Bangs, combed to the side, will always be the perfect detail of a classic hairstyle. Whether it’s short bangs or long side swept bangs, it will add interest to your haircut. Plus, they can be simpler than straight bangs. Often side bangs are an intermediate stage where shorter bangs grow out.
Creating Your Ultimate Side Swept Bangs Look
Side bangs are the most versatile bangs. They can go great with longer layers and look great on chic updos and ponytails. Bangs are known for framing the face, while side bangs are a more relaxed cut. Whether your hair is textured, straight, very short or very long, there’s a beautiful side swept bang for you! So let’s see what they offer us.
