The Best Bangs For Round Faces



Now with celebrities like Kate Moss and Carmen Electra making bangs look sexier than ever, I thought some information about which bang styles complement your face shape might be helpful. The first part of the series is about round faces. If you have a round face, you'll first want to start off with a haircut that flatters your face shape and then move onto the "fringe benefits" later.

What you're aiming for is long, side-swept bangs or wispy fringes. Both help take attention away from the sides of your face, creating an arch which will help elongate your face. Stay away from super-choppy bangs or short layers that add volume to the sides.

I don't do bangs anymore because they become a pain in the butt when I'm in uniform - our headgear flattens hair out no matter if you get it bigger than your head or not...totally depressing, I hate standing in formation longer than 5 minutes because I know I will have a line on my forehead and the top of my head will be slightly flattened compared to the rest! Guess that's my fault for having short hair that needs to be styled everyday - it is definitely easier having long hair in the Army, because you can just sleek it back into a sexy bun.
