When new seasons come, there will also be new trends. Aside from the chic new clothing pieces that you can get, you also have to think about hair and makeup. If you love changes in hairstyle, then fall is the best time for doing one. Bangs are a big thing in Hollywood now. In the past, there was a general opinion that bangs don’t look good on every face shape. But today, with the right hairstylist you can pull off any hairstyle that you want.
Celebrities love rocking fun fringe cuts. They have the luxury do to a lot of hairstyle changes, and most of them do different types of bangs. Voluminous bangs and layered, messy bangs are just a couple of the options. It all depends on your personal preferences. But once you decide to do such a change, there is no turning back. The bangs can be done on any hair length and color and can be a refreshing change.
The beautiful Nina Dobrev is the newest celebrity that joined the fringe club. Her latest appearance includes an extremely short bob and chic bangs. Before this change, Nina had a wavy lob. Anyway, this new hairstyle very much flatters her facial features.
Emily Ratajkowski and Bella Hadid rocked similar hairstyles, both at the Cannes Film Festival. The models flaunted elegant updos with layered fringe. This look very much reminds of the iconic one that Audrey Hepburn used to wear in the past. It is also ideal if you want to show off your perfect earrings and necklace.
Here are some gorgeous ways to upgrade your hairstyle with bangs this fall. Take a cue from celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Olivia Wilde, and Joan Smalls and make a small change that will elevate your whole look.
While long hair has its own romantic beauty, there is something undeniably adorable yet edgy about short hairstyles with bangs. Often, for women, it’s tough to take the plunge and cut out hair short because it feels masculinizing – however, there is nothing more feminine than girlish straight across bangs. Cute pixie cuts or short bob hairstyles with bangs are a great way to take off a heavy weight of hair off your shoulders, while still keeping things stylish. In this post I’ll show you some of the best pictures of short bob hairstyles with bangs, but first here are some things to keep in mind.
How to Choose Short Haircuts with Bangs
Switching to short hairstyles with bangs can be a great way to completely change up your look. Different kinds of bangs can have a big impact on the shape of your face, and as long as you choose the right kind of bangs for your face shape, they will be very flattering. You have a few fringe options:
Straight Across Bangs
Straight across bangs are the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of hairstyles with bangs. They remind us of Bettie Page, or Vidal Sassoon’s 5-point haircut – stylish, feminine, and a little retro. There are some things you should keep in mind, before getting short hairstyles with bangs like these:
• They look best on oval, rectangular, and diamond shaped faces, or in other words, medium and long faces.
• They will make round or square face shapes look more square.
• They are a great trick to hiding a large forehead.
• They require frequent salon visits, lest they start impeding your vision.
Variations include: peekaboo bangs and asymmetrical bangs.
Side-swept bangs don’t quite convey the same powerful effect as straight across bangs, but they are an excellent choice for those wanting to try short haircuts with bangs for the following reasons:
• Side-swept bangs will flatter almost any face shape.
• They allow for very versatile hair styling. You can sweep them into either direction, or pin them back nicely.
• As they start to grow out, they blend easily into the rest of the hair without causing an annoying “grow out” stage.
Wispy bangs are a very popular hair cutting choice, nowadays. They are a much softer version of the straight across bangs. They are much less in your face than straight across bangs (quite literally), but they still frame the face nicely. Here are some reasons to consider short haircuts with bangs on the wispy side:
• They give the same femininity as straight across bangs.
• They are a very modern take on the bangs.
• They can hide a high forehead, but without making the face appear too short.
• In fact, they are excellent for most face shapes.
Baby bangs are the look for anyone who really wants to stand out. Depending on the hair color and styling, they might seem more rockabilly, high fashion, punk, or retro-futuristic. Here are some things to keep in mind about them:
• For most people, they are not very flattering.
• They definitely show bravery and a unique style.
How Short Should You Go?
Let me be the devil in your ear, who asks, “what are you afraid of?” Short pixie hairstyles with bangs are actually ultra cute and feminine, and fantastic for summer time. Do you get headaches a lot? A pixie haircut will totally fix it. In my opinion, everyone looks good with a pixie haircut no matter their face shape, but if you’re nervous, leave your fringe longer and sweep it to the side, and it’ll frame your face in a very flattering way.
I didn’t manage to talk you into the pixie? Well, a bob is also an excellent choice. If you keep bob hairstyles with bangs curled, they’ll be lovely and soft, but you can also straighten them for that high-fashion takes on prisoners, Anna Wintour look.
Long Bob/ Lob
It’s undeniable that long bobs have been super popular in the past few years. They require fewer salons visits than the pixie and the bob hairstyles, and they’re definitely the safest choice for anyone who is feeling nervous. For a bit of a ‘70s vibe, pair them with straight across bangs, or stick to side bangs for a more modern look.

29. Messy Auburn and Pink Bob
I love messy, piecey short hairstyles that look like you just rolled out of bed. The streaks through the bangs, which were cut to look a little wispy, give the whole look a lot of brightness and lightness. The pale pink streaks through the auburn also deserve a mention.
30. Black and Silver Ombre Long Bob
The effect when ombre short hairstyles with bangs keep the bangs one color, and dye most of the rest of the hair, the result is really striking. Thanks to the straight lines and the contrast between the black silver, this look is doubly striking.
31. Granny Curls and Bangs
Silver hair is the hair color trend of the year, and pairing it with short bob haircuts with bangs is a super fun way of combining a really young style with a more mature color. By keeping the roots darker you can keep your hair healthy, and not worry too much about maintenance.
32. Ash Brown Curls and Side-Swept Curls
This ash blonde and brown balayage is oh-so-subtle, and the piecey curls are fun yet sexy. I love short hairstyles with bangs that incorporate the side-swept curly bangs into the rest of the hair.

Dark tresses were accented with just a touch of copper and blonde, making for a really lovely contrast. The messy long bob with bangs that are kept feathered is fresh and summery, to go with the bright color contrast.

The alternating streaks of magenta and lavender provide a lovely contrast to this softly curled slanted bob. The crown braid in this look is also lovely, and shows that you can get creative when styling short haircuts with bangs.

Setting aside the gorgeous shell crown for a moment, this is a badass example of short bob haircuts with bangs. The baby bangs are hard to pull off, but if you have the face for them, they’ll keep your image sharp in everyone’s mind, especially when paired with such an extraordinary color.
38. Sakura Slanted Bob
This straightened, subtly slanted bob with straight across bangs is a classic look. It’s a little bit editorial, but still adorable – especially when paired with such a gorgeous blend of pink and dark brown hair colors.
39. Forest Green Punk Balayage
Short haircuts with bangs go super well with punk hair colors and styling. Smoky and lime green contrast in a way that is very messy and grunge, especially when the styling and the side-swept bangs are also stylishly messy.
40. Neon Sunset Rockabilly Bob
Usually, my first thought when I see bob hairstyles with bangs is “rockabilly”, and this look certainly fits the bill, despite the extreme colors. Speaking of, orange and purple is one of my favorite color combinations, since it reminds me of the sunset. If you want to break the mold, try this hairstyle out; just remember the maintenance will be intense.
41. Thick & Textured Side-Swept Bangs
I gotta admit something – while we’ve seen a lot of short haircuts with bangs so far, some more on the girly side, and others more edgy and mature, this one is my favorite because it manages to strike the perfect balance. The blonde and caramel highlights, and textured waves look lush and touchable, and the length of the hair and side-swept bangs are sure to flatter almost any face shape.
42. Bombshell Blown Out Bob
The verdict is in: red is the sexiest hair color. This voluminous long bob proves that even straight across bangs, when paired with the right shade of dye, a teasing comb and a blow dryer, can look smolderingly hot.
43. Raspberry Swirl Bob
The great thing about short hairstyles is that sometimes a touch of texturizing spray and a rapid shake of the head are all you need to look effortlessly messy. A great layered bob, expertly dyed with warm shades of red and orange, also makes everything easier.
44. Vivid Sunset Layered Balayage
Allowing just a touch of vivid colors run through the ends of the hair is a great way of playing with unusual colors, while keeping most of the hair natural. I also totally love these longer, layered side-swept bangs that go oh-so-well with this asymmetrical long bob.
45. Rose Gold Swirl
This rose gold textured bob keeps the roots darker for easy maintenance. The side-swept bangs and gentle waves are ultra flattering, for any face shape.
46. A Touch of Pumpkin Spice Bob
Running some orange strands through an otherwise blonde textured bob is a great way of getting short hairstyles with bangs ready for autumn. You can achieve this kind of piecey curls with a thin curling iron.
47. Painted Fire Long Bob
This layered long bob is on fire! Bright orange streaks offset by natural dark roots keep things bright and playful, but sleek side-swept bangs and classy layers make this haircut wearable by anyone.
48. Redhead Pixie Bob
Short hairstyles with bangs can be extremely feminine, even more so than some long haircuts, if styled the right way. By keeping the straight across bangs just above the brows, the eyes stand out, while keeping the front of the bob a touch longer and curled inwards has a pretty 1950s charm.
49. Orange Creamsicle Balayage With Side-Swept Bangs
Long bangs, swept to the side over one eye, exude mystery and intrigue. Side bangs are also quite flattering, especially for rounder and square face shapes. Paired here with a pastel orange, this look is flatteringly out of the ordinary.
50. Ash & Copper Ombre with Airy Bangs
The copper ombre added to ash brown hair here gives a lot of warmth. Wispy bangs are also a great option for anyone who wants easy styling for short haircuts with bangs. They’re airy and light, and don’t shorten the face the way fuller bangs might.
51. All That Jazz Bob
With this take on short haircuts with bangs, I immediately picture Catherine Zeta-Jones killing it on the stage in the film Chicago. You could easily channel your inner femme fatale with this black bob with curled in ends.
52. Antique Mauve Graduated Bob with Bangs
Graduated bobs are a way of rocking short hairstyles with bangs, without actually looking like your hair is actually that short. Pin straight locks and a metallic mauve keep this look chic and modern.
53. Old-School French Bob with Bangs
This elegant, snow-white haircut will have you feeling like a cosmopolitan flapper, sitting at a swanky Paris cafe in the ‘20s. This is one of those short hairstyles with bangs that are simultaneously retro and modern.
54. Curly Bangs with Green Tips
This is adventurous styling for short haircuts with bangs, but it is perfect for a ‘50s themed party, with an edge! Tightly curl both your bangs and hair ends, for extra bravery, pair it with colorful tips.
55. Box Bob with Feathery Bangs
Ombre that starts right where the bangs end is a lovely choice for short haircuts with bangs. Additionally, the bangs here are quite feathery, which takes away some of the severity of a traditional box bob.

The year of 2015 with all of its seasons has thrown us back into the 1970s decade, an era that was ruled by fringe and denim, suede and bell bottoms. We’ve been soaring through the different styles that have taken over the fashion runways and the shelves in every store, bringing back the times of peace and flowers and cowboy magic. We have fallen in love with that time period once again, and those of us born later on in the ‘80s and ‘90s stand astounded with the vintage feel that has taken hold. While garments are totally ‘70s, it does not end there! We also have the retro ‘70s hairstyles coming in to stay a while, among the season’s fashions being the incredible fringe in all its glory. While we love the leather and the suede, the camel hues and the open midriff twin set outfits, the hair really does us in with the gentle sway and the cutesy attitude. There is just something so very “Sweet Valley High” about sporting those bangs with aplomb. Since fringes are totally in, we thought we’d supply you with a master list of 1970s hairstyles with bangs that will help you really rock the look over the summer months that are currently peeking around the corner. After all, we can always use a fresh take on a classic look, no matter how perfectly in the retro look may happen to be.
Blunt Textured Bangs
The combination of blunt bangs with a loose ponytail with a whole lot of texture was seen of late sported by Cynthia Bailey as she attended the American Heart Association Go Red for Women event. Her fringe was in a bit of a disarray, nothing close to perfect on its own but matching the general style of the ‘do perfectly well. There is just something about having the strands bend any which way, just as if you got out of the shower and didn’t care to straighten the blunt locks on the forehead.
Wispy Straight Bangs
A look that really goes great with pin straight hair is that created by Azealia Banks for the Nasty Gal Melrose store launch of late. She looked positively stunning with her hair loose and the bangs kept wispy, falling to her brows and looking feathery despite the thick mane of thick black hair. Have the hair in the back, starting from the crown come in from a center part was a great choice as well. It just adds to the strong female look.
Go Casual and Cute in the Bangs
Casual and cute is just how one would describe Jessica Hart with her ‘70s hair with blunt bangs and her slightly dishevelled look worn to the Bergh Ball within the last bit. The waves in her hair were quite lovely, but the bangs are what keeps the picture of Hart appearing all over the place. A curtain from the center of the top of the head is a great way to add to the volume of the fringe, as well as thickening it up where necessary.
A Bit More Subtle
Pixie Lott should be known as a pixie herself, even if her hair is long and wavy. She wore her mane artfully done in a dishevelled manner, subtle bends in the strands with wispy bangs at the Olivier Awards. From the crown of the head fall the pieces into just around the eyes that have been perfectly lined with all the right amounts of kohl. She looked adorable in any case and so can anyone trying to emulate the design.
Extra Long Strands
For women like Naomi Campbell whose foreheads are really high, the long wavy hairstyle with the bangs is a great option. She wore her hair thus, the bangs falling from further back and catching the light as the black strands shine nicely, showing off her still killer moves. The edges graze the tops of the eyes, but the stylist cut at just the right length to look positively fashion savvy. We do love the straight black hair though, with the slight wisp giving it a bit more of flair. This is one of our favorite looks overall among all the different ways to master wearing 1970s bangs. The longer the face, the better this look will suit the bone structure, particularly with the longer, sleeker strands.
Subtly Wavy Baby Bangs
An absolutely gorgeous look to pull off is that by Caroline Sieber worn to the Chanel fashion runway show held in Paris. She wore her hair down in a subtly wavy manner at the ends, baby bangs swept slightly to the side being the hallmark of the design. The side sweep is deep and means a triangle open spot to one side of the forehead. Plus, this look only makes it appear as if your hair is thicker if it was thick enough to begin with.
Alexa Chung knows just how to play up the tousled ‘70s look that is pretty in the style loop these days. She had her slept-in waves looking divine during the Annual Night of Stars, her bangs slightly wispy and so very much on the edgy side. Her medium length cut only adds to the demure status while unsuspecting individuals are left beguiled throughout.
Beachy Blow Dry
Lea Michele knows just how to rock the full bangs with the slight split in the center, completely amped up with the highlights and lowlights that are brought to light. She looked positively adorable with her hair waved for a beach girl and her bangs skimming the tops of her eyes as she made her appearance at the “Sons of Anarchy” movie premiere. Her long hair certainly added to the spicy creation.
Eye Grazing Bangs
While some of the ‘70s fringe hairstyles have been geared towards a more natural amount of hair in one place, Miroslava Duma defies that and ensures to cut the bangs from further up on the crown, bringing the fringe down like a curtain and looking so very cute with the eye grazing bangs sported to the Stella McCartney fashion show. This look is especially beautiful with chestnut hair that catches the light.
The Dishevelled Chic Fringe
Positively alluring is the dishevelled look in all manners, which Suki Waterhouse loves to sport constantly. Last we checked, she was wearing the chic ‘do at the Burberry Brings London to Shanghai event. Her eye grazing strands were brushed to each side, a wide gap left in the middle as the light reflected off the honey and the lighter blonde of the bangs.

Don’t miss: How to Find The Right Bangs For Your Face Shape
Every woman deserves the right to sport trendy hairstyles with bangs, but not every type of bang may suit her. Some lovely ladies can pull off the fringe without a hitch, having their eyes pop from underneath the cut, flattering their face and giving them a sexy, vibrant and certainly youthful look.
On the other hand, the rest of us have to deal with bangs looking out of place, not really matching our face and certainly not looking anything like the celebrity photo you used when asking the hairdresser to get you the right cut. You may even be put off by pictures of your childhood where those cute little bangs wreaked havoc on your life.
Since the desired effect is spectacular if the cut is done correctly, it may be worth a shot again, this time without impatiently waiting for them to grow out so you can actually tie your hair back sleekly instead. You will want these lovely bangs for their extra dimension added to the look, particularly with updos and certainly gathered hairstyles.
The shape of your face determines the type of bangs that suits you overall. One major rule to remember, however, is never to cut your own bangs, even if to trim the edges. Since most good hairdressers should give you free trims, you should be opting for professional cuts instead of your amateur version on your own self.
Here we present an in-detail guide on how to find the right bangs for your face shape that will emphasize your best assets, camouflaging any small flaws.
Bangs for Long Face Shape
Since bangs are known to decrease the length of your face, you will certainly want to adopt this hairstyle if your face is of a longer build. The higher forehead that’s a trademark with long faces is made to all but disappear under the fringe while width is added to the features.
Longer bangs are your best bet here, in a blunt cut that has the edges slightly softened for a trendier, more modern look. You can achieve this by using a big and round boar-bristle brush on damp hair, going side to side from the root to prevent cowlicks and ensure you’ve gotten all the waves out. Finish off with a flatiron to get a straighter look.
Bangs for Oval Face Shape
Angled, shorter bangs look best on an oval face structure, with the razored cut the most elegant among the styles. It is probably the perfect face that can sport all types of bangs, including a heavy cut with curves on the sides or a super-short edgy cut that’s barely past the hairline.
Airy, pin-straight bangs accentuate the prettiest parts of the face as well, with the edges hitting between the brow and the lashes. You can air-dry or blow dry shorter bangs going downwards so that the pieces don’t stick up.

Bangs for Round Face Shape
If you want to add some angles to a rounder face, you might want to opt for a style where it’s shorter in the middle, giving length and having the face appear more oval instead.
You want to be showing more of your forehead so go for the airy, wispy look or even the asymmetric cut that diverts the eye away from the rounder features. You don’t want to make your face appear any rounder than it is so you may also want to go for a graphic, cured shape that flatters your bone structure.
Bangs for Heart-Shaped Face
Heart-shaped faces are gorgeous, ideal in Hollywood and look amazing with a straight cut blunt bang that reaches just below the brows and covers the forehead fully, thus adding certain softness to the chin area. This is necessary since your forehead is wider than your jawline.
Side-swept bangs are also ideal, particularly since they do the balancing act so well, as well as choppy styles that one can push to the side and add to the look thus. For a proper side-swept look, blow dry your hair going forward at first, lifting hair from the hairline for added volume, and then bend to the side with a big curling iron if you want a more professional look.
Face framing layers are also the route to take and will have you looking sweetly ladylike as you walk out of the salon.
Bangs for Square Face Shape
You aim to cut at the square dimensions of your face here, using a bang cut that softens the angular look and adds a touch of femininity to a sometimes more masculine jawline. Long, wispy angled bangs bring the eye away from the stronger set of the bones. You want to keep the eyes travelling on a horizontal path instead of a vertical, cutting the face in lines.
Blunt bangs should be avoided as they just serve to square off the face even more while the long wisps are the most flattering of the styles. You want to be showing off some of your forehead, while you can also pull off a full fringe so long as it is shortest in the middle and gradually gets longer to the sides.
Bangs for Triangular Face Shape
Narrow foreheads and larger, squarer jaws are also seen on women, defining this as the triangular face. When it comes to bangs for triangular faces, however, it’s actually rather run to experiment with as most styles will end up looking just as good.
Blunt bangs or side-swept styles look amazing here and you should be capitalizing on the proportions of your features. Balancing acts here should be easy enough!
Heart-shaped bangs are probably your best bet, no matter what your head looks like, whether your face is oval, triangular or square and no matter how unflattering you think other looks may be. This one is a gorgeous fringe that is longer on the sides and subtly curves with the brows.
The brows don’t show, however, as it’s a bit longer, falling closer to the eyes. What you’re going for is an extremely shallow drawn heart, longer in the middle and shortest at the high brow arch.

As we all know, wedding is one of the most anticipated and important events for any girl and the preparations for a wedding day can even start half a year before the special day. Every detail of the look of the bride should be considered scrupulously. Hairstyle is not an exception and picking the correct option with the makeup can be quite a troublesome job to accomplish for some. Thus, bridal hairstyles with bangs are just an option that you can consider and that’s what we are going to speak about right now, presenting some lovely wedding hairstyles with bangs that will be a great solution for your special looks!
When You Choose a Bridal Hairstyle with Bangs
If it’s been a long time that you’ve been styling a particular type of bangs, then you should know best and everything about how to style bangs well. You must know the tools that will be suitable for usage and all the rest of the details, too. Still, if you have decided to cut your bangs a day before the wedding, we would advise you to put it off. You can’t be sure about the results and they may, in fact, be not really pleasing. Besides, you may also risk spoiling your mood with unexpected surprises, which may occur while having this kind of cuts. Those women, who have passed through this occasion once, advise to try out all the possible variants beforehand and to use some photo examples for this.
The tricky parts increase more if you also have bangs and need to style them. The choice of the hairstyles actually depends on the style of the dress and the accessories. What you need to remember is that the hairstyle itself is an adornment for your looks. That’s why you shouldn’t overload your looks around the head, opting for balanced simplicity here and for all the rest. In particular, bridal hairstyles with bangs presuppose the absence of “architectural twists and curls” and the lavishly put flounces, flowers, or accessories either on the head or on the dress. “Mauvais ton” is the ideal solution for you.
As for the choice of the type of bangs, you should also know a couple of nuances here. For instance, you should know that petite ladies are not born for thick and straight bangs. Asymmetrical and translucent options are way more preferable. In addition, they may opt for sloping bangs, a part of which gets blended with the rest of the hair.
If you liked a particular photo of a bridal ‘do with bangs but you don’t feel like changing your haircut just for having that hairstyle you can look through variants in case of which the front framing hair can act as substitutes for bangs.
Bridal Hairstyles with Bangs and Veils
The desire to wear a veil on the wedding day is what every third bride has, especially if walking to the altar is also included in the wedding. In that case it’s necessary to pick this accessory very carefully for the successful outcomes. It should match both the dress and the hairstyle. In any case harmony is the most important thing to consider.
Thus, in case of opting for a long and voluminous veil you shouldn’t go for extremely extravagant experiments with your hair making such ‘dos, which will even compete the chic of the veil and will create especially significant difficulties when styling both. Minimalistic options are the most preferable styles for hair in this case, whereas in case of shorter veils you should, in fact, go for chic and luxurious hairstyles for accentuating it properly.
Talking about the hairstyles with bangs, we can point out the Greek inspired bridal hairstyles as one of the most popular ‘dos. Veils of different lengths and volume are compatible with these ‘dos. The versatility also refers to the dresses, still, opting for delicate lace patterns, pearls, and creamy overtones will be especially effective.
The classiest form of styling hair is making buns or knots. They may be located at various heights and positions like central, swept to the right, or the left. They look perfectly with wavy locks and for delicately straightened options. Any type of bangs can do here, too.
