Looking for a bold change for your locks? Try adding bangs! Start by assessing your face shape, so you can choose a hairstyle that complements your features. We’ve put together some bang suggestions for each face shape to help you decide your next look!



A heart-shaped face includes a wider forehead that draws to a point at the chin and is full of soft angles. Opt for wispy fringe bangs or crescent bangs. If you are looking for a bold look or don’t mind an unbalanced face shape, then baby bangs are a feathery and chic option.

Those with round faces should avoid straight bangs as they accentuate the fullness of your face. Consider bangs that cut at a strong angle, like thick side-swept bangs. This flattering cut will create more length in the face, which adds extra definition to the hollows of your cheeks.

Bangs that are full and long help to create symmetry and balance for square-shaped faces. Try A-shaped bangs to soften the jawline and bring attention to your eyes or fringe bangs that hit mid eyebrow to highlight your features. Feel free to wear your bangs side-swept for a feminine allure or style together for boldness.

If you have an oval-shaped face, you’re in luck! This versatile face shape allows you to experiment with different bang types. Consider softened blunt bangs to draw attention away from an elongated mouth and chin or micro bangs for a rebellious-yet-romantic appeal. Medium bangs are a great retro look for curly tresses or if you want your bangs to have a more daring vibe.
