Round Face

Side Swept Bangs for Round Face Shape

Finding the right hairstyle that includes straight bangs might be tricky for girls with round faces. Below you can find some interesting ideas, but maybe a better idea would be to go for thick, side swept bangs that will make your face look more asymmetrical and angular instead of emphasizing its fullness.

Square Face 

long bangs for square face

One thing to avoid is short bangs. They will visually pull your face downwards. Go for longer bangs and style them in whichever way you prefer.

Heart Face

layered bangs for heart shape face

Don’t go for thick straight hair bangs, as they will accentuate a wider forehead. Choose layered, even side-swept bangs, as those will probably suit you better.
