50 Top Hairstyles For Square Faces August 11, 2016

High cheekbones, well-defined jaw-lines, and impeccable bone structure. Isn’t it the kind of face to die for? Well, the women with square faces have it all, and we can’t be jealous enough.

We can’t help but swoon at the likes of Keira Knightley who have the perfect square face. But at the same time, women with square faces have to choose their makeup and hairstyles very carefully in order to accentuate their features and soften the sharp angles, especially the sharp and boxy jawlines.

Soft, flowing hairdos that tend to round off the sharp angular cuts are ideal for square faces since they impart a touch of delicacy. Not only that, they help the face look elongated, instead of highlighting the almost 1:1 ratio of the width and length of the face. There are certain pointers you need to keep in mind while opting for a hairdo for a square face.

You should ideally avoid –

  • Cuts with no layers
  • Layers that are too short
  • Very short hairstyles
  • Styles that end at the chin
  • Blunt bangs
  • Flat hairstyles
  • Sleek straight
  • Blunt cuts

These styles usually prove unflattering for a square face since they make your face appear broader. On the other hand, what you can actually opt for are –

  • Angled cuts
  • Graduated layers
  • Loose waves or curls
  • Side-swept bangs
  • Flowing hair
  • Cuts that end just below your chin
  • Volume at the crown

Such hairdos tend to make your face appear a little ovaline, instead of boxy. They also impart an elongated look to your face.

Note: Before trying out any of the hair hair is clean. Also, comb through to remove any tangles. This will ensure that the hairstyle stays put for a longer time.

So, for all the lovely ladies with square faces, here’s a list of hairstyles that’ll help you flaunt your square face with more grace and elan! Let’s go through the list without any further ado.

    Hi Neha..! That’s a great article. I have obtained a lot of body weight over the last few years, and none of the examples of face shapes consist of chubby women. Therefore, I cannot tell what face shape I have. But i know there is a hairstyle out there for me. My face is round I have been displaying a complete curly hair with layers. I need a change. What do I do?

    cool cuts..1 2 and 5 are flattery.. and sexy they will look.. thnks for sharing such cool hairstyles articles.. they really make me aware so much..

  • Elizabeth

    I agree with the assessment, but not all of the celebrities sporting the cuts have square faces! Blake is oval or oblong. Victoria Beckham is an inverted triangle. I understand it’s for the cuts, but it would be better if the cuts were shown on square faces. Olivia Wilde or Angelina Jolie have cuts/styles that could have been used in the examples instead.
