17 Bold Bangs for Women with Square Faces and Glasses

Finding the perfect bangs can be such a struggle, especially for square-faced women who also wear glasses! They want to avoid anything too wide or harsh that will focus on the straight angles of your face.

Most square-faced women with glasses are looking for versatile, low-maintenance bangs that look amazing whether rocking cat-eye frames or chunky black specs that day.

If you are one of them, you can either soften up your face shape with long, sweeping bangs or break up the dimensions with some short, edgy fringe.

The right bangs can change your look instantly! Let me show you a few easy tricks to make those bangs beautiful for square faces and glasses!

Complement your square face in the best way with any of these styles of bangs and glasses!

1. Pixie with Long Thin Bangs

Many pixie cuts feature side swept bangs, but even a long bang works beautifully for short-haired women with square faces.

A layered bang looks elegant with thin hair and it also provides more shape and character for women wearing round glasses.

In addition to adding face-framing layers to a long haircut, style the bangs so they’re thick with a blunt cut. You’ll want to be sure they cover your eyebrows for the best look with your glasses.

3. Bob with Blunt Bangs

If you wear glasses and have long locks, part your hair off center and cut in a side-swept bang. The angled cut is flattering for a square face and will help any style of specs you wear stand out.

6. Long Curls

7. Afro Updo
