Even gorgeous celebrities take pause to think about their face shape before they cut their hair. Miley Cyrus, Lily Adridge, and Jessica Biel have all used their hair to make the most of their face shape. Though you’ll need to consider the length of your hair, the texture, and the amount of time you’re willing to spend on your do each day as well as your face shape, taking your cues from some square-faced celebrities can create outcomes that you can be happy about.

If you want a longer length to your hair, then you might consider creating layers that gradually get longer and longer. Situate that first layer at about the chin area. This will help to offset the strong, angular jawline that characterizes the square-shaped face. Make sure that your layers turn in toward your face as well. Layers that curl inward will help move the eye toward the center of the face to make it look less wide. In contrast, layers that flip outward from the head will broaden a square shaped face. This can make even a thin square-shaped face look chubby.

If you’re after super short hair, make sure that you get a do that’s going to create length in your face. Miley Cyrus has gotten a lot of press for her pixie cut which creates extra height on top of her head. That extra height has given her face the illusion of being longer, which is flattering. Extremely short hair like this can make a bold statement, but on a square-face it can be quite attractive.

And finally, if you have a square face consider bangs when you go to get your next hair cut. A rounded fringe cut can help to create a frame around the outer edges of the face, which draws the eye inward. The bangs should be rounded with the outer edges just slightly longer than the center by about an inch to an inch and a half. By rounding out the bangs, you’ll softer the angular features of the face considerably. The rounded fringe has a decidedly slimming effect on the face.
