Let’s be honest… at some point in your life, you have battled the age-old question: bangs or no bangs? The struggle is real, and the outcome of creating bangs for yourself can feel so permanent. Along with the nerves that come along with cutting bangs, you also need to consider which types of bangs will look best for your face type. According to Lauren Conrad, “While bangs don’t look good on everyone, confidence does.” But with a few directions, and some quality products from FHI Heat, you can have bangs that look great on you and the confidence to go along with them!
Those with an oval face have already won the lottery, as this is the shape that most people strive to mimic when they are creating bangs in the first place. For this reason, any kind of bangs will look great with this face type. Many stylists swear by blunt bangs for an oval face, or a medium-length bang to play up your eyes.
In order to best style your blunt bangs, use your dryer angled down from the top to get rid of most of the moisture. Afterward, you can use a flat iron to create a symmetrical look with your hair. The Shine Express Hair Mist will show off your bangs with style.
If you have a round face, side bangs are definitely the winner. Sweeping your long and wispy bangs to the side helps to elongate your round face, making it more oval. Adding angles will accentuate your best features and give you more dimension.
Creating a great side bang look is easier than it might seem. Use this blow dryer to thoroughly dry your hair, and make sure to angle it down from the top. Using a round brush and drying from the roots first is the best technique to avoid cowlicks and imperfections when you style your bangs. When you have styled your side bangs to your liking, use a volumizing mousse to help to hold them in place.
Crescent bangs, which are part of the currently popular long feathery look, are perfect for those with heart-shaped faces. By crescent, stylists mean that they are longer on the edges and shorter in the middle. This is a very easy look to capture at home, and the cut itself already leads to extra volume.
We recommend this handle-less dryer, and you should always point it down from the top. You can finger dry your bangs to add texture as you go or use this brush if you want more control. Once your bangs are dry, use a titanium flat iron to help your bangs lay exactly how you want them to. Finishing with our hair spray will keep your bangs beautiful all day.
If you have a square face, you could benefit from a longer bang. A fringe look would be perfect here, as it would add a softness to the angles of your face. This look is very easy to create and will be very flattering with your jawline.
After using a blow dryer, which you angle down from the top, take a minute with your brush to curl your bangs under, and then use this titanium pro styler to flat iron the ends of your hair. A nice finisher will keep your fringe looking perfect without getting frizzy.
If you have a longer face, go for long grown-out bangs which are cut in a thick fringe. If you are in the mood to play, you can spread out your bangs and go for the side-swept, angled side bangs look, with a section of bangs on each side of your face.
And just like the above bang looks, this one will be easy to acquire by blow drying, pointing the blow dryer down to get rid of moisture, and using a paddle brush. The paddle brush will help to control the thick fringe. After using a flat iron to help each section find its place, this light hold hair spraywill keep your whole look intact as you move throughout your day.
No matter what type of face shape you have, there is a bang type for you, and with a few FHI Heat products, you will be able to create these great looks in the comfort of your own home. And the good news from all of this is that confidence and bangs can look good on everyone!
