Fashions come and go, especially when it comes to hair, but we’re confident in saying that bangs are in. We’ve seen the rise of the side fringe, the blunt fringe, the heavy fringe, the mini fringe, the semi-parted fringe and even the layered or feathered fringe. Choosing what kind of hairstyle you want often depends greatly on the shape of your face and how much daily maintenance you’re willing to do.
First, figure out what face shape you have, including whether your jawline is round, square, or pointed, and how much forehead you’re working with.
The best kind of fringe for square faces is one that contrasts the jawline. Try a feathered fringe for soft layers that don’t go straight across, but fall in a small part somewhere just off centre. You can also play with an arched fringe, which just requires a quick hair straightener routine in the morning to keep them up.
Oval faces are lucky, because you can get pretty much any kind of bangs and fringe. Try heavy bangs or blunt bangs for a pronounced look, or go with side swept ones for something easy. Avoid bangs that are too long and choppy.
Those with heart shaped faces tend to have wider foreheads, so a side swept fringe that lands above the eyebrow is a good way to soften angles and draw attention upwards. For those with square jaws especially, try to keep your bangs from being too blunt. Your face can take heavy bangs too, which is a plus!
Try to show off a little forehead with a light, wispy fringe or mini bangs. Have some short layers going down the side of your face to frame it and create length. Mini bangs have become quite popular in Melbourne; they show off more of your face and get in your eyes less than longer bangs.
If you have a pear shaped face, go long. Long bangs, whether they are straight, rounded, or have a side part, will balance out your jawline. Just remember to have them cut above the jawline, and not go straight down the middle.
One of the biggest deterrents of getting fringe is that it never looks the same the next day. Many people would rather not take the trouble to maintain their hair. The truth is though; it’s really not as difficult as you might think! Even doing simple things like using a round brush instead of a straight one will get your bangs in line. You can adjust them on your face and let them grow for a couple of weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows, before needing to get them done again. Bangs are a bold statement that instantly catches attention. Your Hair Hub stylist will be able to create the perfect bangs for your face shape.
