A bob with curtain bangs is a combination of a bob paired with a fringe that parts in the middle are swept to the side. Parting the bangs like this makes it look like curtain windows pulled open, giving it the term curtain bangs. When you get a short hairstyle like a bob, adding a fringe frames the face, making it suitable for ladies of all ages with any face shape. This short-length cut is sure to enhance your facial features!

When getting a new haircut, especially with bangs, you must know how to maintain and style it.

Here’s a piece of advice from Australia-based stylist Matthew Jones about the trend. “Bangs will always require some kind of styling. Whether with a blow-dryer and round brush or a hot tong, they won’t sit well without effort,” he notes.

Jones recommends the Virtue Labs Refresh Dry Shampoo. He explains that “it soaks up excess oil, helps to hydrate the hair, and leaves hair feeling full again.”

“There’s one thing that people get wrong about this trend,” he adds, “it’s the balance in lengths between the bangs and the baseline of the bob. With a shorter cut, you’ll have less hair to play with the fringe without ruining the integrity of the bob.”
