This entry was posted in Style By Meru

It is a recognized fact that if your hair doesn't fit, your face won't look good. In addition, many people now have "baldness anxiety", bangs have become a key beauty tool for everyone to consider. The reasons why people want to create bangs are: bangs can adjust the hairline, make you look like you have more hair, and can also modify the face shape.


The right bangs are the equivalent of changing your head, but the opposite is ugly, even for idols! So, is it suitable for you to have bangs? And what kind of bangs are suitable? Next, we will share the practical tips on how to choose bangs with your face shape. Two steps are in place to improve your face value in a flash!

Step 1: Do The Exclusion Method According To The Face Style

Many people cannot accurately determine which type of bangs they are suitable for. The fundamental problem is that they have a vague understanding of their own face style. Face style basically includes the three basic elements of face shape, the ratio of every part of your faces. When choosing bangs, the primary consideration is face shape, while the other two factors should be taken into account.

1. If Your Face Shape Is Short And Square

For example, flesh round face, short square face, diamond face, etc., generally speaking, it is not suitable for thick Straight bangs, bangs on eyebrows and other bangs that cover large area of forehead. This is because such bangs will cover the forehead and cause the visual center to move down to the lower half of the face. This will not only fail to modify the face shape, but will make your face appear shorter and more square, with a sense of dun.

How to Determine Your Face Shape (The Right Way)

2. If Your Features Are More Focused

If you have more concentrated features and more white space on your face, which causes your face to look bigger; such type is also not suitable for exaggerated bangs. In other words, it is better to leave a little hair on the sides to modify the face shape than to cover a large area of the face. Here you can refer to Song Joey, the dragon beard bangs are a good choice.

3. If Your Forehead Is Short, Or The Middle Part Of Your Face Is Long

If your forehead is short or the middle part of your face is long, this situation is also not suitable for bangs that cover the forehead in a large area. Generally speaking, heart-shaped faces and long faces are more prone to this problem. For short foreheads, large bangs will severely compress the proportions of the face and require a lot of refinement on the lower half of the face. People with longer atria look more mature, large bangs will make people look older. Light air bangs can reveal some forehead, which is better than thick bangs.

3. If Your Features Give a Bigger Look

If you have darker colored features, thicker hair, or if you are good at this type of makeup, it is better to not keep bangs. Because such type visually leaves less white on the face and stronger visual impact, if you have bangs, it will look more crowded on the face and the overall temperament will be depressing.

4. If Your Forehead Is Wider, Higher

In this case, or if your hairline is more backward, it is very suitable for large bangs, flush bangs, air bangs, and bangs on eyebrows can be arranged up. If your forehead is wide, but shorter, you can choose bangs with two-eight diagonal points.

Step 2: Different Bangs Types Suitable For People

Different hairstyles are popular every year, and the style of bangs keeps pushing forward. From straight bangs to air bangs, from French bangs to bangs on the eyebrows, various net bangs are suitable for you or not? To help you avoid the mines, here are 8 popular bangs to analyze them.

1. Straight Bang

The most popular bangs are the straight bangs.

The probability of stepping on the mines of bangs is still very high, and if you are not careful, you will look old. The reason why bangs were popular in the beginning was because of its sense of age reduction. It is a great way to create a student girl's temperament and to blur the hairline and make it look like there is more hair. The round face is stronger because of the tonsure, if you have to choose flush bangs, you can slightly part in the middle, the exposed forehead can elongate the face proportion.

2. Thin Strand-Fringe Hair

This is a great way to get the most out of your hair, especially for those who have a square face, long face, diamond-shaped face and narrow forehead.


The beauty of thin strand-fringe hair is that it is small and precise. With a small amount of hair, the width of the forehead is subtly modified, making the face more coordinated. For square faces with hard face lines and long faces, creating slightly curly thin strand-fringe hair can soften the facial lines and add femininity. For round faces, thin strand-fringe hair not only weakens the size of the face, but also adds a girlish look with its slightly curled shape.

3. Mid-Parted Full Fringe Hair

Suitable for people with wide forehead, high forehead, long face, square face and diamond face with square jaw line.

Airy bangs are thinner and have a breathing sensation. It can blur the hairline, weaken the area of forehead and improve the proportion of the face, suitable for people with high forehead and high hairline.

In addition, for people with convex mouth, it can echo with the mouth and weaken the visual impact of the mouth.

7. French Fringe

French Fringe is similar to air bangs, the difference is that the former is thicker, more layered, with broken hair on both sides, and at the same time, more voluminous, fresh and natural, yet casual and lazy. It can improve the hairline and also modify the face shape, especially friendly for diamond-shaped faces. It not only covers the sunken temples, the chopped hair on both sides trims the high cheekbones and softens the jawline, perfectly fixing all the problems. For those who have a long midriff, French bangs are more refreshing and sporty, which can weaken the mature look brought by a long midriff.

8. Messy Curly Bangs
