Trendy long side bangs have face-framing features that go in a diagonal line across the forehead. They’re perfect for hiding larger foreheads and skin imperfections and are known to have a slimming effect.

The best hair types for longer side bangs are wavy to straight due to the ease of styling with these textures. Curly hair may need a bit more help and product to achieve the desired results.

According to hairstylist Arijana Arci of Louisville, KY, “If you’re more of a wash-and-go type of woman, longer side bangs won’t do you any good. These bangs have high upkeep and need daily styling.”

Arci recommends blow-drying when styling side bangs that are long. Blow-drying amps up bangs in an instant – giving it a relaxed, chic finish. With this, it creates an illusion of prominent cheekbones and well-defined jawline.

So before your next salon visit, check out these popular images of the best hairstyles with long side bangs for your next idea!`

Long hair might seem monotonous due to its similar appearance after any cut. Changing the hair style can provide variety. You can style your natural curls or straighten your hair.

They don’t take away too much weight, keeping the hair full and flowy.
