25 Beautiful Bangs Hairstyles For Long Hair
Looking to drastically change up your look without losing your length or dropping money on a bold new color? Add bangs! Chopping one small section of hair can make a massive difference in your overall look. Bangs take years off of your face, draw attention to your eyes, and project a bold confidence, even on the sweetest feminine hairstyles. The most important thing about adding bangs to your existing cut is knowing your face shape, as this is the major factor in deciding whether a certain style will have you crying tears of joy or regret. If you’re ready to take the plunge and keep the length you’ve been working on, these styles will provide ample inspiration.
1Soft and Sideswept Bangs
Christina Ricci has worked a fringe many times throughout her career, but her signature dark brunette color and straight across fringe has recently evolved into something softer. Her bangs have been directed to one side, and flow nicely into some face framing layers in her long, blonde hair.
2Full Blunt Bangs With Long Straight Hair
If you have very long, straight hair, adding a thick blunt bang will frame your face in a completely different way. Long hair with little to no layering can elongate the face and make you look older, but these blunt bangs do the complete opposite. The deliberate line makes eyes pop, and you can spend less time worrying about what your eyebrows look like. This straight line looks best on long or oval shaped faces, and can be unflattering on round ones.
3Short Asymmetrical Bangs
These short bangs are still rather full, and the slight asymmetry adds interest without looking too jarring. Statement bangs like this are best paired with less complicated hair elsewhere, like these long thick strands.
4Long Center Parted Bangs
A good option for women with finer hair who still want to add bangs to their style, these long centre parted bangs are one of the most low maintenance fringes to work with.

By leaving the edges of the fringe slightly longer than the center, the slightly curved shape makes this style especially flattering on square shaped faces.
7Undercut With Short Bangs
This particular style of undercut is made to be shown off when hair is tied up, and bangs can add some intrigue even when your hair is in a simple top knot. The trendy quality of a short, wide-set bang goes exceptionally well with the undercut. Letting your bangs and shave become the star of the look, people might forget you even have hair on the rest of your head.
