Short hairstyles are all the rage right now but consider your face shape before you go chop-chop. A blunt cut that ends right at the chin will add more volume and make your face appear squarer. Instead, go for a slightly longer cut, one that ends slightly above your shoulder.


Add length and layers

Those with long hair and square-shaped face should opt for layers as it adds more dimension to your look. Take inspiration from Jennifer Lopez who swears by layers to flatter her square face shape.


Opt for asymmetrical bangs

Bangs flatter square face shape, but avoid a straight cut fringe as it will only enhance the squareness of your face. Asymmetrical bangs in varying lengths or curtain bangs are your best bet.


Top knots and buns

One of the best hairstyles for square face shape is top knots and buns, but avoid anything too sleek. Add as much texture as possible and keep it slightly loose and undone.

If you have naturally curly hair and a square-shaped face, then you don’t have to try too hard. Why? Because your curly hair texture draws attention away from the sharp angles of your face.
