Bang it up!

Bangs never go out of style, but do you know what suits your face best? Celebrity stylist Antonio Prieto, who counts Eva Longoria, Caroline Murphy, and Marisa Tomei among his clients breaks it down for us by face shape.

DIAMOND (Scarlett Johansson)
This shape is basically an angular oval. A short side-swept bang works best with this face shape as it softens the angular areas.

OBLONG (Angelina Jolie)
The goal here is to create width through the side of the face since this face shape is long and narrow – a longer side-swept bang is perfect. But be careful, the length of the bang is the most important factor. Make sure the bangs fall on or near the cheekbone.

TRIANGLE (Kate Hudson)
Bangs are a great idea for this face shape because of its narrow forehead and fuller jaw line. Bangs would create width through the forehead.

ROUND (Katie Holmes)
Unfortunately for those with a round face, bangs will not work for this shape. Bangs will only draw more attention to the fullness of this face. The eye will see less face which translates to a shorter, fuller and wider looking face.

HEART (Jennifer Aniston)
The chin is narrow and the forehead is already wide in this shape. But as long as the section of hair being cut into bangs is kept narrow and does not extend past the outside of the eye, bangs can beautifully complement someone with a heart-shaped face.
