Which Type of Bangs Should You Wear?

This entry was posted in Knowledge By Bailee

You may not realize it yet, but you have a thing for bangs. At the very least, you like how they look on your favorite celebrities. Zooey Deschanel, Reese Witherspoon, and Ariana Grande all have bangs that define and highlight the most beautiful features of their faces, and you can, too. You might be thinking, "I've never had bangs before; they'd look terrible on me." This could be correct..... If you don't know how to choose the right bang style for your face shape. Bangs are similar to regular hairstyles in that not all shapes and sizes suit everyone. To find the best bangs for your face shape, you must first determine what shape your face is.

Do you already know what shape your face is? Let us now discuss bangs.

How do you get bangs?

Wigs, toppers, and hair extensions are three options for getting bangs.

Buy bangs made of human hair

Purchase bangs from the same company that sold you your wig and use the same hair fiber (synthetic, heat resistant synthetic, or human hair). If you use a different brand or fiber for your bangs, they will most likely not look like your hair. Also, when wearing a wig, be extra cautious about securing your bangs. Never place your bangs on the wig cap itself, but rather on the wig cap liner. If you force your bangs into the wig cap, it may tear. While we enjoy wearing bangs with our wigs, we don't love them enough to ruin them.

Cut your wig or topper off to make bangs

Make sure you're completely ready to make the switch to bangs. Wigs, obviously, do not grow out like our own hair, and once you have cut your wig or topper, you cannot change it back. If you're not sure about getting bangs, look for a wig with bangs or a less expensive synthetic wig.
When cutting your bangs, place the wig on a model or a stand rather than your head. Because you won't be turning back and forth in the mirror to ensure you're cutting and shaping it correctly, this will give you the most accurate cut.
Not sure if you can cut your own bangs? Then visit a stylist.
Getting your bangs trimmed is inexpensive (usually less than $10), and the cost is far outweighed by the peace of mind that comes from knowing your bangs are straight.

Buy a wig with bangs

If you're new to wearing wigs, start with a low-cost synthetic wig. Choosing a bangs style that complements your face shape is a good starting point, but it does not guarantee that you will like your bangs. After you've found a bangs style you like, you're better off spending more money on a human hair wig with bangs.

The face shape should be matched with bangs.

Face shape should be matched with bangs.

A good haircut should do two things: highlight your best facial features and make you feel and look beautiful. Here are the bangs styles we recommend for the five most common face shapes: round, oval, square, heart, and long.

Round Faced Bangs

Baby Bangs

Baby Bangs

This year, barely there bangs an inch or two above the brows are making a comeback, and not just for 90's nostalgia. Baby bangs flatter people with round faces by creating the illusion of a larger, longer forehead. Make sure the baby bangs are angled towards your temples in a slight curve, like the top of a circle, or they will appear square on top of a round face.

Oval face Bangs

Softened Blunt Bangs

Softened Blunt Bangs

An oval face is distinguished by large eyes and a small, soft chin, and it is the envy of all other face shapes. If you were born with an oval face shape, you can wear almost any hairstyle or bob and always look great.
Choose a distinct look, such as softened blunt bangs. Softened blunt bangs are ideal for oval faces because they draw attention away from the great facial structure that people with oval faces already have. Request that your hairstylist cut them at or just below your brow line.

Square-Faced Bangs

Long, Layered Bangs

Long, Layered Bangs

Zooey is the queen of long, layered bangs, in addition to being an overall style inspiration. And there's a good reason for it. Her bangs round out her square face and make it more aesthetically pleasing. Long, layered bangs can soften and balance the angles of your face up and down, which is ideal for those with square jaws and foreheads like Zooey's.

Heart-Shaped Face Bangs

Feathery Baby Bangs

Feathery Baby Bangs

A heart-shaped face, like an oval face, is an enviable face shape. Soft but prominent cheekbones and a soft little mouth define a heart-shaped face. If you are blessed with this face shape, you can flaunt it with baby bangs. Baby bangs should be placed directly between the center line of your brow and your hairline. Allow your hairstylist to "feather" them, or cut them into very small layers to soften them.

Bangs for Long Faces

Angled Side Swept Bangs

Angled Side Swept Bangs

Not all side-swept bangs are the same. Side-swept bangs cut in a straight line will do little to change the shape of your face if you have a long face. They will only make your face look crooked. Long-faced women should go for sliced side swept bangs. Layered bangs will soften the oval face shape. Because these sliced, angled bangs are difficult to tuck behind your ears, invest in a good wig hairspray to keep everything in place.

What face shape should not get bangs?

If you have a long face and/or a high forehead, you should do the following: Although this face shape resembles an oval, the width of the forehead, cheeks, and jawline are all the same. Avoid getting baby bangs if you have this face shape because they will elongate your face even more.

How do bangs affect face shape?

Bangs can satisfy your desire for a change while also completely changing the shape of your face and highlighting your best features. Soft, wispy bangs, for example, can soften sharper jawlines, whereas dramatic side bangs can add dimension to rounder faces.

Do bangs thin your face?

It's a common myth that bangs make you look slimmer. You can eat and eat without your forehead widening; your face truly begins with your eye line. Instead, avoid short bangs and cut bangs gently around your face and cheekbones.

    For those with a round face, I’d highly recommend see-through bangs (also known as Korean bangs)!!! You can kind of see your forehead through them since they’re light and so it makes your face look longer. I have them and they’re great!
