Because every woman has the right to fantastic fringe.. this article explains how to match your fringe with your face shape to have optimal results.

If You Have a Round Face:

Round-faced girls typically shy away from bangs because they have a reputation for making a full face look fuller. It’s recommended to stick with longer, more tapered side-swept bangs to give the illusion of length. Equally important is what styles won’t work; when it comes to round faces.. Stay away from wispy styles!


If You Have a Square Face:

With a square-shaped face, the goal of the fringe is to counteract the hard angles and soften features. Try bangs that narrow the forehead (side-swept styles are especially good for this). Another option is a full fringe that hits just below your brows at the center and gradually gets longer on the sides, maintaining a wispy feel. This will soften strong jaw angles. Finally, remember this rule above all else: Keep fringe light enough to allow some of your forehead to peek through. This will give bangs movement and help maintain softness.


If You Have a Heart-Shaped Face:

When your forehead is wider than your jaw line, the goal of your bangs should be balancing out the bottom half of the face. Again, a long, side-swept bang is great. This cut has a balancing effect since it draws attention away from the chin and toward the eyes. It’s recommended to ask your stylist to add some long face-framing layers to create movement.


If You Have a Triangular Face:

Women who have a wider, squarer jaw line and a narrow forehead should go for a bangs that get longer as they reach the outside of the face. They should keep it “slightly wispy and texturized to help conceal a narrow forehead.” The triangular-faced girl’s worst enemy: heavy, blunt bangs as they will further accentuate the jaw.


If You Have an Oval Face:

These lucky ladies have many options. All the face shapes, oval offers the most versatility when it comes to fringe because of the proportions of the shape. From blunt bangs to side-swept and everything in between and they can get away with bang experimentation.


The Style That Works on Every Woman

Heart-shaped bangs look great no matter what your face shape. This ultra-flattering fringe starts slightly longer on the sides and subtly curves with the brow line [but falls just below it], descending down to meet just above the bridge of the nose. Imagine a heart drawn with an extremely shallow point, with pieces longer in the middle and shorter just above the brow.
