Bangs are becoming more and more popular with both celebrities and the general population. Stars including Selena Gomez, Rachel Bilson, and Keira Knightley have been spotted in 2010 sporting thick fringe styles. Not sure how to make the blunt bangs work for you? Try out some of these options and let your bangs be the star of the show!
1. Straight and Sleek
If your hair is naturally straight, why fight it? Pick up a bottle of Gloss Drops from Paul Mitchell and blow your hair out. Finish with a straightener, if necessary. Straight and sleek locks will be best complemented with a long bang, laying down past the eyebrows. This will create a modern style that is easy to maintain. Additionally, a super long fringe will add some edge to your style, while keeping it chic. This ‘do will stand out even more if you have very dark locks. Talk about hot!
2. Beach Babe Wavy
To create a more playful look using your blunt bangs, try keeping it a little tousled. To create this laid-back look, scrunch your ends while blow drying. Or, pin your hair in a few loose buns while blow drying. This will create loose waves that scream sporty. Finish off your beach babe look with a light layer of long bangs. Ideal for a girl on the go, this style can go from the office to dinner to the party effortlessly. Add some blond highlights around your face for an extra pinch of the sun-kissed look.
3. Fiercely Fashionable Bob
For a more severe look, take the plunge and chop off your long locks while maintaining your blunt bang. Make sure your bang is always perfectly straight to keep your bob looking modern and fresh. Poor upkeep will be detrimental to your look! Fringe paired with a bob create a look full of edge and high-fashion. If you like this look, but don’t want to make the commitment to cutting a bob, try combining your bangs with a sleeked back bun or ponytail. You will still get the fashionista look, but can still opt for long styles.
Any way you wear them, bangs are a great way to make a fashion statement. They can look great on anyone, you just have to find the style best suited for your face and wardrobe. Don’t think twice about adding some fringe to your forehead!
