protip_icon Before You Get Started
  • Short haircuts, especially bobs with bangs and lots of layers, require frequent trimming every 1-2 months to maintain the look.
  • Consider your hair type before getting bangs, as they get greasy faster than the rest of the hair. So, if you have oily hair, you may need to wash them more frequently.
  • Hairstyles like short bobs do not suit an oblong or rectangular face, as they don’t soften the prominent jaw. Instead, a mid-length layered cut with side bangs is the best choice.
  • Sleek Asian hairstyles complement the round-shaped face. Sleek high buns or ponytails with deep side partings give an elongating effect.
