  • Round Face: Opt for side-swept bangs that elongate the face.

  • Long Face: Blunt or full bangs can balance out a longer face shape.

  • Heart-Shaped Face: Wispy or side-swept bangs work well to soften a pointed chin.

  • Thin Hair: Blunt or micro-fringes can add volume, while wispy bangs might not provide enough coverage.
