Bangs are the new black. These days, hairstyles with bangs can look good on everyone. The trick is tailoring your bangs to the shape of your face and then styling them to match your age and, well, your vibe. Think of bangs as the little black dress of hairstyles–there are many options and you’re sure to find one that suits you.

5 Hairstyles with Bangs by Face Shape
Bangs for Square Face
Your face is square and that means you have beautiful angles. You will want to keep your bangs soft and swept and blended in to the rest of your cut. Think feathery layers. These will provide balance to those angles.
Bangs for Round Face
Your round face has soft lines, and you can provide a nice contrast with a more angled cut. Go for a thick, side-swept bang that hits right above your cheek bone and doesn’t feather in to the rest of your look.
Bangs for Heart Face
Your heart shaped face tends to draw the eye to the chin, which is the point of the heart. Choose long bangs that fall below yoru cheekbones. These will almost be non-bangs, as they’ll be sideswept and ideally fall below your chin.
Bangs for Long Face
Traditional, blunt cut bangs look great on a long face. Keep them straight across and on your forehead. When your bangs fall just below your eyebrows, the end result is super sexy.
Bangs for Oval Face
Your oval face is incredibly versatile. That means you can wear any kind of bang, so pick what suits your style. Edgy? Cut ’em short. Ethereal? Go for long and romantic.
