|Oval ➤ Lucky you—almost any type of bang will work. For a more daring look, get a straight, heavier bang that comes to the eyebrows. For lower maintenance, try a texturized side bang that falls to the cheekbone or a lighter, layered, softer bang.|
|Round ➤ Bangs can make a round face look even fuller, so keep them straight and on the heavier side. Make sure they aren’t too long, as this can make the face look wider.|
|Square ➤ Long front bangs that graze the eyebrows and then taper off to the sides give this face shape a softer look|
|Heart-shaped ➤ Side bangs create a nice balance. The longest part should hit right below the corner of the eye; layers are a must so they drift to the side rather than hang straight down.|
|Forehead Size ➤ If it’s small, a side bang creates the illusion of a more prominent one. Conversely, bangs that hit your brows create the illusion of a smaller forehead.|
