It's all about softening the edges when you have a square face. This wavy shag on model Arizona Muse works beautifully with her face shape. If you have waves, let them go (most people have some natural wave in their hair, simply scrunch hair as it dries naturally).

For square faces, avoid sharp, angled cuts like the classic angled bob. And while long, side-swept bangs will hide a wide forehead, blunt bangs will only highlight them.

Ask your stylist for a soft, tapered bob that hits right at the chin. Then when styling, make sure to scrunch hair so you have some natural wave in it. Try not to wear hair back behind ears.

Add texture to hair with a dry shampoo spray, then flatiron the ends.
