Hair Cuts With Heavy Bangs

Bangs come in all different shapes and sizes. If you want to go for something that will really make you stand out, try a heavy bang. While heavy bangs are fun, they won't work with every hair cut. Find a few that will suit your bangs and leave your hair looking fab.

Blunt Bob

Some people say go big or go home. If you prescribe to that theory, try wearing your heavy bang with a blunt bob for a chic, modern and totally in-your-face look. Have your bob cut blunt and up the drama by sporting angled ends so your hair will be a little shorter in the back and gradually longer in the front.

Go Retro

Bangs these days generally fall a bit long -- think cuts that fall lower than the brow line. Get a little old-school by sporting a heavy bang that hits right above the eyebrow, paired with a blunt cut that falls about an inch or two past the shoulders.

Swept Bang, Short Cut

Try playing with lengths and pick a heavier-cut side-swept bang with a short, cropped look. Try yours with a super-short bob, or even go a little shorter. Short hair and longer bangs work especially well for women with square-shaped faces. A shorter cut emphasizes the cheekbones and takes attention away from the jawline.

Long Bangs, Long Hair

If you don't want to sport shorter, heavy bangs, try side-swept ones instead, and since your bangs are long, go ahead and pair them with a longer cut. Try one that falls a few inches past the shoulders, or rock super-long hair. Both look fantastic. Try curling your bangs under slightly and pairing them with curly hair too, or flat iron your look to keep it sleek and straight.
