Getting bangs is actually one of the easiest ways to update your look without having to cut an inch from the rest of your hair. It’s super stylish and really adds character to your features. It can also give you an entirely different vibe, depending on the cut and the style. If you’ve been wearing it the same way since the day you got it, it can get pretty uninteresting, which defeats the point. But see, that’s what we’re here for: to make sure your hairstyles never look uninspiring. Keep reading to get ideas on how to style bangs, the trendiest ways possible!
How to style bangs: 8 chic ways to keep your fringe hairstyle interesting
1. Wispy and wavy
Match a pretty beachy wave hairstyle with wavy and wispy bangs. This look is pretty and feminine and takes the edge off full, heavy bangs. The layers give this style extra texture, which is really what we’re going for.
Editor’s tip: You know that vitamin sea is the key ingredient to any beach-inspired hairstyle, right? So before you start working on the waves, make sure you mist your hair with TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray. This will help give your hair all the texture that it needs to achieve the perfect waves, both on your bangs and the rest of your mane.
If your bangs are getting dull and dreary, add some major zing by modifying it a bit and going for an uneven cut. Asymmetrical bangs lend a bolder, edgier look, and will say a whole lot about your style and confidence.
If sweet and romantic are more your style, go for the classic side-swept fringe and match with soft waves that bounce around your shoulders. You can go for a high side-swept like this one if you have shorter bangs, or if they’re much longer, you can keep it low so that your bangs fall over your brow.
Editor’s tip: For hair that bounces and behaves, use shampoo and conditioner that don’t weigh your tresses down. We love Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Shampoo and Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Conditioner. This pair will leave your hair looking and feeling soft, nourished, and full of natural volume.
4. Curly and side-swept
Don’t want plain? Then bring out the curlers, some hair spray, and a lot of guts, because those are what you’re gonna need to pull this style off. It may not be an ideal everyday look (unless you have the time, energy, and commitment), but it’s a great way to show off your unique style. Use TONI&GUY Body Amplify Creation Hairspray to keep your bangs curly and nicely swept to the side.
This look provides perfect symmetry and is a great option if you’re growing out your bangs. It’s also a very low maintenance style and can look good whatever your face shape is. If you’re going to get it trimmed, ask your stylist to cut them shorter in the center and keep the strands on the sides longer.
This look is super pretty, we really went and started braiding each other’s hair! It’s perfect for formal parties, prom, romantic dinner dates, and even casual days out, if you want to jazz up your everyday hair. It’s also a great way to camouflage the weird length of your bangs if you’re growing them out.
Editor’s tip: This style looks best with straight, shiny hair. To make sure frizz doesn’t ruin your look, wash your hair with TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and condition with TRESemme Keratin Smooth Conditioner. This pair helps to nourish each hair strand and leave hair gorgeously sleek and manageable.
Full, heavy bangs can look pretty intense. If you want to soften your look, accessorize with a pretty headband. This will make you look more feminine and youthful. Make sure you choose stylish ones that don’t scream kindergarten—you don’t want to look that young!
