You are here:



I have a long square face with a narrow forehead. I have high cheekbones. And I am aging. 40 years old in three months. What bangs should I ask for?

 If your face is long, then any bang will help make it look shorter. A textured bang will add softness rather than a solid look the a straight bag would give. If your face is more square, then a full bang would not be advisable, as it would shorten your face and make it look more square and wide. In this case a 3/4 bang would be more in order, as it leaves a part of the forehead exposed, elongating the face and keeping it from looking too short. Also, for a longer face with a square jaw, textured bang or an arched bang rather than straight would again add softness.
Best of luck to you.
