Embrace the Chicness of Curved Bangs This Season

Curved bangs are a return to ’90s fashion. This style of fringe features wispy, piecey strands that have tapered ends.

These bangs, as their name suggests, curve inward to create volume and frame the face. We asked hairstylists Andrew Fitzsimons & David Cottenblanche for more information about this season’s It-bangs. They also shared tips on how to pull them off.

Continue reading to learn everything you need to know about curved bangs from the experts.

What are Curved Bangs ?

Cotteblanche explained that curved bangs were a combination of blunt and curtain bangs.

Cotteblanche explained that the bangs are shorter at the front and start in the middle, then curving outwards to create a more defined, stronger look.

Fitzsimons said, “These types are bangs that mimic the curves of the face. The layers are longer on either side, and the center is shorter.”

For Whom They Are

Both stylists love this look on those with naturally straight hair.

Fitzsimons suggested that curved bangs can help shape hair and define the face.

How to style Curved Bangs

It’s easy to style curved bangs, and you can be creative.

Fitzsimons explained that bangs can be made to look straight, thick, wispy or voluminous.

Start by conditioning strands using a leave-in conditioner to protect them from hot tools. Use a 1.5 inch curling iron to bend your bangs towards your face. Hot rollers can be used, but they must remain in your hair for at least five minutes.

Cotteblanche suggests using a small amount of a glossing cream such as Fekkai Brilliant Glaze Multi-Tasker to add shine and lock in style all day.

What to ask Your Stylist

Fitzsimons recommends bringing in visuals to show your stylists if you want curved bangs. You will get the exact style you want and one that suits your hair. Kim Kardashian was cited as a celebrity for some inspiration.

It was amazing how she looked with her hair half up and curved bangs. It helped her shape her face.”

Cottenblanche also cited Taylor Swift as an example of the bang style. Sarah Hyland has a more edgy look and this style frames her face well.

Tell your stylist that you would like a more defined cut than a curtain-bang.
