Women with square jaws sometimes wonder how they can best wear their hair and makeup to suit their unique face shapes. Some of them also question how feminine their jaw line is.
There are many beautiful square face women celebrities that have graced Hollywood with their presence: Paris Hilton, Katharine Hepburn, Kathy Ireland, Rosario Dawson, Reese Witherspoon, and Penelope Cruz being among them.
Why do some women have square faces?
Although it is said that some women with square jaws have slightly higher testosterone levels than average (but still within normal range), in many women it is simply an ethnic feature. Celtic people, such as the Irish and Scottish, often have square face shapes among them. Many of the Hollywood celebrities on this page have Celtic blood.
Paris Hilton (above) has a square jaw and her hairstyle always complements her features. Here she wears her hair long, which draws attention to length rather than facial width.
Katharine Hepburn (below) was not considered a stereotypical beauty but was always envied for her striking looks. She was also known to have immaculately clear skin. She usually wore her hair shoulder length and curly but was never very concerned about styling her hair to suit her facial features in any way.
Kathy Ireland (above) is now a very wealthy woman with her brand marketed across the United States, but she started off as a model. She was a very hot commodity for swimsuit modeling and especially Sports Ilustrated back in the 1990s. She was labeled an all-American beauty and carries that image to this day.
Like many square face women celebrities, Kathy knows that adding height and length to her hairstyle equalizes her facial proportions.
Rosario Dawson (right) is a popular actress who has been in films such as Clerksand Men in Black. She is envied by many women for her fabulous thin figure, her clear skin, and big, beautiful smile.
Her square jaw line is sometimes obvious, as in the picture on the right, and is sometimes obscured when she wears her hair piled high on her head or bangs.
International film star Penelope Cruz (above) is a woman with a square jawline that evens out her features with her thick, layered hair.
Penelope is viewed as an exotic beauty and has also dated some of Hollywood's hottest men, including Tom Cruise.
Reese Witherspoon (right) is an extremely popular actress and also has a very square face. Her hairstyles usually feature bangs or layers which draws attention to her entire face rather than simply the bottom.
Reese also emphasizes the corners of her eyes with makeup that draws attention upward and outward from the lower part of her face.
