The right bangs are like the right hairstyle; they will flatter your features and look so great that you'll wonder why you didn't get them sooner. The wrong bangs, on the other hand, could leave you with a look so unflattering that any headband, hair clip or hairstyle that keeps the bangs out of the way while you grow them out quickly becomes your everyday look.
To avoid such extremes and getting bangs you'll regret, do your research first and choose the right bangs by looking at the ultimate deciding factor – your face shape.
The Right Bangs for Your Oval Face Shape
Oval face shapes have the benefit of being balanced, which means that virtually any hairstyle or hair cut will work. Having said that, there are of course some hairstyles or cuts, including bangs, which can upset this balance.
Bangs that are side-swept are the most flattering, but you also have to keep in mind that the bangs should not be too heavy because this can still cover up too much of your face.

The Wrong Bangs for Your Oval Face Shape
Bangs that have been blunt cut and are designed to cover up a large section of your face, such as your forehead, is one such example. This will essentially cut the look of your face in half and turn your lovely oval shape into something that looks much shorter and less flattering.
