It is not technically official, but hair bangs are back with a massive bang! Also known as a fringe, hair bangs can enhance virtually any face shape — if worn correctly — and are extremely popular with celebrities. They are normally cut fairly straight around the eyebrows, but there are several ways to modify them. Here are five different styles for hair bangs to try out.
The Side Swept Bang
Side swept bangs are great for all hair types, whether thick or thin; straight or curly. They can also work for any face shape, but are particularly suitable for those who have a round face. If you have a high forehead or fine lines on your face, longer side swept bangs can serve as a good distraction. Short side swept bangs are a brilliant fit for round elongated face cuts. They can help steer people’s attention towards your chin, which is usually the main attraction in this case. Some of the celebrities that have spotted the side swept bang include Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Emma Stone, among others.
The Micro Fringe (Baby Bangs)
The micro fringe has gained significant recognition recently, and for good reasons. This cut consists of blunt or wispy strands hitting a few inches above the brows, and it is slightly retro and very polarizing. It is the perfect way to open up your face with a strong statement! Baby bangs are ideal for those who have round and oval faces. You may have recognized it on celebrities such as Carly Ray Jepsen, Vanessa Hudgens, and Emma Roberts.
The Blunt Bang
Blunt bangs are the best way to add some edge to a bland hairstyle. They are especially flattering for those who have long, oval faces. To make the most out of the look, consider using a shampoo and hair conditioner that will not overly soften your hair, making it look greasy even when it is clean. If you are interested in this hairstyle, you can draw inspiration from celebrities such as Emma Watson and Dakota Johnson.
The Curly Bang
If you are wondering whether you can have hair bangs with curly hair, then yes, it is possible! However, styling bangs when your hair is naturally curly can be rather difficult. The trick is to find a hairdresser who knows how to style curly hair properly. Mariah Carey, Beyonce, and Keri Russell are some of the celebrities who have been spotted with curly bangs.
The Eye-Grazing Fringe
If your face is square in shape, your jaw is almost as wide as your cheekbones, and you have angular features, then the eye-grazing fringe is for you. The key to perfecting this type of hair bang is to ensure that it is longer than it is above the brow, and tapered on the sides. It can also be wispier to open up some of your forehead. Examples of celebrities who have aced the eye-grazing fringe include Hailey Baldwin, Taylor Swift, and Tyra Banks.
