When deciding whether or not you want to try bangs, you may be wondering if your hair length or hair texture will work with bangs. The truth is, bangs can work with just about any hair type or style, you just have to know which ones will work best with your hair and how to style them!

How to Decide What Type of Bangs to Get

  • Before deciding which bangs you want to try, make sure to look at your face shape because this can affect how different types of bangs look on you!
  • After looking at your face shape, it will help you to decide the kind of look you want to go for. For example, maybe you want bangs to cover your forehead or bangs on the side to frame your face. These are the kinds of things you will definitely want to consider before cutting your bangs.
  • Another thing you will want to consider before getting bangs is whether or not you want to cut them yourself or go to a professional.
