Straight Hairstyles For Square Faces: Rounding Out The Edges

1. Piecey Tendrils

Soften the angles of your face with some romantic tendrils. You could go for wispier, smaller sections but we like the bold look of these thicker face framing sections. Just style the rest of your hair back into a simple ponytail. It’s a super sleek, and very chic look.

2. Slicked Down Bob

Most straight hairstyles for square faces are going to focus on making your face look rounder. But, we also love to show off strong square face shapes! To emphasize your face shape and your straight hair opt for this slicked down style. Just create a deep side part and apply a little bit of the Nexxus New York Salon Care Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel. Comb through the gel for a sleek look.

3. Long Bangs

If you are looking to round out your square facial features, you can’t go wrong with soft bangs and rounded straight hair. Recreate this style by taking a flat iron just to the middle and ends of your hair. Loosely clamp down (so you don’t get a hard line) and ever so slightly twist the iron. This gives a slight rounded effect to straight hair.

4. Rolled Updo

For straight hairstyles for square faces that are up and out of the way, we like this rolled updo. Start this style by creating two simple braids on either side of your part and pin them at the nape of your neck. Then take the rest of your hair and roll it upwards like pin curls to cover where the braids meet. Set your style with plenty of TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Hairspray for lasting, flexible hold.

5. Chic Fishtail

Fishtail braids are one of our favorite straight hairstyles for square faces. They are so simple yet so elegant at the same time. They’re particularly great for square faces when the style, like this one, is loose and falls over the sides of the face. You can recreate the look by following our fishtail braid tutorial.

6. Straight With Lots Of Body

If you are looking to add lots of movement and volume to your straight hair, there’s no better way than the at home blowout. We recommend starting with freshly washed and conditioned hair. Let your hair air-dry for a bit and then apply some of the S Factor By TIGI Silky Smooth Serum. Then, grab your favorite professional hair dryer and round brush and follow some of our tips to achieve an awesome in-home blowout.
