Long hair with bangs haircuts have versatility. Kaler explains, “because of the seamless blend of the layers, it looks great whether you choose to air dry or blow-dry, and all it needs in terms of product is some extra moisture and a soft air-dry creme. The soft bangs can be easily tucked behind the ears or encouraged forward with a quick hit of the blowdryer.”
“Layers and face-framing bangs can be brought up higher if you want it to feel more shaggy, and more weight can also be removed if you prefer your ends to feel more textured while keeping everything blended and soft,” she adds.
These “beginner bangs” are great for women who want to try bangs with long hair, but want an easy grow out if they decide it’s not for them. They’re also great if someone has a stubborn cowlick and hasn’t mastered blowdrying it into place yet. Long layered cuts work best on a length that’s a good bit past the shoulders. It allows more space for the layers to sit and be more noticeable, especially if the layered bangs are long.

Light Bangs on Long-Length Hair
Hairstylist Anne Sweeney of Portland, OR created this long layered cut with bangs. “The full, textured fringe are paired nicely with casual beach waves. The front has face-framing layers that start in the fringe and taper down, creating a look of lots of texture without actually cutting tons of layers,” says Sweeney.
When cutting long hair bangs like these, keep them long and textured so they can be styled in many ways – full front, side, and part in the middle. For the rest of the cut, long layers provide movement throughout the hair but can be easily smoothed when worn straight.
A long layered cut with fringe is suitable for every face shape, and the full fringe adds that extra something! When considering bangs, though, be very sure you’re ready for them. A full fringe needs some training at first to lay properly on the forehead.
Styling is a low key for this look, explains Sweeney, “which is a plus for those with little time to get ready. These long layers with bangs are great because you can air dry and simply brush the bangs to where you want them to lay or lightly blow-dry to make the stay. Or you easily blow-dry and style quickly with minimal products.”
We love the bangs and face framing layers in this cut because they add a built-in style to any look. A simple ponytail or messy bun is elevated just by leaving the out fringe and a few pieces around the face.
Long Layering with Face Framing Bangs
Long layering with face-framing bangs is a haircut that offers a chic finish and a feminine vibe. The cut isn’t as heavily layered as the shag but inspired by a modest or tailored shag. It frames the face and accentuates the cheekbones. If your mane is straight or with a subtle texture, this wavy style becomes low-maintenance. This gem is great for women with thick hair that want to remove some weight, but don’t want to lose length.
“Long layers with face-framing bangs are effortless,” explains hairstylist Marissa Canaria of New York, NY. “The curtain bangs are just the cherry on top! When hair frames the face, it gives you lots of options for styling your hair.”
Women considering layered hairstyles for long hair should consult with their stylist first. How often you style your hair and how much you want to style it, comes into play. “Especially if you’re a ‘wake up and go’ girl,” she adds.
