Face Shapes

What is Square Face Shape?

A square face is one of the most common faces in the world. It is a shape where a person has equal length on both sides of their jawline and forehead. It looks similar to a rectangle but is not completely one shape.

The goal should be to take attention completely away from the jawline and put it on the length of the hair.

There are many different styles which work on square shaped faces. Wavy, Dramatic Side Parts, Textured Layers, Long Curvs on the long haier. Middle-Lenght or Shoulder-Lengh, Textured, Volumizing or Bangs – it all will work fine. If you have short hair, try Textured Pixie or a Pageboy.

What is Rectangle Face Shape?

A rectangle face is a shape where a person has equal length on all four sides of their jawline and forehead. Rectangular face shapes feature a square jaw and a face that’s longer than it is wide.

The number one rule is you don’t want anything super harsh that accents the length of your face. Fringes are great at shortening face length, but you need to get the cut just right. Soft curls and waves in longer hair will lift your features, while upping the volume of your hair at the sides will give the illusion of a shorter face shape.

Medium length haircuts on top and sides will be your best choice. A classic side part works well for guys with a square face, as long as you keep the length on the sides. A fringe will add width to your face, so consider that too. If you want to grow a beard, keep it short.
