  •  Parted bangs 
 Textured, parted bangs soften the lines of a square face shape. You can use a small amount of flexible hold product to keep them in place, just be careful not to over-apply.
  •  Curly bangs 
 A textured fringe, whether curly or wavy, creates a softer, more rounded look.
  •  Off-center part 
 A slightly off-center part frames the face beautifully and isn't quite as intense a perfect middle part.
  •  Long rounded bangs 
 Rounded bangs that are shorter in the middle than they are at the sides create a slightly rounder appearance while drawing attention to the eyes and cheekbones.
  •  Wavy bob 
 The wavy bob looks good on every face shape, fact.
  •  Bob with bangs 
 Seriously, all bobs look awesome all of the time. Just keep it slightly longer than your jawline with a square face shape.

How to tell if you have a square face

Generally speaking, square faces tend to have straight sides and an angular jawline with only a minimal curve. If you have a square shaped face, it's likely to be almost as wide as it is long, with a roughly equal distance between your hairline and your cheekbones, and your cheekbones and your chin.

If you aren't sure what your face shape is, consult with your stylist to get a second opinion, and to discuss all of your options before getting your hair cut.
