Short straight hair with bangs is a pixie or bob-length cut, which appears to be sleek and chic. It’s a chop that’s fun to wear and easy to style.
Hairstylist Amy Spaho of Whitefish Bay, WI assures us that this cut benefits any hair type.
She explains, “For fine hair, it creates a lot of volume and texture. For medium to coarse hair, it shortens the time for styling as you have less hair to work with.”
Short hair may be difficult to lay properly if there are a lot of very strong growth patterns on the head. Mainly, with pesky cowlicks. The trick is to know the right styling techniques using the right products, and voila—you’ll be ready for the day!
For styling tips and product recommendations, consult your trusted hairdresser.
When it comes to the fringe, Spaho suggests making it longer and heavier by the corners of the eyes. “This helps transition the bangs to the rest of the haircut better. Also, you’ll identify the difference between a good-looking haircut from a bad one,” Spaho states.
Bangs require commitment. You’ll need to visit the salon every 4-6 weeks for regular trims.
