Generally the rule is if you have a longer face, go for a longer fringe length; if you have a rounder face, you should generally be going a little shorter.

“I personally am not too big a fan of fuller bangs as they don’t work well for those who prefer the fuss-free no make-up or minimal look. It can sometimes be too harsh or, if not executed well, may actually cover too much forehead and narrow down the face – or make for a rounder overall face shape.

“Length would definitely be the most important key here. If you go too short you may end up with washing out your features and making your face look blocky and long. But too long and the features may be compressed too much, or make your face look rounder than you want.

You need to take into account both the length and texture to get the perfect look for your face shape.

“These are the most versatile bangs and suit almost all face shapes – you can add a bit more length past the brows, on the eyeline for fuller-cheeked women, or cut to just by the browline for someone with a pointed chin.

You can change how much texture is added to show more or less of the forehead. They can help soften harsher features and can help create length for squared or rectangular face shapes, and complement those with pronounced jawlines with the touch of softness.”
