Great Bangs


lash kissing

Bangs so beautifully cut they blend right in, but somehow still stand out as a statement beauty detail. Very long layers kiss the lashes and even head beyond a bit to form a very full fringe. Blow-dry with a round brush, then get ready to peek mysteriously from behind your tress curtain.

straight across

Maybe your mom was on to something when she cut those straight-across bangs in the kitchen when you were ten. The trick to making them work for today’s modern cuts is to keep them long, brushing across the eyebrows, and to make sure there’s a tiny bit of notching going on–so the line isn’t completely straight. Style by brushing bangs down and fingering through while blow-drying.

on the side

A super-short nape combines with long crown layers for a totally cute pixie with edge. Further advancing the style’s cool vibe is an elongated bang that sweeps low over the eye on one side. A bit of styling gel helps keep the look spikey, while a mist of hairspray will help hold those bangs precisely in place.

Lisa Rinna

Days Of Our Lives alum Lisa Rinna is famous for her short cut, which we regularly get to see on Real Housewives.  

Short and sassy hair pairs beautifully with layered bangs with a hint of an angled side part. A round brush and blow-dry infuses hair with volume, and positions bangs just so. Hint: Brush bangs both to the right and the left while blow-drying for a fuller finish.
