Women all around the world are different. They have different facial features, sets of eyes, lengths of hair, and body types. It is these differences that make every woman beautiful. All of these women are beautiful inside and out in many different ways. Many women have square-shaped faces. With a sharp and attractive jawline, their face is sure to stand apart. But for some people, these features may be too much, and they would wish to tone down this sharpness. Well, in that case, there are many hairstyles to help you out.
These hairstyles may either hide parts of your face, shift the focus from the jawline, or simply make your face look rounder and softer. Read on this list to know more about such hairstyles that are best suited for square-shaped faces.
Textured shoulder length hair
Shoulder-length hair looks gorgeous and can give your face a lift when it is much needed. The hair can be worn by parting it to the middle so that a certain effect is created, which can significantly alter your appearance and make your features look much more accentuated.
It can also make your jawline sharper. All in all, a textured haircut like this, when styled in the right way, can really contribute to making a difference just with a single haircut.
Wavy textured hair
Wavy textured hair is something of real beauty. It can also instantly transform your face and create a fresh look from the normal wavy hairstyles you’ll encounter. For square faces, especially, wavy textured hair looks best when it is maintained at shoulder length, at least.
It not only tones down your jawline’s sharpness and makes it look really soft, but it can also enhance the whole shape of your face. This hairstyle will go well with almost all outfits, too, so you can style it in different ways and colors to get a cool look.
Dynamic layered bob
The best haircut for a square-shaped face is a dynamic layered bob, making a face look round and have soft edges.
A round layered hairstyle can only make a face look much sharper than it already is and make it pointed and edgy. Add some blonde color to the hair or maybe just a few colorful streaks to get that classy look.
Short fringy Bob
A short fringe with hair that lies just below the chin can make your sharp jawline look much more round and beautiful. Often people who have square faces would be in love with how great their jawline looks, but also, sometimes, a hairstyle that will tone down the sharpness of the edge of their faces are a must.
Here, the hair lying just below the face is great at making the overall look less sharp and softer. Hence, a short fringe is a great haircut if you are into short hairstyles.
Deep side parted hair
A deep side part also works well in shifting the focus from the square pointed face instead of the long hair on your face. It takes away the squareness of the face, but it also does a brilliant job of framing the face perfectly.
It will offset the sharpness and make it a beautiful hairstyle that you just can’t take your eyes off. This hairstyle also goes along well with most outfits, so you can easily wear it for everyday glam.
Side bangs are another great option, just like the deep side-parted hairstyle, since the focus is shifted from the sharp edges of the face. With a side bang like this, you can be assured that at least part of your face will be hidden and make it look more round and perfect.
Basically, side bang hairstyles are more suited for square-shaped people than round-faced ones since such a hairstyle can only make their hair look even rounder than it is.
Layered shaggy lob
An edgy layered hairstyle can make a significant difference in making your hair look rounder and giving it a great shape. A bob haircut has always been in vogue, but these days it is the lob hairstyle that is making the trends worldwide.

Simply tie back your hair in a formal up-do and then pull out a few loose layers, but don’t pull them out entirely to keep hanging on the face.
Messy layered hairstyle
A layered hairstyle, especially a short one that hangs around your chin or shoulders, perfectly rounds your face and frames it in the right manner. Add some beautiful blonde or caramel highlights or streaks, and you’ve got yourself one of the best hairstyles that you could ever ask for.
