What are curtain bangs?
As the name suggests, curtain bangs are soft tresses that fall on your forehead with a gap in the middle. They are messy and effortless, a look straight from a French fashion girl’s beauty book and are extremely wearable.
Modern curtains bangs were unofficially brought back by Dakota Johnson; who wore this haircut extensively in her smash hit film Fifty Shades of Grey. Latin beauty Camila Cabello has pretty much lived in this haircut for most of her flourishing solo career. Messy waves, curly shags, sleek blowouts, high ponytails… you name it and this style pair well with any hairstyle.
Curtain Bangs for straight hair
Give your sleek, straight hair some character with curtain bangs that you can pull off in so many styles. Play around with moving the fringe according to your face shape. Make sure you keep them short enough to categorise as bangs but long enough to pin back on active days.
Curtain bangs for wavy hair
We are loving the cropped curtain bangs on wavy haired girls. They look super cute and are also easy to grow out. They also don’t need many minutes of teasing and pulling to get it looking chic; go natural as much as you can!
Curtain bangs for curly hair
Finally, a style of bangs that curly-haired girls can rock without having the tendrils go out of control! You can train the bangs in front of your face to frame your cheekbones or tuck it back to reveal your features. Go wild with it!
