Curtain Bangs Are Back: The Easiest Way To Style Them
Everyone wore curtain bangs in 2020. The trend slowly died down in 2021, and no one was talking about them once 2022 arrived. However, all of that is going to change this year. Because curtain bangs are officially making a comeback.
Curtain bangs are a softer, longer, and fluffier version of the classic, straight bangs. They frame the face and make any hairstyle more special. Whether you choose the longer version, the one that emphasizes your cheekbones, or the shorter one, that frames the eyebrow line, the basic purpose of curtain bangs is to emphasize your most beautiful facial features. And they are also the ideal solution for anyone lacking the patience to grow out traditional, blunt bangs.
Are “curtain” bangs for you?
Although these bangs are becoming more and more popular and for good reason, before visiting the hair salon, consider whether they will suit your lifestyle. If you play a lot of sports or can’t stand the feeling of your hair touching your face, then this probably isn’t the ideal hairstyle for you.
In addition, when you decide to cut your bangs, you have to understand that they need to be maintained. That means that regular visits to the hairdresser are necessary – every 2-4 weeks. You must also know that bangs require almost daily washing and styling because they tend to get oily faster.
If none of this has deterred you from cutting your hair or you already have curtain bangs, the most important next question is how to style them.
How to style them
Wondering how to achieve the flowing, voluminous bangs worn by Hollywood stars in the 70s, but with a modern twist to it? It’s much easier than you might think.
The only things that you will need are a round brush, your hair dryer, some velcro rollers, and a texturizing spray. This will require some blow-drying skills as well. But it shouldn’t be too hard, even for beginners.
After washing your hair, and letting it air dry for a bit, start blow-drying it with a brush. Section your hair in three sections. Curl the lowest section with the brush towards your face. Roll each strand of your hair into a velcro roller after you blow-dried it so that it can cool off while in the roller.
When you come to the last section, the crown of your head, start curling your hair with the brush away from your face. This will give you the most volume. You can add some bobby pins to secure this section, and let your hair cool off in the rollers for at least 15 minutes.
After waiting for at least 15 minutes, spray your hair with texturizing spray. Wait for 5 more minutes, and start taking the rollers out. Be gentle, because this part could get a little bit painful. After you’re done, brush your hair out with a wide tooth comb, and et voilà, you have that 70s supermodel look with the puffy curtain bangs.
