Getting the right bangs for your face shape can make a whole lot of difference to your look!
Japanese hair stylist Eisho Takahashi went one step further as his analysis to decide on the right bangs takes into account your face shape as well as facial features and bone structure.
Keep reading to find out what type of bangs will flatter your face and highlight your best features!
#1 High & wide cheekbones with narrow jawline
These two ladies' original bangs style is too thin and airy, making their faces look even wider at the cheekbones.
Their new haircut has denser and shorter bangs in the middle with longer ends on the temples which creates a more proportionate look and draws attention to her eyes!
#2 Full cheeks
Ladies with full cheeks have a cute and youthful look, but bangs that are too airy and light may make your face look wide and chubby.
Go for a thicker side swept fringe instead with long ends at the temples. The voluminous fringe softens your facial features and slims your face while still highlighting your cheekbones.
#3 Round face shape
Bangs that are too narrow and fall below your eyebrows can make your face look even rounder!
Wide, see-through bangs enhances your facial features and adds structure to a round face.
You can also opt to have long curled bangs at the temples that end below your jawline for a slimming effect.
#4 Low cheekbones and round face shape
Ladies with round face shapes and low cheekbones are often tempted to have bangs sweeping around the face in an effort to make your face look smaller like this lady. However, this can look messy and hide your best facial features.
Take notes from her 'after' bangs and get neat side bangs that end slightly below the eyebrow on one side and longer bangs on the other side. This elongates your face and makes your eyes look bigger!
#5 Square face shape
Ladies with a square face shape can look good in bangs too! Go for airy, side swept bangs that are longer at the sides. Have layers of curled, long bangs at the side of your face to soften your jawline.
