Long bangs, short hair - the best of both worlds?

To get the perfect short haircut for your face shape, striking the right balance is important. This is especially true when bangs are involved. Longer bangs can be moved around in order to frame the face in a number of different ways, giving you a lot of different looks to try with just one haircut. Similarly, getting long bangs cut into your existing short cut is a great way to immediately update your look.

Fortunately, long bangs that can be swept and pinned wherever whenever look good on just about everyone.

So, why not have it all and enjoy the best of both worlds with a short cut and long bangs?

How to style

There are quite a few different looks to try, it all depends how you like to wear your bangs and whether or not you want to mix things up a little with a pomp, brushed-back style or even a short hair updo.

Loose: You can use a blow-dryer to get your bangs looking all smooth and sleek, just make sure you apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream first and hold the ends as you dry. This will act as a heat protectant while encouraging a straight finish. Alternatively, spray Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray and flat iron your bangs instead if that's your regular heat styling tool of choice!

To the side: For a side-swept look, the same rules apply, only you'll need to define a side part with a tail comb first.

Swept-back: To give your short cut extra height and volume, try creating a small pomp. To do this, spray the roots with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and tease the hair. Once you're satisfied with the amount of height, smooth it all over, back from your face, and pin into a pomp.

If you're still not convinced that long bangs are right for you, micro bangs are always an option!
