The Different Types of Bangs

“Should I get bangs?” 

It’s a question most women have asked at some point in their lives. However, too many women have been unhappy with how bangs look on them after they make the chop. This is often because we forget that there are more types of bangs than just the straight-across style we rocked as kids. Fortunately, there are tons of different fringe styles; it’s just a matter of finding the right one for you. Keep reading for the different types of bangs to find the one that you love! 

Blunt Bangs

Blunt bangs are the style that most people think of when they hear the word bangs. This style is cut straight across so that it falls along the forehead, usually somewhere around the eyebrows. It’s a classic style that works on a lot of people, but if you want to avoid the 3rd-grade look, head to a salon for a professional cut. 

Curtain Bangs

Curtain bangs are experiencing a real moment in hair trends right now, thanks to their easy-to-wear, versatility, and low maintenance. Designed for the center part, curtain bangs are long and frame the face like a set of curtains. Because they’re quite long and loose, they’re easy to grow out. Plus, they don’t require much styling, so they won’t disrupt your hair routine. 

Micro Bangs

Also known as baby bangs, micro bangs are a trendy look that combines vintage and modern styling for a whole new look. This style is cut short and the bangs usually fall at the middle of your forehead or higher. It’s a bold look, so make sure your overall styling can stand up to it!

Layered Bangs

If you’re not too sure about getting bangs but can’t resist the temptation anymore, layered bangs are a great option. They’re cut to blend in with the rest of your hair while still framing the face. Instead of standing out as a fringe, the layered bang contributes to the overall hairstyle. 

Side-Swept Bangs

Side-swept bangs are another great option for those who aren’t quite sure of the bang situation yet. This style is cut to be pulled to the side, like a curtain bang for a side part. And they are similarly easy to maintain and require little styling while still giving texture and framing. 

Feathered Bangs

Feathered bangs feature micro-layers cut into the ends of the hair to give texture and movement. Like curtain bangs, they tend to be cut longer. However, they can also be styled in a variety of ways, so you can choose where your part is.
