Bangs for Curly Hair: Style Advice

Almost every woman at some point would have looked in the mirror asking herself the age old question “Should I get bangs?” If you’ve ever wanted to try bangs but have found taking the plunge a little daunting, there are definitely styles that work well with curly bangs.

When worked into a curly mane, bangs can achieve an on-trend vibe that’s effortless, yet adds a striking feature to your regular style. As with all hairstyles though, making curly bangs work is all about knowing your particular hair type and how it can be styled to suit you.

Bangs for curly hair styles

Not all curly hair types are created equal. If you want to commit to curly bangs, it’s important to know the type of curls you have. Most cuts need to take into account that there are commonly three main types of curly hair, and each has different characteristics that will influence what kind of curly bangs will work for you.

  • Wavy hair: If you have mermaid-like locks, you’ll find it fairly easy to have curly bangs. It’s recommended to go for longer layers and to have them cut into your hair when it’s dry to account for shrinkage otherwise you risk going too short..

  • Natural curls: Curly hair can range from defined curls to loose ringlets - but all can do curly bangs. The key is once again to work with hair when it’s dry to know the true length, as cutting when wet can result in shorter bangs than expected. Aim for layers to end near the eyes or slightly longer.

  • Coily hair: Coily curls often have much more defined ringlets, increased volume and a fuller body. Go for baby bangs or mid length curls that are cut when hair is dry.

  • How to style curly bangs

    Styling curly hair with bangs opens up a range of hairstyle options. The addition of bangs really changes up the look and feel of curls, adding a hint of 70s vibe to any style. If you want to change things up every day or have a go-to style that’s failsafe, these hairstyles are a useful addition to your hair look book.

    1. Messy Top Knot

    There’s something so effortless about a relaxed top knot and the addition of curly bangs gives it a slightly coquettish vibe. To try this style, flip your hair over, shake your hair around to enhance the volume and tie it into a loose high ponytail-but don’t pull your hair all the way through. Using a bobby pin, pin any loose strands down. Pull out a few tendrils of hair to add some face framing layers to enhance your curly bangs.

    2. Low Ponytail
