Let's be honest. Sometimes it just gets so overwhelming looking at a magazine of hairstyle options when you make the annual trip to the hair salon. I've been in that boat, and I think every woman has. Whether trying to keep up with the trends or attempting to find a style finally you will want to keep for longer than five minutes, it is so easy to throw up your hands, tie your hair in a bun and call it a day. I saw this happen most recently with my sister. We have always had separate struggles when it comes to our looks, and most recently this has presented itself as issues with hair.
We both have fragile hair - which is one of the reasons I have worn wigs for so long - and she wanted to give it a try. However, I have a round face, and her jaw is bluntly squared off. So when she took one of my wigs to try, she was frustrated because she needed something to soften her features.
The Paltrow Approach
Unlike myself who can't get away with long locks, women with square faces look gorgeous with long flowing hair - real Rapunzel status. If you are looking for a celebrity to model yourself after, I suggest diving into the detailed chronology of the Gwenyth Paltrow style. From her longer hairstyles that blanketed the sharp lines of her face to her bob phase, Gwenyth has pioneered the style book for those with square faces. Something to notice about her approach is that no matter the look, she always kept a middle part that allowed her hair to "curtain" around her face to soften the squareness of her features.
There are hundreds of options for women with square faces, but here are four that the Wig Experts highly recommended for my sister and those with the strinking and stunning square face:
Fortune by Ellen Wille
Gisele by Jon Renau
Queenie by Vivica Fox
Vivica Fox is a legend in the beauty world, so it shouldn't be a shock to see her name on this list. For those women with ethnic hair and are looking for that natural look, and I would suggest any wig from her line. This one is good because it gives volume, and causes the face to appear slimmer and less angular. Honestly, you cannot go wrong with this wig, it's simply adorable!
Grand Entrance by Raquel Welch
This wig is the one I gifted to my sister. Though on the pricier side, if you are looking for a wig that will last a long time and be of the highest quality, I would suggest Grand Entrance. The voluminous, soft waves soften the angles of square faces and give you that movie star perfection quality every time. You've got to give to give this one a try!
