When you want a makeover, you often go to the salon and get a haircut. You say goodbye to your long hair and welcome a fresh, new ‘do. Why don’t you take your transformation to the next level? Bangs look good with short haircuts for women. The result is a trendy—and at times, even edgy—look. And the best part? Bangs look great with almost all hair cuts for 2020. Here are ideas on how you can wear short hair with bangs.
Ways to Style Short Hair with Bangs
1. Curly Bob with Bangs
Whether you have a chin-length bob or a medium bob, you can add fringe to it, especially if you have a long face. To make your look more exciting, create messy curls to go with your straight blunt bangs to play with two different textures.
Editor’s tip: If you have naturally curly hair, you can keep it as is and just blow-dry or iron your blunt bangs to keep them in shape. Then, keep your curls well-moisturized with Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Blooming Color Shampoo. This eco-friendly shampoo isn’t just for color-treated hair. Its murumuru butter can also keep your curly hair from getting dry.
2. Bob and Straight Blunt Bangs
Rock a sleek and straight bob and make it edgy by adding a full fringe. Keep it smooth and frizz-free with a drop of leave-on cream to tame those tutsang and tikwas.
3. Apple Cut Hair with Side Bangs
Side bangs can easily blend into an apple cut ‘do, so if you want to have bangs without making it look like you have one, this is the short haircut for you. If you want to jazz it up a bit more, dyeing your apple cut hair chocolate brown or adding caramel highlights can give it more depth and make it look fresh.
