When looking for a cool addition to your typical haircut, you can always count on a fringe to change your look completely! Have you ever wondered how do I know if I’ll look good with bangs? Ask no more, because we’ve prepared for you a guide with classic, curly, supershort, asymmetrical, and many more cute and different types of bangs you can go for if you haven’t decided yet on what type of fringe you want!

Types of Bangs According to the Shape of the Face

The bangs are in high demand this season. Choose the one that perfectly fits the shape of your face, so that it can frame your features harmoniously, minimizing the defects and highlighting the pluses! In general, the bangs harmonize the face of any wearer and even reduce the real age by a few years, softening the features.

1: If you have a heart-shaped face, with a rather wide forehead, high cheekbones, and a narrow chin…

… wear bangs with rare strands, cut in stairs, so that the shortest parts reach the level of the eyebrows, and the longest ones it reaches the corners of the eyes. This will create a messy, casual look. If on certain days you want a slight change, you can wear the bangs combed to one side.

Avoid straight and thick bangs, which cover the entire forehead and tighten the features.

2: If you have an elongated face, long vertical, without right angles, with a narrow forehead and chin…

… wear messy bangs, asymmetrical, cut-in stairs, whose side strands extend to the corners of the eyes, thus balancing the elongated shape of the face. You can wear it both on the forehead and combed on one side, or with a path in the middle.

Avoid short bangs (ending more than an inch above the eyebrows).

3: If you have a round face, with full cheeks and a not very well-defined jaw…

… wear thick bangs, which end at the level of the eyebrows. The M-shaped bangs (a longer idea on the edges and in the middle) benefit from a round face, giving it structure.

Avoid sparse and/or short bangs (ending more than an inch above the eyebrows). Both tend to accentuate the round shape of the face.

4: If you have a square face with a rather wide forehead, prominent cheekbones, and a well-defined jaw…

… wear sparse, long, and asymmetrical bangs, cut in stairs, whose side strands extend to the corners of the eyes, thus sweetening the rigidity of the square face.

Avoid short bangs and straight and thick bangs. Both tend to tighten their features.

5: If you have an oval face with a high forehead, contoured cheekbones, symmetrical features, finely curved…

… wear any kind of bangs.

Avoid thick and long bangs (up to the level of the eyebrows), or the ultra-short ones are dramatic variants worth trying.
