44 Hairstyles That’ll Make You Want Long Hair With Bangs

Long flowing hair can be amazingly beautiful, but oh-so-boring if you don’t ever do anything with it. It’s time to mix things up just a bit by adding bangs! Long hair with bangs is a quick and easy way to completely change the vibe of your hairstyle without sacrificing the length. Here are some looks to inspire you!

Modern Fringe

Q&A with style creator, Meghan Laura Harrington
Hairstylist in Los Angeles, CA

How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as modern and versatile. My favorite thing about this fringe is how soft and piecey it is and how easily that grows into a side swept fringe.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

One of my favorite products for this look is true grip texturizing powder by LOréal Professionel for matte texture and control.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I think any face shape can support this look so long as the client wears it with confidence. The great thing about fringes is how fast they grow. Don’t be afraid to go a little shorter than you think. They’ll grow out in two weeks!

Soft With a Twist

Q&A with style creator, Kylie Wiggins
Hairstylist @ Mode Salon Gainesville in Gainesville, FL


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as very soft, but with a unique twist. My favorite thing about this look is that typically when someone asks for bangs and they have long hair, they are asking for the very familiar long, face-framing layers that swoop away from the face.

After consulting with my guest, I was super stoked to hear that she wanted to try long hair with full but soft bangs. As much as I enjoy classic styles, I feel that shaking it up is very on trend, and fun for me as the stylist as well.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To create this look, I prepped the hair with Davines Dede Hair Mist. This is a great, all-natural lightweight product relies on red celery extract to detangle long hair that loves to tangle up. It also leaves the hair moisturized and ready to take on the day. I then began the styling process with “This is an Invisible Serum” by Davines. This product was blow dried into the bang area to give a small amount of hold as well as soft texture so that the bangs stayed in place. This is especially important for those who have a strong hair pattern at the hairline.

I then used Davines’ award winning “This is a Sea Salt Spray” which can be used on wet or dry hair, depending on your lifestyle. This product is awesome because instead of the typical salt sprays that dry out the hair and give you that heavy product feel, it leaves hair moisturized while still allowing the sea salt to create a textured beach-lover look.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this cut for anyone looking for low to medium maintenance hair. It requires a bang trim every four weeks and a full haircut every 8-12 weeks. As far as density, this cut works best on people that have medium to thick hair. If you’re looking for a easy but stylish look, this one is for you.

Boho Layers With Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Shannon Kennedy
Hairstylist @ FiveZero Boutique Salon in Greenwood, IN


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as boho layers with bangs for long hair. My favorite thing about it is that it is so versatile! It can be worn in a top knot for a more professional look, it can be in a low pony with some of the framing pulled out, or it can be worn straight or messy and still be so stylish!

Even as the bangs grow out, the look is still boho and cute!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Every style starts with a good shampoo. My favorite right now is New Wash from hairstory.com. It has zero detergents and leaves no build up on the hair, so volume is super easy to achieve. I typically use some sort of heat protection before blow drying and finish with my current favorite texture spray from Ecru. It gives the hair an undone look. I will sometimes finish with a flexible hold hairspray instead, and current favorite is Benefactor.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This is for any client that is committed to styling bangs every day! It can really be for anyone because the haircut is adjusted for the length, density and face shape, but the stylist will know how to navigate those waters to achieve the same look.

I love adding texture and movement around the face, even if it’s not a full on bang. Depending on lifestyle I may not always do a bang on just anyone. Not because it wouldn’t look good, but because it may be too high maintenance in this season of life for someone (think new moms).

Fringe Bang

Q&A with style creator, Nashla Renteria
Owner @ Artiste’ Hair Studio in Chula Vista, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is why I call a fringe bang look. I love this look because it changes your face frame completely and you get a totally different look without compromising the length of your hair.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I always recommend using a leave-in conditioner right after the shower. One of my favorites is It’s a 10 with Keratin. It is so hydrating and also protects from heat damage and helps with styling.

I don’t recommend using a round brush with the bangs. My advice is to blow them dry downwards using just your fingers, and then if needed pass the flat iron through to get rid of any frizz.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is awesome for someone who is ready for change. This look works well for clients with higher hairlines and straight to wavy hair. I definitely don’t recommend this look for clients with a tight curl.

This is a great look for people with wash and go hair because it will only take a few minutes to style the bang area and the rest can just flow.

Full Fringe with Long Layers

Full Fringe with Long Layers hairstyleInstagram @bobbypinsnicole

Q&A with style creator, Nicole Lemponen
Managing Cosmetologist @ Simplicity Studio in Madison, OH


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as timeless. A full fringe with long layers is something that never goes out of style. My favorite thing about it is that it is a style that feels strong and confident.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend Surface Bliss blow dry cream and a light spray of Surface Awaken hairspray. I applied the Bliss blow dry cream to damp hair and followed with a hairdryer and a paddle brush. I then finished with a flat iron and the Awaken hairspray to set the look. Styling is simple and very achievable by the guest.

Bliss is a lightweight cream that adds shine, softness, and volume while not weighing the hair down. The Awaken spray is a great lightweight hairspray that will not weigh the fringe down. If one needs a little more hold, try the Theory hairspray which offers a little more hold. Surface products are a great organic line that works and is safe for everyday life. I love them!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for just about everyone. It’s so classic that it fits all ages and hair types. The only guests that might have trouble are the ones with a pesky cowlick at the front forehead area of their hairline for the full fringe. They could still compromise with a heavy side fringe and long layers, depending on the location of the colic.

Soft Yet Edgy

Q&A with style creator, Ashley Barton
Hairstylist @ Hair Klaudt in Charlotte, NC


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as soft yet edgy. My favorite thing about it are the piecy textured bangs that draw more attention to her beautiful freckles and eyes!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend a heat protectant before using a curling iron, as well as a flexible hold hairspray. To create a more textured bang, I separated some pieces with a fiber paste!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for anyone who wants to add a little pizzazz to their style! Adding bangs to a haircut can change your whole look. This style is also great for anyone who wants a fresh look without putting too much effort in.

The Long Shag

Q&A with style creator, Brittany Bradley
Designer @ Charles Penzone Grand Salon in Gahanna, OH


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would call this look the long shag. It’s all about keeping the length but creating lots of layers in the crown. These are what I call halo layers. These are great for clients that want to preserve length but want a little more than long layers. It’s also all about the heavy full bang that is perfectly texturized to increase movement in the fringe area.

Honestly I love the cut, but I’m also obsessed about the color. This look is the perfect marriage of cut and color!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I definitely recommend a flat brush for pushing the fringe back and forth to increase movement, as well as a dry texture spray. I love Davines Dry Texture Spray to help lift those layers and add some ooopmf to the hair. I also love Definition Mist by Davines because it is great to increase separation in the hair and allow the layers to stand out.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for any woman that wants a great style/cut, but still craves low maintenance. All hair textures can wear this look, they just may need to modify with or without bangs depending on face shape or density.

Modern Day Lazy Chic

Q&A with style creator, Brooklynn Beatty
Stylist @ Lunatic Fringe Salon in Sugarhouse, UT


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as modern day lazy chic. The cut is perfect for messy beach waves and straight hair alike. Long layers are very suitable for the everyday “I woke up like this” look.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To recreate this effortless look, I recommend using FeatherBalm by Oribe. It is a lightweight oil that when applied on damp hair, brings shine and vitality back into the hair! I also recommend using the Dry Texture Spray from Oribe to give it that beautiful pieceiness and sexy, tousled waves.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for the effortless woman who loves to throw their hair up put keep some pieces in the front out. That paired with the bangs can make a girl look put together in a morning rush.

Effortless and Cool Layers

Effortless and Cool Layers hairstyleInstagram @hairdaaays

Q&A with style creator, Daisy Ontiveros
Hair Artist @ Ra_Loft Salon in Los Angeles, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as effortless and cool. It’s a layered look without being overwhelmed or worried that too much length was taken off. The layers are kept long, yet there is enough of them to provide movement.

My favorite part about it is that its perfect for someone who is just trying out bangs or for someone who is growing them out. You can part your long bangs any way to achieve different looks and they are completely versatile. Credit to the colorist @Natalie_raloft.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

My go-to product to achieve this look would be Shu Uemura Essence Absolue Oil. I apply it to the the hair wet before I blow dry, and finish it off with Shu Uemura Texture Wave Spray.

To recreate this look, blow dry the hair straight then heat style with a 1-inch curling iron using the wrap technique. Leave the ends out and pull each wave to loosen the curl and create more of a beachy style. Alternate wave direction for a more natural effect. If your fringe isn’t laying they way you want, I recommend a paste or pomade to help it stay in place.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This cut could work on any one of my clients and it can work on any texture or length. The underlying shape of the cut helps the hairstyle itself and adding clean lines to the layers helps the hair fall into place.

A long bang would be ideal for someone who isn’t ready for a full bang but still wants to experiment with idea of it. They are easy to pin away or push to side when you don’t want them on your face.

Tousled Waves & Sultry Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Sara Everitt
Manager @ Maurice Meade Whitfords in Perth, Australia


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is a sunkissed tousled wave with sultry bangs. My favou=rite thing about this styling is the bang and how it hits the cheekbone to add structure to the face. With a peek-a-boo long textured fringe, it can change the look of any haircut instantly without losing any length.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

At Maurice Meade, we only use the best quality products. I highly recommend using Kerastase. Depending on the condition of the hair, create a good base with Bain Chromatique Riche. This works as a lipgloss for the hair to create the high shine. For styling, I would use Kerastase L’Incroyable for long wear, hold and repositionable shape control.

Blow dry with a large round brush and finish with a wide Cloud 9 iron to create the big, voluminous waves. Brush out with a soft bristle brush and finish with L’Oreal Beach Waves to add that soft texture.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

A thicker hair type is ideal for this look, however it is not necessary. Finer hair can add internal shattered layers to create more fullness and texture.

Depending on the shape of the face, your stylist can adjust the shape of the fringe. For round faces, ask for a more curved and graphic bang as will make the face appear longer. For square faces, have the bang tapered more on the sides to add softness, leaving the heaviest piece on the sides. For heart shapes, being top heavy is best to have more of a slight side swoop as it balances the face shape out bring detail to the eye. Bangs can be for anyone!

Retro Chic

Retro Chic hairstyleInstagram @hairby_helene

Q&A with style creator, Helene G. Sheptin
Master Hairstylist @ Vicara Aveda Salon and Spa in El Segundo, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as retro chic. I love the drama of the bangs with the versatility of the length. It gives you maximum style with minimal effort.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Before blow drying, I applied a leave-in conditioner with heat styling protectant. Once the blow dry was complete, I used a texture cream to bring out the natural movement and add shine to the hair.

This hair can also be styled curly, with beach waves, braided, pulled into ponytail or wrapped into a chignon. The possibilities are endless!

The shape of your face determines the width of the bangs and the length can be modified depending on the thickness and texture of the hair. For example, the thinner the face the wider the bangs (temple to temple). The fuller the face the narrower the bangs (mid eyebrow to mid eyebrow).

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

The hair texture and thickness determines the length. The more texture and thicker the hair, the longer the length. The versatility and ease of this haircut make it a great choice for any lifestyle.

Long Layers and Bangs

Long Layers and Bangs hairstyleInstagram @_mclarehair

Q&A with style creator, Mary Clare Hamilton-Brennan
Hairstylist @ Fluid Hair Salon in Edmonton, AB, Canada


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is simple but makes such a strong impact. I love the richness of the color I used and how the long layers and bangs frame her face. She was MADE to have bangs!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To keep this color looking shiny and fresh, a color-safe shampoo is essential. Another great way to maintain colored hair is to avoid washing your hair with hot water and not washing it every day.

During a blowout, I always use “Grid” structural setting spray from R+Co. Anytime you’re going to be styling with heat, spray Grid onto the section of hair you’re working with. This product ensures your style will last as long as possible!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

Many face shapes can look great with bangs, but if you have a long face shape, bangs will really help balance out your features. Lifestyle-wise, this look is pretty laid back! The great thing about long layers and bangs is that if you don’t want to style your hair, you can always throw your hair up and let your bangs have center stage.

Sleek and Versatile Look

Q&A with style creator, Emma Geiger
Licensed Cosmetologist @ Intoto Salon by JUUT in Minneapolis, MN


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This haircut allows a sleek and versatile look that is able to preserve length while creating movement near the perimeter with longer layers. Adding in the longer side-swept fringe accentuates the cheekbones and gives the option to open up the face.

My favorite thing about this cut is that you can wear it smooth and straight or add some body with waves or curls without changing the shape of the hairstyle.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

For this look, I recommend using a volumizing spray near the roots to allow for a lift at the crown. During the blow dry, use a smoothing cream accompanied with a paddle brush will help control any wave in the hair. Finish off with a light hairspray for any flyaways and a spray on shine to illuminate.

The products I used for this look were Aveda’s Volumizing Tonic, Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Nourishing Crème, Aveda’s Air Control Hairspray and Aveda’s Brilliant Spray On Shine.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

The beautiful thing about this haircut and style is that it is very versatile for several types of clients. It works for those who prefer a “wash and go” look that can be air-dried with a little product in to either enhance natural wave or natural smoothness, or those who want to style with curls or a flat iron. It also works great for any upstyle from a distressed bun to an elegant updo.

Shag Bang

Q&A with style creator, Kevin Kempczynski
Hairstylist @ RP Salon and Spa in Palos Heights, IL


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

These are classic long layers with a throwback to a shag bang. We used a modern, believable color to modernize the look.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend a bodifying/volumizing spray blown into damp hair. Finish the look with soft waves from a 1 1/2-inch curling iron and your favorite texturizing aerosol for pieceyness and movement.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This is a style that suits all ages. It is perfect for anyone with length that is looking for a change with minimum maintenance. It is suitable for anyone with straight to wavy textures.

Edgy Sweetness

Q&A with style creator, Maggie Kime
Stylist in Davenport, IA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I think this look is a good balance of edge and sweetness. The bangs give my model a rather youthful look, but the short length of them and the shattered texture compared to her heavier lengths leave no doubt that she’s funky and unique.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Dry shampoo! Like many of my clients, she likes to go quite awhile between washes, so dry shampoo is vital for keeping her bangs looking clean. I like to use IGK’s Jet Lag because it freshens up her bangs and when sprayed throughout her lengths, it adds perfect texture. It also smells great and the packaging is cool!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look can really be adjusted for anyone with any style. This client is regularly in front of a camera, so we keep her hair long and versatile with fun bangs so she doesn’t get bored.

For someone who really wants to make a statement, I’d cut the bangs even shorter and blunt (perhaps with clippers!) with long, texturized length for a really fun style that I think we’ll see a lot of this season. For someone who wants to keep it more classic, a long bob with a heavy fringe is beautiful.

Rock n’ Roll Hair

Q&A with style creator, Jackie Rodriguez
Stylist @ Fringe Salon in New York, NY


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I describe this look as 70s-inspired, somewhere between bohemian and rock ‘n roll hair. It’s styled to look textured and effortless. My favorite part about it is the fringe or the bangs. These are textured and hit right above the brow, slightly longer at the sides and shorter in the middle. They frame the eyes and also grow out really well. My salon offers complimentary bang trims between haircuts so they stay looking fresh.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

I recommend either a texturizing or salt spray on damp hair. For texture spray, I like my salon’s brand. It’s called Devoted from Fringe and Friends. For a salt spray, I like Salty Dog from Evo. The hair can be either blow dried or air dried. In either case, it makes the hair look like you came home from the beach piecey with lots of texture

I finished with a Dry Texture Spray from Oribe. It’s one of my favorite products, but any kind of texture spray or even a spray dry shampoo would work. If a client is using dry shampoo as a finishing product, I usually warn them that it can look white on the hair sometimes, so it doesn’t use a lot.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This looks works well for fine to medium hair types that are straight to wavy. There is a lot of layering in this haircut, so if the person had a high density of hair and wants it to feel lighter, this look would be great. These bangs look good on pretty much everyone, but are especially flattering if someone is trying to cover a long forehead or a more square forehead.

It’s a pretty low-maintenance hairstyle, so it works well for people who don’t want to style their hair every day or like to wash-and-go. The person wearing this will probably need a bang trim before they need another haircut, which is an added bonus.

Low Maintenance Layers

Q&A with style creator, Anna Draganova
Hairstylist @ Jasko Schroeder Salon in Menlo Park, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is an effortless, low maintenance and easy to maintain hairstyle. It has long layers with a shorter bangs that are connected with beautiful face framing pieces.

My favorite thing about it is that it’s very non -ommitted hairstyle. All of the movement in the hair is very soft and changeable. With different tools and products, you can make it very versatile.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

In this particular look, I used Unite Elevate Mousse mostly at the root area to give it more volume and Moroccan Oil on the ends for shine and protection.

After blow drying the hair, I curled the front area using a curling iron to show off the shorter pieces that were framing the face beautifully.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

In my opinion, this hairstyle is suitable for any girl! She can be stylish or low maintenance. She can be an independent working woman or a stay at home mom.

I would, however, recommend this for a taller girl with larger face features and hair on the thinner side, because the long layers are still making your hair look long and full. The soft, rounder bangs and shorter layers around the face definitely soften an overall appearance and bring out the best quality in the hair.

Boho Chic

Q&A with style creator, Magdalena
Artist / Advanced Cosmetologist / Independent Contractor @ Connyx Salon and Spa in Akron, OH


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I would describe this look as fearless boho, yet urban chic. This is a perfect summer hair color blend of natural root to light honey hues. My favorite thing about this look is how it transforms her fine yet dense natural blonde hair into a style that’s versatile and low maintenance.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

The main products I would recommend to recreate this look are Thermafuse Dry Oil as a detangler/heat protectant/blowdry prep, and Thermafuse Uphold Hairspray as finishing spray and heat protector/detailer for the ends when using a flat iron. And finally, Design.Me Puff Me texture powder as a finisher to give that hair some extra volume and texture.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This particular hairstyle works well with any hair type as long as the attention in dry detail cutting is there. This wispy haircut is ideal for long face shapes. The fringe will shorten the length of the face and soften strong cheekbones. The gradation of blonde just gracing cheekbones adds balanced structure to a slender jaw.

High Contrast Melt

High Contrast Melt hairstyleInstagram @thehairetic

Q&A with style creator, Jen Ferguson
Hairstylist @ Lunatic Fringe Parleys Way in Salt Lake City, UT


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

I’d describe this look as a high contrast balayage or high contrast melt. I love that even though the blonde ends are so much brighter than the top, it still feels cohesive. Everything still blends together seamlessly.

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

To create this look, I used Goldwell Silklift lightener with Brazilian Bond Builder to achieve her bright white ends while maintaining the integrity of her hair, and I used 5C and 6B by Colorly to create her beautiful, natural cool brown. I’d recommend washing with the shampoo and conditioner for Beautiful Color by Oribe to keep your hair moisturized and keep your color vibrant for longer. I also recommend styling with Serum Therapiste by Kérastase to keep your blonde ends strong and Imperial Blowout transformative styling cream by Oribe to repair damage while adding body, memory and heat protection to your hair!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for someone who has an edgier style, but doesn’t mind investing some time into caring for their hair. Those white ends can get brittle very easily, so at-home care and monthly deep conditioning treatments at the salon are a must! The color tones in this can look good on most medium to light complexion skin tones (you would probably only need to change up the tonality of the brown just a bit to compliment dark skin tones), and this kind of cut generally compliments rounder or heart shaped faces, but most face shapes can pull it off regardless!

Dust It by Osis Schwartzkopf is a dry volumizing powder that creates volume, texture and grit. Be cautious though because a little goes a long way!

All face shapes can wear this type of style. For curly and wavy types, less is more when it comes to creating texture and volume with dry products as too much may cause frizz

5. Ravishing and Relaxed

This laid back look will have your fringe as the focus. It’s super casual and incredibly easy to create!

Laid Back Hairstyle with Fringe

How To Style:

  1. On naturally straight hair with minimal wave, apply a curl cream to wet hair. Use a diffuser to blow dry and create a bit of wave and texture.
  2. Use a round brush to smooth out your bangs.

This look is awesome if you have a lot of thick hair. A round face shape will be complemented by this look.

Tips:

If your color isn’t quite as bold as the hair seen in this picture, no problem! You can add a few clip-in extension pieces to create an edgier look without the commitment!

  4. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

This whole look works for anyone! If you have long hair that has longer layers, this is a must try for you. Longer, angled bangs are great for this style. A square face shape is complemented by this look.

  5. Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

  1. Begin with dry hair that’s parted down the middle. Straighten your bangs using a flat iron or round brush.
