Hair Alert: Best Bangs For Your Face Shape

Snip. Snip.

Bangs are one of those features that can dramatically transform a person's appearance in a matter of minutes. The growing-out phase may discourage some people from committing to bangs, but we believe that with the right styling, a fringe is flattering on every face shape.

With the right style, you can add more definition to your oblong, oval-shaped face or soften up the high points of your heart-shaped face. Need help determining which bangs work best for your face shape? Scroll down for celebrity inspiration as well as tips from Mario Russo, the owner and lead stylist of Boston's Salon Mario Russo.
