Let’s be honest. Everyone who has ever watched New Girl is secretly in love with Zooey Deschanel’s hairstyle. But it’s not just the flowing, wavy locks we love…it’s those bangs. They’re not too thick, not too thin, and just tousled enough to sweep Nick off his feet.
As effortless as they look, the truth is, all bangs require a little bit off effort, even for Zooey! So we’ve scoured through the best how-to tips on the internet for bangs, just so you’ll know which route to take regarding your face shape and hair type.
So here we go!
1. OVAL FACE SHAPE
Good news for our oval faces out there! If you’ve got an oval face, you can pull off just about any bang-type! So feel the freedom to play around with different bang ideas, and choose whichever you prefer! Just make sure it compliments the rest of your haircut.

2. SQUARE FACE SHAPE
Square face shapes should avoid center parted bangs and super-blunt bangs. Square shapes are flattered by long sides and a bit of uneven trim on the fringe.

3. HEART-SHAPED FACE
Heart-shaped faces are best flattered by either long layers that frame the face or straight-across-the-eyebrows bangs.

4. ROUND FACE SHAPE
A long wispy side swept bang is the best to break the roundness of a face shape. Also, never go with super-short bangs, as they will emphasize the roundness of your face shape.

5. LONG FACE SHAPE
Bangs help break up a long face shape, but be mindful of the length. The most flattering proportions divide the face into thirds. A fringe that falls a third of the way down your face will balance your features. You can go heavy or light with them, but the length of them is the key to a proportional face.
