You can use bangs (fringe) to help frame your face, accentuate your eyes and draw attention to your best features. There are many different types of bangs out there to suit all face shapes and hairstyles. Bangs are a great way to update your hairstyle with minimal risk. If you have long hair and are thinking of going short but too scared to take the plunge why not try a heavy blunt fringe first that way you can change your look drastically while still keeping the hair length.
This is the most minimal less dramatic style of bangs. You cut a small portion of hair to lightly drape over your forehead. It is easy to grow out if you do not like it. This hairstyle suits most face shapes.
Very Short Bangs:
This type of bang suits those with fine hair and should probably be avoided by those with thick unruly hair as it will be hard to tame. It is great for disguising large foreheads.
Blunt and Heavy:
This is the best style to bring out your eyes as it really draws attention to them. If you have a long face wear it round and soft and if you have a rounder face shape go for a sharper blunter cut.
Side Swept Fringe:
This fringe falls over one side of your face over one eye creating a mysterious effect. Looks great on oval, heart shaped, or square faces and it is great at minimising prominent features. Recommended to those with thick to medium textured hair.
Layered Feathered Bang
Bangs that have been razored or cut into, usually worn quite short. This style looks amazing with shorter hairstyles and on those with fine features.
