Earlier this month, we posted some of our favorite haircuts for guys with round faces. In this post, we’ll be looking haircuts for guys with square faces. We’ll go over some stylistic tips to help you get the most out of a square face.

Key Points

The square face are widely considered to be the most masculine face shape, and it looks great with a wide variety of hairstyles. It’s characterized by a prominent jawline, a square forehead, and straight sides. As a result, a square face is quite angular and sharp. The key is to soften the face’s angles.

If you have a square face shape, you should emphasize either your hair or your facial features. To emphasize your hair, go with a longer cut, preferably one with similar lengths on the top and sides/back. To emphasize your face, go with a tighter, shorter cut.

Avoid center parting or cuts with heavy fringes. These throw your face off balance and detract from its strong features.

If you’re not sure where to begin, here are some of our favorite haircuts for guys with square faces.

Undercut

The trusty undercut strikes again. The undercut is one of the best haircuts for guys with square faces because it emphasizes the face with the tight sides and styled top. We recommend keeping your undercut on the shorter side, as haircuts that aren’t short or long don’t work too well with a square face.

The slicked back undercut works especially well for accentuating facial features. Since the hair is slicked back, more attention is drawn to the face.
