Top 33 Elegant Haircuts for Guys With Square Faces

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.

1.

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.

2.

Pompadour

The stylish pompadour pairs nicely with a square face. Short pompadours are best because, like the slicked back undercut, they draw less attention to the hair and more to the face. Medium to long pompadours don’t work so well because they can make the face look rectangular and too long.

3.

Buzzcuts

Since buzzcuts are short in nature, they also do a good job of highlighting a square face. Opting for something like a crew cut, butch cut, or Ivy League will emphasize your sharp facial features. Buzzcuts tend to be shorter than undercuts and pompadours, so make sure you don’t cut your hair too short. If you do, you’ll end up drawing too much attention to your face.

4.

Long Side Swept Undercut

This unique variation on the undercut was featured in our guide to the undercut, and it’s also one of the most unique hairstyles for guys with square faces. This takes the regular undercut to extremes, pushing it to its limits with chin-length hair in the front. This is also an asymmetrical style, so while one side of your head will have super long hair, the other side will have much shorter hair. This is a bold style, so if you like adventurous hairstyles, this is for you.

5.

Top Knot

The top knot is a samurai-influenced variation on the man bun. All of the hair is pulled up into a single knot on the top of the head, usually at the crown. This is sort of a hybrid long/short cut because the hair is long, but it’s drawn up into a knot. Top knots usually highlight the face, but if you leave some of your hair hanging out, you can make your hair the focal point.
