How to Cut and Style Korean Curtain Bangs

This fringe isn't going away anytime soon.

Curtain bangs have become a staple in many haircuts over the past year and a half. This fringe style allows you to test the waters when it comes to bangs without fully committing to a full, straight across the style. Curtain bangs add a flattering face-framing element to any style, but they can be pushed to the side or worn back if you don’t want to show off the fringe. Korean curtain bangs are a popular low-maintenance variation of this look we’ve been seeing on celebrities to everyday people.

How to Ask for Korean Curtain Bangs

When asking your hairstylist for Korean curtain bangs, explain that you want fringe cut on an angle, starting right around the top of your cheekbone and then gradually getting longer at the end. The exact point where the fringe start can vary depending on your face shape and the specific look you’re going for. This type of fringe is most flattering with a middle part, so how you part your hair is something to consider when trying this look. Plus, it never hurts to bring a few inspo pictures with you.

If you’re feeling adventurous or want to touch up your bangs without going to the salon, you can try to cut your bangs at home.

A wispy variation of a classic curtain bang style is perfect if you’re new to the world of fringe. A style like this isn’t a big commitment and can complement any style, from a short bob or long, waist-length strands.

To keep your fringe in place all day, use a lightweight hair spray, like Nexxus Weightless Style Ultra Light Hair Spray. We love this product because it keeps your hair in place all day while giving your strands a soft, matte finish.

2. Short Korean Curtain Bangs

Want more of a traditional bangs style while still staying true to the curtain look? A short Korean curtain bang looks like this is perfect for this.

If you want to keep your hair sleek and smooth, use a serum like Suave Simply Styled Anti-Frizz Smoothing Serum. This serum is great because it helps lock in moisture, so you have a frizz-protected style.

3. Copper Bangs

Let your curtain bangs stand out even more by showing off a new warm hue. This copper color beautifully highlights your complexion and adds a natural shine to your hair.

To make sure your hair stays vibrant for as long as possible, use Suave Vivid Color Shampoo and Conditioner. We love this set because it uses an Amino Acid Complex to help strengthen your hair from the inside while still protecting it from breakage on the outside. Plus, your color stays vibrant for up to 40 washes.

4. Long Korean Curtain Bangs
