Hairstyles for Square Faces With Thick Hair

Women with thick hair often want to find ways to thin their hair out because thick hair is harder to style. But for women with square faces--generally characterised by strong, angular jaw lines and broad, wide foreheads, all seemingly equal in length--this may not be a good idea. Styles to avoid are: thin, straight styles; short styles; angular styles; square fringe; short fringe; and horizontal styles.

Feathered Hair

Hairstyles that are feathered at the top and soft around the ears are well-suited to women with square faces and thick hair. Feathered, thick hair exudes an elegant, feminine and almost Victorian appeal.

Long and Curly

Long, thick curls are classy, yet sexy, on a woman with a square face and thick hair. This look thins out the face and draws attention away from the jawline. Long hair will create an illusion of a longer, thinner face.

Layers and Bangs

Long, thick layered hair with long fringe that sweep off to one side will give an asymmetrical feel to a square and symmetrical face shape . This look softens the lines of the face and creates a feminine feel.

Hair Color

Light hair colours soften the lines of a square face and add a soft, feminine feel to it. Dyeing darker hair to a lighter shade or just adding lighter highlights can do the trick.

Parting Hair

Side parts with volume at the top and sides will draw attention away from a square face and make the face look longer. This hairstyle also looks good with thick hair and is easy to accomplish.

Short and Choppy

If you want to go with a short hairstyle, this is the one to go with. Short and choppy layers that go in all directions draw attention away from a perfectly square face. This style is also a modern style that is perfect for those trying to accomplish a young and trendy look.
