Adding a fringe to long hair is a quick and easy way to completely change the vibe of your hairstyle without sacrificing the length.

Here are some photos of this year’s most popular hairstyles for long hair with bangs!
Tips for how to style long hair with bangs
Start by blow-drying your bangs about halfway dry to get them going in the right direction, letting whatever natural texture you have taken over. Do this by focusing the blow dryer at the roots pointing the airflow forward into your face while pulling the hair side to side, repeating until the roots are dry, and you’ve controlled or at least softened the cowlicks that almost everyone has around their hairline.
For day two bangs, use a dry shampoo to spray in at the roots to help soak up oils and refresh the fullness. One of my cheap and easy favorites is called Psst! and can be found at most beauty supply stores or drugstores for under $10. R+Co has a great dry shampoo styling paste called Badlands that soaks up oils and helps to hold everything in place at the same time. You can also tie the rest of your hair up and shampoo just your bangs in the morning if they’re super greasy, but you don’t need to wash the rest of your hair yet.
