Thinking about changing your look this season? Adding bangs can be a great way to go! Before taking the plunge, finding out what bangs will suit your face shape best is a good idea.
If your face is on the rounder side, consider a gentle arching fringe. If your face is round, it is likely you have softer features. You want to be sure to avoid making your round face seem fuller. Asking for a more curved shape will actually flatter and bring out your cheekbones.
Side bangs are perfect for a heart shaped face. The side swept bang tends to bring attention downwards to the eyes. If your face is heart shaped, the bangs should be layered and feathered. The shortest pieces should fall just barely on the arch of your eyebrows, and the longer outside piece should hit the corner of your eye.
If you have a square face, consider long eye-grazing bangs. Ask for them to be tapered on the sides, this will add a softer element to a square face shape. The key to these kinds of bangs is that they must hit in exactly the right spot. A good tip to master this is to ask your hairdresser to cut them just slightly below the brows with the heavier stronger pieces on the side (you don’t want them in the way of your eyes!
Be sure to choose bangs that accentuate your best facial features and you won’t go wrong!
