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 from forehead the forehead to jawline.

If you have a square face shape, beards that complement your jaw, without over emphasizing it, are the best options for you. By sticking to shorter styles you’ll expose your natural jaw angularity. You can also afford to keep the lines of your beard a bit more natural as it can actually help to soften your jawline.
