What is Square Face Shape?
The square face and round face are the two most common face shapes. The square face does not narrow much from the cheekbone to the forehead, nor from the cheekbone to the jaw line. The square face may also look angular- the jawline may appear sharply-angled at the corners, and even the forehead may be squared off.
The way to enhance a square face is to steer clear of blunt bangs, center parts, and blunt, jaw-length bobs. Try side-swept bangs, curl or waviness, and layers to bring softness to the angles of this face. Also, part your hair on the side, and if you pull your hair back, leave some wispy pieces hanging around your face. Short to medium length hairstyles suits the square face shape, because of the strong jaw.
Hair Style for Square Face Shape
HAIRSTYLES TO TRY
Wispy forward falling hair onto your face will soften your jaw line.
Wearing bangs swept over to one side will create diagonal movement to minimize square shapes.
Short to medium length hair will also suit you, especially if the style is rounded in shape or has wispy ends.
Styles with height at the crown will also work in your favor.
HAIRSTYLES TO AVOID
Avoid blunt bobs, especially sitting at chin length with straight heavy bangs as this will accentuate your jaw line and squareness.
Middle parts with solid bangs can also work against you.
