#14: Long Curtain Bangs for a Long Face

This short cut on long bangs is a modern take on a classic lock. This is a very low maintenance shape.

Adding a fringe gives it a little bit of a different appearance versus a traditional one length bob.

For styling, blow dry with a comb back-and-forth to eliminate any sort of growth direction and allow for that fringe to settle in. The idea is to keep the length of the fringe halfway to the perimeter length of the haircut.

Use a leave-in conditioner spray then cover with a nice, gritty mousse. This will allow for maximum air drying.

Short haircuts with long bangs like this one are definitely for that cool girl. It’s a little short, so it pushes the boundaries of femininity but still allows it to have that soft, wearable vibe.

#15: Short Wavy Hair with Extra Long Bangs

This wavy short cut with long bangs is a steeply angled bob. The texture on this haircut looks great when worn straight or wavy.

These long bangs with short hair is a real show-stopper, whether it’s worn with the perfect beachy wave or straight.

It’s fantastic for women who have tons of hair since you can do it with a full undercut. It removes bulk without compromising shape and makes it much easier and faster to style since there is less hair to deal with. The sharp angle is striking and looks great on girls with a longer neck. It has an edgy factor!

#17: Long Bangs for African American Hair

This shorter hair with longer bangs will give you the best of both worlds. The cool edge of the short side and tapered back while the longer side adds a touch of softness to the overall haircut. There are many layers to add volume and movement and create texture, giving different options for styling. The hairline at the back tapers into a V-shape at the nape. Short haircuts with longer bangs like this one are customizable for almost any face shape! The longer side gives a face-framing effect depending on its cut length.

I recommend asking your stylist what length best suits your face shape. With all the layers, you should plan to do some styling to maintain the look. A short haircut can be worn smooth and sleek, polished with a flat iron, using a light heat-protectant like Paul Mitchell’s Hot Off the Press, and finished with a drop of serum for shine. If you’re looking for a little more edge, I recommend using a little texture spray like Redken’s Wax Blast 10, or if you have a heavier texture, a paste-like Rewind 06.

Long Bangs for a Round Face

#18: Long Bangs for a Round Face

This short hair and long bangs are blunt tousled bob with softly rounded curtain bangs.

The bangs follow the outer shape of the eyebrows and connect to the sides in a subtle soft way, narrowing the sides of the face.

This short hair with longer fringe helps elongate the face as long as you keep enough overall length and the bangs’ shortest point in the middle right above the nose.

It’s important to keep the bangs soft by having shattered ends and not extremely blunt.

A short haircut with long bangs is a great option for women with square face shapes who wish to go short.

Bangs will require more of your time since they will need trimming sooner than the overall cut.

If you already have short straight hair, it would be extremely easy to style by blow-drying using the curvature of the head, and a flat bristled brush. Always use a heat protector, and you could add some volumizing mousse if needed.
