French term or phrase: carrés sous toutes les coutures sauront mettre en valeur
This is a promotional text for a line of salon hair products. The entire text is really about these colouring products, hair treatments, and the weight of the brand.

Si pour les femmes les coupes courtes déstructurées sont des incontournables de la saison, les carrés sous toutes les coutures sauront mettre en valeur les traits de beaucoup d’entre elles.

No other mention has been made to coutures or clothing, and I cannot find anything later on so this is just being used as emphasis to the text is all I can assume, but it's not my area at all....

square cuts of different kinds will flatter/highlight
Explanation:
The phrase "sous toutes les coutures" is an idiomatic expression meaning "from every angle" or "in detail".
Here I would say it is being used to mean "of different kinds," as in "different kinds of square cuts" in contrast with the previously mentioned "destructured cuts."
