Curtain Bangs Hairstyles
Thinking about getting bangs? Curtain bangs are THE bang hairstyle of the year…seriously. Curtain bangs give you the perfect in between look, having bangs without the traditional bang cut. It’s a gorgeously modern take on bangs, what’s not to love about that? Most of us are itching for some positive change to occur in our lives, even if it’s a small change like our hairstyle. Sound like you? Curtain bangs may be your next big hair change.
1How to cut curtain bangs?
To create this coveted bang look, many experts recommend starting by sectioning off the hair that you want to be cut into bangs. After you’ve gathered the amount of hair you want, begin to cut the length off. Many hairstylists are twisting the hair a tad and using the scissors vertically with a slight diagonal slant to create texture on the ends of the bangs. Then letting the bangs hang down, trim any pieces needed to create a ‘piecey’ type of look on the ends and adjust the length where needed.
