The Right Bangs for Your Hair Texture
Fringe (aka bangs) is definitely back in demand! Between curtain bangs and bottleneck bangs, there are so many fun styles to try out. But before you cut some bangs all on your own (oh please don’t, we correct so many DIY projects!), you need to know which type of bangs are right for you. Not every hair type is created equal, which is why some fringe styles look better on certain strands over others.
This style is a favorite for those with thin strands because they can make hair appear fuller when cut correctly. The key is to opt for a bang that isn’t too thick because the thicker the bang, the more
it emphasizes how thin your hair is. Keep your sideswept bangs somewhat wispy and short. Add a few spritzes of Matrix Volume Fixer Hairspray or Vavoom, that sideswept fringe will remain in perfect form.
The ever-so-popular curtain bangs are another great fringe style for fine strands. They’re not too heavy and do a great job of framing your face. Plus, they work for almost any hair type, texture, and face shape.
Face-Framing Long Bang
The great thing about curtain bangs is that they can grow out into face-framing long bangs, which is a perfect style for those who aren’t ready to commit to traditional fringe just yet. With face-framing layers, you create more dimension and depth in your otherwise flat hair. We recommend Matrix High Amplify Wonder Boost to add some umph! A few pumps used during a rough blow dry, your hair will have the body and dimension for this fun style.
Bottleneck bangs are the hot new style on everyone’s hair these days. They’re a bit similar to curtain bangs, though they’re a bit narrower in the middle and meant to mimic the curve between the neck and shoulder of a bottle. These bangs are best for thin hair because they have a face-framing effect that creates volume.
Feathered bangs are a bit fuller than wispy bangs, though not too much to where the style will make your hair thinner. In fact, they actually help create the illusion of fuller hair.
Micro-bangs, an edgy option, aren’t for everyone, but they are a fun, daring style to try. They’re especially perfect for those who want fuller, blunt bangs. Because they’re so small, they don’t take away any volume or fullness you may have in your fine strands
Jagged bangs have varying layers and aren’t a one-length, blunt cut. This can create more fullness in fine hair types, especially those with thin straight hair.
