Square Face Shape

Square Face Shape woman

How to determine the Square Face shape:
•The face appears to be as wide as it is long
•The chin and cheekbones are broad
•The forehead, cheeks, and jawline are the same width.
•A square face becomes round with only a little extra weight gain

GOAL: To soften the squareness of the face by visually narrowing the forehead and jawline.
•Add volume in the area of the eyes and the top the head away from the jawline.
•Curves and soft angles help to soften the squareness of the face.

•Short styles
•Angular styles
•Heavy bangs

•Wear a hat at an angle to soften the squareness of the face. 

Your best styles are round or oval frames with soft curves.

Look for earrings that are longer than they are wide.
