Curtain bangs often go past your eyebrows. They’re parted at the center and swept a little toward each side of your forehead. They look softer and lighter than a full, blunt fringe, so they’re a great option if you want something less overwhelming.

3. Long Hair With Side-Swept Bangs

Side-swept bangs were all the rage in the early 2000s, and they’re trending again this year. Wear them with scrunched hair for a relaxed and slightly textured look.

4. Low Ponytail With Bangs

Rock a messy ponytail to create an effortlessly chic, weekend look. Style your hair this way when you meet your friends for coffee or watch a movie. And to make sure your fringe stays in good shape, wrap it around a hair roller, give it a quick blow dry, and style it with your fingers.
