Which Bangs Are for Your Face?

Bangs For Your Face Shape
Try on bangs for a round face in our virtual makeover studio. Full faces tend to appear fuller and rounder with the addition of bangs (we call it the china doll effect), but surely if you crave this trend there's not stopping you. Round face shapes can opt for wispy, soft bangs to spotlight beautiful eyes without overpowering your face. Blow dry them with a round brush to shape them under and give them softness. Best of all, they can be brushed back and away when the mood strikes with a bit of styling mousse. As a general rule, try not to create too much volume at the top of your head.

Try on bangs for an oblong face in our virtual makeover studio. Full fringe like Anne Hathaway in The Devil Wears Prada is most stylish with hair that hits below the shoulders unless you're going for a Cleopatra effect. Longer bangs soften a long face or prominent forehead and they dramatize eyes and cheekbones.

Try on bangs for a heart shaped face in our virtual makeover studio. If you have a heart shaped face and desire bangs, keep them light (ask your stylist to texturize them) and accent them with layers that fall at the jawline. Deeply parted and side-swept bangs are your best bet.

Try on bangs for a square face in our virtual makeover studio. For an ultra pretty look if your face is square, play down the strongest angles of your face by creating a deep side part and styling your bangs straight forward, toward your eyes (this works especially well if you have face-framing layers). Use your fingers to sculpt them into piecey bits.
