How to choose the perfect bangs for the shape of your face

If you have decided to change the appearance of your hair by trimming your bangs, you have to know which bangs would complement the shape of your face. Bangs can greatly affect your appearance and are very striking.

A round face – Soft rounded, but full bangs or long bangs to the side

A round face shape is usually characterized by prominent cheeks that will look great with longer and softer bangs to the side. They will elongate the face and make it visually thinner.

Dense rounded bangs that line the frontal bone will highlight the softness of the round facial shape, but the long bangs on the side would elongate the face and make it narrower. If you do not like fuller cheeks and a round face shape always choose the second alternative.

Bear in mind that the wrong bangs can make the face even rounder. Let the length of the bangs be approximately above the eyebrows, thick and rounded. Thin bangs will not have the same effect, and the longer bangs will only emphasize your cheeks and make the face look fuller.
