1. Long hair with curtain bangs

If you have a wide forehead, curtain bangs can help create balance and proportion on your face. Curtain bangs offset the width of your forehead, giving an illusion of a longer, oval-shaped face. To create this effect, part your hair at the center and separate your bangs in the middle, too. Then, keep the rest of your hair sleek and shiny.

Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Straight

Editor’s tip: Use Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Straight for smoother, straighter, and frizz-free hair. You don’t need to do a lot of styling anymore.

2.  Wavy hair with blunt bangs

With wavy hair, your tresses get more bounce, volume, and texture. Maintain naturally wavy hair by applying leave-on cream before you get out of your house to make your hair moisturized and frizz-free all day. Meanwhile, you can make straight hair wavy by using a curling iron with a medium to large barrel. You can also use a blow dryer. Don’t forget to blow dry your bangs as well. If you let them dry on their own, they’ll get frizzy and out of shape, ruining your overall look.

Get this ‘do and every day would seem like runway day. You can also make your look more exciting by getting unconventional highlights like purple or blue. To maintain your hair, aside from using the right shampoo and conditioner, treat your locks to a weekly application of hair mask to keep it well-moisturized.
