Bangs add glamour to your hair. With the right style of bangs, you can transform your look from workday fab to nighttime opulence. If you want to add bangs to your hair for more flair, think of what look you want to pull off. After all, there are many types of bangs to choose from.
Long hairstyles with bangs
If you want to look sleek and stylish, try the straight bangs which rest on your brows. Parted bangs can also make you look chic. They are similar to the straight bangs, yet it is styled with a gap on the center.
If you want to go for a sweet, innocent look, go for side-swept bangs. They can make you look effortlessly stylish.
For a funky look, try choppy bangs, which are styled with uneven cuts and layers. Wispy bangs can also give you an edgy look.
Before you try these stylish tresses reminiscent of Katie Holmes or Reese Witherspoon, there are several factors you need to take into consideration, such as your facial shape.
Straight bangs, which are uniform tresses that rest on the brow line, are best for people with big foreheads. This style makes your face look like it’s oval-shaped. Straight bangs can also soften strong facial features, such as an edgy jaw, sharp chin, or a prominent cheekbone. For a more dramatic look, ask your hairstylist to make the side bangs longer.
If you have a heart-shaped or round face, then the best style for you is side-swept bangs. Long, wispy bangs will also make your face look narrower. This asymmetric hairstyle will frame your face softly, so you won’t end up with a ‘puffy’ face. It will also add a beautiful contour to your face.
Women with square-shaped faces will benefit from side-swept bangs that can be as long as your jaw line. This style softens your strong facial features.

To make your bangs look impeccable, remember to style them while they are wet. Apply serum to your bangs. Use your fingers to hold on to the edges of your bangs as you blow dry them. Don’t dry your bangs completely. While they are still moist, style your bangs with a brush to give them the appropriate body and bounce.
Visit your hairstylist while you have dry hair. Hair has a tendency to look longer when wet and he might have the tendency to chop more hair than needed if you go to the salon with wet tresses.
