Bangs and layers are an easy and beautiful way to update hair without saying goodbye to too much of that gorgeous length. Layering can make every hair type more manageable, cutting out only weight and split ends that keep hair from looking its best. Plus they add that coveted volume to every hairstyle plus attractive movement and bounce!
The only question left is what kind of bangs to get. Get inspired to update your look with this layered haircuts with bangs gallery!
There are 2 main kinds of bangs with endless variations in length, angle, and thickness. Blunt fringe, aka Zooey Deschanel bangs, are cut straight across the forehead. They can be worn heavy and full for ladies with thick hair or wispy to get the same effect for fine hair. Blunt bangs should land just above the eye brows and look sexy and mysterious when they are long enough to graze the eyelashes. Or show off your indie side with baby bangs that end in the center of the forehead.
Side swept bangs are the second main type of fringe. These angled locks are flattering for every face shape, especially round faces and high foreheads. The bangs can be cut with layers and angles or worn long and pulled across the forehead.
When you think about it, bangs are just the shortest layer in a layered hairstyle so have fun trying out different looks. Growing out bangs is easy when they are incorporated into layers of all lengths.
