Adopted by singer Taylor Swift for several years and more recently by American actress Jenna Ortega, the square with bangs is one of those cuts that have no expiry date.

Easy to maintain, ultra-modern, and infinitely flexible, it’s the perfect modern cut. Rémi Billaud, Franck Provost training director, gives us his advice for adopting the square cut with bangs.

Square cut with bangs: for whom?


Contrary to what one might think. It can highlight the angular features of a face, square in shape for example, accompany the angles of a rectangular face, or add structure to a round or oval face.

The bangs can also suit a whole bunch of faces. But, the result obtained differs according to the type of bangs. A straight, thick fringe can reduce the length of an oval or elongated face, while a tapered fringe on the side or a curtain fringe can soften the angles of a square face.

How to maintain your square cut with bangs at home?

The square cut has the advantage of being easy to maintain, without having to spend hours in the bathroom. Wash your hair regularly with a shampoo and conditioner suitable for your hair type and use a wide-toothed comb to detangle wet hair and avoid breaking the ends.


The bangs require a little more attention. To keep your bangs in place, use a hair dryer and a round brush to style them forward. Then, finish your hairstyle with, if necessary, a straightener or a curling iron to give texture and shape to your bob and your bangs.

How often should you maintain your bob and bangs at the hairdresser?

As a general rule, consider a visit to the hairdresser every 6 to 8 weeks to maintain the shape and length of your bob. For the fringe, you can schedule touch-ups every 3 to 4 weeks to maintain its shape and prevent it from becoming too long and awkward.

Hair grows about one centimeter per month. If some do not see their hair grow, those who wear the square and the fringe do indeed see the difference as soon as the hair grows a few centimeters. However, the maintenance frequency may differ depending on the hair.
