We know; since you’ve committed to wearing your natural curls, you’ve probably been told that bangs are now forbidden to you. We call shenanigans on that! Just because you have curls doesn’t mean you can’t rock an awesome fringe! Having bangs does require a little more styling and regular maintance, but if you think you’re up to the task, here a few suggestions on some great styles to try!
Long layers with choppy fringe: If you have long curls that are more wave-like in texture, you could consider a cut with longer layers and a lighter fringe. Ask your stylist for bangs that come just below your eyebrows and get them notched for more movement. Style them by blow drying them straight with a comb or round brush.
Short fringe with long bob: Bobs are universally flattering, and you can take your bob to the next level by adding some short, choppy bangs. Ask your stylist for an angled forward bob (longer layers towards the back, shorter length in the back.) Get the choppy look by styling your bangs into pieces using a light hold styling wax or pomade.
Midlength curls with long bangs: This style is great for curlies with mid length curls. Pick a side to part your hair on, and ask your stylist to cut thicker, brow skimming bangs. This will give you the option of wearing them straight across (a la Zoe Deschanel) or to side part them as well.
Super short with side swept bangs: Whether you love keeping your curls short or are looking for a fresh start to get rid of some damage, this super short and adorable look is great. Keeping the bangs longer allows you to sweep them to the side, which softens the look and gives you some versatility in how you style your curls.
Shaggy chic: There’s a reason why this shaggy chic style has endured through the ages. Much like the bob, the shag looks great on a variety of types of curls. To get this updated look, ask your stylist to cut in some short, shaggy bangs to wear straight across your brow. Keeping them a little above the eyebrows allows your curls to define their own texture and the short layers throughout add volume and lift.
