Square Cut: 16 Ways to Wear this Style
Pair a classic square cut with some major volume at the front of your style and fake thicker hair while you’re at it. Swap out your usual shampoo and conditioner for Bed Head for Men by TIGI Charge Up Thickening Shampoo and Bed Head for Men by TIGI Charge Up Thickening Conditioner. This duo will thicken up your strands and give you a thicker-looking and more voluminous style.
2. Styled Waves
Run your comb under water and brush it through your wavy hair to add a touch of definition to your natural waves.
3. All Gelled Up
Remember that a little bit of hair gel goes a long way! Comb a dime-sized amount of Dove Men+Care Control Gel through the front of your hair to add some styled definition.
4. Minimal Stubble
Pair a classic square cut with minimal stubble for a sexy and still office-appropriate look.
5. Cut to the Side
Ask your barber to cut your hair so that the cut naturally parts to one side. This will make your styling routine a breeze and keep your square cut in tip-top shape for weeks at a time.
6. Spiked and Short
Keep it short and streamlined with a super short cut.
Sweep all your hair to one side for a volumized style that perfectly balances your square-shaped face.
8. Natural Waves
Arguably one of the easiest styles and cuts of the roster, this look allows you to celebrate your natural texture and wear your waves as they are.
9. Gelled Over
Remember the Dove hair gel we mentioned above? Use a dime-sized amount to create this combed-to-the-side style in just a few seconds.
10. The Styled Fade
Give the classic fade a slight upgrade by pairing it with a thick, closely-shaven beard.
11. Five o’ Clock Shadow
Opting for just a hint of a five o’ clock shadow is a great way to keep your facial hair in check and office-appropriate.
Balance a slightly longer cut with a completely clean-shaven face for a combination that’s sexy while still remaining approachable.
13. Wavy Length
The number one secret to movie star-worthy strands that feel as soft as they look is incorporating a leave-in conditioning cream into your routine. Run Suave Professionals Avocado+Olive Oil Smoothing Leave-In Conditioning Cream through damp strands for hair that’s super soft and healthy.
14. Combed Up
Use your comb or a basic hair brush to comb your hair up in the front.
15. Grow it Out
Alternatively, grow it out and wear it combed over for a little bit of dynamic length.
