If you have square face shape, you know hun, you look like Olivia Wilde for your face shape. A shape built with character. And you know what? The best hairstyle that matches your look are styles that will smooth out the edges to give your face a slightly rounder look and soften your jawline. By the time we are done with you honey? You will be strutting the, ‘I am a strong, sexy and confident woman’ look, not saying that isn’t what you are already, but you will be doing it with pizzazz this time. Hmm..You know? I think we can achieve this with a short, medium or even a long length hairstyle! The most important thing to remember is that with such a unique shape we need to go for hairstyles that will compliment your face but not draw too much attention to your angles; which are a prominent feature of your face shape. We’re gonna look at a few types of styles for each of the hair lengths I’ve mentioned to give you an idea of what you can expect from them.
With a short style, you could get a fringe which is layered in such a way that it will draw attention to your cheekbones away from your jawline, or a bob with bangs on the side which will frame your face nicely or even a pixie cut; yes, you can get away with it if you layer the hair at the front making it dramatic so as to draw peoples eyes and attention to it, the secret is in the layering *shh!
Now, if you want to go for a medium length hairstyle you could have the hair falling nicely down the sides; loose curls or straight is up to you, then you could have a rounded fringe which will give your face a rounder look, or you could have bangs that you sweep to the side which will flatter your gorgeous cheekbones.
If you want to go for a carefree look then you could even get a shaggy lob, which is really a long bob; this is a dramatic cool look on its own which will catch peoples attention and also minimizes the appearance and sharpness of your angular jawline.
A long hairstyle is a fantastic way to go as well. You can have an off centre, side or even a centre parting, the choice is yours. You can spice up the look depending on how you feel by getting long layers, choppy waves or even going for the really curly curls. But what these styles will do for your face is give it the appearance of a smooth rounded look, soften the jaw area and also draw attention away from it.
Now when it comes to your make-up our aim is to soften the look of your shape further. So, what we are going to do is contour the face to give it more of a roundish look. We’ll contour the sides of your face such as your temples and jaw area, then we’ll highlight the middle area of your face; that is your nose, forehead and chin area to draw attention to the centre of your face away from the angular outer areas. Highlighting your cheekbones is a must as well as this will also soften the square features of your face and will give you the fresh and ready to go look. Keep your eyebrows looking natural with a gentle arch, and when it comes to your eyes don’t be afraid to add colour as this will draw attention to the centre of your face, also a fantastic way to make and keep eye contact with the gorgeous guys who will be doing double takes by the time your makeover is complete!
For your kissable lips just wear bright or head turning lipstick as this will help draw attention inwards to the centre of your face and away from your jaw line, as well as add to the beautiful work of art your face will look like.
And finally for your sunglasses, the important thing to keep in mind is to always go for glasses that are the opposite of your type of face shape, this way it will balance out the proportions of your face and even complement your strong features; this is because the magic curvy frames work on square faces is to soften your angles. This means cat eyes, oval, pilot glasses or even round framed glasses would suit your face shape. All of these will go a long way to balance out the proportions of your face by giving it a longer and slimmer look.
So, you see how hairstyles, make-up and even the sunglasses you wear can be used to not just cover or hide certain features you have, but also work the other way round to compliment those features that some might view as a disadvantage? That is the importance of understanding ones body; and knowing your face shape is a great way of doing that as that is the only way you can work with what you have to turn what might seem like a negative into a super plus positive.
