You can use bangs (fringe) to help frame your face, accentuate your eyes and draw attention to your best features. There are many different types of bangs out there to suit all face shapes and hairstyles. Bangs are a great way to update your hairstyle with minimal risk. If you have long hair and are thinking of going short but too scared to take the plunge why not try a heavy blunt fringe first that way you can change your look drastically while still keeping the hair length.

Wispy Bangs:

This is the most minimal less dramatic style of bangs. You cut a small portion of hair to lightly drape over your forehead. It is easy to grow out if you do not like it. This hairstyle suits most face shapes.

Very Short Bangs:

This type of bang suits those with fine hair and should probably be avoided by those with thick unruly hair as it will be hard to tame. It is great for disguising large foreheads.

Blunt and Heavy:

This is the best style to bring out your eyes as it really draws attention to them. If you have a long face wear it round and soft and if you have a rounder face shape go for a sharper blunter cut.

Side Swept Fringe:

This fringe falls over one side of your face over one eye creating a mysterious effect. Looks great on oval, heart shaped, or square faces and it is great at minimising prominent features. Recommended to those with thick to medium textured hair.

Layered Feathered Bang

Bangs that have been razored or cut into, usually worn quite short. This style looks amazing with shorter hairstyles and on those with fine features.

    Bangs are a great way to change up your style, it doesn’t matter whether it is lateral side swept bangs or full frontal bangs. You can use bangs to fix a bad haircut or to disguise a large forehead. Side bangs, if well cut can make your face look more elegant and thinner.

    As a hair stylist I cut bangs everyday and it is quite simple to do, here are a few tips but make sure that you always cut your hair with super sharp scissors!

    Tips for cutting bangs that are side swept:

    #Firstly, separate the hair you want to cut. Pull the hair forward, make sure you pull the hair you don’t want to cut into a ponytail to keep it well away from the hair you want to cut into bangs.

    #Take a comb and run it under water and comb the hair, it is better to cut your bags wet or damp rather than dry, especially if you are a beginner.

    # begin cutting the first side to the length of your nose and work your way down. While you work to the other end of your hair start cutting less and less so that the hair is shorter at the beginning where you started to cut and longer at the other end of your face.

    #Blow dry bangs towards the longer side, you can use a flat iron if you want and just set with hairspray.

    I hope this helps you girls out!
