Bangs are beautiful! Here some tips and tricks on how to style and wear that lovely fringe based on your face shape. All faces are different and not everyone fits into these shapes “exactly”. But either way, one or several of the below suggestion will definitely work for you. So give bangs a try!
Heart shaped face
wider forehead, and smaller jawline and chin
Bang suggestion: Side swept and wispy. The side swept pulls the eyes down to your beautiful eyes, lips and disguises width in the forehead.
Oval shaped face
wider forehead, prominent cheeks, face tapers towards the chin
Bang suggestion: Whatever shape you want! Oval shaped faces look great with most bangs.
Try: Blunt heavy bangs! Always a bold and fun statement.
Square shape face
widths of your brow, cheekbones and jaw are almost equal
Bang suggestion: Soft and rounded lash grazing bangs. Square shaped faces can be softened with a long rounded shape. The roundness of the bangs cancels out the sharpness of the square jaw.
face width and length measure about the same with the cheeks being the widest point
Bang suggestion: Blunt, heavier and square. Adding a defined sharp line to your face will counteract the roundness to your face, giving you more of an oval face shape feel.
face is elongated from the forehead to a tapering chin
Bang suggestion: Start bangs farther back and taper diagonally. The angle will bring width to the face, shortening the feel of your face shape.
Styling your bangs!
Product: (beware, start out with the smallest amount, dime size, and go from there. Adding too much product can make your bangs greasy and lifeless!)
Fine hair: add volumizing spray when wet and medium hold hair spray when dry. For a textured look, add Davines sea salt spray at the end.
Curly hair: a light curl cream and then let hair air dry or diffuse. Davines Curl Cream is a light but effective tamer of curl.
Coarse hair: try a stronger hold product like Davines Strong Hold Cream Gel, and oil-based primer, like Davines Oi Oil
Flat wrapping – Flat-wrapping works out any cowlicks at your hairline to help your bangs lay flat. Flat wrapping works for almost any bang shape.
- Add your styling products to your wet bangs.
- Begin drying your bangs from side to side with a flat brush, focusing on the roots.
- As the bangs are almost dry, comb them in the direction you want them to be styled and finish drying the ends from there.
