutely anyone, irrespective of their face cut. These simple waves will instantly add class and elegance to your look.
This hairstyle entails most of your hair left down, to fall into the waves while a little hair from the sides, is tied up and clipped onto the back of your hair to hold up the waves perfectly. So if you are someone with long hair, this hairstyle will suit you perfectly.
The Short Taper Fade Hairstyle
Taper hairstyles are totally trending these days. From Kristen Stewart to so many celebrities, are often seen sporting this look. But how about you not just hop on the trend, but switch up the hairstyle by getting the taper fade haircut.
This style will let you have the hair at the top of your head cut short while tapering the length as it comes down your head to show the faded effect.
The Short Bob Blunt Cut Hairstyle
From the time I saw Rihanna get this bob back in the day, I have always loved this hairstyle. It does not just look pretty, but it really brings out one’s facial features.
If you are someone with a rounder face cut, this style will look good on you. All you need to do is get a bob, with your hair cut short just below your ears, but get it cut into a blunt at the bottom to make your hair look more dense and voluminous.
The Messy High Bun Hairstyle
Well, the messy bun can be absolutely anyone’s go-to hairstyle. Be it curly hair or straight hair, long or short hair, slim or plus-sized, this hairstyle will literally suit anyone.
This hairstyle is super easy to wear on the go, but still looks perfect. The messy look is totally trending! All you need to do is gather up your hair into a high ponytail and swirl it around to form a messy bun.
The Fancy Cornrows Hairstyle
What I love about the cornrows hairstyle is the fact that the hairstyle looks super intricate, but yet so fancy and elegant. Ever since Kim Kardashian and Zendaya have sported this hairstyle, many others have tried it and looked fabulous. So why don’t you?
Guess what? You don’t only need to get just regular cornrows, but style your cornrows in such a way that looks fancy! So maybe you can get the entwined ones or even style them, in the shape of a heart. The choice is all yours!
The Crochet Locs Hairstyle
Well, I have to say that this style is the funkiest of them all. It is super unique and will get heads turning in your direction. So if you are someone who likes trying hairstyles out of the ordinary, then this one’s for you!
If you are worried about maintenance, don’t be, because these locs are easy to maintain and they are also lightweight putting no pressure on your head. You can also get your crochet locs highlighted to make your locs look more fashionable.
The Short Hair with Bottom Curls Hairstyle
If you are looking for a cute hairstyle, then go in for a short haircut, with curls only at the bottom. These curls will fall loosely near your chin, giving your chin and face a more defined look.
You can also choose to highlight your curls or leave them natural. This style will suit those with oval or round face cuts better, especially if you have naturally wavy or curly hair.
The Feathered Pixie Cut Hairstyle
There is something about the feathered pixie cut that looks so stunning. What I love about this hairstyle is that it is very versatile and can not only suit just anyone but can also be worn to any occasion. Be it a formal meeting or to a casual party, this hairstyle will still look apt!
Here’s a tip, you can also get the feathers at the top of your hair highlighted and that will enhance the style like never before.
The One-Sided Bangs Pixie Hairstyle
Pixie cuts have always been in fashion and Kris Jenner has had this style for the longest time. Doesn’t it look lovely? Well, if you think it does, then maybe you can try it out.
This pixie cut is a little different from the rest. This cut entails growing out the top of your hair to fall over your forehead, like bangs but covering just one side. People with oval or rounder face cuts can pull off this hairstyle the best, but that doesn’t mean the others cannot try it out. I’m sure that anyone can actually rock this style.
The Short Side Waves Hairstyle
This style is so gorgeous and unique! If you are looking out for a short hairstyle, but of course something fashionable, then this style is the perfect one to get.
If you are someone with wavy hair, then get yourself a good short hair cut and comb all your hair towards one side of your head so that the waves form perfectly. You can even run your fingers through the waves while setting your hair in order to get a ruffled look.
The Pixie Mohawk with Highlighted Tips Hairstyle
If you want a stylish and funky haircut, but do not want to go all-in right away, then this one will let you get halfway at least.
This hairstyle entails a half mohawk, where the center hair is cut into short pixie spikes, while the side hair is tapered. The pixie spikes are then enhanced with subtle highlights, which match the person’s base hair colour.
The Classic Center-Parted Curls Hairstyle
If you do not like straying away from the classic and like to keep it simple, then this classic center-parted curls hairstyle is the one for you. It is simple, yet elegant.
This hairstyle entails a short hair cut which makes the curls fall loosely at the sides of your face. This look not only makes your curls look more defined but will also make your facial features stand out.
The Classic Center-Parted Straight Hairstyle
Yet another simple and classic hairstyle for all you ladies out there, with straight and long hair. If you really like your long tresses, what better way to show them off?
Part your hair in the center and let your long hair fall freely over your shoulders. This style will suit those people with any face cut. So you don’t have to worry about your “plus” size to get this hairstyle!
The Short Summer Crop Hairstyle
If you are looking for a low-maintenance hairstyle that you can simply brush (or maybe not!) before you leave the house, then go in for the summer crop hairstyle.
It looks good, while on the other hand, you have to put in absolutely no effort to “style” it, because it pretty much is a style by itself. The best part of this hairstyle is that it literally suits anyone!
The Top Bun with Side Curls Hairstyle
This hairstyle is one that anyone can get and is super easy to maintain and even wear, especially if you are running late (with no one knowing, of course).
This hairstyle will suit those with wavy or curly hair types the best, because the curls which are left loose out of the high bun are those that add the essence to the hairstyle. But nevertheless, if you are someone with straight hair, you can still try out this look and I’m sure it will look just as pretty.
The Classic Loose Curls with Hat Hairstyle
Planning to set out on a trip and want to rev up your style? Then keep it simple and classic. Brush your curls and let them fall loosely over your shoulders, while you complete the look by dawning a hat.
This style looks good on everyone, while all you need is a simple straight or layered cut hairstyle.
The Final Takeaway
So ladies, let not your weight stop you from getting the hairstyle of your choice. But if you are still conscious about your look, then you can go in for hairstyles like the ones I’ve shown you above.
Look out for either shorter hairstyles like bob cuts, pixie crops or even hairstyles that have forehead bangs. You can also go in for hairstyles that define your locks, waves or curls if you are someone with longer hair. The idea is to get hairstyles that are cut closer to your face, to give your face a more defined look!

I’ve had an interest in haircare and hairstyling from a very young age. It’s something I picked up from my mum who owns her own salon. I absolutely love experimenting with hair care products and trying out all hair dyes (the weirder the color, the better!). In my free time, I like painting and karaoke (though, my sister doesn’t appreciate either of my skills!).
