The mighty bangs made a come back several years ago, but appeared to fade in the fashion world. Now, bangs are back in a big way, but these styles aren't your childhood fringe. Bangs have been modernized to look sleek, sexy and a little bit fun. Here are four bang trends to mull over before your next hair appointment.
Micro Bangs (AKA: Baby Bangs)
Fashion has been looking back to the pinup era for a year or so now, but the hair world is getting there, too. Micro bangs are a big trend for 2016, and they are a great way to sass up a hairstyle. Micro bangs are bangs that end far above the eyebrow. They have to be worked with a lot to look good, but when done right, the look is sleek and stylish.
The Blunt And Brow Bangs
Sometimes call a mod bang, this cut is great for thicker hair. It hits just at or below the eyebrow and creates a mysterious and stylish look. Rounded at the edges, the blunt and brow bang is cut bluntly across the center, managing to just avoid the eyes. It's a cut that works for a lot of different face shapes, and can really play up a pair of beautiful eyes. A quick blow dry, a pass through with a straightening iron, and a little hairspray keep these bangs looking sleek.
Tousled And Textured Bangs
Tousled and textured bangs are great for ladies who are aiming for a beachy look, and who don't want to put a ton of effort into styling their bangs. Tousled is the name of the game here. These bangs generally graze the eyes, although they can be cut slightly shorter, too. The bangs are cut vertical to create a shaggier, more textured look. Run a touch of pomade through them and letting them fall where they may.
The Side Bangs
Perfect for the indecisive woman who wants a romantic look, the side swept bangs are what happen when you can't fully commit to bangs. The good news is they look great. These bangs sit longer, generally grazing the cheek or the jaw, and are swept to one side to ensure visibility. It's a soft and ultra-feminine look that works great whether your hair is straight, wavy or curly.
