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.

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.

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

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.

13. Messy Fringe

A perfect addition to a shag style, Alison Brie's bangs don't just go across the forehead like typical bangs; they frame the sides of the face as well, for a sexy tousled effect.

14. Deep Side Swoop

Kyra Sedgwick's full side-swept bangs are a flattering way to prevent an updo from looking severe.

To bring a unique touch to a typical blunt bob, ask your stylist for thick bangs and then part them to the side.

16. Wispy and Side-Parted Bangs

Haircuts that hit right around the shoulders can fall a little flat, so ask your stylist for brow-grazing side bangs, then use a large barrel curler to add volume all over.

17. Short and Sparse Bangs

Get that Katy Perry look — perfect for weddings, special occasions, and more — with short, cute bangs and simple updo.

18. Edgy Bangs

Just a tiny bit of messiness makes side-swept bangs look edgy without completely erasing a polished feel.

Add a chic accent to your topknot with shaggy fringe that hits just below the brow. It draws attention to your eyes and keeps your updo looking fresh.

20. Thick Curtain Bangs

Jameela Jamil's thick bangs are slightly parted in the middle, revealing a tiny bit of forehead but still allowing for that adorable blunt-bangs look.

21. Uneven Baby Bangs

The choppy nature of Alison Sudol's short bangs works perfectly with her wavy, angled bob.

22. Flippy Bangs

A little swoop at the ends of your side-swept bangs create a timeless look without feeling costume-y. Here's proof.

23. Eyelash-Skimming Bangs

These long, choppy-yet-blended bangs are the perfect finishing touch to a sexy updo.

24. Updo With Smooth Bangs

A set of smooth, blown-out bangs adds instant drama to a classic updo. If you aren't going for the regal look, pull out a few strands around the hairline for a wispy effect.

25. Spiky and Sweeping Bangs

If you have a short haircut, your bangs are practically built in — just add a little texturizer for added movement and go!

26. Wavy and Feathery Bangs

If you're growing out a bob and you're getting bored of it, try adding some shaggy bangs to the mix.

27. Glossy and Center-Parted Bangs

Adding sweet, center-parted bangs to a sleek ponytail adds a vintage touch to your style.

28. Thick and Choppy Bangs

Thick, jagged bangs that hit just around the eyebrows add a fun effect to a shoulder-length cut like Kerry Washington's.

29. Layered Fringe

Draw the eye to your jawline by adding long razored layers that point inwards, then ask your stylist for slightly shaggy bangs that aren't too dense.

30. Sleek Bangs

Side-parted bangs are pretty, but they can be tough to keep out of your eyes. If yours are always falling out of place, spritz a little hairspray on your comb and use it to push your bangs to the side

31. Unique Crop

This unique cut features blunt bangs with a few (optional) longer pieces thrown into the mix.

32. Center-Parted Bardot Bangs

Bangs like Brigitte Bardot's are never a bad idea. If you have long layers toward the front of your hair, blow them nice and smooth with a little bend toward the bottom, then part them down the center and pile the rest of your hair up in the back.

33. Thick and Straight Bangs

Take your long, layered hair to the next level with a cool, blunt set of bangs that hits just below the eyebrow.

34. Wispy Bangs With Shag

Bring a Brigitte Bardot-esque touch to your shaggy long locks with wispy bangs. Just make sure to blow them out after shampooing — frizzy bangs are the opposite of what you want with this look.

35. Straight Bangs

Add oomph to your standard crown braid by straightening your eyebrow-length bangs and spritzing a little shine spray for polish.

36. Blunt Bangs

These blunt bangs give your 'do a dramatic, stunning look, but just a warning: This perfectly straight style takes a lot of maintenance and frequent trims.

37. Curled Bangs

If you've always wanted bangs but aren't quite ready to make the commitment to having them in your face all the time, try bangs that sweep off to one side. Style the rest of your hair asymmetrically and wavy for a beautiful Laura Dern-inspired look.

38. Blunt Bangs With Wispy Sides

If you have fine hair and are a little nervous about how thin your bangs will look, ask your stylist for thick bangs that start a little higher up. Add a few wisps to each side to soften up the look.

39. Voluminous Bangs With a Side Part

To add a little boost into your bangs, get them wet, then blow dry them using a round brush, alternating the position of the dryer to get your bangs extra shiny and full of bounce.

40. Stick Straight Bangs

If you're a little self-conscious about a high forehead, ask your stylist for long bangs that start high to disguise it. Or go bold like Tyra Banks and make your hair all one length.
