Getting bangs can be a tricky business, not least because a fringe has the power to change your entire hairstyle in one fell swoop... or should that be snip? Unsurprisingly, choosing the right look for you can seem pretty difficult, but thanks to this season's apparent penchant for longer fringe styles, there's more room to move than you might think.

In the same way a long bob is a good starting point for anyone who wants to try a short cut but in't quite ready to commit to anything radical, long bangs can help you to figure out what you want.

With brow or even lash-skimming bangs, you'll get a good idea of whether you like them as they are, want to go shorter or would prefer to grow them out, safe in the knowledge that you tried a new look.

Long bangs can also be styled into a few different styles, allowing for more flexibility than shorter looks. From piecey waves to sleek blunt bangs, there are plenty of options to choose from, as demonstrated by the photo gallery above.

Styling tips for bangs

1/ Blowdrying

Becoming the master of your own bangs all rests on a decent blow-dry. Apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream, then blow out your bangs to the left, then the right, then straight down.

2/ Styling

To control any natural movement and/or create a piecey finish, apply a tiny amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty with your fingertips. For a glossy finish, spray your bangs and the rest of your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.

3/ Maintenance

Regular trims are important for any bangs, especially if they're at eyelash-level to start with. That said, you can always blow them out to the side or part them in the middle to retain an unobstructed line of vision when you can't make it to the salon!
