Ranging from short to long, these hairstyles will help you highlight the most attractive features of your face while beautifully contouring your cheekbones and jawline, so that you look photo-ready at all times!
Let's get started!
1. Short Pixie with Bangs
A short pixie with slightly long bangs looks great on women with square faces. You can go for a straight or wavy pixie and play it up with fancy asymmetrical bangs. The edgy finish of this hairstyle will contour your square face perfectly and make it appear slimmer.
2. Short, Brushed Back Hair
To create this short hairstyle, spritz some high lift creation spray on the roots of your hair to give it a boost and make your mane look more voluminous. Brush your hair backwards while blow-drying and set the look for longer wear by spritzing with your favorite hairspray.
Short, brushed back hair is also one of the simplest day-to-night hairstyles. Switch your hair from office-appropriate to party mode by gently scrunching your locks with your fingers!
To know what this hairstyle for square face looks like, turn to Demi Lovato for inspiration. The sultry beauty has proved that apart from having an inimitable voice, she also has a great sense of fashion when it comes to trying out on-trend hairstyles.
If you want to try an edgy street hairstyle, go for an asymmetrical bob with slightly wavy hair on one side and an undercut on the other. The hairstyle itself is bold enough to draw attention from the angles of a square face. Wear an ear-cuff or a long feathery earring on the undercut side to rock the look!
4. Classic Long Bob with a Middle Part
A short bob with face framing hair pieces sweeping the corners of your jaw makes your square face look more angular. To create a softer look, go for a classic long bob with elongated front locks. These will help to camouflage the angles beautifully and flatter your face with a long or an oval appearance.
This style works best with straight and wavy hair.
5. Long Bob with Blunt Bangs
Looking for a low maintenance hairstyle for your square face? Go for a long bob with blunt bangs! The long bob will even out your square face perfectly and make it appear longer. The blunt bangs will lend an exciting twist to this otherwise simple hairstyle and also help to draw attention to your eyes.
The long bob with blunt bangs is one of the hottest hairstyles of the season and quite easy to manage too, so you can enjoy the best of style and comfort!
6. Barely There Waves for Short Hair
This no-fuss hairstyle is very easy to create and quite low maintenance too. Plus, you can wear it just about anywhere. Remember to work in a tiny amount of strand-smoother serum to make your lovely locks look smooth and shiny!
7. Pin Straight Hair with an Off-Center Part
Sleek, pin-straight hair with an off-center part is the signature hairstyle of celebrities and Hollywood stars. It is a perfect hairstyle for square faces because the straight tresses fall directly over the cheeks, making your face appear narrower.
You don't need very long hair to create this hairstyle. You can flat iron your chin-length hair and set it for longer wear by misting it with some fine hold hairspray. Even better, spritz a small quantity of high lift creation spray on the roots to make your hair look voluminous and instantly transform this day hairstyle into a night 'do!
8. Retro Waves
Long and loose retro waves look gorgeous on women with square faces. They lend a feminine and elegant charm to a boring hairstyle and are as ideal to wear to work as to sport at a red carpet event. The long waves help to contour the cheeks and make your face look longer.
To create this hairstyle for square faces, you must have at least shoulder-length hair. This vintage hairdo works best with straight or wavy hair. To get a picture-perfect glossy finish, apply a light hairstyling gel before blow-drying your hair.
9. Side Swept Tousled Hair
Simple, yet stylish and in-trend this year, side swept tousled tresses make a great hairstyle for square faces. Depending on the length of your locks, you can create your own version of this popular hairstyle with straight or wavy hair ... and with a little help from a tousle waves hairspray and flat iron. Don't forget to prep your tresses for heat styling by spritzing some heat protectant spray!
Create a deep side part to play up your regular side swept hairstyle and let the tousled texture lend your hairdo an exciting flair. Side swept tousled hairstyles are great for work as well as a night-out on the town!
10. Messy Romantic Updo
A messy, romantic updo accentuates all the best features of your face and lends it a soft, delicate appeal. Creating this hairstyle for square faces is easier than you think.
Start by back brushing the hair at your crown to create volume. Next, sweep back all face framing hair over the teased section and smooth it out with the back of your hairbrush. Gather all your hair at the nape of your neck; twist it into a bun and secure with bobby pins.
11. Ponytail with Eyebrow Grazing Bangs
A high ponytail with eyebrow grazing bangs is one of the simplest hairstyles for square faces. While the ponytail helps to secure your hair in place, light, piecey bangs help to cover up a wide forehead and offer a good contrast to the square jawline. Most importantly, this hairstyle helps to draw attention to the eyes, so remember to accentuate your look with light eye make-up.
You can create this hairstyle with medium-length straight, wavy or curly hair. However, in each case, you need to style your bangs (either by blow-drying or by flat ironing) to make them look perfect. Don't forget to mist your bangs with a heat protectant spray before styling them!
12. Loose Silky Hair
Don't wish to overtax your hair with extreme styling? Choose simplicity and wear your silky hair loose!
Loose silky hair looks ravishing on women with square faces. You can create this hairstyle with shoulder-length to long, straight or wavy hair.
Create a middle part and spritz some strand-smoother serum spray on your hair. This will help to remove frizz, detangle knots and make your tresses look smooth and shiny. Brush your hair thoroughly and voilà, you're ready!
13. Messy Top Knot
A messy top knot looks super cute on women with square faces. If you're wondering whether an updo will make your face appear wider, don't worry. A messy, voluminous top knot actually helps to shift attention from an angular chin.
Creating a messy top knot is super easy! Make a high ponytail; divide it into sections and wrap them up, individually, at the base of the pony. Secure your hair pieces with bobby pins as you go. Remember, we're not looking for a perfect finish, so loosen your updo with your fingers to create a cute, messy hairstyle.
14. Long Layered Hairstyle
Layered hairstyles are quite low maintenance and therefore ideal to wear to work. You must have medium-length to long hair for the layers to show more prominently. What's even better? You can switch to a stylish party look by simply tousling your hair or creating loose waves!
15. Luxurious Hollywood Waves
If you want to glam things up a bit, luxurious Hollywood waves make for a great option! This ultra-glamorous hairdo will make you feel like a million bucks and be the center of attention at every party.
To create this drop-dead gorgeous hairstyle, create a side part and back-comb your hair at the roots to create volume. Divide your mane into multiple vertical sections; spritz some heat protectant hairspray on each section before winding it on a flat iron. After setting your hair on the iron, spritz a generous amount of tousle waves hairspray to create gorgeous waves. Once your waves cool down, mist them with a strong-hold hairspray to set the style for longer wear.
You can also sweep all your tousled hair on one side to create a picture-perfect one-shoulder hairstyle!
