Consider the shape of your face
Your face shape has a huge impact on how the bangs will look on you. There are different types of face shape, including oval, square, circle, long, heart, etc. Bangs typically look good on diamond, oblong, and heart-shaped faces. For people with round or square-shaped faces, bangs can make their faces look rounder and wider.
1.The type of wig

2.How thick you want the bangs to be
Another crucial factor you need to have in mind before you cut your bangs is how thick you want the bangs to be. Generally, thicker bangs look better than thinner ones.

3.Determine the length that you want
Again, you need to determine the length you want before you cut the bangs. The perfect way to cut your bangs is above the eyelashes and below the eyebrows. However, if you have a square or round face shape, you should cut the bangs shorter as it can make the face look more oval.
4.How do you want to cut the bangs- Straight across or down at the edge?
Bangs that slightly carve down at the edges generally look better since they tend to frame the eyes nicely. But if you prefer a more classic look, go for bangs that go straight across all the way to the side hairlines.
5.Decide if you want the bangs to fall in your eyes
It can be quite sexy to hide your eyes behind wispy bangs. However, no one wants to hide eyes in their hair. You can decide if you want hair in front of your eyes or not. Generally, many people do not like hair in their eyes, and they tend to swipe it up to the side when they have longer bangs.
