To balance it, choose long dangling earrings. You may also look cascading earrings.
For who has wide, square jaws, you can soften it with earrings that have round edges. Choose oval and circular earrings like hoops.
Large hoop earrings look really fabulous and flattering for square-faced gals. Stay away from square or diamond-shaped earrings.

Earrings for hair styles
Styling your earrings to match your hair do will make or break your look. Earrings are great at drawing attention to your face, but they must also contrast with the hair.
When you wear your hair down, it can hide any earrings you wear. If you’re going for an everyday look, a pair of stud earrings can suffice. If you want a more striking effect, a pair of gemstones, especially sparkly ones, will get noticed more.
Multiple ear piercings with a minimalist ensemble of tiny studs also work great, especially if you use studs in the same metal hue. Matching the metals will keep your look from appearing too busy.
When you wear your hair in a bun or an updo, you will free up space from your ear to shoulders, so any earring you wear can be visible. To make a statement, pick a pair of earrings that will look pretty from all angles, so your outfit will look good from front to back.
Long dangling earrings are the perfect accessory for the high bun hairstyle. Hoops are another good choice.
Short-haired women can look fantastic with earrings, as the hair will less likely distract from the ears. With a pixie haircut, earring jackets and ear cuffs can look striking. Getting a statement ear crawler can add an edgy and fresh look.
Take note that earring cuffs with a single color are a great choice to give a classy eye-catching look, rather than going for multi-colored items. Diamonds and crystals are great to consider if you want a statement cuff earring.
A shoulder-length hair creates a definite line across the shoulders. This will give you a reference point as to how big or how long your earrings can be.
