Tips for Organizing Your Bangs According to Different Face Shapes
Not all face shapes are created equal, so it follows that not all bang styles will flatter all face shapes equally. If you’re not sure what face shape you have, don’t worry!
We’ve got you covered. Just stand in front of a mirror and trace the outline of your face with a lipstick or lip liner.
Once you’ve done that, take a step back and assess the overall shape of your face. Here’s what to look for:
If you have a round face…
If the width of your face is approximately the same as the length of your face, then you have a round face. To play up the natural angles of your face, try sweeping your bangs to the side or wearing them in a deep side part.
You can also try longer, wispy bangs that graze just above your eyebrows—this will help create the illusion of a more oval-shaped face.
Avoid blunt-cut bangs as they will only accentuate the roundness of your face.
If you have a square face…
If the width of your forehead is approximately the same as the width of your jawline, then you have a square face.
The key with square faces is to avoid sharp angles, so steer clear of any bang style that will make your forehead look even wider.
Instead, try long, side-swept bangs or choppy layers that hit right at your eyebrow line—this will help soften the appearance of your angular jaw.
If you have a long face…
If the length of your face is greater than the width of your forehead, then you have a long face. If this is the case, then you’ll want to choose bang styles that help shorten the appearance of your face.
Try shorter, choppier layers or blunt-cut bangs that hit right at or above your eyebrows—this will help create visual interest and draw attention toward your eyes instead of the length of your nose.
And if side-swept bangs are more your speed, be sure to keep them shorter so they don’t overwhelm your features.
If you have an oval face…
An oval face shape is considered ideal because it’s well-balanced—meaning any bang style will look good on you!
However, if you’re looking for something specific, then we recommend choosing bang styles that highlight and frame your best features.
If you love your eyes, go for a short fringe that hits right at or slightly below eyebrow level.
Your cheekbones? Then sweep your bangs to the side or wear them ina the deep side part really play them up.
Tips for Keeping the Shape of Your Bangs Under Beanie
Once you’ve chosen the right beanie and bang style for your face shape, it’s important to make sure that your beanie won’t mess up the shape of your bangs.
Here are some tips on how to keep the shape of your bangs intact while wearing a beanie:
Start with dry hair
Hat hair is real, and it’s not always flattering (trust us, we know from experience).
To avoid flat, greasy-looking bangs after taking off your beanie, make sure to start with completely dry hair before putting on your hat.
This way, when you remove your hat, your hair will still hold its shape and volume.
Use product sparingly
It can be tempting to go overboard with the product when trying to achieve the perfect hat-hair look but resist the urge!
Using too much product will make your hair look oily and weighed down—definitely not what you’re going for.
Instead, use a light mist of hairspray or other styling products to keep your flyaways in place.
Try pulling the beanie back on your head
If your beanie looks awkward when pulled down on your head, try pulling it back on your head so that it sits more snugly on top.
This can help give you the appearance of fuller, more voluminous hair. Plus, it’ll also keep your sensitive eyebrows in place when wearing a beanie with bangs!
