Are you considering a fringe? Here’s a guide to choosing the correct one to suit your face shape. Screen Shot 2017-03-27 at 2.12.04 PM   OVAL Oval faces tend to be symmetrical with the jaw being only slightly wider than the temples. Fringe: If you are lucky enough to have an oval face, you can get away with most kinds of bangs, so go ahead and experiment; just make sure you keep them in good condition. LONG A long face means your temples and jaw are the same width, and you’re likely to have a high forehead. Fringe: Longer faces are prone to having higher and more prominent foreheads, which can be quite frustrating as this can seem to drag the face down. You can opt for blunt straight bangs to cover up. ROUND A round face is characterised by having a short forehead and the temple is often the same width as the jaw. Those with round faces tend to look more youthful. Fringe: If you have a round face, try to choose longer feathery side bangs, keep these gently tucked at the side of your face. These will appear to slim your face and reduce the emphasis on your cheeks. SQUARE A square face will have a prominent jaw and very defined bone structure. Fringe: Square faces can look quite severe with certain types of bangs, avoid any kind of blunt cut bangs as these will make your face look harsh. Try to stick with feathery longer side bangs to help soften your features. HEART Face goes narrower towards the chin, forehead is pronounced and thin chin Fringe: Brow-grazing fringes are a great look on classic heart shaped faces. Skimming the eyes with a straight fringe will detract attention away from the point of the chin and hide a larger forehead whilst bringing out your eyes. DAIMOND This type is not very common, and it appears very angular and sometimes quite bony. Fringe: You can wear either a straight down or a side swept bang; however, the key is to have the bangs start a little more inset than the width of the forehead. This will help balance out the forehead, which is wider than the rest of the face, with the chin.
