Square Face:

A wide forehead and square jawbone means you have a square face. A style with the hair 2.5 cm, or so below the chin sits pretty on a square face. If your hair is thick or wavy, you can go one length. With straight or fine hair, you can opt for a slight angle in the front. Do not go in for bobs. Blunt clipped bangs are also not recommended because they would emphasize the squareness of your face. All that a square face needs is a little softening, if the jawline is too heavy. Draw the attention away from the jaw with a diagonal fringe forward from the hairline and around the ears if you wear your hair up, or long loose hair with a bit of bounce below chin level.

To find out the shape of your face, measure it with a tape measure or ruler. You will take the following measurements.
    1. Measure your face across the top of your cheekbones. Write down the measurement on a piece of paper.
    2. Measure across your jaw line from the widest point to the widest point. Write down the measurement.
    3. Measure across your forehead at the widest point. Generally the widest point will be somewhere about halfway between your eyebrows and your hairline. Write down the measurement.
    4. Measure from the tip of your hairline to the bottom of your chin.
Square - your face is about as wide as it is long.

Square Face Shape Square

A strong, square jaw line and usually an equally square hairline.


Short-to-medium length hair, especially with wave or roundness around the face. Wispy bangs will soften the angular shape. Off-center parts with height at the crown look great on square faces. You want to soften the square look of your face with layers and wispy looks around the face. Height at the crown will elongate your symmetrical shape. If your hair is straight, you may want to consider a body wave, as some curl or wave to the hair will achieve a nice balance to the straight features of your face shape.


Long straight styles that accentuate the square jawbone. "Linear" straight bangs or center parts aren't the best choice. A straight bob ending at the jaw line is the wrong thing to do for your face shape. You can wear a layered bob, however it should end above or below the jaw line, not at the jaw. Make sure in styling that you achieve some roundness to the shape and some height at the crown or bangs, and you will be on the right track.
