Layered haircuts with bangs are a great way to add body and texture to the hair. If you’re new to the world of bangs, you might opt for something more subtle like a set of wispy fringes. More daring girls will find a pixie or layered bangs that take center stage.
How to Style Haircuts with Bangs and Layers
The fun thing about bangs is you don’t have to have a certain length of hair to have bangs. Your extra long locks can play well with curtain bangs, while a shorter pixie can rock a side-swept dramatic look with ease. There’s an infinite number of ways to style layered haircuts with bangs.
If you’re dealing with baby bangs, try adding some choppy playfulness to the look. If you have a longer fringe, you can sweep it to the side, add waves, or curl to perfection. The possibilities are endless!
