hair1We told you last week that bangs are definitely in style this fall; both straight across and side-swept bangs. Bangs are flattering on all face shapes, but the catch is finding the right bangs for the shape of YOUR face. Ideally you want to give the appearance that your face is as oval as possible, even if you have a heart shaped, long, round, or square shape. The right bangs can do just that.

Your hair texture is going to be crucial when deciding what bangs you should have. Sorry to those with curly hair, bangs may not be the thing for you. Unless you straighten them, all bangs are going to do are poof up on you.

Let us give an example of what type of bangs go with what face shape. If you have a square face your jaw is almost as wide as your cheekbones, and you have hard angular features. Your goal is to soften those angles. The best type of bangs for this face shape are long, side-swept bangs. The key to these bangs is to ensure they’re tapered on the sides and are longer than they are above the brow. Wispy is a good term to use for these bangs.
