FAQ: Side Bangs

What is the difference between side bangs and curtain bangs?

Side bangs are cut straight across your forehead, creating a framing of your face on one side.
Curtain bangs are longer and split in the middle, creating soft framing on both sides of the forehead, and their feathered edges create a tousled-up look. In this case, your hair is most likely to be also parted down the middle.

Do bangs make you look younger?

Bangs hide forehead wrinkles and beautifully frame your face. Bangs ca also make your face look smaller. There are plenty of options that suit best every face shape. Choose bangs that are not too short, so they do not draw attention to fine lines around your eyes.

Do bangs look good with glasses?

You can make any type of bangs work with glasses. Our tip: try to keep bangs from interfering with your glasses. When getting straight, blunt bangs go in every three weeks for a trimming and commit to a daily blow-drying and styling so they keep their shape.
