Face Shape :

Basic face shapes are oval shape, square shape, heart shape and round shape.

Round Face :

Side-swept bangs or straight blunt bangs look great even in ponytail, buns, braids as well water- fall hairstyles. So easy to manage and you can style them anyway.

Long Square Face :

Long eye- gazing bangs, see through/ wispy bangs or long heavy bangs, adds softness to square face.

Oval face :

This is the more versatile face shape. Though they look good with all bangs but heavy blunt cut is strongly recommended. It flatters oval face and thick textures. Just blow dry them with a round brush.

Heart Face :

Go for long layered side bangs. Longest piece should reach at the top of the cheekbones to create a balance look.
