Popular Women’s Hairstyles with Bangs
Hairstyles with bangs are becoming more popular today, since they can change the shape of a face, pull attention to your eyes, and soften your overall look. Bangs help to soften the lines of your face, and sometimes you may use them to keep your hair softer looking at the sides of your face. Before you select a hairstyle with bangs, visit a professional salon for a consultation, so you can decide if hairstyles with bangs will work for the shape of your face.
A bob style haircut with bangs will have more than simply a fringe of short hair on the forehead. Hairstyles with bangs are able to show off style, flirty-ness and fun, in addition to being very practical. If you have thicker, shorter bangs, they may be easier for you to control, since a few strands here and there out of place won’t be as noticeable. Thin bangs may be longer, and can even drape over your eyes, if you like. You can tease or curl bangs for greater volume, or sweep them across your forehead for a wavier style.
There are various types of bangs that you can include with your hairstyles. Blunt bangs are generally cut evenly across your forehead, and they usually don’t fall below the eyebrows. Choppy bangs are textured for a slightly messy, more casual look. Baby bangs are cut straight across the forehead, and are very short, generally close to your hairline. Asymmetric bangs are uneven in shape, cut shorter on one side than the other.
Parted bangs may be seen with longer hairstyles. They are longer than blunt bangs and they usually part in the middle of the forehead. Fringed bangs are cut in a textured way and can be worn in puffy, contrasting or straight hairstyles. Side swept bangs offer a longer look and can be combed off to one side. This is an especially practical way to wear your bangs when you are growing them out. Barely-there bangs are wisps or pieces of hair that you allow to fan across your forehead. These bangs look especially good with layered hairstyles.
While most styles of bangs can be flattering and frame your face, many professional stylists recommend that you avoid the “baby bang” style, since this short bang can be unflattering to the shape of most peoples’ faces.
