The Best Bangs For Your Face Shape
BANGS are huge right now-even Michelle Obama made the chop! Bangs or fringe as it is called in the UK can make a boring cut edgy. They can take years off a face and they bring attention to the eyes. They are flattering on all face shapes. The right bangs can be super flattering and are a nice update when you don’t want a drastic change, but need a little style shakeup.
Before you run to the salon, or grab your hair straightener for a DIY job, it is very important to pick the right style for your face shape. Here are some expert tips for scoring the best fringe for your face.
Go for heavy or blunt bangs that go below the eyebrows covering most of the forehead and giving the illusion of an oval face, which accentuates the cheekbones, like the looks of Kerry Washington here.
This face shape usually has a long forehead or jaw-line, so try long, layered bangs that extend to the outer corners of the eyes like Gabrielle Union’s. It gives balance.
This is a very versatile face shape, so any kind of bangs look good: short, long, or side swept are all great options. This face will also look great in choppy bangs.
Side swept bangs or middle swept are the best options because they give an oval effect, slimming the face and defining the cheekbones.
Wispy, choppy bangs soften a square shaped face.
