The Blunt Bang

Posh yet oh-so-bold, the blunt bang is one that makes a statement

Face Type:

For someone with an oval or square face, blunt bangs can be very flattering. To make the style less severe, angle off the sides of the bangs to be a bit longer than the rest of the fringe — this will help to better incorporate your bangs into your hairstyle.

Hair Type/Cut:

If done correctly, blunt bangs can compliment both long and short haircuts. Typically, blunt bangs work best on women with thicker hair, so that there is enough hair to work with to really define and shape the bang.

Ask Your Stylist For:

Heavy fringe that dusts just below the eyebrows.

The Side-Swept Bang

Face Shape:

A round face can benefit from a side-swept bang because it creates a flattering, angular look that will help to make your face appear longer.

Hair Type/Cut:

Whether you have thin or thick hair, side swept bangs can easily be styled and blow-dried off to the side of the face. Make sure your bang is cut thick, so that it doesn’t appear too soft or too wispy, which, for a round face, can be unflattering.

Side-swept bangs work well with both long and short haircuts, especially cuts with layers and angles that provide the hair with more shape and definition.

Ask Your Stylist For:

Soft, feathered bangs that sweep your cheekbone. Ask for a side part verses a center part to create more definition.

The Wispy Bang

Playful and youthful, wispy bangs can be a great choice for someone who doesn’t want to commit to a full bang

Face Shape:

Heart-shaped faces can benefit from wispy fringe because of the way the hair is layered and feathered. This texture softens the shape of the face, and wispy bangs are easy to style in multiple ways – off to the side, towards the face or back.

Hair Type/Cut:

Thinner hair is ideal for light, wispy bangs because it can easily be cut and shaped to compliment the rest of your hairstyle.

A mid-length cut with layers and angles is my favorite style to compliment a wispy bang. The combination of the light bang with a layered cut makes for great movement in the hair.

Ask Your Stylist For:

A soft bang that can easily be styled off to the side or pinned back. Incorporating an angular shape to the bang will make it more flattering when worn to the side. The shortest part of the bang should hit around your eyebrow, while the longest should hit around your ear.

Which bang style/cut would fit your face shape?
