So you've decided to get bangs. Say no more, because we're here to save you from the endless Pinterest scrolling. We've already listed styling ideas for mid-length hair and short hair, so now, it's the long-haired folks' turn to join the fringed club.
Ahead, we list 10 hairstyle ideas with bangs for long hair that will have you heading to the salon ASAP:
1. Shag cut with curtain bangs
The multitude of layers in shag cuts will give your long locks the rock 'n' roll makeover you've been looking for. It's also the perfect base for some choppy curtain bangs and more face-shaping details because it can never look overdone.
2. Textured layers with full wispy bangs
A long, layered cut with a wispy fringe is as much of a classic as it is reminiscent of your favorite K-drama stars. Next to being super flattering, the layers will cut some weight off your tresses so you don't have to part ways with your preferred length no matter the weather.
3. Soft layers with side bangs
Have prominent cheekbones or a round face? Side bangs are your best friend. A fringe that's parted in the middle and curved outwards, for example, will provide the illusion of sharper angles to your jawline and chin all while giving you some subtle sideways coverage.
4. Layered waves with micro bangs
The bluntness of micro bangs can be less daunting if you don't let it overshadow the rest of your hair. To give you an idea, you can add some layers and pair that with a K-style perm (or let your natural curls flow!) to have a chic combo that'll make you stand right out. It will grow out well, too, so even when your micro fringe gets longer, it will still suit your chop.
5. Blunt cut with choppy micro bangs
If you have a small face, these choppy micro bangs on Red Velvet's Seulgi gives you a shot at pulling off a fringe that won't drown you out. Plus, with bangs this chic, you can just opt for a simple blunt cut or subtle layers for the rest of your locks to complete the look.
6. Blunt cut with long bangs
Meanwhile, if forehead coverage is your main priority, BLACKPINK's Lisa is your best source of inspo. Her brow-length fringe pairs well with facial features such as a wide forehead, a petite chin, and a short jaw. Take note that bangs this long will look more flattering when the starting point is at the top of your head instead of at your hairline!
7. Soft layers with eye level side bangs
A common issue with untrimmed long hair is that it tends to cover your face instead of enhancing your features. To keep that from happening, ask your stylist to cut long side bangs along your temples plus a few face-framing layers. Not only will this add effortless shape to your tresses, it'll also give your hair a curtain-like look that's always flattering.
8. Layered cut with side-swept bangs
For bangs that barely feel like bangs, go for the side-swept kind. It's a versatile type of fringe that still allows you to part your hair in the center or go "bangs-free" since it easily blends in smoothly with the rest of your tresses.
9. One length cut with sheer side bangs
Cheek-grazing side bangs are your best bet for minimal coverage. You'll love this if you have a short forehead or a square-shaped face because it trims from the sides, bringing all the focus to the center of your mug. There's also the fact that it requires almost zero maintenance, which is always a plus!
10. Soft layers with long wispy bangs
To be honest, you can't have too many layers in your look as long as it's cut with your features in mind. For example, this Japanese-style trim works around the client's high hairline and sharp chin by adding long wispy bangs, face-framing layers at the sides, and more varieties of layers on the lengths of her hair. Gorgeous!
