22 Best Wavy Hair with Bangs Ideas for 2020

Wavy hairstyles are one of those styles that aren’t going away anytime soon! They sit somewhere between straight and curly hair. Unlike curly hair, the 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. They’re fun, flirty and easy to style, and when you throw a fringe into the mix, this look gets an instant update. If you have naturally wavy hair or are looking for new ways to wear your hair with bangs, why not give wavy hair with bangs styles a try? We’ve gathered several wavy hair with bangs hairstyles below that you can easily recreate at home, with little to no fuss.
