Do you have a square face shape? Check out how you can style your hair!

If you a have a square face shape, then you are in fabulous company with the likes of Angelina Jolie, Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Aniston. These ladies may have angular jawlines and high foreheads to deal with, but they know how to work their face shape and, let’s face it, are known as some of the most beautiful women in the world!

To find out if you have a square face shape, look in the mirror and check for the following features:
- A high, broad forehead
- Your forehead, cheekbones and jawline are pretty much equal in width
- A square or angular jawline
- Equal length to width proportion

Once you have established that you are a square, you’ll need to assess if your current hairstyle is the best for you. Check out your fellow squares below and see how they are rocking their hair!

Angell Conwell Medium Curly Hairstyle for Square Face Shapes

Angell Conwell knows that curls are a square face’s best friend and looks flawless in this medium curly ‘do. As a square face shape, you really don’t want to go any shorter than this unless you are going for a full-on short hairstyle—meaning, avoid any hairstyles that end near the jawline. In addition to the great length, Angell is flaunting a gorgeous side-swept fringe, which is perfect for softening up square face shapes.


Jessica Stam Medium Straight Hairstyle for Square Face Shapes

In another version of the medium hairstyle, Jessica Stam goes for smooth, sleek layers around the face and a centre part. While some square face shapes can pull off a centre part, most would do better with a deep side part so just keep this in mind if you want to copy this hairstyle. The heavy layering around the jawline is a fabulous feature of this hairstyle and will work for every square, and the flicked out ends are a great way to detract from angular jawline.


Robin Meade Updo Hairstyle for Square Face Shapes

If you’re in the mood to tie your hair back, check out this up-do as seen on Robin Meade. This is the perfect way for square faces to wear their hair for elegant occasions. The deep diagonal side part is ideal for square face shapes and the low side bun offsets a wide jawline. Squares look fabulous in smooth and sleek ‘dos so try this one out to show off your fabulous facial features.


Olivia Wilde Long Wavy Hairstyle for Square Face Shapes

Finally, we have Olivia Wilde in a long curly hairstyle that will suit square face shapes to a T. Again, Olivia has gone for a centre part but most squares will have a better result with a deep side swept part. Olivia’s hair is long and her layers are long and face framing. Squares really do need layers around the face to make the most of their features so avoid blunt, one length cuts at all costs. This hairstyle would look great worn sleek and straight, but Olivia’s soft waves add a nice softening effect that most squares will appreciate.

These hairstyles are all great ideas for square but remember that squares are also known for looking the best with their hair pulled back, so when in doubt just go for a simple bun or ponytail.
