Slanted bangs are a fun and flirty way to frame your face and even out your proportions. Not only do angled bangs look super cute, they also help balance your features. If your forehead is on the smaller side, keep your bangs soft and wispy to avoid your tresses swamping your face. Gals with oval faces or larger foreheads can rock the thick, slanted bang look to its full potential. Side bangs can work equally well on a range of short and longer ‘dos, making them a must-have no matter what your style preference.
Cute crops are a super sexy way to wear shorter tresses. If hours of blow-drying and straightening aren’t your thing, a pixie cut that is easy to maintain should be your go-to option. Ask your stylist for a layered pixie with tapered ends cut close to your head. Leave your bangs long and eye-skimming to contrast your shorter crop. When it’s time to glam up for an evening occasion, follow in the footsteps of Hayden Panettiere and wear your pixie sleek and slicked back.
The shab is a heavily textured choppy cut that falls around the chin. A combination of the bob and shag, the shab is full of razored, defined layers that are obvious and jagged. You can grow your pixie out into a shab, or ask your stylist for a heavily layered chin-length shab cut. Keep those bangs thick, choppy and textured to really pull this look together.
The tousled bob has firmly made its mark as a red carpet favorite amongst a host of A-listers. Keep things fresh and girly with a sweet tousled bob that you can work for almost any occasion. Ask your stylist for a softly layered bob that falls just below your chin. Enhance natural layers with a touch of styling mouse or cheat your way to gorgeous curls with your curling iron. Keep your angled bangs wispy and side-swept for a feminine and flattering finish.
Long hair oozes glamour and is extremely versatile. Give your long locks an injection of style by adding expertly cut layers. Ask your stylist for choppy and textured layers around the back and shorter-face framing strands around the front. Team your long tresses with angled, tapered bangs to give your 'do an added touch of attitude.
