Styling short hair with bangs is an awesome way to shake up your current mid-length style, grow out a shorter cut, or just get a whole fresh new look. Bangs draw attention to your beautiful eyes and can accentuate your cheekbones as well. Another amazing perk of having bangs is that they’re the fastest way to looking “styled.” If you’re short on type but still want to look your best, you can focus on getting your bangs just right and pull the rest of your hair back in a quick up-do. Voila, you look picture perfect!
50 Versions of Short Hair with Bangs – Meet Your New Modern Hairstyle
There are almost as many different types of bangs as there are types of hair cuts! Bangs are so popular because they’re flattering and versatile. If you’re bored with a plain bob or lob, or you want to change up the look of shorter style like a pixie cut, bangs are an easy way to dramatically change the look of your style – even if you don’t change anything else! The “2018” bangs style is all about eye-grazing blunt bangs, choppy cuts, and romantic sides-swept styles.
Blunt bangs are thick, full, and one single length. Most of the time they fall between the eyebrows and upper lids in length, but they can be worn shorter for an edgier look. It’s common to see blunt bangs taper slightly down at the edges to blend in with the rest of the hair. Choppy bangs are cut straight across or at an angle, and the pieces of hair are cut at different lengths to give it a softer edge and that classic choppy look. This is a common style with short pixie cuts but also looks great with bobs and lobs.
Side-swept bangs can be long or short. They do a really beautiful job at softening up blunt, modern styles and also complement waves very well. Side-swept bangs can give the illusion of length when paired with a short cut and can add totally new shape and movement to mid-length cuts.
