Chicas with round-shaped faces, like Nicole Richie, should avoid harsh, straight-across or curled-under bangs, which would only emphasize the roundness of the face. Long side-swept bangs are always a good bet. But if you want something more dramatic, follow Nicole’s style, making sure that your ends are slightly tapered and uneven like hers.
Bangs look great on a long, vertical face because they make it seem wider. Try styling them like Jessica Alba’s: Split bangs down the middle and sweep them to the sides. This frames your face and draws the focus to your eyes.
If you have a heart-shaped face, like Michelle Rodriguez, style your bangs so that they look piece-y (instead of one thick block). This makes your forehead seem smaller, and helps to draw the focus away from a pointy chin.
Lea Michele’s long, blunt bangs flatter her square-shaped face perfectly. Because they’re thick and curve slightly under, her bangs soften the defined angles of her jaw and cheekbones.
Side-swept bangs are universally flattering. They make a large forehead seem smaller and the whole face less round. If you have an oval-shaped face, like Eva Mendes, cut your bangs so that they graze past the corner of your eye and stop right above your cheekbone—just like hers do.
