As we discussed in our last post there are many factors that can go into determining the perfect haircut for you as an individual. However, The most important element is identifying the shape of your face. In this face shape series we will help you identify the cut that will work best for you. So here is the question? What is your Face Shape? Heart, Long, Round, Square, Oval or Diamond? Today we discuss the Square Face Shape.

A square shaped face is strong and broad with the cheek, forehead, and jaw measurements almost the same.

What is the perfect hairstyle of a Square Shaped Face?
OVERALL: Your perfect hairstyle options are surprisingly sexy. A style that is feathered at the top and soft around your ears is an instant disguise for a square jaw.

Do you have fine hair?

  • A long straight cut with root lift is absolutely perfect and flattering for a wide jaw.

Do you have curly hair?

  • If you have curly hair, coax soft, sexy, textured layers around your face to soften your strong features.

Fringe options: Most hair types, except curly will be able to take a fringe that touches the eyebrows and which is longer and layered at the sides. However, if your hair is thick or frizzy layer the fringe throughout to thin it out.

Color you sexy: Lightening hair all around the face will soften a square face.
 As a rule of thumb avoid long straight styles that accentuate the jaw. Straight bangs, center parts and really short cuts are also to be avoided.

OVERALL: Make sure in styling that you achieve some roundness to the shape and some height at the crown or bangs and you will be on the right track.

ALWAYS: Take a few photos of styles you like and take them to your hairdresser. They can best advice you on what will work best with your face shape, personality and lifestyle.
