How To Wear Bangs


Ever since The Bangs became all the rage this year, people have been wondering how to wear bangs without looking like their kindergarten photo. Bangs are nothing new and they have framed many faces for many years. In fact, people in many ancient cultures even wore bangs and the style has resurfaced in a major way recently, so it is definitely here to stay.

Wearing Bangs In A Modern Age

Here some hair style tips that can definitely bring your bangs in to modern times. Learn how to wear bangs with the right hairstyles and attitudes.

The Side-Swept Bangs

The side-swept bangs are cut longer, usually a few inches below the eyes. It’s a very versatile style that can be worn in many ways. It also works for all types of hair textures, including curly or wavy hair. It can be tied back, braided or held back with a clip but the most common way of wearing it is of course swept to the side of the head. It’s perfect for individuals who are wearing bangs for the first time or for the first time in a long time because it is easy to grow out and style. It works best for medium-length to long hair.

The Long Bangs

The long bangs graze the eyebrows, making it an excellent choice for women with high foreheads or long face shapes. It works well for straight and wavy hair but requires regular trimming to prevent the tips of the fringe from forming a curtain over the eyes. The long bangs is easy to style using a blow dryer, a few spritzes of hairspray and a brush. If you don’t want to go through regular trimming, grow it out and part hair in the middle or to the sides for a different look.

The Round Bangs

The best example for the round bangs that works is Lea Michele‘s cut. Her thick hair is cut in the front to form fringes that frame the line of the brows. On both sides of the fringe, the cut is graduated to longer lengths. This is a good cut for straight to medium wavy hair and is the perfect style to complement and correct strong angular lines in the face.

The graduated length of the fringe also helps soften the lines of the cheeks and jaws. This cut is easy to style with a blow dryer, brush and a medium-hold hairspray. It also works well for mid-length to long, straight or slightly wavy hair.

The Blunt Cut

The blunt bang is a traffic-stopping style that is bold and unapologetic. The ends of the bangs are cut so they are several centimeters above the top of the brows, thus providing a more stunning way to frame the eyes. It is not a look that suits everyone and it is a very strong style statement.

If you choose to go this route, then don’t go halfway because this also happens to be a style that is difficult to blend with the rest of the hair and requires regular trimming. It also doesn’t work for curly or wavy hair and is best for medium-textured straight hair. It works for chin-length or longer cuts and is even more stunning in a ponytail. A good tip on how to wear bangs like the blunt cut: wear it with confidence.
