Use your round face shape to choose the right bangs for you!

Bangs are perfect for adding versatility to your look and for giving your hair a makeover without sacrificing your length, but they can also make such an impact that they totally change the way you look. This is because the look, style and length of bangs have the ability to shape your face - for better or for worse.

The Right Bangs for Your Round Face Shape

To make the most of a round face shape, your bangs should add some much needed length and also narrow down the sides of your face to create a much more flattering face shape.

Face Framing Bangs

Wispy, Side-Swept Bangs

The Wrong Bangs for Your Round Face Shape

Round face shapes can look wide and short so bangs that are going to really accentuate those types of features, such as full, blunt cut bangs which will halve the length of your face, should be avoided.

Short Bangs

Straight Across Bangs

By choosing the types of bangs that will give your round face shape a much more flattering look you can then give focus to the other features of your face, such as your eyes, really nicely shaped lips or your nose, so be sure to keep these types of bangs in mind when looking for the right bangs for you.
