Getting bangs is always a good idea, however, getting to know which fringe matches your face shape is a bit unsettling. The shape of your face should be the basis that determines how your bangs are going to look like.. Wispy and choppy or blunt and straight? Regardless of that, one rule of thumb is never imitate, chopping your front locks is not a one style that fits all.. It’s a commitment you don’t want to go wrong with, so take your cue from the categories below, however, don’t feel pressured to live by these rules. if you style it and own it, you can rock any type of bangs no matter what face shape you have!

If you’re down for something more daring, try medium bangs, which are longer than micro bangs but shouldn’t quite hit your eyebrows. “It’s a nod to retro but looks futuristic and clean,” says Reyman.

 

1 || If You Have A Round Face

Then you’re a Taylor swift. Side-swept bangs are especially flattering on round faces, which are soft around the edges and often wider in the cheeks. The angle of the bangs creates more length in your face and thus a more oval shape. Request a graphic, curved shape that will flatter your bone structure. Thick bangs, rather than wispy versions, will make more of an impact.

2 || If You Have An Oval Face

Then you’re a Dakota Johnson. Nearly every type of fringe is flattering on oval faces, as those have more length in the face than round, but are still soft at the chin. Soft, blunt bangs cut straight across visually flatter oval faces,  also noting that they can draw attention away from an elongated mouth and chin. Airy, pin-straight ones will accentuate your face without feeling bulky.  Ask for bangs that hit between the brow and the eyelash and are longer on the edges That way, you can wear them swept aside or straight with a middle part.

3 || If You Have A Long face

Then you’re a Sarah-Jessica Parker. With a long face, which typically has a higher forehead and isn’t too wide, you have a lot of area to work with—so you can be strategic about which parts of your face you want to highlight. Think of it as framing. Creating a diagonal angle on your face will help keep peoples’ eyes focused on your center features, like your eyes and lips, instead of your forehead or the lower part of your face. Cropped bangs probably aren’t your best bet, since they’ll only elongate your forehead and the length of your face overall. Keeping the fringe line low right around your eyebrows is best.

Then you’re a Rihanna. This is key for square or oblong face shapes, which tend to be wider at the cheeks and more angular, especially around the jawline. A soft A-shape works best for women with square faces, the tapered ends create angles, which help to soften your jawline and bring attention to your eyes.

Then you’re an Emma Stone. A sloping asymmetrical fringe will make a short forehead appear stronger and more pronounced. To elongate your brow, ask your stylist to cut your bangs on a steep, swooping, angle that blends into cheek-skimming layers. Although this style requires a deep side-part, it works well on virtually any face shape.

7 || If You Have A High Forehead

Then you’re a Kerry Washington. Swingy bangs have a double effect. The style’s thickness conceals the forehead, while the gradual angle opens up and widens the face. Heavy side-swept bangs that start in the center of the forehead and taper diagonally to a cheek-grazing length. It’s ok that these bangs start beyond your natural hairline. They’re substantial and need a good anchor.
