Top 9 Hairstyles Suitable for Square Face Shape

Before picking a hairstyle, you first need to identify your face shape. So, what is the square face? Take the following measurements (in inches or centimeters) to determine:

1. Forehead: Pull the tape measure from the peak of one eyebrow arch to the peak of the opposite arch. Record that number.

2. Cheekbones: Measure across your upper cheeks, starting and ending at the sharp bump below the outer corner of each eye.

3. Jawline: Measure your jaw across your face at its widest point (about an inch down from your ears).

4. Face length: Measure from the center of your hairline to the tip of your chin.

Square Face:All measurements are fairly similar. Your length and width proportions are equal with a forehead and jawline of similar breadth. The square face is generally considered to be the most masculine face shape, It’s characterized by a sharp jawline, a square forehead, and straight sides. So the key is to soften the face’s angles. As this face shape is versatile with different types of hair, don’t be afraid to experiment with other lengths and styles.

Here we recommend 9 hairstyles suitable for square face:

1.Comb over

If you have a square face, you must be masculine, what you should do is to emphasize either your hair or your facial features. The com over haircut could look smart, clean and perfect for a formal occasion for men with a square face and a thick hair tone.

 

2.Side Swept with part

This unique variation on the side swept is one of the most unique hairstyles for guys with square faces. This takes the regular side part to extremes, pushing it to its limits with chin-length hair in the front. This is also an asymmetrical style, so while one side of your head will have super long hair, the other side will have much shorter hair. This is a bold style, so if you like adventurous hairstyles, this is for you.

 

3. 3.Slicked Back Undercut

The slicked back undercut hairstyle is the most stylish and popular type of undercut hairstyle now. With the "short side, long top" high-contrast hairstyle, the slicked-back hairstyle has both sides -- a cool male hairstyle for business people that looks sexy on a date, party or any casual occasion. To have a smooth back cut, you need at least 3 to 5 inches of hair on top of your head.

 

4.Back and side swept

In the 1950’s and 1960’s,the popular hairstyle was the Quiff. The quiff featured a slicked back side part, but with some of the height and angle of the Pompadour and a touch of a Mohawk look. The Pompadour hairstyle has always been one of the most popular hairstyles and matches perfectly with a square shaped face. Short pompadours could highlight the face as well as the hair texture.

 

5.Top Knot

The top knot hairstyle for men, also known as the top knot bun, is a hybrid between the trendy undercut and man bun, where the entire hair is pulled to the top or the crown and tied with a band for creating a knot.

 

6.Modern Pompadour

Although the pompadour has proven itself to be an utterly timeless hairstyle, a contemporary twist can make it more relevant. The modern pompadour exaggerates each of the haircut’s components to construct a look that is striking and edgy. You can completely own this version of the cut, as long as you wear it with confidence. The angles of this haircut are more defined than the original version, , the style is particularly well-suited to those with square faces.

 

7.Short messy wavy haircut

Wavy hair offers a unique texture no other hair type can. Along with volume, movement, and natural flow, waves can look trendy and cool when paired with the right haircut styles. We particularly like the wavy fringe and short textured crop combination as two of the best haircuts for men.

 

8.Faux Hawk (Fohawk) Haircuts

The fohawk has rapidly become one of the most popular face haircut for men, due to it is trendy and edgy, like the mohawk, but still acceptable in a formal or professional office setting. Men with wavy or straight hair and a square face will find this haircut a wise choice. A slight beard can compliment this short hairstyle.

 

9.Buzz Cut

Since buzzcuts are short in nature, they also do a good job of highlighting a square face. Opting for something like a crew cut, butch cut, or Ivy League will emphasize your sharp facial features. The short nature of the hair highlights the shape of the face, but the hair should not be cut too short.
