With their elegant lines, square face shapes require a different approach to chooising a hairstyle than oval, heart or round faces. The right haircut makes all the difference, so it's important to get one that makes the most of your gorgeous features!

Below, we have a few tips to help you do just that.

Try bangs

For square-shaped faces, bangs are always a great option. A subtly rounded fringe that tapers out towards the sides will create a really flattering frame for an angular face. Piecey, wispy bangs work really well whereas blunt bangs can seem overly harsh due to the added angles they create.

Try a medium or long cut

Long bobs look great on anyone but they look especially good with square shaped faces. The medium length cut will soften the jawline, and it looks great with a textured, wavy finish. The same goes for longer styles, too.

How to add texture

Apply Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray to dry or damp hair, then blow-dry it in twisted sections. If you would prefer to skip the heat styling, pin your hair up into two loose buns and leave it to dry on its own.

Once dried, shake your fingers through your mane and scrunch a little Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends to add more texture. Mist your tousled waves all over with hairspray and you're all set!
