Curtain Bangs Are the Biggest Hair Trend for Summer 

5 minutes read

What are curtain bangs? Long curtain bangs or fringe bangs are parted down the middle and frame the face on both sides — like a curtain. Haircuts with long textured bangs were big in the ’70s, and are gaining popularity again.  

Curtain bangs can come in many different looks and lengths, depending on your hair texture and the cut you prefer. You can use various styling techniques to achieve your best curtain bangs. It can be a low maintenance hairstyle for any age, hair texture or colour.   

Curtain bang styles  

What works with long curtain bangs? Almost every style — you can wear parted in the middle or slightly to the side will still count. Here is all the curtain bang inspiration you need for summer 2022.

Ponytail with long bangs 

Both elegant high and low ponies are a perfect bang match. Fix the strand with a hairpin around your scrunchie to hide it, add on-trend earrings, and you are ready for summer.

Half up, half down and headband hairstyles 

Long bangs look good with half up hairstyles with ponies, braids, top knots, headbands, or head scarfs. A silk scarf will give a retro vibe to your look.

Bun with curtain bangs 

Make sure to release your face-framing strands when creating a hair bun. This gives it a casual look instead of the tight, shiny ballerina buns that can be pretty severe.

Your perfect curtain bangs can be different lengths, more textured or smooth, relatively straight, or longer inside and shorter on the outside — it’s about getting your hairdresser to trim at a length to suit your face and hair type. Often cutting in around the cheekbone is a flattering option.

Blow drying curtain bangs  

How to blow dry curtain bangs? 

  • Apply thermal protection on damp hair. 
  • Wind your strands on a round brush and blow-dry. 
  • Clip into place and allow to cool.  
  • Spray some finishing spray and wait until set before you release them.

You can also style your curtain bangs with a curling iron or a straightener. Dry your hair first, and don’t forget about thermal protection. Oversized barrel irons or curlers will give a nice bouncy feel to your bag. Wrap around the heat tool in an outward direction and then when you release, mist some hair spray onto the ringlet and allow it to dry and cool before releasing the coil with your fingers.

Using rollers with curtain bangs  

How to use velcro rollers for curtain bangs? This is worth trying, because it’s less damaging than hot tools.  

  • Part your bangs into sections and apply a styling mousse. 
  • Place the rollers under your hair, slide to the end, roll down and fix. 
  • Wait about 15 minutes (you can take time to do your make-up). 
  • Remove the rollers, and fix the hairstyle with a finishing spray.  
  • And then add a serum or cream to tame flyaways or frizz.

Are curtain bangs high maintenance? 

Want to figure out, are curtain bangs high maintenance? Sometimes long bangs can look gorgeous, but on a bad hair day, they appear messy and unruly. To avoid this, follow a few simple rules: 

  • Stock up on hairpins or a headband so you can control bangs on a bad hair day.  
  • Trim your bangs every 5-6 weeks to keep them fresh and in place.  
  • To get rid of split ends, use a sealant like Philip Kingsley Bond Builder.
