1. Medium & choppy

A choppy lob like this flatters your face in two ways: it rounds out the corners of your face, adding softness to your features, and at the same time, it accentuates your high cheek bones.

2. Messy updo

A messy updo with the top lightly teased will create extra height and texture. This will add length to your face and make it appear elongated instead wide and square. Spritz the top part with TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray to get the texture that you need.

3. Long & layered

Layers and length are your friends. Together, they help counter the hard edges of your face. Incorporate well-defined layers to your long locks and iron the ends, twisting them inward. This will narrow your face a bit.

 

Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Hair tends to get weaker the longer it gets because the nutrients have a hard time reaching all of your strands. Strengthen your long locks by regularly washing with Sunsilk Strong & Long Shampoo and Sunsilk Strong & Long Conditioner. It nourishes the hair as it grows so less breakage, less hair fall.

See those two straight sections of hair that hang loose on either side of the face? Those are what you need to slightly conceal the width of your cheekbones and jawline—the very areas that widen your face.

5. Rounded fringe

You could make bangs work for you by making sure the outside corners of your fringe are longer (about 1-1.5 inches) than the strands at the center. This cut will frame your face and draw the attention inward, deemphasizing the harsh edges.

6. Asymmetrical bob

An asymmetrical cut featuring longer face-framing pieces on the sides of the face and shorter at the back elongates the face and makes it appear slimmer, offsetting severe squareness altogether.

If you have a prominent jawline, parting your hair to the side instead of the middle will beautifully frame your face and downplay the sqaureness of your features.
