Long hair with bangs

Before your next haircut, check out these pictures of long hair with bangs.  Adding bangs to long locks creates a trendy, flattering hairstyle. There are a variety of bangs you can choose from for your longer hair, including short bangs, curtain bangs, or straight-across bangs. While the length of long hair varies from culture to culture, adding bangs that cover your hairline or forehead is a style every woman should try once. So if you’re wondering if bangs look good with long hair, the answer is yes!

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.

Owner @ Bella Salon and Boutique in Chipley, FL

How would you describe this?

What’s your best advice?

A round brush is helpful in blow-drying them out. When considering face shape with this cut, it varies. The model in the photo has an oval face shape, and it complements it. If you have a round face shape, it will completely change the look of your face. Covering the forehead and framing the cheeks will give the appearance of a slimmer face.

Hairdresser / Makeup Artist / Owner @ Raven and Blonde in Milwaukee, WI

How would you describe this?

This is a shaggy long bob with curtain bangs. It allows for a lot of texture and movement, and the fringe adds a level of sexiness that looks touchable and lived-in.

What’s your best advice?

This lob with curtain bangs 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.

Hairstylist @ Obadiah Salon in Bellevue and Kirkland, WA

What’s your best advice?

Use 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.

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

The ideal woman for hair with bangs would be the one who is willing to style and maintain the length of their bangs.

Stylist @ Moxie for Hair in Portland, OR

How would you describe this?

This long hair with bangs is soft yet edgy. We love how the longer wispy bangs add a frame for the creamy and subtle silver color around the eyes. The bangs will also give you a nice frame for your face, especially if you wears your hair up often.

What’s your best advice?

If you’re considering bangs, take into account how often you visit the salon. If you are someone who goes a longer duration between haircuts, 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.

If you have longer hair, face-framing layers can help to blend bangs into a long layered haircut. Plus, bangs add movement and texture around the face. When considering which style of bangs would be best for you, always take into consideration the natural texture of your hair. Discuss these options with your stylist.

Swoop Bangs on Long Golden Brown Hair

Hairstylist & Licensed Educator @ Tinamarie Hair Salon in Indian Head Park, IL

How would you describe this?

This feathered long hair with bangs is the perfect solution for women wanting to add interest to long hairstyles. Short, swoopy bangs don’t always have to be on short hair.

Long-haired women tend to be attached to their length, so this makes them feel like they have a little more of a style.

What’s your best advice?

Be cautious if you have extremely curly hair. Commiting to a shorter bang like this can be high maintenance, so be ready to use a round brush and flat iron when styling. Women with a larger forehead are great candidates for a swoop bang like this because it hides a lot of headspaces. Style your long hair with shorter side bangs with a root lifter, and then round brush the bangs to give the swooping effect. Bangs always give a style to any type of haircut.

What’s your best advice?

Use a flat brush for pushing the fringe back and forth to increase movement, as well as a dry texture spray. Try Davines Dry Texture Spray to help lift those layers and add some ooopmf to the hair.
