Cut either thick or feathery, bottleneck bangs start with a close part in the middle of the forehead, and then swoops dramatically to either side with the longest piece landing somewhere around your cheekbone. As the name suggests, the shape of the bang resembles the luxurious curves of the neck of a classic glass bottle. At this point one might be wondering what exactly sets this bang apart from its sister, the curtain bang? While the curtain bang exists more so on the sides of your head and is a little longer, bottleneck bangs are a true across-the-forehead moment with a small part in the middle and lands higher up on your face.
What the two styles share is their amazing ability to be perfectly customized to your face shape and hair type. Change up the length of the longest piece depending on whether you want to highlight your brows, eyes, or cheekbones. Let your strands lay flat, or use a curling iron or straightener to shape the ends away from your face. Whichever way you slice it, bottleneck bangs are the perfect accessory to whatever hairstyle you’ve already got going on. With all the best parts of a bang (youthful, eye popping) and all the best parts of a fringe (movement, face framing) bottleneck bangs are truly a win-win.
