40 Best Haircuts With Bangs to Inspire Your Next Trendy Hairstyle

The best way to level up your style? A gorgeous fringe haircut.

1. Curtain-Parted Bangs

A fresh set of curtain bangs can add an easy touch of retro-style glam, especially if you have long, sleek hair like Kacey Musgraves.

2. Sweet and Wispy Fringe

Wispy eyebrow-grazing bangs never looked sweeter. For a cute long-haired updo look like Melissa Benoist's, pull out a couple long strands in the front of your face to give your fringed hairstyle an extra-soft feel.

3. Grown-out Shag

If you're going for more 0f a '60s-chic look, a sharp shag haircut with bangs is the perfect blend of retro and modern — and will totally look effortless and trendy no matter what kind of hair day you're having.

4. Long Retro Bangs

Before Hilary Duff recently debuted her new bangs for the Lizzie McGuire reboot, she rocked a set of long, center-parted bangs swept to both sides — an easy look for a cool '70s vibe.

5. Piece-y Baby Bangs

Give your locks a boost with uneven piece-y baby bangs like Constance Wu's, perfect for a sleek and trendy wispy style. To finish it off, use the Aquis hair primer as recommended by her stylist Derek Yuen

6. Classic Fringe

Long, straight bangs will never go out of style, especially because they're so versatile. You can wear them blunt, piece-y, parted, swept to the side, off the face — you name it.

7. Feathered Bangs

This vintage look has been in style since Jane Fonda's career first began in the 1960s. For a contemporary update, go for a dramatic side part and softly sweep the bangs to the side.

8. Textured Bangs

Go au naturel by leaning into your hair's natural texture — bangs and all. Follow Vanessa Hudgen's lead by adding texturing spray to amp up your hair's natural wave.

9. Faux Bangs

"Fake it till you make it" even applies to bangs. Empire star Taraji P. Henson added a dramatic swoop to her tight topknot for extra volume.

10. Sleek and Side-Swept Bangs

Growing out thick bangs? Sweep them to the side and add a little glossing serum all over to bring your look together.

11. Curly Fringe

Stay true to your roots (literally) by letting your natural curls shine. If your hair isn't naturally curly, try one of these tricks for effortless beachy waves.

12. Sweet and Simple Bangs

Mix up your long style by trying soft-yet-blunt bangs that hit right around the brows — and just like that, you're basically Heidi Klum.
