Whether you have thin or thick hair, side-swept bangs can easily be styled and blow-dried off to the side of the face, make sure your bang is cut thick, so that it doesn’t appear too soft or too wispy, which for a round face can be unflattering. Side-swept bangs work well with both long and short haircuts, especially cuts with layers and angles that provide the hair with more shape and definition.
Heart-shaped faces can benefit from wispy fringe because of the way the hair is layered and feathered. This texture softens the shape of the face and wispy bangs are easy to style in multiple ways -- off to the side, towards the face or back.
For someone with an oval face, blunt bangs can be very flattering. To make the style less severe, angle off the sides of the bangs to be a bit longer than the rest of the fringe. This will help to better incorporate your bang into your hairstyle.
Ask your stylist for heavy fringe that dusts just below the eyebrows. If done correctly, [it] can complement both long and short haircuts.
