Some women have square faces and think that they have the worst face shape. While it is true that square shaped faces tend to look less feminine, you should still love what you are born with. With the right hairstyles, square faced women can look just as attractive as other women. Some of the hottest female celebrities have square shaped faces and they (Angelina Jolie & Demi Moore) all look extremely stunning with the right hairstyles. This hub talks in details about all the hairstyles that are flattering for a woman with square face.

Short hairstyles – Women with square faces can have short hairstyles. However, it should not be too short to reveal the squareness of the face. If the squareness of the face is too obvious, it can make you look less feminine. It is good to have wavy hair that hits just below the widest part of your face. Done this way, the hair effectively hide the squareness and make you look very feminine. Big soft wavy hair that hugs the jawline is very flattering for a woman with square face.

Medium hairstyles – Women with square faces have an easier time with medium length hairstyles then short hairstyles. Medium length tends to be longer and can effectively draw the eyes away from the angular jawline. A mid length bob that tapers to the chin is the best medium length hairstyle for you. It will frame the face and create a very soft feminine look. Simple and blunt hairstyles are generally what you should avoid. Curls and wavy at the widest part of your face (where the jawline is most angular) can make the square face look feminine and soft.

Long hairstyles – Lots of long hairstyles are flattering to women with square faces. The key to flattering a square face is through lots of textures and carefully permed wavy hair. Side parted bangs are really good for those with square shaped faces. It adds a very feminine touch to an otherwise slightly masculine face. You should also perm your hair to give yourself big waves. It will give you a very feminine looking face. It will help you achieve a more oval face. The square face should avoid blunt cuts or straight bangs because those things tend to emphasize the squareness of your face. Long hair is okay as long as it goes pass the shoulder.
