choosing the right BaNgS for your face shape

It’s crazy how a few snips in that fringe area can give you a whole new look, even on an existing haircut! But, as effortless they look, bangs require a little more effort when styling it so allow yourself five more minutes to tweak those around when you’re getting ready.

Here are our recommended choices of bang styles to go with each face shape.

Remember, the ideal face shape is OVAL, so our goal is to make every face shape look oval because of the way it is cut and styled.

1. OVAL FACE SHAPE
Good news for the oval faces out there….you can pretty much pull off any style of bangs! Play around with different bang styles as long as they compliment your existing haircut (or new!) well.

2. HEART FACE SHAPE
Heart face shapes are complimented best by either long layers that frame the face or straight across but notched bangs. Heart shape is prominent in the forehead, so the goal is to cover most or some of that up.

3. SQUARE FACE SHAPE
Square face shapes should avoid center parted bangs and super-blunt bangs. The most flattering bangs on short hair will be a side swept bang and on long hair, a slightly uneven forehead fringe. Super sharp lines will emphasize the sharp angles in the jaw line and look box-like.

4. ROUND FACE SHAPE

To off-set the roundness of the face, we choose a wispy, side swept bang. You typically don’t want to have a super short bang because it will emphasize the roundness by making your face appear shorter.
5. OBLONG FACE SHAPE
Bangs will help giving the illusion of shortening the face, so you definitely will want them! When choosing a bang style, be mindful of your hair length. If your hair is short, go with a more side swept bang. With long hair, go with a straight across bang that will cover most of the forehead to help shorten the length of the face.
