Hairstyles with Bangs for Long and Medium Hair
Bangs have a way of accessorizing your hair. Whether you have long or medium length hair, you can make a difference to your hairstyle by adding bangs. Bangs can be of various types and is usually defined by the rest of the hairstyle or the texture of your hair and the position on the forehead. Bangs are good for those with wide forehead areas which bangs help to conceal. While blunt bangs or fringe bangs are more defined and sharp, side swept or parted bangs are softer and blend in with the rest of the hairstyle.
Here we see straight bangs paired with straight, sleek hair. The hair is worn in layers towards the ends and the edged are kept thinned, tapered and razor cut. Accordingly, the straight bangs fall straight on the forehead skimming the eyebrows.
You could have straight, long hair and flaunt them with parted bangs as seen here. The middle parting on the top of the hair gives way to bangs which part on the sides. This creates a softer look and is more flattering than just having straight hair fall to your shoulder with no difference in length on top.
Side swept bangs are the most feminine of all bangs; they can be long and wavy and pair well with curly long hair. As seen here, long, loose curls on the sides are paired with side swept bangs on top.
Another instance of layered, straight hair paired with a fringe on top. The blunt bangs or the fringe is a favorite and goes well with any hairstyle, whether straight or bobbed.
Thus, bangs can be of different types as seen here. We also have choppy bangs which are uneven at the edges as is characteristic of choppy haircuts; then again, asymmetric bangs are the key feature of edgy hairstyles. Long, sweeping bangs concealing the eyes are characteristic of emo hairstyles. Thus, bangs help to define and redefine hairstyles in many, interesting ways.
