The blunt bang is a style that comes with many fringe benefits. Not only does it update your look in an instant, but it helps to hide flaws you might be a little embarrassed of -- like a larger forehead. But in order to look your most smokin', the rest of your do has to look good with it, too. And a few options are simply ahhhh-mazing.
Long and Lovely
Create a chic contrast with a blunt bang and long tresses. Since long hair can draw out your face, bangs are a good option -- they cover your forehead, which results in a more petite-looking mug. And bonus points if you go with a subtle ombre -- you know, that cute style where the lower portion of your hair is lighter than the top. You'll look like you just stepped out of a fashion magazine when you rock this do.
Look like a fashion maven by sporting a short bob with your bangs. Hair that falls straight down around your chin looks oh-so-stylish when paired with blunt bangs. Not every face shape can pull off this look, however. For instance, square and round faces look extra full with blunt bangs. But if you've got a heart-shaped or oval face, you'll look smokin'.
There's just something stunning about wavy locks and blunt bangs. The combination of the two textures leaves your hair looking super sexy and carefree. Wavy hair that falls around the shoulders or below is a stylish look and if you don't have naturally wavy hair, don't worry. Ask your stylist to snip in some layers in your do, and with the help of some wax or gel, you can coax your locks into getting their wave on.
You likely know that accessories take your look to the next level, and the same thing goes for those that relate to your hair. Channel your inner boho-gal by rocking a floral wreath on your hair. Or slip on a cute hat. Your hair and your bangs will look sassy with the adornments, and they'll make your ensemble look even better.
