Rocking bangs like Rashida Jones is a task that only a few of us dare to attempt--no one wants to chop off their precious locks to such a short length, hate it, and then have to go through the torture of growing them out.
So before you take the plunge check out some tips from our friends at StyleCaster to find out which bangs are the best for your face shape!

For you beauties with round visages, Christina Ricci's sideswept bangs are a great style to try. Keeping the bangs longer and layered into your hair helps to soften your wider cheeks. The trendy blunt bang can also work for this face shape, to add a bit of length to your face - just be careful to not cut your bangs too short.

Square-faced ladies are a unique breed, with celebrities like Florence Welch and Heidi Klum to look up to. For this face shape, a longer eye-grazing bang works best as long as they are thin and layered. Avoid super blunt fringe or you'll end up making your face appear too boxy!

For gals with heart-shaped faces like Carey Mulligan, opt for sideswept bangs on the shorter side. This style helps to draw attention away from your more prominent chin (lets face it, that's the definition of a heart shape) and instead draw attention to your framed peepers.

Lucky for oval-faced girls like Rose Byrne: You can wear pretty much any bang shape. The best fringe look for you though is something that is a little bit long and thick, just barely grazing your eyebrows. Of course, if you have thick hair this style is perfect for you, but if you have locks on the thinner side, you can always adapt this look a bit and opt for face framing bangs that you can easily brush to the side.
