A blunt bob is perfect for short for fine hair with curtain bangs. They look even more gorgeous on a brown balayage. Beachy waves and texture work together very well to bring out your natural wave.

Q&A with style creator, Angela Nix
Hair Stylist @ Panache Hair in Ugden, Utah

How would you describe this look?

This is a textured, asymmetrical, short hair with long fringe with a shaved undercut on one side.

This short haircut and long bangs has enough length to get creative with styling. You can still put a few wavy curls in or braid the bangs, but it has enough edge and funk that a quick blow-dry alone would give a show-stopping look.

What’s your best advice for it?

This women’s short hairstyle with long bangs is perfect for someone who doesn’t mind coming into the salon once every month and a half to get the cut shaped up but only needs a few minutes in the morning to look sassy and fabulous.

For products, use Lanza’s Molding Paste on wet hair to create extra volume and definition for this look. Then, finish with Color Proof’s Fiber Blast for added piecyness and texture and a nice, firm hairspray.

#12: Long Curtain Bangs for a Long Face

Q&A with style creator, Timothy Duenas
Barber / Stylist @ Nine Zero One Salon in Los Angeles, CA

How would you describe this look?

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.

What’s your best advice for it?

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.

#13: Short Wavy Hair with Extra Long Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Lindsay Jean
Master Hairstylist and Makeup Artist @ Shear Escape Salon And Spa in Saskatchewan, CA

How would you describe this look?

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

What’s your best advice for it?

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!

#15: Long Bangs for African American Hair

Q&A with style creator, Michelle Colon
Master Stylist/Color Specialist @ Sideburns & Stilettos The Barberlon in Jacksonville, FL

How would you describe this look?

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 lots of layers to add volume, movement, and create texture, giving different options for styling. The hairline at the back tapers into a V-shape at the nape.

What’s your best advice for it?

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 the length that it’s cut. I would 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.

This 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 finish 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.

#16: Long Bangs for a Round Face

Q&A with style creator, Veronica
Hair Stylist @ Be Rosie Salon in Claremont, CA

How would you describe this look?

This short hair and long bangs is blunt bob with softly rounded 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.

What’s your best advice for it?

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. Al

ways use a heat protector, and you could add some volumizing mousse if needed.
