↓ Jump to Photo Carousel

Square face shapes are defined by their strong, angular jawlines and equally wide cheekbones. To soften these bold features, a well-chosen hairstyle can make a world of difference. Renowned stylist Linda Miller has shared her expert knowledge on how to flatter and enhance a square face shape through the perfect haircut and styling techniques.

Flattering Cuts and Styles

“Opt for a hairstyle that adds softness to your face,” advises Miller. “You can achieve this by focusing on the hair around your face.” A long, layered cut with face-framing strands is an excellent choice. This style creates a softening effect by drawing attention away from the jawline.

Working with Different Hair Textures

If you prefer shorter styles, Miller recommends a lob (long bob) or a pixie cut with texture at the crown. These cuts add volume to the top of the head, balancing the angular features below. To further soften the edges, consider side-swept bangs or a deep side part. These details help to elongate the face and draw the eye away from the square jawline.
