It’s not easy to find haircuts that suit your personality, are in fashion, and are also flattering for your face shape. For women with a square face, they have to learn to downplay their angular jaw and at the same time create some soft femininity to their style. You’ll know that your face is square shaped if you have a strong angular jaw and probably a square hairline.
The trick to getting a flattering hairstyle is to draw attention away from your hairline. Whether short, medium-length, or long,you will be able to find the right hairstyle to suit your square face. Here are 4 great haircut ideas for you.
1. Concave Bob
Square faced women are advised against cropping their hair because this will put emphasis on your square forehead and wide jawline. Moreover, avoid exposing your hairline with a very short ‘do. The shortest and most flattering haircut for a square face is the concave bob. Your hair length should fall above your chin, with the edges falling softly forward towards your face. Sweep your bangs diagonally to minimize the squareness of your hairline. This will create a more rounded look to your features.
2. Mid-length Bob
This could very well be the most flattering haircut for women with a square face. Your hair should be cut chin-length and styled so the strands are gently framing your face. Don’t crop your bangs straight, but rather trim them so you can sweep them diagonally across your forehead. These create gentle curves that soften your angular features. For style variety, you can texturize the edges and wisp them outwards. Avoid having your hair fall straight down at the sides of your face. Lack of body and curves in your hair will only emphasize your square jaw more.
3. Long and Layered
A one-length hairstyle is not very flattering for women with a square face. Too many straight lines in your hairstyle will only highlight the straight lines in your features. If you opt to wear your hair long, soft gentle layers that frame your face would be a most flattering style. The trick to wearing long hair for people with a square face is to avoid straight lines. Don’t try to iron it out and straighten the edges. Let them fall and curve naturally towards your face.
4. Wavy and Curly
Soften up your jawline by wearing soft waves or gentle curls. Sweep your bangs lightly across your forehead, and have your wavy hair fall gently forward. Avoid brushing your hair behind the ears. Make sure that the edges of your hairstyle are framing your face, so as to cover up your angular jaw a bit. Curly hair is also a very flattering hairstyle for square faced women. The curved lines are softer to the eye, and are very effective in making your features look softer and more feminine.
