Bangs are an awesome hairstyle idea to try where you can switch up your look, without going for a drastic chop! But, as in with all hairstyles, getting hair bangs can be tricky, especially if you want straight bangs. While not necessarily an issue for those with straight hair, those without it will have to deal with some styling and blow-drying on the daily. And if you’re game for that, we are totally behind you! The main thing is to know exactly what you want so that you can easily describe and show your stylist. To help you out with the research, we’ve compiled a collection of straight bangs hairstyles and cuts to inspire your new straight style bangs.

A lighter layer of bangs that easily blend into the layers of your haircut is great if you’re a little worried about committing to a full set of fringe.

It’s a classic for good reason.

4. Classic Bangs

We consider this the most classic option when it comes to straight hair bangs. Some haircuts will involve blending your bangs into the rest of the style but this standalone option makes a major statement, in a good way.

6. Thick Silver Bangs

Believe it or not, those of us with thick hair sometimes have a hard time dealing with all that hair. Opting for a set of thick bangs takes some of the thickness off the rest of your hair, making it much easier to deal with.

9. Curved Straight Bangs

If you’re not completely sold on full bangs yet, consider a more flattering curved option. These bangs seamlessly blend into the rest of your hair for a flattering and easy transition.

10. Short Bangs

Don’t want to lose your super strong eyebrow game in this haircut? We don’t blame you. Opt for shorter bangs so that you can still show off your perfectly groomed brows.

11. Curved Bangs

This style will require a little blow dryer training as it’s best executed when you curve your bangs under a bit. Simply let them air dry until they’re 60% dry and use a round brush to blow dry them under until they’re 100% dry.

A softer and more understated option.

12. Feathered Bangs

Feathered edges soften a set of full bangs and make them accessible to virtually everyone.

Sometimes messy is best.

13. Messy Long Bangs

Start off with bangs that appear to be just a bit overgrown and a little longer on the sides. This style looks great with any updo style including a super messy bun.

Don’t sacrifice some of your best features on the road to full bangs.

14. Micro Bangs

We can’t get enough of this edgy trend and the way it gives you a full set of bangs without hiding your face. This is a rare example of a style that does it all and it’s one of our favorites.

15. Blown Out Bangs

This is a prime example of a way to wear your bangs if you ever find yourself tiring of a full set. Create a center part on damp hair, then blow-dry them to the sides for a totally different look.

Soft bangs + loose waves = the perfect summer style

16. Soft Side Bangs

Side bangs are known to be a softer bang option if you aren’t ready to commit to full bangs. This is a prime example of how side bangs work with lightly curled shoulder-length hair and we love the results.

17. Wavy Layered Bangs

The secret to completely blending your bangs into the rest of your style is opting for layers that line up. Blend the loose wavy texture of the rest of your strands into your fringe by letting your bangs maintain a bit of a natural wave.

18. Micro Bangs and a Ponytail

We love the way different styles take on a whole new life when paired with bangs. A thick set of micro bangs takes a simple ponytail to the next level.

19. Bangs and a Messy Bun

We’re big proponents of anything that streamlines our beauty routines while still allowing us to look put together. A full set of fringe takes a messy bun from casual to chic in no time at all.

20. Bangs and a Three-Strand Braid

If you haven’t yet mastered the intricate braids you’ve been lusting after, a full set of fringe is the best way to take a basic three-strand braid to the next level by adding some extra visual interest.

21. Bangs and a Beanie

Accessorize your side bangs by wearing a beanie and letting them peek out from underneath.

22. Center Parted Bangs

This style is one of the best ways to add some volume to straight hair. These straight bangs will act as a shorter layer that won’t get weighed down with the rest of your hair and will add instant volume to the top layer of your strands.

23. Side-Parted Bangs

A full set of straight bangs gets a second life when you simply brush them to the side for a set of pseudo-side bangs.

The best of everything.

24. Thick Versatile Bangs

Thick bangs with feathered ends are perhaps the most versatile option when it comes to bangs. You can wear them down and full, swept to the side, or combed all the way over as side bangs.

Two trends are better than one.

25. Cropped Bangs + Ombre

Pair slightly cropped bangs with a subtle ombre and nail two of this season’s trends in one.

These are the bangs that work for everyone.

26. Wispy Bangs

Wispy bangs are a lighter approach to a full set of fringe. They won’t look too heavy on your face and they’re a more universally flattering option.

This cropped cute style is one of our favorites.

27. Short Side Swept Bangs

Pair two of the earlier trends we mentioned together for a totally different look. We just love how side swept cropped bangs perfectly frames the face.
