Just click on your type, read my tips, then head off to the salon with a picture to get more bang for your buck! (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

I agree with a lot of you guys - I can't figure out what shape my face is. I know I'm not square, but it seems like I have features of all the other shapes. I just pick the bangs I like, which are like Jessica Alba's - who, by the way, looks amazing in that picture other than the fact that those bangs are little too long (at least for my tastes)...

I remember being really excited when I saw these posts last year, but I still can't figure out what the shape of my face is. :o Ah well, curly hair makes most bangs tricky anyway.

I just got those blunt cut-thick ones recently and have not loved my hair this much in four or five years. It's funny because my friends say they can't imagine me not having them before, as they suit my face well.

I have finally figured out my face shape. I'm a heart. I'm not a dramatic heart, but because of my cheeks I'm definitely more heart than circle.

I don't like Jessica Alba's bangs AT ALL.

I had bangs all through high school and college and really have zero desire to ever have them again. I don't mind side-swept bangs or wispy ones, but I really HATE those blunt-cut thick bangs on anyone.

Every kind of bangs I've ever tried just make my face look more round, definitely not what I was going for.
