Whether it’s your first fringe or a re-try from that awkward year in your teens, a bang makes a statement. What’ll you’ll want to pay attention to is choosing the right bang to compliment your face shape.

For heart-shaped faces go for wispy bangs which can be found in the Long Bob option. You want to focus on length over width and elongate from the forehead down. Thick, side-swept bangs work best For round-shaped faces and this can be accomplished with the Tilted Frisette. This bang type adds angular length to your hair and face, instead of accentuating the fullness of your chin, while also elongating your jawline. The long-faced among us are most complimented by a Blunt bang which is going to add the appearance of width and balance to a longer face. Finally, those of you with oval faces can get your hair makeover with our Curtain bang option. Honestly, the oval face shape can get away with a lot of different styles, so see how well this works for you. Here’s how you get the look!

Whew! Don’t worry, the bangs were the most involved decision. Choosing a hair color should be much simpler. The first thing to decide is how unconventional you’re willing to go with your hair makeover via hair color. Does your day to day require you to be conservative or are you allowed to sport something eye-catching like Bubblegum or Evergreen. Once you make that decision, it’s time to consider your undertone. People with warm undertones will look best in warm Hair Dye colors, whereas cool-toned individuals will be most flattered by icy colors. The best thing about the AirBrush Hair Dye tool is that by toggling the color intensity, you can usually find a shade that will compliment you and make you feel like a brand new person.
