Textured hairstyles such as curls, waves or choppy ends work well to reduce the appearance of the square jawline. Elongated, sleek styles that cascade from the jawline also work well. Bangs swept to the side work best with square faces, as well as short cuts with choppy edges.
A square face is characterized by a forehead, a jawline, and cheekbones that are the same or very similar in width. Hairstyles that highlight the angular features in a square face should be avoided, such as wide, straight-edged bangs and one-length bobs. Choppy bangs work well with square faces, and chin-length bobs are not recommended.
