Long Hairstyle Square Face

Posted on

Square faces are one of the most versatile when it comes to styled hair cuts and colour. Whether you like the edgy look of shorter locks or the openness of longer layers, a square face shape lends itself to a myriad of hair styling possibilities. Plus, it is bang-friendly, which means you don’t have to be discouraged when it comes to thinking up creative ways to lessen longer forehead spaces. To get you started, here is a quick guide to the best haircuts for square faces.

Strawberry Blonde Long Graduated Layer

Highlighted roots are an interesting way to frame your square face, and the long layers of this strawberry blonde style will also help with naturally rounder results. The secret to this look is finding the right length. You don’t want either too much of the front layers inking with the side layers, as this can make your face look squarish and accentuate all of the wrong features. To get the best of both worlds, try asking your stylist to create this blended style that is appropriate for your specific shape and then you can enjoy it in a warm, strawberry blonde hue.

Chatting to your stylist about shorter locks isn’t something that needs to be off the table when you have a square face shape. Drawing attention of the forehead can be easily achieved by adding in a wispy fringe and opting for a nice and tight bob. This caramel brown shade adds variation to the look, whilst allowing to you natural layers to show through. To avoid the style looking too ‘boxy’ make sure to add in plenty detail around the crown area, with subtle layering on the ends.

Sideswept Bangs and Balayage

This look is perfect if you want something relatively low-maintenance and want to avoid too much styling on a regular basis. The side-swept bangs add volume to the look and make the style more interesting, whilst the balayage technique will help to bring out the various tones in the chestnut hair colour. Try to avoid too much of a sharp line when going for this look, as this can leave your style looking too square. Instead, keep the hair slightly tousled to add natural movement.

Pixie Cut with Texture

Square faces are one of the few shapes that can make a great pixie cut. With shorter layers on the top you can draw attention away from the forehead. To help add texture to the style, use a light wax to add a matte effect. It will add natural movement to the locks and help to give a tousled, undone feel to the look. Plus, short cuts are also relatively low-maintenance – perfect for those busier periods in life.

No matter what style you go for, finding the perfect cut for a square face is about embracing the shape and finding ways to highlight the unique facial features. Have fun and remember when in doubt, a good trip to the salon will do the trick.
