Choosing the right style for you bangs is the most important step in getting any of the popular medium haircuts with bangs. Find out how to define your bangs the right way, based on the shape of your face and the type of hair to get the most out of haircuts with bangs and layers.
Before you ask your stylist to give you one of the most flattering hairstyles with bangs and layers, consider the type of bangs that enhance your features the right way.
Medium Haircuts with Bangs for Your Face Shape
Oval faces are suited for most types of bangs, but the best hairstyles with bangs and layers feature either side-swept bangs or softer wispy bangs. Shoulder length bobs can be a great look with bangs and layers that start around ear length.
Get long bangs, either heavy or blunt, for an oblong face shape, that will balance out nicely a high forehead. Blunt bangs are well suited to both well defined shapes, like the pageboy bob, and to a messier style, especially with wavy hair, that has lots of texture.
Square face shapes look best with arched bangs that create curves to balance out a strong jawline and feathered bangs work equally well. Try curved look with piecey bangs and add choppy layers around the face to get a more effortlessly sophisticated look.
Round faces look stylish with side-swept fringes or delicate wispy bangs that don’t overpower the forehead giving a wider appearance.
Haircuts with Bangs for Your Hair Type
Medium hairstyles with bangs and layers can make or break your look based on your hair type. Well-defined, geometric haircuts with blunt cut bangs, aren’t a good option for coarse hair, whether it’s thin or very thick.
Straight hair is best suited for medium haircuts with bangs and you can try different ideas including mini bangs, curved or asymmetrical bangs that suit your hair type and face beautifully. The best look for you might be a minimally layered straight cut with side-swept bangs, especially if you want to visually shorten your forehead.
If you have curly hair, wispy bangs with a soft cut will be the most flattering, but you shouldn’t try a feathered fringe that usually works better with straight hair of medium density.
Medium haircuts with bangs are greatly enhanced by some layers, especially bobs that gently frame the jawline. Consider these important tips when opting for medium hairstyles with bangs and layers to avoid the wrong, less flattering cuts.
