WHY WE LOVE IT: More universally flattering than blunt fringe, gently arched bangs draw attention to eyes while hiding a multitude of sins: a long (or short) forehead, an unruly cowlick, furrow lines.
WORKS BEST FOR: Those with long or oval faces, since the strong horizontal line visually reduces length.
MAKE IT YOUR OWN: If you have a full or round face, ask your stylist to make the bangs thinner and wispier (a heavier fringe will accentuate roundness), says Naomi Campbell's stylist Garren.
STYLIST TIP: Many salons do free bang trims between appointments. Good thing, since they need to be cut every three to four weeks.
