Bangs are back and more diverse than ever! We’re in an era where fringe – no matter their shape, size, or length, are making a comeback. They can be bold or flirty and can accentuate features. Searching for the perfect style can be overwhelming — especially with so many different looks to choose from — but with this selection you’re sure to find the perfect one just for you.

The Mod Bang

The mod bang in three words: sleek, thick, and blunt. These bangs seamlessly lay below the eyebrows for a chic and edgy look. They are the perfect way to confidently lay low in style.

The Shaggy Bang

Looking to achieve that “I woke up like this,” texture? The perfectly distressed and flirty look that doesn’t overpower your face is the shaggy bang. These bangs can be swooped to the side, parted straight down the middle, or tousled messily for an effortless yet stylish look.

The Micro Bang

Baby, short or micro — no matter what you want to call this fringe, it is so in. Micro bangs can be blunt or shaggy depending on your personal style, but always a nice combo of soft and edgy with a pristine feminine touch. If you are looking for a fresh modern change, micro bangs can be the perfect way to make a statement. Bonus feature: Micro bangs are perfect for those looking to give the illusion of a more elongated forehead, as they start a few inches above the eyebrows.

The 70s Bang

The 70s fringe is back and giving us major boho chic meets rock & roll vibes. The wispy texture of the 70s fringe is iconic when parted down the middle and shifted to the sides. They add natural volume in an effortless way and can be flawlessly achieved when your shaggy bangs have grown-out. This fringe is perfect for those searching for a flattering vintage cut.

The Curly Bang

Embrace your natural curls in more ways than one by showing the world that a chic and flirty fringe is for curly girls too! If you’re looking to cut your curly fringe, make sure you go into a curly hairstylist and ask them to cut using the curl by curl method. Also, make sure you determine beforehand how long you want your bangs to be and whether or not you want your brows to show. Lastly, cut your bangs dry – never wet to avoid cutting them shorter than you’d like.

The Side Swept Bang

The side swept bang is the perfect face framing layer. They can be short and playful or long and feathered. This bang is perfect for those who like to switch up their look as they can be parted to the side or straight down the middle. Long side swept bangs help to create the illusion of a slimmer face shape, while shorter side swept bangs can add roundness.
