Long bangs for long hair switch up your current style without losing inches of length. A fringe not only frames your face but also accentuates your best facial features, ladies!
Tinamarie Possidoni is a skilled stylist and educator from Indian Head Park, IL. notes that bangs are a great alternative to get a new look without giving your hair a complete overhaul. “Bangs give long hair a more on-trend and finished look,” she points out.
If you’re considering long bangs, long hair is the optimal length because longer bangs can easily blend with the hair.
Long fringe is a commitment. It requires attention to make your hair appear red carpet-worthy. If you’re willing to style them every day, a long cut with long bangs might work for you.
Salon maintenance is also essential to keep the long bangs and long hair looking fresh. Possidoni suggests getting trims and reshaping every 4-6 weeks.
Understand that not all women can wear long hairstyles with bangs. Possidoni explains, “Many factors come into play. These include face shape, hair texture, and hairline patterns like cowlicks and widows peaks.”
Don’t hesitate to ask your stylist some questions. “Would long bangs for long hair work for my face shape and hair texture? What kind of commitment and maintenance do the bangs require?”
A consultation can help you decide whether your desired fringe fits your lifestyle.
