It’s official: bangs of all shapes and sizes are everywhere! And while we’ve all thought about getting a trendy fringe hairstyle, few of us have actually dared to take the plunge. So, whether your ready or not, here are the best bangs to steal from the red carpet this season.
7 of the best bangs straight from the red carpet to copy, stat
1. Bardot bangs
Just look at how her beachy waves are brought to life with these soft, split-parted bangs, creating a fuller and more voluminous effect. It’s no wonder these are known to be the best bangs for fine hair!
Editor’s tip: For Alexa’s tousled, wavy finish, we suggest spritzing your hair with the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Sea Salt Spray. This will help to accentuate any natural waves or movement that you have, for a just-off-the-beach vibe.
2. Blunt bangs
All eyes were on Bella Hadid at the CFDA Fashion Awards this year, and not just because of her fuchsia power suit! Her pristine, long bob with a blunt fringe screams retro-tastic, yet has been given a contemporary touch with curled-under ends.
This modern take on Cleopatra’s signature ‘do is perfect for those of who want a high-fashion style that’s full of femme-fatale vibes. And honestly, who wouldn’t want to look like queen?
3. Baby bangs
Pair these edgy bangs with a fresh blow out, like Krysten has done, and get ready to rock and roll, baby!
Editor’s tip: These ’50s-inspired bangs can be temperamental, so make sure you always have a strong-hold hairspray on hand, like the TIGI Bed Head Hard Head Hairspray. This will help reduce pesky fly aways and keep your fringe in check.
4. Choppy bangs
Pixie hairstyles are currently dominating the mane game, so be prepared to see them everywhere.
However, if you want to keep a little length on the top, you can always choose to cut in some longer choppy bangs (a la Katy Perry) and you’ll easily give your locks a stylish boost. Thanks for the tip, KP!
5. Curly bangs
Think having curls or waves means you can’t get the fringe benefits? Well, here to blast your fears to pieces is Zendaya and her incredible luscious spirals – complete with an equally fabulous fringe.
This low-maintenance look can work well for ladies with waves or curls, as it shows off your beautiful texture like a dream. Plus, it’s the perfect excuse to channel those rocker-chick vibes!
6. Side bangs
What are the best bangs for all face types and hair textures? Side bangs, of course! Need proof? Just look at how Emma Stone rocks them and then you’ll understand why everyone (including us!) is obsessed with them.
So, if you’ve been rocking a centre part for a few years and are worried about committing to a full fringe, try to switch up your look by getting some sultry side-swept bangs cut in to test the waters.
7. Tinker Bell bangs
Wondering why they’re one of the best bangs around? Well, they’re wispy, romantic and (just like side bangs) are made for all face types. Pretty magical, right?
