What Are the Best Bangs for Your Face Shape

Bangs can make you look like an entirely different person, which is why you should try wearing them at least once in your lifetime. However, you need to be careful to choose the right kind of bangs if you want to flatter your face. After all, different styles will flatter different women, because we're all built uniquely. In order to make sure you get the cutest look possible, here are the best bangs for your face shape:

1 Square Shaped Faces

Square faces look best with wispy, eye grazing bangs, especially if they're tapered on the side. You want to avoid cutting them straight across, because you don't want them to look too blunt, because it will only add harshness to your face. The point of your bangs should be to make your square face look softer.

2 Round Shaped Faces

If you have a round face, you should try the side swept look (but make it choppy). It'll flatter you more than straight across bangs would. Of course, if you really want to wear your bangs straight across, you can. Just don't cut them too high up on your head. It's better for them to graze your eyes.

3 Heart Shaped Faces

This is another face shape that benefits from side swept bangs. However, you don't want to style your bangs to look choppy like people with round faces should. Instead, you need to stick to long, swooping bangs that will draw attention to your gorgeous cheekbones.

4 Oval Shaped Faces

All of you ladies with oval faces are about as lucky as it gets. You can pull off absolutely any type of bangs, so just pick whichever style you like the best. There's no way for it to ruin your flawless look, so you can try wearing every single style you see on this list.

5 Diamond Shaped Faces

There's nothing wrong with showing your forehead when you have a diamond face. That's why you'll look best wearing side bangs. If you have your heart set on straight across bangs, part them to the sides, so that your forehead is still visible.

6 Oblong Shaped Faces

If you wear your bangs straight across your forehead, make sure that you wear them down to your eyebrows. If you style them too short, then it will pull your face down, which you don't want. Of course, you still have options, because when you don't feel like wearing them straight across, you can part your bangs in the middle, or push your bangs to the side.

7 Small Foreheads

If you have a small forehead, you won't have all that much room for your bangs. That's why you'll benefit from tiny, wispy bangs. They won't look too dramatic, but they'll still look stylish.

8 Large Foreheads

If you have a large forehead that you wish was smaller, then bangs will be your best friends. Try wearing them straight across your head to give the illusion of having a smaller forehead. Make sure they're long enough to hit your brows, but aren't so long that they cover your beautiful eyes.

You'll never know exactly what you'll look like with bangs until you try them out, so be brave and head to the salon. What's your favorite way to wear your bangs?
