Bangs, fringes – whatever you call them – how long have you been wanting one? Well, there’s no time like the present to make this wish a reality!
But cutting bangs is not for the unskilled. So, if you're like us and have hair commitment issues, here’s how you can still get in on the many trendy bangs for 2022 with 6 of our favorite bangs (out of so many).
Wispy Fringe Bangs
Perfected for a heart-shaped face, these types of bangs are more on the thin side to accentuate the chin. It’s a softer fringe style and lightly feathered towards the end. This eliminates the severity for which other styles like blunt bangs or cuts are known for.
It’s also a very low maintenance style and one of the hottest bang trends that continues into 2022 for its sassy and youthful nature.
One of the sexiest bangs ever invented (and no we’re not exaggerating here), the curtain bang is a flirty style that exudes elegance while staying cute for the girl next door look. Versatile is her name.
So, the look hangs like a curtain but without the boring drape. The hair is parted in the center, with the flattering bangs framing your face along either side. One thing that differentiates this bang from others is that the length isn’t uniform. The hair closer to the ends is slightly longer.
In styling curtain bangs, you can wear it straight, curly, or as ‘draped bangs,’ a somewhat longer version of the curtain bangs.
But what if you’re not sure how to cut curtain bangs or you’re looking for a curtain bang wig? Then you’re in luck. Check out our three lovely curtain bang ladies that are the perfect depiction of the beauty of the style.
Blunt bangs fall straight across the forehead without any wispy, draped, or feathery ends. A blunt bang is especially flattering for oval face shapes.
The look works best with naturally thick and straight hair.
This is a smooth blending of two worlds – a hybrid of a grown-out and a full bang. Following the shape of a bottleneck, the bang has a center part which is then curled away to the side with the hair longer at the sides.
If you’re wondering if the bottleneck bang would suit you, here’s a quick guide on choosing bangs based on the shape of your face. But bottleneck bangs work well with just about any style – curly, straight, wavy, long, or short.
If you have a round face, a thick side-swept bang would be a perfect hairstyle for you.
A part is made on one side with the hair swept to the other side at an angle across the forehead and just above one eye. The angle of the bangs elongates the face for a more oval shape and is soft and flattering around the edges.
Pair a bang with beach waves and instantly move from chic to glamorous.
For example, this wig is already styled with beach waves. So, you’d simply create a part to the side and bring the hair high and over to the opposite side while keeping the forehead exposed. You’ll then have it swooping down along the side of the face.
Technically, you won’t need to cut the wig to get this fringe look and it’s well worth the effort to style.
Don’t want to buy another wig? There’s an alternative
We agree that wigs make it easier to get bangs. After all, there’s no worry about constant salon visits to maintain the right length. And you won’t need to get happy and handy with the scissors.
But what to do if you already have a wig and don’t want to risk it with cutting a bang? Here’s the perfect alternative …
… Clip-In Bangs
For example, this thick wispy bang clip-in instantly transforms your current style into a wispy fringe bang. Or this thin wispy bang clip-in stays true to the nature of the wispy fringe. Both can be used to add bangs to short and long wigs or styles.
Why we love bangs
- Easy maintenance. Say hello to fewer bad hair days and yes to easy styling.
- More styles. With bangs, you can still enjoy a range of styling options. From buns, twists, and braids, you can style your hair in a variety of ways while showing off your bangs.
- Versatile. Now, while there are a few bang options that we say are perfect for a type of face, they aren’t exclusively linked. Many of the styles can be worn across different face shapes so you don’t need to feel tied to a particular style.
