This is modern, feminine, and easy to style pixie cut with short bangs.

The graduated, rounded shape with the short chunky bangs is a flattering look for any face shape because of its extra volume.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If you have an active lifestyle who’s considering growing out a shorter cropped cut, is a perfect choice for an easy to manage hairstyle.

This cut is suitable for both curly or straighter hair. On curly hair, apply a curl cream and let it air dry naturally or diffuse dry. On straighter hair, tousle dry and use a pomade or paste for texture.

How would you describe this look?

It’s a very chic and classic stacked bob with short bangs that can be played up as a little edgy with some styling if you’d like.

Any advice for someone considering it?

You should be prepared to style. These short bangs are definitely not for someone who is low maintenance, and it is hard to achieve this look if you naturally have very coarse hair.

How would you describe this look?

A curly hair with short bangs with a shag bob haircut has a lot of versatility.

This haircut with short bangs could be worn straight and sleek, straight with a texturizing product, or curly and free. You can also add accessories like a headband or barrettes.

Any advice for someone considering it?

When considering a cut like this, the greatest thing to take into account is the curve of the hair and the neck. A graceful long neck is most flattering for this cut. Medium to fine textured hair with a loose to medium curl is the ideal hair type for this style.

Hairstylist @ The Hive Salon in Minneapolis, MN


How would you describe this look?

This edgy haircut with short bangs has lots of texture to keep in the curls.

The curls create so much movement and volume in the hair.

The short bangs because are so versatile and they can frame the face to bring out her cheekbones and draw attention to your beautiful eyes.

Any advice for someone considering it?

The choice of length can make a huge difference in how the overall hair will look. This is a great look if you have wavy hair or curls to your hair.

To style, all you need is a nice gel to set the waves and comb the bangs in place. You can also blow dry it into a wild voluminous style and use a paste or pomade to create texture. If you have straight hair, the second option of styling would be the best way to style this cut.

Casual Mirco Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Lauren Steele
Hairstylist @ Salon Haze in Regina, SK


How would you describe this look?

This is a casual hairstyle with short, micro bangs. The cut itself has a more blunt line to go with the baby bang, but with soft layering to take unnecessary weight out of the hair.

I call it casual editorial because its effortless look with the striking detail of a baby bang makes you want to take a double take.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Baby bangs are a lifestyle, not a trend. You are committed! I recommend visiting your stylist regularly to keep your fringe sharp.

Long Layers with Choppy Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Nicole White
Master Stylist @ David Alexander Salon in Annapolis, MD


How would you describe this look?

This long wavy hairstyle with short fringe is as sexy and flirty.

Strong short bangs can totally change your entire look. The added bonus is that it transforms a basic, boring topknot into a super chic and trendy style. Getting bangs that go with your face shape can be like an instant facelift!

Any advice for someone considering it?

You need to train your short bangs to lie properly. Some people’s hair is very cooperative and others may need to spend a little more time blow drying them into place. Using a light pomade and piecing the hair a bit can make for an edgier look while a mineral finishing spray (I like Next Day Hair by L’Oreal Professional) can keep them in place, but with a softer, matte finish.

Consider this haircut, considering visiting the salon every three to five weeks for a quick snip. As the bangs grow out, they can easily be shaped into a heavier side bang. Bangs can be customized for all face shapes, but suggest that women with round faces steer clear of the super short baby fringe trend and try something a bit longer and more cheekbone-grazing.

Hairstylist @ Under Your Hat Salon in San Francisco, CA


How would you describe this look?

This shag with a short fringe is amazing! This haircut lets you keep your girly length while still keeping it punk rock around the edges. I love the combination of short and long.

Any advice for someone considering it?

To style, all you need is a diffuser and some sea salt spray! You can keep it soft around the edges for a business-friendly look, or funk it up for the creative job interview.

By allowing your hairdresser to cut the fringe short and bits around your face, it’s like a hair contour that instantly brings the client’s eyes and cheekbones to perfection.

Senior Master Designer @ Mia Salon Spa in Montclair, CA


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

A shoulder length haircut with short bangs is edgy and moody.

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

To style, use a few pumps of Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother through the lengths. Diffuse or air dry, then touch up curls with a curling wand. Finish with Aveda Texture Tonic and finger comb though the curls.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

These short bangs hairstyles are ideal for women who want to stand out. It requires minimal styling and works best with fine to medium hair that is wavy or straight.

Q&A with style creator, Becky Cole
Hairdresser @ ESHK Hair in London, UK


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

This straight across blunt bob with short bangs make a statement with its sharp lines. It also has a vintage glam feel with the rounded short fringe. This is where the short fringe is rounded, and comes up higher at the temples.

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

For products, get a shine serum for condition and a hairspray to keep everything in place.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This haircut with shorter bangs is great for women t who want something different and a little edgy, but not totally out there.

Fine hair types do work best with this cut as the hair is smoother and easier to manage. Thick or curly hair would need a lot of work to maintain and would need straightening every day.

Shorter fringes can be done on most face shapes because the length can just be adjusted to suit.

Hair Artist @ Pomp and Proper Salon in Vancouver, BC


How would you describe this look?

This layered hair with short bangs is perfect for transition hair that you’re trying to grow out. Adding internal layering everywhere gives it a choppy texture.

Any advice for someone considering it?

There is this awesome product from L’Oreal Professionnel called Savage Panache. It’s a texturizing spray and my favorite product for giving airy texture. Put your fully dried hair upside down and spray Savage Panache globally. Put your head back and shake your hair and arrange however you like it to be. It will give the perfect airy texture that works great for an internal layered cut.

Hairstylist @ The Calico Beard and Mercantile in Kansas City, MO


How would you describe this look?

A textured shag with short wispy bangs cut with a straight razor creates the piecey bits and movement with the layers.

Any advice for someone considering it?

For products, a good texturizer like a sea salt spray to put in wet for lift and movement and a product for moisture to further piece the layers once dry like a hair balm.

This short bangs hairstyle is super low maintenance because they do not grow in heavy and can be pushed to the side once they get longer.

Hair Stylist @ Haus Salon in Minneapolis, MN


How would you describe this?

An ear-length bob with short bangs is similar to a French bob haircut. The hairstyle in the photo is a transition haircut that’s growing out a pixie. Don’t you love the baby bangs? They’re super easy to wear and Blowdry or air dry.

Make sure your bangs are thick enough, though, if you have cowlicks in the front. Use a mousse on wet hair to air dry or diffuse, especially if you have a natural wave. For a sleeker style, use a smoothing cream and Blowdry using a flat brush with bore bristles or paddle brush.

What’s your best advice?

Baby bangs open up the face, shows off the brows and eyes. It’s easy to maintain and wear.
