1. Understand it’s a Serious Business

Resist the urge to treat your fringe like it’s the least part of your hair. Just as you’ll be spending minutes brushing the back of your hair, you should also dedicate time to brushing and dressing your fringe in any of the different styles you want.

Yes, it’s serious business.

2. Be Ready to Cut Some Hair

Your hairstylist will have to cut your weaves or natural hair (for Caucasian & Asian hair) to achieve the short bangs that’ll be in front. You have to come to terms with this if you wanna rock bangs.

3. Invest in Proper Maintenance

There are different styles of bangs for long hair whether curly, wavy, or straight. Let’s look at the best of them:

1. Curtain Bangs

These styles of bangs for long hair are parted in the middle just like curtains. They’re low maintenance and easy to grow out. They also require minimal maintenance like trims.

Also, you can have them in layers and rock them how you like. 

2. Blunt Cut Fringe

“All things being equal” also applies to bangs too. The blunt-cut fringe is of equal length around the edges.

3. Subtle Bangs

As the name implies, this style is subtle. Unless you look closely, you won’t tell it’s a fringe as it’s usually parted like a curtain fringe with more volume on the sides than in the middle.

This bang easily blends into the sides of your hair. And you can easily tuck them away when your forehead needs to breathe fine. 

4. Bangs with Curls

Most times, the entire hair is curly from front to back as well as the bangs.

5. Scanty Bangs

This style has little or no volume. The fringe isn’t full.

Instead, it’s usually scanty around your forehead. It’s great for flashing bits of your forehead too.

6. Side-Swooped Bangs

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or creating fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
