1. The Textured Lob

Here’s model Rosie Huntington Whitely exquisitely and wordlessly explaining why the layered bob is perfect for a square face. This is a very piecey and chunky bob with a lot of texture to it, given by its many layers. The great thing about it is that it’s absolutely miraculous if you happen to have thin hair. The multiple layers will create the illusion of added volume and depth.

We also love the color of her hair, a rich honey and caramel blonde, streaked with a bit of beige toward the ends. It softens her deeply angled face, making it look a lot more feminine.

2. Long and Sleek

Nobody does elegance and grace quite like supermodel Lily Aldridge. Here she is presenting another entry on our best hairstyles for square faces list. It’s extremely simple, but that’s not the only reason you’ll love it. Basically, all you need to do is part your hair down the middle and use your flat iron to straighten it. Then apply a generous amount of glossing agent to make it all shiny.

However, the real magic is what this hairstyle does for your face. It really brings out your cheekbones and jawline, making you look like a supermodel too.

3. The Very Deep Side Part

Many stylists advise women with square faces to part their hair on the side, as far as they can, within reason. Taking into account the geometry of the face, this will essentially cut your face’s square shape and create a much nicer frame. Apart from that, it will offset the squareness entirely. If you have any asymmetries in your face, it will deemphasize them. In fact, the side part is amazing for any face shape, not just the square one.

4. Side Bangs

A lot of women with square faces are very reluctant when it comes to cutting or even wearing bangs. However, the best part of all stylists says we should be enjoying bangs instead of banishing them to other faces more suitable than ours.

However, you should avoid the blunt ones that will add even more structure and angles to an already deeply angled face. Instead, go for soft, side bangs. You can even curl them, just like Salma Hayek did for this photo shoot. They will make you look extremely feminine and like a true bombshell.

We know that a square face is not the easiest of facial structures to work with. However, if you learn the correct ways in which to style the geometry of your face, you will never have to worry about it again.
