Square faces have lots of angles on them: a strong jaw, and strong cheekbones. Many famous actresses and models have square faces because they photograph extremely well.

Your goal is to soften those angles. Texture, in the form of curls or choppy ends, do this brilliantly. You can also get away with short, spiky cuts and long, sleek styles with layers that start at the jawline and continue downward.

Avoid: One-length bobs (especially chin-length) and blunt-cut bangs. These will make your face look even more square. For more information, check out this photo gallery of best hairstyles for square face shapes.
