Bangs have changed since elementary school. Today bangs are more popular than ever, and many celebrities are sporting them to create different looks. Adding bangs to any hairstyle can create a whole new look. Bangs can create an edgy, sassy or glamorous style. Many hairstyles with bangs can take a look to a whole new level.
Bangs are great because they can be used to soften and contour the face. They are typically easy to style. Just add a little product and blow dry. Many styles of bangs can be worn in more than one way. Bangs can be worn straight, brushed to the side, blown back or pinned. The right hairstyle with bangs can take your hair from daytime to evening, casual to formal. The best thing about bangs is that they can create a whole new look without restyling your entire hair.
Here are 2016’s top 10 bangs that will enhance your hairstyle.
1. Side Swept
One of the most popular style of bangs this year is the side sweep. This style compliments short and medium length hair but works very well with long layered hair. The bang angles gradually into the layers of the hair to create a soft, glamorous style.
The wispy bang is a common style that will not change your look too much. Wisps give hairstyles a softened look making you look younger. Wisps create a simple look that will not be over- dramatic.
The blunt bang is edgy and fun. Blunt cut bangs do not work on everyone or with any hairstyle, but if you have the right facial shape, the hard line is an exciting accent to hair. The bottom of the bang can always be point-cut to soften.
A choppy bang has been popular for a while and remains a great way to create a more exciting and sassy hairstyle. Choppy bangs work best with shorter haircuts. A multilayered pixie cut requires a choppy bang. A classic bob can be made more exciting with a choppy bang.
Like the choppy bang, the “messy” bang can be tweaked to create the look you want for the moment. Popular with younger girls, this style works well with longer hair, especially curly hair. Just grab the bang, apply product, scrunch and blow dry.
6. Lash Grazing
The lash-grazing cut works with many hairstyles, particularly a bob. The bang is cut to gently brush against the eyelashes. The result is a soft and sexy style. Enhance your eye makeup for an evening out and create a dramatic and glamorous appearance.
A curved or U-shaped bang is flattering with many hairstyles. The cut frames the sides of the face and blends into the sides of the hair. This cut softens a face for a young, vibrant style.
A more edgy style of bang that works well on younger women is the asymmetrical. For great results, it should be done right and should compliment the face. The asymmetrical bang will blend down into the hair.
9. Pin Up
Thee pin-up bang is an edgy style made popular with celebrities. If you are looking for something different, this is it. The bangs are dramatically rolled and sprayed to stay in place.
Bangs are necessary for a retro punk hairstyle. Whether hair is shaved at the sides or spiked, a dramatic bang will complete the edgy look.
Hairstyles with bangs are popular this year for good reason. Adding bangs is a great and easy solution to changing your hairstyle. With so many styles of bangs to choose from, you can create the perfect hairstyle.
