Medium Haircuts for Square Faces
The type of haircut you should opt for should ideally be decided by the face shape you have. So if you have a square face shape, then opt for haircuts which would take the emphasis away from the strong facial features. A square face person tends to have strong jaw lines and the haircut that you have should typically soften these features.
Hence, for square faces, medium haircuts are the best option. The hair falls at a length around the chin and hides the strong jawlines.
Let’s look at the corresponding haircut options:
Layers – This is a hairstyle which would look good on square faces. When the hair is cut in layers around the face, it takes the emphasis away from the jawline. The layers can be cut from the top all the way down so that the hair is full of body and variety.
Wavy haircuts – Another haircut to opt for is the wavy haircut. If you have natural wavy hair, then grow it to shoulder length and maintain it there. Or else, you could lightly perm the hair ends so that waves are formed. This can be achieved by perming rollers or curling irons. The long, loose curls will sit pretty on your shoulders and hide the strong jawline of a square face.
Hairstyles without bangs – whatever haircut you opt for, avoid bangs to go with it. Bangs often accentuate the chin and if you have a square face, that is not desirable. So if you opt for layers or wavy hairstyles, you could pair them with a side or middle parting at the top but preferably, not with bangs.
Choppy haircuts – The latest trend in haircuts are the uneven, spiked hairstyles. Here the layers are accentuated by uneven lengths and the hair ends may be styled to go in different directions to create a messy, unkempt look. It is a very urban chic hairstyle to flaunt and you can have this as a medium haircut as well.
