Do You Want Bangs?


One of the easiest ways to change up your mane style without changing it too much? Bangs! Think Jessica Biel and Taylor Swift, who left the length everywhere but in front and created a whole new style vibe. Of course, figuring out the fringe that’s right for you can sometimes be tricky. Enter master hairstylist Gocha Hawkins, owner of Gocha Salon in Atlanta, GA, who offers this advice on finding the best bang for your buck…and your face!

Round
“Sideswept bangs are the perfect style for a strong, round shape. Keep the bang longer and layered so the appearance is soft, counteracting the wider area of the face. The always trendy blunt bang is also a great look for a woman with a round face; they should have a curved shape, and be thick and impactful.”

 

Square
“What looks best on square faces is a longer, thicker bang that grazes the eye. The bang should be shortest in the middle and longest on the sides, fading into the face framing strands of your hair. The last thing you want is for your bangs to take away from your eyes or overwhelm your delicate features.”

 

Heart
“For ladies with heart shaped faces, I recommend the sideswept bang. It is unlike the round face style in that it should be shorter and draw attention to the eye. Try layered, short sideswept bangs; the shorter section shouldn’t go lower than the arch of your eyebrow, and the longest portion should be at the side of the face, at the outer corner of your eye.”

 

Oval
“With oval-shaped faces, it all depends on the hair’s texture. If hair is thicker, a fringe look that grazes the eyebrows is best. However, if your hair is thinner, you can easily alter the style to face framing bangs that are long enough to be brushed to the side.”
