HairTalk-- Hair Bangs

Three major good things about hair bangs:
1. To minimize large forehead
2. To help control annoying cowlicks or disguise forhead lines
3. To work in harmony with wide range of hair accessories from headbands to clips.

Face shapes and Bangs

Oval face shapes - the oval face shape is considered to be a face shape that can wear any type of hair-style . This includes bangs which can be worn in just about any style.
Round face shapes - the most flattering bang styles is long softly layered or feathered bangs that gently hug the cheeks areas to minimize round cheeks. Great bands can instantly chisel into the cheekbones and help them pop.
Long face shapes - blunt brow hugging bangs that softly drape over the forehead will help to give the impression of a more oval-shaped face.
Square face shapes - consider side-swept bangs that gently curve or taper inwards towards the jaw to soften pronounced square facial lines. When well cut, side swept bangs can also help soften all the angles of the face.
Heart face shapes - depending on the ultimate goal, bangs can be selected to either minimize the general wideness of the heart shaped face or help to balance the generally prominent chin. A side swept feathered or texturized bang style might be the best selection.
Triangular face shapes - wider bangs that are feathered, wispy or texturized can help to balance the face and create more of an oval shape.A slight wispy fringe will cover and conceal a wide forehead. It will also bring it into a better proportion with a wide chin. Avoid the flat, pageboy fringes. These can level out fullness and height.

I like bangs. I've had them for so long, I think I look funny with my hair off my forehead. Good for covering up stray zits too!
