Whether you are contemplating a more soft and subtle look with curtain bangs, or are ready to go bold with a blunt cut, L’OFFICIEL has taken up the task of assisting you in making your best fringe decision.
Bangs have evolved much in the same way fashion has, but a love for them within the hair world has never dwindled. Often regarded as highly as a pair of jeans that fit just right, bangs are a statement in understanding one’s personal style.
From ‘70s inspired sweeping bangs like those which framed the face of Farrah Fawcett, to feathery fringe styled like the true French-woman Brigitte Bardot, the best bangs for you are the ones that infuse you with the most confidence.
To help guide you in understanding which style of bangs are best for your face shape, and to gather some major inspiration, see how Instagram’s most stylish personalities have chosen their chop.
Straight across and angular around the eye, blunt cut bangs are perfect for those with long face shapes and narrow features. Bringing balance and symmetry to the face, a blunt cut is perfect for drawing attention to your most captivating feature; your eyes.
Most suitable for those with round and oval faces, baby bangs, otherwise known as micro bangs, are great for those looking to bring an edge to their look. Because baby bangs are cut close to the hairline, the face is opened up and given the chance to shine.
Perfect for those with square and more angular faces, wispy bangs bring softness to the angles you were born with. Because of the way they fall above and around the eye, wispy bangs are effortlessly feminine and whimsical.
