Transcript:Best Haircuts for Square Faces Over 50

Hi I am Corene Camp Professional Hairstylist in Ft. Worth Texas, with About.com here today I will show you how to create a haircut for a square face woman over 50.

Tips for Haircuts for Square Faces Over 50

A really strong jaw line determines a square face, and she has a strong jaw line with very little roundness at the chin. The best haircuts for a square face woman over 50, is a short haircut with volume above the jaw line or a longer cut with volume just below the jaw line. With a short haircut we want to disguise the sharpness of the jawline, for this we will add a lot of height, right above it, and at the temples to round it out. Also, with a narrow forehead and strong jaw line, we want a textured or fringed, straight across bang to widen the face.

Haircut Ideas for Square Faces Over 50

A great haircut for a square face woman over 50, we want a lot of layers towards the top nothing too straight and long that would weigh the hair down. Leave a little length beyond the hairline give a wispy look and give a little weight behind the jawline to soften the face. A light wispy bang and some volume at crown will give a fun look with being too edgy.

Things to Remember When Getting Haircut to Complement a Square Face

So remember, with a square face don't be afraid of a little more volume at the sides and the top, add more layering around the cut, and play with a short fringy bang, and leave a little length in the back.
