The Hottest Trend of 2021 is Fringe Bangs!

April 26, 2021

After a long year locked down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s finally time to update your look with a fresh new haircut or bang trim in Anchorage, AK. The hottest trend of 2021 is fringe bangs: slightly longer bangs that hit the brow area. You can style them in many different ways, making them a versatile choice that will soften your look. Find out if fringe bangs are right for you by reading on.

What are fringe bangs?

Bangs go in and out of style over the years, and fringe bangs are back in full force right now. This long, often lash-skimming bangs style can be pushed forward, or off to one or both sides. Their “weight” can also vary, from heavy bangs to light fringe. Fringe bangs tend to be cut choppily, especially toward the ends. This lightens the look, depending on how choppy and soft you go. They’re also great for any length of hair, from pixie cuts to long, flowing locks. You can also wear them with any hair type—curls and waves are great for softer styles.

Fringe bangs often require more maintenance than other styles. They tend to get greasy fast, thanks to their constant contact with your face. You’ll want to invest in a great dry shampoo to keep your hair looking great in between washes. (They can also cause breakouts, so if you have trouble keeping acne under control, you might want to skip this style.) Styling tools depend on what kind of bangs you’re going for—if you want tousled bangs, get a large round brush and texturizing spray. For sleek bangs, a hair straightener can help. Plan to get your bangs trimmed in Anchorage, AK every four to six weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows and how long your bangs are.

Fringe bangs are flattering for just about every face shape, thanks to their versatility. Your stylist can help you decide which exact style would best suit your face and features. In the meantime, check out the list of fringe bangs types below to get an idea of which styles appeal to you:

  • Full fringe: This style is straight and tousled, with full weight at the top and choppy pieces at the bottom. It looks great with naturally straight hair, but can be adapted for other textures.
  • Curtain fringe: A curtain fringe involves long, side-swept bangs parted at the middle (hence the name). They tend to taper off to the side and look particularly great with wavy hair.
  • Bardot fringe: This is a shorter, softer version of the curtain fringe, without the dramatic side-sweeping. Look at photos of Brigitte Bardot for further inspiration.
  • Curly fringe: If you have big curls, a brow-skimming fringe softens your face and shows off the texture.
