I love fashion! Hairstyle is so important for women. The right hairstyle can make you look younger, more attractive, and hide imperfections.

Do You Have a Square Face?

What is a square or rectangle face shape? The square face is characterized by a very strong jawline. The width of the jaws are almost the same as the forehead. When you draw a simple shape of your face, it often looks like a rectangle or square. While this face shape is very flattering for men, it gives people a strong and masculine impression. The goal of your hair is to reduce strong angles of the face and soften your strong features.

While the square face is not the most ideal for women, many famous and gorgeous celebrities have this face shape. Think of the famous Angelina Jolie, she has a very classic square shaped face. Also, the gorgeous German model Heidi Klum has a very classic square face as well.

Long Romantic Wavy Hair

Feminine hairstyles are the best for those with square shaped faces. You want to soften the angular features of the your face with soft feminine waves. To make the face even more softer, wear the hair long. Also it's really important to let your hair down to frame the square face perfectly. Volume can also helps to soften your face, so blow dry to volumize. If you have long square (rectangle) face, you can shorten the face with some straight bangs that graze the eyebrows. But if you have a true square face, go ahead and do a side part wavy hair. Overall, wavy hair is really your bestfriend.


Multiple Layers Long Straight Hair

What if you don't naturally have wavy hair texture or you don't like wavy hair? Don't worry, square faces can look just as amazing with straight hair. Wear your hair long and straight but have the barber cut multiple layers to flatter a square face gal like yourself. This hairstyle will really bring out your feminine features and soften the strong jawline giving you a very balanced look.


Side Part Long Hair with Layers and Bangs

This look is perfect for those with square faces. Layering straight hair is the key for those with square faces. But adding a side part balances a square face even more. With this hairstyle, you will look like the girl next door. A word of advice though, lighter hair works better with this style. If you have black hair, it might look too heavy. You can do without the bangs as well and just go for the long hair with layers in that case.


Curly Volumizing Long Hair

Side parted curly volumizing long hair is very amazing for a woman with square face shape. This hairstyle is ultra feminine and flatters the square face perfectly. The curly long hair draws attention away from the strong angular jawline. People will notice your eyes and hair a lot more. This hairstyle may be a little bit difficult for everyday. However, you can go for this beautiful style when attending an event or sharing a special night with your partner.


Chin Length or Even Slightly Longer Bob

Square faces are quite versatile, you don't have to have long hair to accentuate your natural beauty. Shorter hair can look just as amazing. Several years ago, the bob was everywhere. Even though nowadays the bob is no longer as popular. But, you know what, fashion trends are circular. Before you know it, the bob will be popular again. So, what kind of bob works best for the square face? A long bob that is either at the chin length or slightly longer is the best option for women with square faces. The hair hides the very angular jawline and make the face appear oval. Also, when the hair tapers around the chin, it will make the strong jaw area look smaller and more dainty. This kind of bob is really perfect for women with square faces.


Up-do Hairstyle with Some Hair at the Side

Sometimes you just want to pull your hair up. By pulling the hair up completely will reveal your strong jawline. This might not work for women with square faces. However, if you do a messy up-do hair and leave a few strands of hair on the side of your face, your square face will look instantly more refined and feminine. Preferably, the hair on the side of the face should be wavy. This is an everyday hairstyle that requires almost no effort. And guess what? You are going to look effortless chic with the messy up-do.
