How would you describe this?

This haircut with fringe bangs is a soft and effortless style. It uses an undercut to eliminate weight and keeps the fringe haircut longer and sweepy. The combination of short and long will leave you feeling sexy and unique.

What’s your best advice?

Women considering a tousled fringe should be prepared for some light styling. A quick blow dry and some texturing paste for lift and separation. The cut requires a light trim every 6 weeks to keep it fresh.

How would you describe this?

These fringe bangs are effortless and undone.

Hairstyles for bangs are versatile and easy to style. Blow dry it smooth for a more polished style, or let it air dry for a more lived-in vibe.

What’s your best advice?

Try ARROJO Wave Mist and ARROJO Dry Shampoo to give these bangs the perfect amount of texture without looking too messy. Wave Mist is perfect for spraying in and letting the hair air dry to enhance natural texture, or it is great to blow dry with to give the perfect amount of grit to the hair.

Lastly, finish with the dry shampoo as a dry texture spray. It also absorbs oil! It’s also totally clear so it won’t show up on the dark roots.

Fringe bangs are ideal for women looking for more volume and shape around their face. Bangs that don’t add more work to the styling process are great.

Q&A with style creator, Sam Lopez
Hairstylist @ Epic The Salon in Los Angeles, CA


How would you describe this?

This is a psychedelic and shaggy cut with fringe bangs, yet coiffed.

There are so many things to love about this cut. It’s edgy, gender neutral, and versatile.

What’s your best advice?

Be sure to find a stylist who is comfortable with this cut and enjoys doing it. The love has to be there! Keep in mind that this cut is best for carving out weight in thick-haired people, although it can add volume and movement to skinny-haired women.

Be sure to find products that enhance your natural texture so you can wash and go while still looking fab. For extra drama, blow the hair out with a round brush, diffuse to add body, or wrap your hair around a curling iron for a beachy wave look.

French Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Victoria Qualiana
Hairstylist @ Salon & Spa In The Tower in Clarence, NY


How would you describe this?

These are classic French fringe bangs.

It’s a classic French girl style with the blunt but textured fringe sweeping the eyebrow. If you’re considering this cut, you’ll need dry shampoo to give your fringe an airy texture while keeping excess oils out.

What’s your best advice?

This fringe is for women that want to change things up a bit and bring attention to their eyes. Have a round brush handy, but a naturally curly bang is in style too.

French women keep things as effortless as possible. As far as products go, get some dry shampoo for the next day to give more of an airy texture and to last throughout the day!

Rounded Bob with Wispy Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Elizabeth Salamanca
Hairstylist & Make-up Artist @ Watson & Bailey Hair in Livermore, CA


How would you describe this?

This haircut is a deconstructed bob with feathered fringe cut bangs. There is a strong foundational shape with unconventional and piecey layers to give it a lot of movement. This, along with the fringe, gives it an edgy and modern vibe!

What’s your best advice?

Try all Unite Hair products to style this bob with fringe. Get the 7 Seconds Leave-In, 7 Seconds Blowdry Creme, and Expanda Foam to blow dry. Along with a flat brush to get lift at the roots and to smooth the ends. Finish with a flat iron and use Glossing Spray and Tricky Spray to give shine and texture to the hair. If you have very thick hair, try using a styling cream to really piece out the ends and tame any unruly hair.

Haircuts for fringe bangs work best for women who want to add width to their face because the fringe gives it a square face shape. If you want to elongate your face, go for longer fringe that hits below the cheekbone and stay away from baby bangs.

Q&A with style creator, Jessica Dicesare
Stylist @ Scott Miller Salon in Rochester, NY


How would you describe this?

This is a modern shag with fringe bangs. The best part about the modern shag is that it has the edginess of a shag from the layers and fringe, but with more versatility because the layers start off longer and are blended more into the rest of the haircut.

What’s your best advice?

Rock your natural texture. This haircut is all about the movement of the layers and full fringe, so find products to enhance whatever your hair naturally does and use those products to show off all of the pieces the cut has to offer.

Heavy Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Marcus Waite
Stylist @ Ty Alexander Salon 2 in Newport Beach, CA


How would you describe this?

This cut is inspired by the bohemian 70s hairstyle with fringe bangs.

The best part about this style is the heavy fringe . If you have bangs you’re growing out of, ask for more fringe to fill in the recession areas and make a flow to the sides. It will leave the door open to go heavier on the fringe down the road.

What’s you best advice?

This first thing to consider with this cut is suitability, especially if you have an oval face shape. If you have wide cheekbones, ask for an adjustment where the weight of the fringe sits on your face. Hair type is an issue if you want to wear the fringe smooth. Fringe with texture is great, but this must be discussed with your stylist to see what’s appropriate for your face and what exact look you want.

A heavy fringe definitely isn’t for all women, but it looks amazing on the right woman.

Textured Blunt Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Eva Maliones
Assistant @ Trio Salon Chicago in Chicago, IL


How would you describe this?

This is a textured blunt fringe bang! It’s a pretty straightforward and classic bang. It was modernized by giving it a softer feel using a technique called point cutting.

The best part about it is that it still moves and flows, even with a blunt edge!

What’s your best advice?

Just go for it! This cut is super easy to style with a classic Denman brush, which has a bit of a curve around the edges to give it that beveled effect. Also use a styling cream or a little hairspray with a flexible hold to keep frizz down and hold the shape.

Fringe hairstyles are flattering on an oval, round, diamond or triangular shaped face. It definitely adds interest to a hairstyle whether it is short or long and can either be styled chic or edgy!

Large Side-Swept Fringe

Q&A with style creator, Marie Kelly Decayette
Hairstylist @ Privé Salon in Orlando, FL


How would you describe this?

This is a pixie cut with fringe bangs – always shorter on the sides and back with the front left longer. It’s a short, chic playful style for a woman with confidence. Plus, there’s softness of the shorter sides.

Get a tuckable length just behind the ear if need be.

What’s your best advice?

Have confidence.

Get shampoo and conditioner such as Oribe’s gold lust, Oribe’s straight away (wavy hair and control), and Oribe’s flash form (for volume and texture). For styling, try Babyliss pro blowdryer with Ibiza medium or large boar bristle brush to smooth it out.

Maintaining the shape is important. Hair grows faster than you think. Generally 4 to 6 weeks between haircuts.

Blunt Bob with Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Sophie Orr
Stylist & Art Direction @ Muse Hair & Beauty Salon in Vancouver, BC


How would you describe this?

This fringe bangs haircut is classy with a side of fun. It’s not too stuffy of a bob, as there’s enough texture (even though it’s one length and no layers). You can wear it tossed and shaken up or sleek and sophisticated. Adding a fringe adds character to the frontal area, but this cut can also be just as fun without a fringe as well.

What’s your best advice?

It’s fairly easy, takes no time to blow dry. If you want it to be completely fuss-free, fringe may not be for you. Fringes can require an extra five mins in the morning to control that “bedhead bangs” look. They’re always on display since it’s the main focal point of your hairstyle, so you no longer have the luxury of pulling all of your hair back and off of your face.

Cute Fringe Bangs for Short Hair

Q&A with style creator, Carly Anne Bigham
Hair & Makeup Artist @ Carly Bigham Hair Stylist in Rushville, IL


How would you describe this?

This fringe bangs cut is fun and simple. Also, the fringe style is super sassy! We’re digging the bangs, and we’re so glad they are coming back.

What’s your best advice?

Have a good leave-in, heat protectant, and a good hold texture spray to give the bangs and all around cut texture. If you have a square jawline, a long, layered fringe bang cut can help to soften and balance your features. If you have a round or oval face, go with textured long bangs.

If you’re down for something more daring, try medium bangs, which are longer than micro bangs but shouldn’t quite hit your eyebrows. There is also the above the eyebrow bangs. Those are definitely on the wild side. Oval and heart-shaped faces would pair well with blunt bangs.

Long Hair with Long Fringe Bangs

Q&A with style creator, Crystal Clem
Stylist @ Spa Isbell in New Orleans, LA


How would you describe this?

The best part about this cut is the “wispiness” and movement of the fringe bangs.

Cutting a fringe can be tricky because it’s easy to go short and blunt really quickly! The key is starting out a bit longer and slowly working your way up to the desired length. Softening the ends with the “point cutting technique” gives the added movement and wispiness.

Lastly, opt out of a fringe that has been cut outside the natural hairline. This results in a really harsh and unnatural style.

What’s your best advice?

A long fringe bang works especially well on women with longer faces, and/or larger foreheads. As far as styling products, dry shampoo is really helpful for keeping a fringe fresh and off of your forehead. If you have any wave or curl to your hair, be prepared to run a flat iron over your fringe, especially on humid days.

Short Textured Fringe Bangs

These short textured fringe bangs are ideal for fine to medium hair texture. Using a texturizer gives them a soft piece-y effect that suits a long, wavy, and textured cut. This cute short fringe offers more shape and fullness around the face.

Q&A with style creator, Erin Cheney
Hair Stylist @ Opal Hair Studio in Huntington Beach, CA


How would you describe this?

This is a modern, textured shag with baby/micro-textured fringe. Focus on the layering and fringe around the face and throughout the crown of the head. Doing so will debulk an extremely thick head of hair and create a cute, weightless, modern style.

What’s your best advice?

Make sure your stylist educates you on the different styling methods. Make sure you know what tools, products, and tips are needed to properly style your hair at home.

A few light wispy fringe bangs add softness to a chop. Because of its thin appearance, it’s pretty low maintenance. Taking care of the fringe is way easier if it’s not too big or thick. The fringe also gives a great style to any hairstyle, so give it a try!
