The square face are widely considered to be the most masculine face shape, and it looks great with a wide variety of hairstyles.

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.
