Jagged bangs are super sexy and so on trend. Forget those thick, heavy straight-across bangs your mom gave you as a kid and say hello to the new generation of choppy, jagged bangs that are oh-so-hot. Not only will expertly cut bangs look super cute and frame your face, but they can actually help to disguise a larger forehead and highlight your best facial features. Unless you’re a trained pro, cutting your own bangs rarely ends well. Head to the salon if you want bangs that will turn heads for all the right reasons.


A super short cut may sound scary, but stars such as Emma Watson have proven the results can have a striking effect. Ask your stylist for a short, textured gamine cut with tapered ends to really let your attractive facial features take center stage. Ask for short, wispy, jagged bangs to give your ‘do an added injection of femininity. Tame unruly strands with a dab of wax and you're good to go in the mornings.


The combination of a shag and bob has become so popular it’s been appropriately named the shab. Keep things fun, flirty and super sexy and adopt the shab as your ‘do. Ask your stylist for a chin-length cut with plenty of razored, choppy layers. This ‘do is full of texture and movement and is best teamed with bold, jagged bangs that skim your eyes. Ask your stylist for heavy, razor-cut bangs for an obvious jagged effect.

Tousled Bob

Stay fresh and fun with a wavy, tousled bob. The bob can be worn chin length or longer to match your face shape, bone structure and personality. Remove thickness from bulky hair by asking your stylist to add soft layers. Keep your bangs jagged and straight-across or angled and eye-skimming for a super sexy finish. Wear your bob wavy and tousled for a look you can rock on a day out with girlfriends or an afternoon in the office.

Long Layers

Long hair is gorgeously sumptuous, but without a little helping hand it can just hang like curtains. Ask your stylist for face-framing feathers to really accentuate your best facial features. Team your long locks with bold, jagged bangs to really bring your ‘do to life. Keep your bangs eye-skimming length and experiment with wearing them straight-across or pulled over to one side when you want to shake things up.
