The fringe or bang in the front is left longer and styled to one side to give the effect of a diagonal movement and also to reduce the volume of the forehead. The sides are styled on to the face, also left longer and given a wispy soft touch. In fact, the overall look that this hairstyle gives is a very wispy soft look that tends towards formal. 

Short And Straight II
This hairstyle gives the wearer a spiked, messy look that would be best suited for a fun evening. It takes away the emphasis from the squareness of the face and gives it an oval and more balanced appearance. The bangs are wispy and messy, with an opening almost at the centre of the forehead. The sides are longer and draw the maximum amount of attention from the onlookers. 

Medium Length And Wavy
For this hairstyle, the hair at the back is cut to shoulder-length and the layers gradually get longer, till halfway up the head. The sides are angle-layered, and finish at the same height, which helps bring them out softly, and takes away the attention from a broad jaw line. The bangs on the front are swept to one side and the sides, starting at the top, finish halfway behind the ear, and add height to the wearer’s face. 

Medium Length And Straight

The layers in this case, are heavy and over-extended, through the back and sides. The waves in the hair are accentuated, which in turn decreases the attention, on the heavy jaw line. The top can be left, a little flat if the need be; it will be compensated by the length of the hair at the back and sides.
