Retro, edgy, classic or cool. Inspiring pointed bang styles ahead.

There’s nothing like the feeling of getting freshly cut bangs, whether it’s your first time or not. A fringe is an easy way to update your look and can be the perfect option if you have the itch to try out something subtle and new. But, if you’re looking for something a bit on the edgy side, don’t underestimate the many ways in which you can turn the classic fringe into something that looks a little artsier and fun like pointed bangs.

Pointed bangs, better know as V-shaped bangs, or triangle bangs have been around for years. It’s a style that has been widely worn by Gothic women and during the Retro fashion era that’s back and looks super fierce on many face shapes. Take cues from this style and create a look that works for you. Read on below for our favorite fringe styles inspired by pointed bangs:
