If you have fine but want to keep it long you need to think about how you can make it appear thicker, adding layers and some high lights will make your hair appear thicker instantly. Also if you have blonde hair you may want to think about going darker, blonde hair looks thinner then dark hair you may be pleasantly surprised with the change.

Layers around your face will soften the harsh angles of your jaw, nose and cheeks. Long layers that begin at the jaw and continue downwards complement a square face and look fab when paired with a side swept fringes.

Large curls are very softening and pretty on a girly girl, combining large lose curls with a side fringe is fab on the younger generation or for a night out with the girls. As long as you keep height at the crown of the head you can’t go wrong with big bouncy curls.

If you’re trying to decide what length to wear your long locks then consider a few inches just below the jaw line it will look super feminine teamed with wispy layers around the face to soften your features.

When thinking how to wear your long hair avoid centre parts, straight fringes and the poker straight look. Try a side parting and add waves to your hair by blasting it off with the hair dryer then add some large Velcro rollers just before it dries, spritz with hair spray lightly once they have dried and gently pull the rollers out to reveal soft feminine waves that compliment your face perfectly!

Angelina Jolie is a perfect example of a square faced beauty that gets it right all the time whether she’s going for sleek and sexy or big and bouncy, she’s a fabulous inspiration is you love a bit of glamour.
