Looking to change your hairstyle but don't really want to go overboard? Well, one of the easiest ways to jazz up your tresses is by adding a fringe. It's all about the curtain bangs this season, inspired by the thick fringe worn in the 60s by Brigitte Bardot, a famous style icon at the time.
These super cool bangs are obsession-worthy and are being flaunted by the who's-who of the fashion world.
Locks be Bangin'
Just the way they sound, curtain bangs are cut shorter at the centre and gradually gain length toward the sides. The result? A centre-split bang that opens up like a gorgeous pair of curtains. The benefit? This look opens up the facial features to be in the main line of focus, along with adding style to the haircut, which you might be bored of otherwise. Give your face a chance to be the centre of attraction and let this hair trend accentuate your eyes, cheekbones, jawline and more.
Who can Flaunt this Haircut?
Let's talk business as you scroll through your Instagram feed. You're likely to see almost everybody flaunting the curtain bangs, and while we firmly believe that it is an apt style anybody could try, we all know some haircuts pair better only with certain face shapes. Square and round faces are ideal to flaunt curtain bangs since this hair trend helps elongate the appearance of this face type.
Styling them Bangs!
Wispy and blunt bangs normally work with little to no styling. However, curtain bangs are almost like the high maintenance cousin of bangs. This hair trend is parted in the middle and will need to maintain the shape with the help of heat styling and corresponding products to provide extra bounce and body to the bangs. Style these bangs when wet. If dry, spritz some leave-in conditioner or hair serum on the curtain bangs, before using a round brush to blow-dry the bangs away from the face. A hair spray such as Wild Stylers Beach Waves spray by Tecni.ART adjusts the hair strands and keeps them in place. Infinium 4 by Tecni.ART is also a good anti-frizz spray.
