22 Best Wavy Hair with Bangs Ideas for 2021

Get inspired by these stylish fringe ideas.

Wavy hairstyles are one of those styles that aren’t going away anytime soon! Sitting somewhere between straight and curly hair, this hair pattern doesn’t usually start right at the root of the hair. Instead, wavy hair is often thinner until mid-shaft where it starts to curl into a loose pattern. Specifically, wavy hair with bangs has been one of the most popular styles this year.

This wavy look is fun, flirty, and easy to style. Plus, the fringe gives an instant update. If you have naturally wavy hair or are looking for new ways to style your hair with bangs, why not give wavy hair with bangs styles a try? We’ve rounded up wavy hair with bangs hairstyles that you can easily recreate at home, with little to no fuss.
