When choosing any beard or hairstyle, you want to take into account your physical attributes.

Square faces have a strong jaw with a consistent width across the forehead, cheekbones and jawbone.

If you have a square face shape, haircuts that complement your jawline, without over emphasizing it, are your best options.

Pro tips to consider

  • Your face is highly versatile for haircuts due to your strong jaw and cheekbones
  • Natural styles of haircuts with relaxed and textured edges are the best options for you
  • The buzzcut may be one of your best calls- with your jawline you can pull it off way better than any other face shape
    • If you have a receding hairline, you may want to avoid this one as it will expose your hairline more actively
  • Your beard style and haircut are a complimentary pair. Take a look at our beard styles for square face shapes.
