Tips to Consider Before Cutting Bangs in Your Long Hair

Bangs are a big commitment. They require more maintenance than the rest of your hair. Your bangs can show damage long before the rest of your hair. There is no ‘undo’ button, though they can be camouflaged.

Bangs, especially long haircuts with bangs are a dramatic, drastic change. So, here are a few things to consider before grabbing the shears or calling your hairstylist.

What Type of Bangs Do You Want?

Glowsly

There are a lot of different types of bangs. Not only are there varying degrees of length, but also thickness and texture. If you see bangs that you like, but are wondering if they will work on you, look for similar face shapes to yours, and similar hair texture.

Do you want a thick, heavy bang? Perhaps pixie bangs have caught your eye. Blunt bangs are popular, and side-swept bangs are eternally popular as well. But what about your hair type?

Is your hair fine or thick? There are plenty of long haircuts with bangs that will work for you; it is just a matter of visualizing before you make the cut. We’ll cover bangs by hair type and face shape in just a minute.

Are You Nervous? You Have Two Options!

Option 1: If you really want cute, perfect fringe across your forehead but are not ready to make the cut, work your way into it. Start with a side-swept bang. Bangs need constant maintenance, so talk with your stylist and gradually have your stylist change the shape.

Glowsly

Option 2: Do a test run. There are faux bangs that you can purchase that clip in the front of your hair that you can try. There are also some that come on a headband, but my favorite for those who want to try bangs with long hair is the high ponytail or a bun with bangs.

Here’s how to pull faux bangs off:

1. Smooth your hair into a high ponytail and secure it tightly with a hair tie.

2. Take a section of hair from the top of your ponytail and flip it forward to create your faux bangs.

3. Adjust the length of the bangs to look how you want them to and use bobby pins to secure it to create texture.).

Glowsly

4. For the most natural look, pin it close enough to the ponytail that it can be hidden when you wrap the ponytail or create the bun.

5. Lightly curl your bangs and fan them out a bit. Put a curl in the end of your ponytail if you intend to wear it out. If you want to wear a bun with faux bangs, fan your ponytail out, then wind and pin loosely to cover the bobby pins from step 4.

6. Accessorize! The easy choice is a headband, but a bow, flower or if you’re feeling daring, a fascinator is a great way to accessorize.

Do you normally part your hair? Which way? Your bangs will come from the front of your head, so they will follow the direction that you usually wear hair in.

If you part in the center or off to the side, then your hair will continue to do that. You will have to train yourself and your hair to lay the way you need it too.

Glowsly

On the plus side, the look will be much more different and cause an even bigger stir upon the big reveal. Get used to pulling your hair forward rather than brushing it off to the side if your bangs are not designed to be side swept.

The key to beautiful long hairstyles with bangs is keeping your fringe fresh. Don’t be afraid of a regular maintenance trim, especially if you love the length you are at.

, on average, a half an inch per month, and it will never be more apparent than with your bangs. Even if you intend to grow your bangs out, dusting, which is a teeny-tiny maintenance trim, will keep your bangs looking great by keeping and damage at bay.

Your can create better long hairstyles with bangs than a round brush and blow dryer. The flat iron smoothes and creates less frizz, and can be purchased in mini sizes for even the most pixie-styled bangs. When searching for a flat iron, look for one with good heat control options and ceramic plates.

Headbands are cute for styling long haircuts with bangs, but the best headbands are the silky and satin types. They usually come in great colors and patterns and hold in moisture better, which your bangs will need. They work double duty – they are cute during the day and a necessity at night.

Glowsly

• Use your headband to make certain your bangs are lying flat when you go to bed. A cowlick in your bangs in not the look.

• People who have a cowlick usually benefit from heavier bangs as well.

• Take extra care of your T-zone when you have bangs. It’s important for the health of your bangs and the health of your skin!

• Guide your hair in the direction you want it to go with a mini flat iron.

• Get used to using dry shampoo – it will be a quick help whenever your bangs tend to get too oily and being to misbehave.

How to Choose the Right Bangs for Your Face Shape

Choosing the right long haircut with bangs for you can be easy – just use your face shape and hair type to determine which bangs are best for you. So what looks will offer the best options for your face shape? Identify your face shape first.

Look in a mirror and consider your features. Take a marker if you need and trace the shape of your face, then look below and pick the best bang styles for your face.

Remember that bangs can be used to create an optical illusion on the shape of your face, and they can highlight your bone structure.

Best Bangs for Oval Face Shapes

Oval faces are the best faces for bangs. You can wear nearly any style. Soft, feather blunt bangs can create a more rounded and even face. This is one of the best face shapes for baby and pixie bangs as well.

Best Bangs for Square and Long Face Shapes

Long, layered bangs soften and balance facial feature. A-shaped bangs feature a broader spread across the bottom of the fringe to balance the face out. Bangs that hit right at the eyebrows are also very flattering.

Best Bangs for Heart Face Shapes

Glowsly

If you want to try a micro mini fringe, you can do so! Crescent-shaped bangs, especially long, wispy layered ones, are a fantastic long haircut with bangs that also grows out very well.

Best Bangs for Round Face Shapes

If you want to try a blunt-cut bang, go for a mini fringe. The space between the end of the fringe and the eyebrows makes the face look longer.

Side bangs create length in the face by utilizing angles, so they are great for round faces.

1. If you have a combination of face shapes, go with the look that matches your predominant features.

Glowsly

2. All face shapes look good with side-swept bangs, but the key to making it work best for your face is the length.

3. All face shapes can work a pin-up style rolled bang as well. If you want to experiment pre-cut, give these a shot.

---------------------------------------------------------------

How to Choose Your Bangs by Hair Type and Texture

You should take not only your face shape into account when choosing the right bangs for you, but also your hair texture and type.

Glowsly

Best Bangs for Thin or Fine Hair

Those with thinner or finer hair look best with bangs that are soft, feathered and at an eye-kissing length or longer.

Do not part your hair in the middle, as each side will look thinner. Keeping your bangs grouped together will create a fuller appearance. A solid, heavy fringe will also take away more body and fullness from the rest of your hair.

People with thicker hair can wear the blunt, heavy bang. Use a smoothing balm and a decent length to keep your bangs from looking puffy.

• Let your stylist cut your bangs with a razor, as you’ll have more styling options and less weight.

Glowsly

• Try gently layered, long side-swept bangs that can easily be merged into layers.

• Find a good smoothing serum or balm to keep your bangs from being taken over by frizz.

• Don’t cut heavy bangs too short. If you want short pixie or Lilith bangs, make them less heavy or else they will look puffy.

Best Bangs for Natural Curly Hair

• Cut your bangs dry or mostly dry – not soaking or dripping wet! If you cut them wet, they will look much different when they dry due to shrinkage.

Glowsly

• Consider the weight, don’t cut your bangs straight across. Try a piecey bang that pays attention to your ringlets and how they will fall together. Ringlets are locks of hair grouped together.

• Make certain your stylist knows how to work with hair that is your type of curly.

• Mist your bangs with a curl refresher between shampoos. If you are natural, try a leave-in conditioner spritz.

• Don’t be afraid to try shorter bangs, if you decide to straighten your hair, you will still have a whole new look.

• Don’t straighten your hair on high heat or you will damage your bangs.

Glowsly

Wavy hair can look effortlessly chic with a soft, wispy bang. Feathered ends look good on wispy hair that also keeps effortless movement.

Women with straight hair can wear nearly any style of fringe. Arched bangs and mini bangs, soft fringe and long fringe all work well.

It is important to keep bangs in straight hair from falling flat.

How to Cut Bangs in Long Hair on Your Own

Glowsly

You CAN cut your own bangs in long hair if you want to. You have to pay attention, be careful and don’t flinch, but you can do this! You need:

Start with clean, dry hair and use the comb to part a triangle shape out of the front for your bangs.

Find the starting point by putting the top of the triangle about two to two and a half inches back from the center of your forehead through your hair. From there, part your hair on either side in a downward, diagonal line. Pull the hair together to ensure that the triangle is balanced, and you are comfortable with the amount of hair that will be in your bangs.

Comb forward the hair you want in your bangs, clip it and comb back the rest of your long hair and put it in a ponytail.

The best and most accurate way to cut your bangs at home is to do so on dry hair. If you have a cowlick, use a flat iron first to make your hair lay how you want it to. If you insist on cutting your hair, spritz it with water to slightly dampen it, but do not put more water in it than that.

Glowsly

Determine the type of bang you want and proceed to the appropriate steps below.

Step 2: Cut Your Crescent, Straight or Blunt Bangs

• Measure your bangs out to your desirable length.

• For blunt bangs, place a piece of tape across your bangs in a straight line. Take your shears and cut below the tape.

Do not try to cut everything in one cut. Remove the tape and check your results. Your bangs should end in a sharp, straight fringe at your desired length.

Glowsly

• For crescent bangs, take the center section of your bangs and twist it once together. Let the ends hang in the length you want to use them to frame your face.

Cut the center section that you twisted together at the desired length. This will create a small arch that is higher in the center.

Release the center section and clean up the fringe. If you want the ends to blend into the edges, trim accordingly on an angle. If you want dramatic lengths on the ends, feather the center section first with small snips.

Clean up the framing edges based on the style you want.

• For straight bangs, hold your bangs and trim a straight line across in small, quarter-inch snips. If you like, use the tape trick. Feather the ends just a bit for a more natural look.

Glowsly

• For curly and wavy bangs, dry hair is going to give you a more accurate look right away, but you can dampen your hair if you need to. Work your curly hair into separate, larger sections by twisting them around your fingers.

Cut your fringe at the right length in each lock of hair, as evenly as you can to make them match. Feather and muss the bangs out with your fingers for a fuller look.

Step 1: Part your hair diagonally, on the opposite side where your bang will fall. Next, create a rectangle with the hair you want to use as a bang .

Step 2: Comb forward all the hair you want to use in your bangs, keeping the part intact. Pull all the rest of your hair back into a ponytail.

Step 3: Hold your bangs and twist them, holding the twisted section with the fingers of your non-dominant hand. Use your dominant hand to first comb the ends out.

Glowsly

Step 4: Use your shears to slowly make small cuts across your bangs. Remember that your hair is twisted once, so you are cutting the angle in what looks like the opposite side but is not.

Step 5: Comb your bangs down again, and then split them evenly in the middle. Cut upwards , creating the angle that you need for your side-swept bang.

Step 6: Repeat the process to the remaining side, keeping the angle that you began to create.

Note: Do not stretch your hair when you trim it, hold the length firmly but lightly. If you stretch your hair, your cut will be inaccurate. After you have cut your bangs, style them.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Bangs will grow out on their own, obviously, because your hair grows on average a half an inch per month. There is an art form to growing out your bangs. Jokingly speaking, growing out your bangs is all about the art of disguise.

Consider a headband braid to hide your bangs in, and keep them out of your face. There are a ton of braids that work beautifully to hide your bangs in, so test a few options out. Incorporating your bangs into a set of French or Dutch braids looks amazing, pulls your bangs out of your face and hides them well.

Try a slicked-back style, rock a headband or a barrette to pull back your bangs and still wear your long hair out or do a nice ‘tuck and roll’ to pull your bangs back.

Keep your bangs healthy! Test out a few different, deep parts to incorporate some of your longer hair in with your bangs and manipulate them better. Try parting your hair differently and see what is the best way to hide the in-between, potentially awkward length.

A side part is great to disguise your odd length bangs. Trim or dust them regularly so you do not lose length.

Glowsly

Keep your hair moisturized to prevent breakage and be as patient as you can through the process of growing out your bangs.

Lastly, do not forsake your accessories. Yes, scarves and headbands are obvious choices, but the is a gift for anyone trying to grow out their bangs.

How to Choose the Right Bangs for Your Face Shape

Choosing the right long haircut with bangs for you can be easy – just use your face shape and hair type to determine which bangs are best for you. So what looks will offer the best options for your face shape? Identify your face shape first.

Look in a mirror and consider your features. Take a marker if you need and trace the shape of your face, then look below and pick the best bang styles for your face.

Remember that bangs can be used to create an optical illusion on the shape of your face, and they can highlight your bone structure.

Best Bangs for Oval Face Shapes

Glowsly

Oval faces are the best faces for bangs. You can wear nearly any style. Soft, feather blunt bangs can create a more rounded and even face. This is one of the best face shapes for baby and pixie bangs as well.

Best Bangs for Square and Long Face Shapes

Long, layered bangs soften and balance facial feature. A-shaped bangs feature a broader spread across the bottom of the fringe to balance the face out. Bangs that hit right at the eyebrows are also very flattering.

Best Bangs for Heart Face Shapes

If you want to try a micro mini fringe, you can do so! Crescent-shaped bangs, especially long, wispy layered ones, are a fantastic long haircut with bangs that also grows out very well.

Best Bangs for Round Face Shapes

If you want to try a blunt-cut bang, go for a mini fringe. The space between the end of the fringe and the eyebrows makes the face look longer.

Side bangs create length in the face by utilizing angles, so they are great for round faces.

1. If you have a combination of face shapes, go with the look that matches your predominant features.

2. All face shapes look good with side-swept bangs, but the key to making it work best for your face is the length.

3. All face shapes can work a pin-up style rolled bang as well. If you want to experiment pre-cut, give these a shot.

How to Choose Your Bangs by Hair Type and Texture

You should take not only your face shape into account when choosing the right bangs for you, but also your hair texture and type.

Best Bangs for Thin or Fine Hair

Glowsly

Those with thinner or finer hair look best with bangs that are soft, feathered and at an eye-kissing length or longer.

Do not part your hair in the middle, as each side will look thinner. Keeping your bangs grouped together will create a fuller appearance. A solid, heavy fringe will also take away more body and fullness from the rest of your hair.

People with thicker hair can wear the blunt, heavy bang. Use a smoothing balm and a decent length to keep your bangs from looking puffy.

• Let your stylist cut your bangs with a razor, as you’ll have more styling options and less weight.

• Try gently layered, long side-swept bangs that can easily be merged into layers.

Glowsly

• Find a good smoothing serum or balm to keep your bangs from being taken over by frizz.

• Don’t cut heavy bangs too short. If you want short pixie or Lilith bangs, make them less heavy or else they will look puffy.

Best Bangs for Natural Curly Hair

• Cut your bangs dry or mostly dry – not soaking or dripping wet! If you cut them wet, they will look much different when they dry due to shrinkage.

• Consider the weight, don’t cut your bangs straight across. Try a piecey bang that pays attention to your ringlets and how they will fall together. Ringlets are locks of hair grouped together.

Glowsly

• Make certain your stylist knows how to work with hair that is your type of curly.

• Mist your bangs with a curl refresher between shampoos. If you are natural, try a leave-in conditioner spritz.

• Don’t be afraid to try shorter bangs, if you decide to straighten your hair, you will still have a whole new look.

• Don’t straighten your hair on high heat or you will damage your bangs.

Wavy hair can look effortlessly chic with a soft, wispy bang. Feathered ends look good on wispy hair that also keeps effortless movement.

Women with straight hair can wear nearly any style of fringe. Arched bangs and mini bangs, soft fringe and long fringe all work well.

It is important to keep bangs in straight hair from falling flat.

How to Cut Bangs in Long Hair on Your Own

You CAN cut your own bangs in long hair if you want to. You have to pay attention, be careful and don’t flinch, but you can do this! You need:

Glowsly

Start with clean, dry hair and use the comb to part a triangle shape out of the front for your bangs.

Find the starting point by putting the top of the triangle about two to two and a half inches back from the center of your forehead through your hair. From there, part your hair on either side in a downward, diagonal line. Pull the hair together to ensure that the triangle is balanced, and you are comfortable with the amount of hair that will be in your bangs.

Comb forward the hair you want in your bangs, clip it and comb back the rest of your long hair and put it in a ponytail.

The best and most accurate way to cut your bangs at home is to do so on dry hair. If you have a cowlick, use a flat iron first to make your hair lay how you want it to. If you insist on cutting your hair, spritz it with water to slightly dampen it, but do not put more water in it than that.

Determine the type of bang you want and proceed to the appropriate steps below.

Step 2: Cut Your Crescent, Straight or Blunt Bangs

• Measure your bangs out to your desirable length.

• For blunt bangs, place a piece of tape across your bangs in a straight line. Take your shears and cut below the tape.

Do not try to cut everything in one cut. Remove the tape and check your results. Your bangs should end in a sharp, straight fringe at your desired length.

• For crescent bangs, take the center section of your bangs and twist it once together. Let the ends hang in the length you want to use them to frame your face.

Glowsly

Cut the center section that you twisted together at the desired length. This will create a small arch that is higher in the center.

Release the center section and clean up the fringe. If you want the ends to blend into the edges, trim accordingly on an angle. If you want dramatic lengths on the ends, feather the center section first with small snips.

Clean up the framing edges based on the style you want.

• For straight bangs, hold your bangs and trim a straight line across in small, quarter-inch snips. If you like, use the tape trick. Feather the ends just a bit for a more natural look.

• For curly and wavy bangs, dry hair is going to give you a more accurate look right away, but you can dampen your hair if you need to. Work your curly hair into separate, larger sections by twisting them around your fingers.

Glowsly

Cut your fringe at the right length in each lock of hair, as evenly as you can to make them match. Feather and muss the bangs out with your fingers for a fuller look.

Step 1: Part your hair diagonally, on the opposite side where your bang will fall. Next, create a rectangle with the hair you want to use as a bang .

Step 2: Comb forward all the hair you want to use in your bangs, keeping the part intact. Pull all the rest of your hair back into a ponytail.

Step 3: Hold your bangs and twist them, holding the twisted section with the fingers of your non-dominant hand. Use your dominant hand to first comb the ends out.

Step 4: Use your shears to slowly make small cuts across your bangs. Remember that your hair is twisted once, so you are cutting the angle in what looks like the opposite side but is not.

Glowsly

Step 5: Comb your bangs down again, and then split them evenly in the middle. Cut upwards , creating the angle that you need for your side-swept bang.

Step 6: Repeat the process to the remaining side, keeping the angle that you began to create.

Note: Do not stretch your hair when you trim it, hold the length firmly but lightly. If you stretch your hair, your cut will be inaccurate. After you have cut your bangs, style them.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Bangs will grow out on their own, obviously, because your hair grows on average a half an inch per month. There is an art form to growing out your bangs. Jokingly speaking, growing out your bangs is all about the art of disguise.

Glowsly

Consider a headband braid to hide your bangs in, and keep them out of your face. There are a ton of braids that work beautifully to hide your bangs in, so test a few options out. Incorporating your bangs into a set of French or Dutch braids looks amazing, pulls your bangs out of your face and hides them well.

Try a slicked-back style, rock a headband or a barrette to pull back your bangs and still wear your long hair out or do a nice ‘tuck and roll’ to pull your bangs back.

Keep your bangs healthy! Test out a few different, deep parts to incorporate some of your longer hair in with your bangs and manipulate them better. Try parting your hair differently and see what is the best way to hide the in-between, potentially awkward length.

A side part is great to disguise your odd length bangs. Trim or dust them regularly so you do not lose length.

Keep your hair moisturized to prevent breakage and be as patient as you can through the process of growing out your bangs.
