Which bangs get your vote?

Choosing the right bangs can seem like quite the challenge, so we're here to help you compare and contrast two of your major options! A straight fringe that falls vertically to or beyond your brows, and a sleek side swept look are both gorgeous looks, but which one is right for you?

Straight down

Straight bangs are great for anyone with naturally straight hair, or anyone who is prepared to commit to the necessary styling time to make them sit just where you want them. There are plenty of options with straight bangs from blunt ends to a messy, boho finish.

Styling tip - Apply a small amount of L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum to the ends of your bangs to create a piecey look. You only need a teeny tiny amount for great hold that will last all day long.

To the side

Side-swept bangs are generally longer and will create a polished, effortlessly glamorous look. This style will also create a very different frame for your face than straight bangs, which could be another fringe benefit, depending on what you want your hair to do.

Styling tip - Mist your side-swept style with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to instantly add shine and keep any rogue flyaways at bay.
