37 Best Examples of Long Hair With Bangs

Long hair with bangs

Long hair with bangs is a type of haircut women wear to show off their longs locks and fringe. Adding bangs to long hair is a great way to improve your hairstyle and makes managing your hair easier. Bangs are a great way to hide your forehead and cover up your hairline that long hair doesn’t always offer.

Adding a fringe to long hair is a quick and easy way to completely change the vibe of your hairstyle without sacrificing the length. Long locks can be amazingly beautiful, but oh-so-boring if you don’t ever do anything with it. It’s time to mix things up just a bit by adding bangs! 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.

Long Blonde Hair with Bangs and Short Layers

Q&A with style creator, Brit Wright
Owner @ Bella Salon and Boutique in Chipley, FL

How would you describe this look?

This long hairstyle with bangs is natural and soft and on-trend. The color and cut are done to blend and not look choppy. It falls naturally around the frame of the face. The curls are a messy effortless look. It can be worn dressed up or more casual. My favorite thing about this long blonde hair with bangs is how well it goes with any style I am trying to achieve.

Any advice for someone considering it?

When considering long hairstyles with bangs, you need to be sure this is something they want to do. Bangs are a lot of work and a big commitment. You always want to start longer and go shorter. A round brush is helpful is blow drying them out. When considering face shape with this cut, it varies. She has an oval face shape, and it complements it. While another client of mine has a round face shape, and it completely changed the look of her face. Covering the forehead and framing the cheeks to give the appearance of a slimmer face.

Light Brown to Golden Blonde Ombre with Fringe

Q&A with style creator, Magdalena
Artist / Advanced Cosmetologist / Independent Contractor @ Connyx Salon and Spa in Akron, OH


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

I would describe this look as fearless boho, yet urban chic. This is a perfect summer hair color blend of natural root to light honey hues. My favorite thing about this look is how it transforms her fine yet dense natural blonde hair into a style that’s versatile and low maintenance.

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

The main products I would recommend to recreate this look are Thermafuse Dry Oil as a detangler/heat protectant/blowdry prep, and Thermafuse Uphold Hairspray as finishing spray and heat protector/detailer for the ends when using a flat iron. And finally, Design.Me Puff Me texture powder as a finisher to give that hair some extra volume and texture.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This particular hairstyle works well with any hair type as long as the attention in dry detail cutting is there. This wispy haircut is ideal for long face shapes. The fringe will shorten the length of the face and soften strong cheekbones. The gradation of blonde just gracing cheekbones adds a balanced structure to a slender jaw.

Shaggy Long Bob with Curtain Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Lauren Doss
Hairdresser / Makeup Artist / Owner @ Raven and Blonde in Milwaukee, WI


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look like a shaggy long bob with curtain bangs.

I love that it allows for a lot of texture and movement, and the fringe adds a level of sexiness that looks touchable and lived-in.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This is one of my favorite looks because it can be styled with very minimal effort. It’s still long enough to be put up, but not so long that it will drag you down.

For the fringe, use your bone structure as your guide! Do you have great cheekbones? Then keep the fringe right at the cheekbones to show them off. Hate your eyebrows? Leave the fringe a little longer and hide them. Love your eye color? Keep your fringe just above your eyes, then start angling them down toward your face at the outer corner of your eyes so your eyes will be the first thing people see.

Long Straight Hair with Blunt Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Manon
Stylist @ Atelier Hair in Remuera, Auckland


How would you describe this look?

The best part of this sleek and straight cut is the blunt bangs! This long straight hair is all about the bangs and the golden blonde hue it radiates.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Hair type and unruly growth patterns play a significant role in getting bangs to sit well, so be mindful of these, as they will require more styling more often to get the look and keep it this way. Any type of bangs will require some sort of styling each day, i.e. blow drying, flat ironing. A blunt fringe can change your look dramatically, so take your face shape into account.

If you have a high forehead, strong, blunt fringe could work, but if you have quite small features, you might want to think about doing a textured/sweepy fringe, which still changes your look, but you won’t get lost behind your bangs!

An Easy Hairstyle with a Heavy Fringe

Q&A with style creator, Scott Bignell
Hairstylist & Colorist @ Salon Panache in Montreal, QC


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look like a long bob with a long, heavy fringe and blended highlights. I like how a heavier bang and a bit of color can add some drama to a very simple look.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Depending on the hair texture, the bangs will most likely require some styling and product with a little bit of hold.

Even with styling, the bangs will likely fall into the face sometimes. Because they may not reach a simple ponytail, pins or clips may be required when tying up the hair.

Depending on the length, a longer bang will often highlight the cheekbone or mouth area, so it may not be ideal for people with prominent cheekbones or chins. A long bang also shortens the face and may not be flattering on rounder face shapes.

A longer bang will be easier to grow out than short bangs. Bangs are the perfect way to experiment with face-framing. Special attention should be paid to cowlicks, which may limit the way the bangs can be styled and worn.

Long Back Hair with Wispy Bangs

Instagram @stylebymebella

Q&A with style creator, Michelle Mayer
Hairstylist @ Obadiah Salon in Bellevue and Kirkland, WA


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

I would call this an effortless style that’s a fun way to change up your usual haircut. My favorite thing about it is the soft feminine pieces around the face. Most bangs also draw attention to people’s eyes, and they are a fun way of creating a focal point when looking at someone.

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

I like using Oribe’s Foundation Mist because it wets the bangs so you can style them with a heat protectant, which also has a subtle hold to it. Another bonus to this product is it has protein in it, so it’s really helpful for fine or brittle hair to reinforce the strength of the hair. It is perfect for bangs of any texture.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

Bangs are extremely versatile. They don’t always need to be straight across, and most can wear bangs of varying degrees. If someone has major cowlicks in their hairline and isn’t wanting any type of maintenance, bangs might not be for them. The texture shouldn’t be feared with bangs either; sometimes, adding bangs on someone who has curly hair can give it a really fun shape.

The type of client would be one who is willing to style and maintain their bangs and the length of their bangs.

Layered Long Brunette Hair with Straight Bangs

Layered Long Black Hair with Straight Bangs
Instagram @hair_wick

Q&A with style creator, Torrie Armstrong
Stylist @ Self Salon Bushwick in Brooklyn, NY


How would you describe this look?

We did a rich, deep brown glaze for the color on long soft layers with short straight across bangs.

For this long black hair with bangs, I love layered long hair and will never get tired of classic long layered haircuts with bangs, even if I could do it in my sleep. It’s flattering on almost everyone and is usually low maintenance. My favorite part is the straight bangs because they add the illusion of volume to the top of the hair and are a great way to revamp your style without having to chop all of your hair off.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I always say that it is best to work with your tresses rather than against it. If your hair is wavy, let your bangs have a little bend in them. If it’s super curly, rock the curly bangs! There are no rules anymore about how bangs should look, and that makes me so happy.

Platinum Blonde Tapered Bangs

Instagram @kaitlinatmoxie

Q&A with style creator, Kaitlin Nelms
Stylist @ Moxie for Hair in Portland, OR


How would you describe this look?

This long hair with bangs as soft yet edgy. I love how the longer wispy bangs add a frame for the creamy and subtle silver color around her bright eyes. Her bangs will also give her a nice frame for her face, especially because she wears her hair up often. This keeps her style looking polished and interesting.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Some advice I would offer to clients considering bangs is to take into account how often you visit the salon. If you are someone who goes a longer duration between haircuts, I will opt for a fringe that will grow out easier, often something with a softer texture. Bang trims in-between haircuts also help to keep the whole style looking fresh and intentional.

When a client has longer hair, face-framing layers can help to blend bangs into a long layered haircut and add movement and texture around the face. When considering which style of bangs would be best for a client, I always take into consideration the natural texture of their hair.

Swoop Bangs on Long Golden Brown Hair

Swoop Bangs
Instagram @tinamarie_hair

Q&A with style creator, Tinamarie Possidoni
Hairstylist & Licensed Educator @ Tinamarie Hair Salon in Indian Head Park, IL


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this feathered long hair with bangs as being the perfect solution for someone who wants to add interest to long hairstyles. Short, swoopy bangs don’t always have to be on short hair.

I love giving my clients a sassy edge. This is my favorite way to do so without having them lose length. Long-haired women tend to be attached to their length, so this makes them feel like they have a little more of a style.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I don’t like encouraging anyone with extremely curly hair to commit to a shorter bang like this unless they are committed to round brushing and flat ironing it. Someone with a larger forehead is a great candidate for a swoop bang like this because it hides a lot of headspaces. I like styling long hair with shorter side bangs with a root lifter, and then round brushing the bangs to give the swooping effect. Bangs always give a style to any type of haircut. It also looks great on a sassy ponytail, which I am a huge fan of.

Modern Spiky, Short Bangs with Long Hair

Q&A with style creator, Meghan Laura Harrington
Hairstylist in Los Angeles, CA


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

I would describe this look as modern and versatile. My favorite thing about this fringe is how soft and piecey it is and how easily that grows into a side-swept fringe.

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

One of my favorite products for this look is true grip texturizing powder by LOréal Professional for matte texture and control.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I think any face shape can support this look so long as the client wears it with confidence. The great thing about fringes is how fast they grow. Don’t be afraid to go a little shorter than you think. They’ll grow out in two weeks!

Long, Light Brown Hair with Soft Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Kylie Wiggins
Hairstylist @ Mode Salon Gainesville in Gainesville, FL


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

I would describe this look as very soft, but with a unique twist. My favorite thing about hairstyles for long hair with bangs look is that typically, when someone asks for bangs, and they have lengthy hair, they are asking for the very familiar long, face-framing layers that swoop away from the face.

After consulting with my guest, I was super stoked to hear that she wanted to try hair with full but soft bangs. As much as I enjoy classic styles, I feel that shaking it up is very on-trend and fun for me as the stylist as well.

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

To create this look, I prepped the hair with Davines Dede Hair Mist. This is a great, all-natural lightweight product that relies on red celery extract to detangle hair that loves to tangle up. It also leaves the hair moisturized and ready to take on the day.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this cut for anyone looking for low to medium maintenance hair. It requires a bang trim every four weeks and a full haircut every 8-12 weeks. As far as density, this cut works best for people that have medium to thick hair. If you’re looking for an easy but stylish look, this one is for you.

Copper Shag with Heavy Bangs for Thick Hair

Q&A with style creator, Brittany Bradley
Designer @ Charles Penzone Grand Salon in Gahanna, OH


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

I would call this look the long shag. It’s all about keeping the length but creating lots of layers in the crown. These are what I call halo layers. These are great for clients that want to preserve length but want a little more than long layers. It’s also all about the heavy full bangs that are perfectly texturized to increase movement in the fringe area.

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

I recommend a flat brush for pushing the fringe back and forth to increase movement, as well as a dry texture spray. I love Davines Dry Texture Spray to help lift those layers and add some ooopmf to the hair. I also love Definition Mist by Davines because it is great to increase separation in the hair and allow the layers to stand out.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for any woman that wants a great style/cut but still craves low maintenance. All hair textures can wear this look; they just may need to modify with or without bangs depending on face shape or density.

Rock n’ Roll Long Wavy Hair with Thick Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Jackie Rodriguez
Stylist @ Fringe Salon in New York, NY


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

I describe this look as 70s-inspired, somewhere between bohemian and rock ‘n roll hair. It’s styled to look textured and effortless. My favorite part about it is the fringe or the bangs. These are textured and hit right above the brow, slightly longer at the sides and shorter in the middle. They frame the eyes and also grow out well. My salon offers complimentary bang trims between haircuts, so they stay looking fresh.

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

I recommend either a texturizing or salt spray on damp hair. For texture spray, I like my salon’s brand. It’s called Devoted from Fringe and Friends. For a salt spray, I like Salty Dog from Evo. The hair can be either blow-dried or air-dried. In either case, it makes the hair look like you came home from the beach piecey with lots of texture

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This looks works well for women over 50 with fine to medium hair types that are straight to wavy. There is a lot of layering in this haircut, so if the person had a high density of hair and wants it to feel lighter, this look would be great. These bangs look good on pretty much everyone but are especially flattering if someone is trying to cover a long forehead or a square forehead.

Medium-Long Hair with Tousled Bangs

If you adore bangs but don’t like how flat they can make your tresses look, try tousled bangs a boost in volume. This will add more personality to your mid-length hair.

Long Blonde Ombre with Long Side Bangs

High Contrast Melt with Blonde Bangs
Instagram @thehairetic

Q&A with style creator, Jen Ferguson
Hairstylist @ Lunatic Fringe Parleys Way in Salt Lake City, UT


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

I’d describe this look like a high contrast balayage or high contrast melt. I love that even though the blonde ends are so much brighter than the top, it still feels cohesive. Everything still blends seamlessly.

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

To create this look, I used Goldwell Silklift lightener with Brazilian Bond Builder to achieve her bright white ends while maintaining the integrity of her hair, and I used 5C and 6B by Colorly to create her beautiful, natural cool brown. I’d recommend washing with the shampoo and conditioner for Beautiful Color by Oribe to keep your hair moisturized and keep your color vibrant for longer. I also recommend styling with Serum Therapiste by Kérastase to keep your blonde ends strong and Imperial Blowout transformative styling cream by Oribe to repair damage while adding body, memory, and heat protection to your hair!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for someone who has an edgier style but doesn’t mind investing some time into caring for their hair. Those white ends can get brittle very easily, so at-home care and monthly deep conditioning treatments at the salon are a must! The color tones in this can look good on most medium to light complexion skin tones. You would only need to change up the tonality of the brown just a bit to complement dark skin tones. This kind of cut generally compliments rounder or heart-shaped faces. Still, most face shapes can pull it off regardless!

Wavy Long Hair with Baby Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Claudia Rodriguez
Hairdresser @ Coco a Gogo HairStudio in Nuevo Leon, Mexico


How would you describe this look?

This long hair with baby bangs is fresh and easy to wear. I love to make texture because it looks natural and gives movement to the hair.

I think my favorite thing for this look is the bang, looks great, and is so different from the old look of my client.

Any advice for someone considering it?

First, you need to talk with your client and considered her lifestyle, face shape, and all the things that she makes in her hair like daily hair care and hairstyling. It’s very important to check the density and the textured hair to create the fringe area for the final result to look more natural.

Long Layered Hair with Bangs

Instagram @melanie.s.stylist

This long layered hair with bangs creates a mullet shag hybrid. It has a short shattered fringe, complementing the shorter layers around the face. Having a long, thick length is an edge to pull off a cut like this, which features disconnected layers. Such a length is what keeps the fullness of the hair. For an extra polished result, style it with waves and apply a texturizing spray.

Feathered Bangs for Long, Thin Hair

These feathered bangs for long, thin hair are so flattering! It’s the type of long bangs that can accentuate both eyes and cheekbones. Having the bangs a little longer allows you not to have to worry as much about maintenance, too.

Wavy Bangs on Long Hair

Q&A with style creator, Madalena Perillo
Junior Stylist @ David J Witchell in Newtown, PA


How would you describe this look?

This look is effortless and soft. I love how the layers create some movement, and the bangs frame your face perfectly. It’s a great haircut for older women to give an illusion of lifted cheekbones.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I recommend a texture spray when styling this look, and it pairs perfectly with some beachy waves. The “undone” look is a great match for these bangs.

Any hair texture and type will work well with this cut, but curly-haired girls will have to put more effort into styling the bangs.

Long Hair with Side Bangs and Layers

Q&A with style creator, Sonja Connor
Stylist @ Cream Melbourne in Fitzroy, Victoria


How would you describe this look?

This is my interpretation of a modern “Beatnik” look with long, loose waves. In creating this long hair with side bangs, I wanted to focus on keeping something authentic from the era but with a look that has a modern twist. This look exudes both fun and elegance but with a touch of a hipster at the same time.

I love versatility, as there are so much movement and flexibility in the style and side bangs. It can be adapted in so many ways to suit any kind of hair texture, length, and color.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Enjoy the look! It is very non-committal, so it’s easy to grow out but can also be something that you can enhance and get more and more into the look. It can be done to suit each individual, and the use of color will completely change the look, depending on your needs.

Q&A with style creator, Sophie Kulyk
Executive Stylist @ Maxx Hair Studio in St Ives, Australia


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

I’d describe this look as if classic 70s flare and modern relaxed beachy waves had a baby. My favorite kinds of looks are relaxed and new with a reference from the past, in a completely wearable manner!

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

I used a cocktail of products for this look. I started with a sea salt spray (Beach waves Loreal) for some root lift and texture for the style, and I used the Pureology Perfect 4 Platinum spray for shine and to smooth out the hair.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

Regarding texture, this style is perfect for medium and thick hair. This style needs a bit of weight to it, so I’m afraid this isn’t for my fine-haired beauties. The fringe needs weight to it to have that mod/flare look and not that mom fringe look.

Side Bangs with Long Hair

Q&A with style creator, Ryan Pettitt
Top Stylist @ Coast Hairdressing in Bournemouth, Dorset


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

This is an evolved version of the original Jennifer Aniston front graduation that we all know and love.

We love this look because it’s timeless, it adds volume when down, and it gives a little something to frame the face when wearing hair up on those mornings when the alarm didn’t go off!

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

Product recommendations are very hair type dependent. This client has very thick and coarse hair that works well with Evo Easy Tiger, a coconut oil-infused straightening balm. For those with finer hair, I recommend Evo Root Canal and, most importantly, Evo Body Giving Juice to plump the hair up a bit.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

All face shapes, and hair types can wear this look. That’s the beauty of it! Just alter the length of the bang according to the face shape and hair thickness you are working with.

Golden Blonde Long Hair with Fringe

This golden blonde long hair with fringe screams cuteness! The style and cut work better on lengthy hair with a sleek, straight texture. Softer swept bangs or full-across bangs can make the haircut appear more feminine than it is. If this is the style you’re going for, be mindful of one thing. Women who want bangs need to be ready to style them daily. A fringe can make or break the entire vibe.

Professional Hairstylist @ Envy Salon and Spa in Sherman Oaks, CA


How would you describe this look?

This a long textured haircut with center bangs. It could pass for a long bob with a textured fringe that can be styled a couple of different ways.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This cut and style will look good on anyone because of the mid-length. It can be cut for thin or thicker hair, as well. This texture can be done on thick hair, but not so much on thin hair. I did not use any product in her hair other than a little bit of hairspray at the end. I simply gave her a little bit of a wave and finished it with hairspray!

Face Framing Bangs

Add face-framing bangs to soften your style and for a more modern finish. Sure, these bangs require upkeep, yet it’s still a mid-level maintenance style. If you opt for this chop, you must get regular bang trims to maintain your fringe. After all, bangs add freshness to the haircut without needing to commit to a whole new change.

Parted Bangs on Long Hair

Parted bangs on long hair is a nice statement piece to frame your face. Layers just around the face give more body and movement. It’s the ideal style if you want a layered style without thinning out your ends more. For a long, wavy mane like this, a bright copper shade suits the best to get a mermaid-like effect.

Boho Layers With Bangs

Get some boho layers with bangs for long hair to enjoy versatility and stylish results! Even as the fringe grows out, the cut is still boho and cute. Hair can be pulled off all the way down with messy waves or wear it up in a pony with some of the framings pulled out. With the right styling product, the volume is super easy to achieve.

Q&A with style creator, Nashla Renteria
Owner @ Artiste’ Hair Studio in Chula Vista, CA


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

This is why I call a fringe bang look. I love this look because it changes your face frame completely, and you get a different look without compromising the length of your hair.

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

I always recommend using a leave-in conditioner right after the shower. One of my favorites is It’s a 10 with Keratin. It is so hydrating and also protects from heat damage and helps with styling.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is awesome for someone ready for a change. This look works well for clients with higher hairlines and straight to wavy hair. I don’t recommend this look for clients with a tight curl.

Full Fringe with Long Layers

Here’s a full fringe with long layers to create such an elegant style. It’s a timeless cut that works on most hair types except for one. For ladies with a pesky cowlick at the hairline, pulling off full bangs can be troublesome. According to stylists, a heavy side fringe and long layers could still work, though.

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

I would describe these choppy bangs for long hair as soft yet edgy. My favorite thing about it is the piecey textured bangs that draw more attention to her beautiful freckles and eyes!

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

I recommend a heat protectant before using a curling iron, as well as a flexible hold hairspray. To create a more textured bang, I separated some pieces with a fiber paste!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for anyone who wants to add a little pizzazz to their style! Adding bangs to a haircut can change your whole look. This style is also great for anyone who wants a fresh look without putting too much effort into it.

Long Brown Hair with Bangs

Instagram @hilaryphillipshair

This long brown hair with bangs offers a sophisticated, retro-chic vibe! It’s styled with very subtle waves that focus on the edges to show off the layers of a long-length cut. Bangs are added to complement the face shape. Remember that the shape of your face determines the width of the bangs that will suit you. The thinner the face, the wider the bangs (temple to temple) should be. And if the face is fuller, the narrower the bangs (mid eyebrow to mid eyebrow) should be.

Longer Layers and Bangs

Instagram @hairbykarafina

Longer layers and bangs can do you right—no doubt! Layers are best to frame the face while bangs will help balance out your features. Many face shapes look great with bangs, so you only have to figure out the best way to cut your bangs to suit your face.

Q&A with style creator, Karafina Antonio
Hair Stylist @ High Horse Salon in Brooklyn, NY


How would you describe this?

Longer layers and bangs looks best with naturally wavy hair. Style it with a curling iron. It’s a classic long layered cut, and the shorter choppy bangs gives the hair personality.

What’s your best advice?

Longer layers with bangs is perfect for women with medium to thick hair. Natural waves are a plus, and can be achieved with a curling iron or wand.

The bangs also look great when all the hair is pulled back on those days you don’t feel like dealing with your hair. Textured bangs soften the style and the grow out is much easier than a super blunt fringe.

To make long hair bangs bouncier, the secret is blow drying. Side-swept bangs styled like this appear so casual yet elegant.

Long Curly Hair with Bangs

This long curly hair with bangs looks fun and playful. It’s a slight shaggy but not shabby. Those medium curls and bangs make a soft but perky appearance. When wearing this chop, you may want to keep its long length for added body and weight.

Q&A with style creator, Corrinn Dinan
Hairstylist and Educator @ Corrinn Dinan Hairdressing in New York, NY


How would you describe this?

This long curly hair with bangs is a layered hairstyle. The curly hair has long bangs that cascade down and frame the face. This cut features natural texture and curly bangs.

What’s your best advice?

Establish how long you want your bangs with your stylist. Long bangs eventually grow out and land on your face and sometimes your eyes. Curly haired girls also need to allow for shrinkage. Curly and kinky textures can be tricky. Talk with your stylist about your long bangs, layered hair, and overall curly texture.

Long Straight Hair with Light Bangs

Modern Long Straight Hair with Light Bangs
Instagram @hair_artifex

Q&A with style creator, Brooklynn Beatty
Stylist @ Lunatic Fringe Salon in Sugarhouse, UT


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

I would describe this look like a modern-day lazy chic. The cut is perfect for messy beach waves and straight hair alike. Long layers with light bangs are very suitable for the everyday “I woke up like this” look.

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

To recreate this effortless look, I recommend using FeatherBalm by Oribe. It is a lightweight oil that, when applied on damp hair, brings shine and vitality back into the hair! I also recommend using the Dry Texture Spray from Oribe to give it that beautiful pieceiness and sexy, tousled waves.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for the effortless woman who loves to throw their hair up to put keep some pieces in the front out. That paired with the bangs can make a girl look put together in a morning rush.
