A Complete Guide To Bangs

A Complete Guide To Bangs

Just came across a photo of me 2 years ago where I had my bangs. I cut it on my own. Thank God it doesn’t look bad. But  I like cutting my own hair coz I can decide the thickness and the length of it. I went for a full bangs because I think it flatters my face shape. It’s very essential to know exactly your face shape before doing anything to your hair. I have actually researched about it before doing it all by myself. For those of you who are clueless about what kind of bangs you wanted to get or what’s your face shape, then you have come to the right post.

Identify first your face shape. As shown on the photo below

A Complete Guide To Bangs - Face shape

Blunt Bangs

a.k.a. Full-bangs,  which are cut straight across your forehead. Most blunt bangs will stop at or around eyebrow length, although some people like to keep them a little bit longer than this for a more severe look. This are great for drawing attention to your eyes and framing your face. If you have thinner hair you may have wispier blunt kind, which look a little softer. If you have thicker hair and do not want to look to seem too severe, then you may be able to get your stylist to thin your hair out a little bit. I prefer cutting the edges of my bangs on a vertical angle so the edges wouldn’t look too straight. This type of bangs best goes on face shapes  such as oval, long, and diamond. I’m not saying it goes bad with the rest of the face shape but just explaining where it flatters most.

Side Swept bangs


Side-swept bangs come from one side of your head and cross your forehead on a diagonal. They help to give your style an asymmetrical look which is very fashionable. People who have a perfectly symmetrical face shape may want to consider wearing their bangs in this style because it will give them an unusual edge. This style of side-swept bang is a very popular choice in the emo sub-culture. Some people style their hair so that it thickly covers their forehead, but also covers one of their eyes. Others wear their hair with a more subtle side-sweep. Side-swept are probably the most common type of bangs.

Parted Bangs

This style is great with medium to long hair. Honestly, I think this is the most practical of all the type of bangs especially if you don’t want your hair blocking your sight. I have said its practical but I think its not the most stylish. I would suggest to have a curling roll on each side of the parted hair for you to style it. Just to give it a little volume. However, if you’ve got short hair you might want to consider another style.

Wispy Bangs

This type of bangs is slightly thinner than the full or blunt bags and is usually layered in between the eye brows and lashes. It is also longer on the sides. I find this practical because you can wear them swept aside or straight with a middle part. I honestly think this goes with all face shapes.


Pixie Bangs

Pixie bangs goes best with short hair and usually layered and side swept. A pixie cut with bangs can be an adorable change to otherwise mundane locks of a medium length. With short hair at the nape and longer strands lingering atop, this style can work with any hair texture and shade. Try a blonde hue with a glimpse of darker roots if you really want to make the best out of this funky look.

I hope you got some hair inspo in today’s blog. if you’re planning to get bangs, don’t forget to style it with products like hair serum which is very basic. You can give it extra volume by  curling it too.
