The Different Kinds of Bangs

Bangs. They certainly aren't an easy thing to decide for many reasons. The first one being that you never know if bangs are going to look good on you unless you've worn them before. Then, if you decided to take the plunge, you have to figure out what kind of bangs are going to look best and that you want to wear on your head for weeks to come. Oh, bangs. They're so complex but absolutely amazing when done correctly. Here are the different kinds of bangs that are most popular within today's hair cuts.

Sleek Side Swept Bangs
This style of bangs has been trending for years now. I remember pulling off this look back in high school, and I still have them today. I would be a fool to tell you how long that is, but it has been a significant amount of time. Let's just put it that way. The bonus is that you can do so much with side swept bangs, and apparently, they'll never grow out of style. Fabulous, right? Ideally, this style works best with layered hair, but everything from a short pixie cut to long, luscious hair works.

Parted Bangs
It is important to not get confused because parted bangs isn't parted hair... It's parted bangs. So, you still have hair covering your forehead. The only difference is that it is 'parted' and wispy across it. I kind of explain parted bangs are full bangs, only choppier and, as mentioned, wispier.  You can also pin these back or to the side or wear them straight down your face if you really want.

Full Bangs
It wouldn't be fair for me to reference full bangs and then not mention them. Think back to your Hilary Duff on Disney days. Those are full bangs. They are thick and straight across at your eye brows and are, well, full! It takes a certain face and person to be able to pull this look off, but if you can, you're one hell of a hair diva and will steal the show every time you walk into a room.

Rounded Bangs
Rounded bangs take the full bangs and side swept bangs and combine them together. They are blunt and similar to the straight across the forehead look, only they have a very small curve that goes down the side of the face, offering a very symmetrical, layered look. This style is definitely for the bold and brave.

Wispy Bangs
Parted in any way that you want, wispy bangs essentially take the volume out of your bangs and makes them light and flexible. They can fall down over your forehead, or part to the side or even in the middle. They can also be clipped up, back, and to the side as well. Versatile at it's finest! Oh, and these bangs are easy to pull off for almost anyone.

So, if you are eager to 'switch things up', try a different bang style. These are only a few of the most popular styles.
