23 Short Hair with Bangs Hairstyle Ideas (Photos Included)

Short hair with bangs

A wide variety of short hairstyles with bangs allows every lady to have a fresh look to flaunt each day. These are any ear to neck-length chop with a few strands cut across the forehead to frame and flatter the face.

If you’re hesitant in cutting some length from your locks, you must know that it looks great on every woman. Hairstylist Vicki Felan from Burleson, TX says to “go for it!” She adds, “Pick a style that will work best with your hair type and face shape.”

Bobs and pixie cuts are sometimes challenging to achieve, so stylists should be cautious.

Felan emphasizes, “It’s hard to get just right around the perimeter. The amount of bangs is often tricky to figure out. What works for one woman doesn’t always work for the next.”

Be ready to keep up with the maintenance and its demand for styling. Bangs have to be styled every day. Hairstyles for short hair aren’t the get-up-and-go type of trend.

During a consultation, tell your stylist how much time you’re willing to spend on your hair in the morning. Felan notes that some hair textures take more work to style each day.

“What’s important is to make you feel your best with your new haircut,” she states. “If you like a blow-and-go kind of style, give your stylist time to conceptualize the perfect cut for you.”

This is your sign to get a fresh chop. Find your favorites amongst these photos of the trendiest short hairstyles with bangs!

A short haircut with bangs is great for women with thin or thick hair. For women with fine hair, it creates more illusions of thickness, and long side-swept bangs add shape and style. A super short cut with side bangs for thick hair would need texturizing and weight taken off to create movement. Style with a straightening iron to create a bend in the hair for soft waves.

Choose a short ombre with straight bangs if you want a bob and have a round face. On a short haircut, the bangs falling over the forehead with the depth of the dark base adds height to the head, which visually elongates the face and adds a slimmer feel.

Timeless Short Bob and Bangs

Classic short bobs with bangs never go out of style. Not to mention a few loose curls can do wonders for a more formal style or night out with the girls. This timeless red short bob with bangs was created by master stylist Janelle of Vancouver, BC.

For women who don’t wear a far side part to offset any harshness, the right front bangs for the face shape add a nice softness to the overall style.

For styling, Janelle suggests you use a good styling cream/volumizer such as Bumble and Bumble Styling Cream and Kevin Murphy Anti.Gravity before blow drying on wash days, paired with a multi-purpose shine/anti-frizz spray.

“For women who could previously not wear short hair or bangs now benefit from flat irons and texturizing techniques,” she adds.

The rounder the face, the longer the front length should be to create a slimming silhouette (think a couple of inches below the chin). A side bang will definitely add to that effect. Smaller, “pointier” chins can pretty well pull off any style of bob and bangs, even as short as a 20s-style bob.

Long heavy bangs on short hair add a strong face-framing effect. They also work great for women with longer face shapes.
