40 Curly Bangs That Will Make You Want Bangs Now
40 Photos That Will Make You Want Curly Bangs
If you're anything like me, you grew up thinking that you couldn't ever wear bangs since you had curly hair. You wished for fringe and all the haircuts you would never wear for years. Then, if you're anything like me, you cut them yourself and let them grow for two whole years before cutting them again. Here's the thing: Whoever told me curly-haired females couldn't grow bangs was lying, despite all that.
Nothing transforms your curls from boring to fabulous with a few chops as a decent pair of bangs. Bangs have become quite popular this season as more and more naturalistas boldly sport curly bangs (without using a straightener) to show off their gorgeous texture. Celebrities like Zendaya and Rihanna have been spotted rocking the fringe, whether they are growing it out, keeping it short, or stacking it on top of a traditional set of curls. Let's take a look at the 40 pictures below and get inspired!
Fringed Curly Pixie
We adore this cut precisely because it defies all the "rules" for curly hair. This piece-y spiral fringed ultra short pixie is edgy and playful. Heaps advises keeping to a trim plan and seeing your hairdresser every four to six weeks if you have a certain length you want to maintain (depending on how fast your hair grows). Also, ask your stylist whether the salon you frequent offers complimentary bang trims between haircut sessions.

Ringlets All Over
Zendaya has bangs that are also curly and a full head of swirling ringlets. Richman advises having your bangs trimmed when your hair is still holding the texture you usually wear. Of course, you can always trim them a bit shorter, but if you go too short, there's no turning back.
The Present Mullet
A really modern interpretation of the mullet is this top-heavy haircut. Mullets, once a throwback to the 1980s, are now full of volume and couldn't be more in style.
It's not necessary for the fringe to go horizontally over the forehead. A few shorter bits that fall over the apples of Rihanna's cheeks in her wet-look bob give the largely single-length style more depth.
Side-swept bangs, like the one Sandra Oh is sporting in this photo, are a little bit simpler to maintain than straight-cut bangs. The secret to curling bangs, Scarlett advises, is to start cutting them extremely long—to your cheekbones at the very least—regardless of the style you're looking for. Reevaluate as you go and keep an eye on the direction of your natural curl.

The baby bangs and curling lob on Yara Shahidi are very stylish and classic. Be ready to adjust your bangs: According to Mills, "if there's one curl or piece of hair out of place, simply touch it up with a curling iron to get the curls moving in the appropriate way." Depending on how adept you are with an iron (keep in mind you are quite near to your face), I would suggest doing this in a medium setting.

Natasha Lyonne very much always has her trademark huge curls and wavy fringe on display, trends be damned. Have your stylist hold the curl's end while gently cutting downward with the shears facing down (while they slowly open and shut their shears), Marjan advises, to make the ends lighter.
