Bangs are a timeless look that can be seen at the height of beauty trends throughout the decades. But for those who want bangs, actually committing to getting them, especially if you’ve never had them before, can be intimidating. With so many types of bangs, hair textures, lengths, and face shapes, you maybe left wondering “which bangs would look best on me?” Well, to help ease your nerves, we have created a guide that will simplify your hunt for the perfect bangs for your face shape. Here are 10 types of bangs that cover every face shape and style from bold and chic to whimsical and casual.

Blunt Bangs

If you are looking to make a bold statement, blunt bangs or heavy bangs are the style for you. These bangs are iconic for the straight line that falls above or over the eyebrows. Blunt bangs work best with medium hair that is either naturally straight or slightly textured.

Styling for your face shape: 

Blunt bangs work best with an oval face shape because they help to draw attention away from a wide chin or mouth.

Side-Swept Bangs

A popular style that embodies both a quirky and playful feel are side-swept bangs. These bangs are super helpful when trying to frame the face and can also help to hide wrinkles. This cut can be done both long or short, making your bangs easy to manage as they grow out.

Styling for your face shape: 

Side-swept bangs work best with a round face shape because angled bangs can help to add length to the face.

Blended Bangs

Blended bangs are the perfect look when your bangs start to grow out and you are looking for a seamless transition. This effect is created by layering the hair around the face. These bangs are an especially great option if you are looking to combine multiple styles.

Styling for your face shape: 

Blended bangs work best with a square shape face because they help to soften angular features.

Curly Bangs

Unlike the many straight styles of bangs, curly bangs take a much different approach. These beautiful and voluminous bangs add the perfect amount of depth to any face. If you already have curly hair, then you can obtain this look easily with the proper curl care.

Styling for your face shape: 

Curly bangs are best for oval and oblong face shapes that have more width along the sides of the face and forehead.

Curtain Bangs

Curtain bangs are a perfect leeway into the life of bangs. They are a versatile style that can be both hidden or showcased. These bangs hug the outer edges of the face perfectly and highlight any face shape. If you like updos, curtain bangs can add to any look whether they are straight or curly. If you want an abundance of styling options, then these bangs are the ones for you.

Styling for your face shape: Curtain bangs work best with a round or square face because they help to elongate the face.

Feathered Bangs

Feathered or wispy bangs are a great type for thin hair. This style is achieved by using smaller sections of hair so you can see through the bangs. Feathered bangs are a great addition to any casual or dressed up hairstyle.

Styling for your face shape: 

Feathered bangs work best with a heart-shaped face because they work with the face and do not take away or hide features.

Baby Bangs

Like the curtain bangs, baby bangs are also a gateway bang. This style is meant to mimic thin baby hairs at the top of the forehead. Baby bangs are a low-maintenance style that is ideal if you are unsure about taking the full jump into the life of bangs.

Styling for your face shape: Baby bangs work best with a heart-shaped face because they fall on the midline of the forehead, which helps to show off longer features.

Textured Bangs

Textured bangs can be achieved using lots of layers. This style works wonders on thin hair because it helps to create volume. If you are looking to lift your hair from a silky or straight style, these bangs would be the perfect look for you.

Styling for your face shape: Textured bangs work best with oval-shaped faces because they help to shorten the face by concealing the forehead.

Long Bangs

If your signature style is your long hair, then long bangs would be the perfect addition to your everyday style. These bangs flow in seamlessly with long hair, helping to outline the curves of the face. It is also important to cut these bangs at an angle so they can gradually flow into the rest of your hair.

Styling for your face shape: 

Long bangs work best with round-shaped faces, as they help to accentuate the face and bring volume to the main sections of hair.

Wavy Bangs

Similar to the curly and textured bangs, wavy bangs bring volume and depth to any hairstyle. If you have naturally wavy hair, these types of bangs will be easy for you to achieve. Wavy bangs will give you the perfect effortless look without having to straighten and apply heat to your hair.

Styling for your face shape: 

Wavy bangs work best with oval-shaped faces because they help to shorten the face by concealing the forehead.

Box Braid Bangs

Box Braid Bangs are a unique style that can be incorporated into your box braid look. This style can be done in a number of different ways, making sure the braids complement the shape of your face in the best way possible.

Styling for your face shape: Box Braid Bangs are best for oblong face shapes that have more width along the forehead.
