hairstyle: thick bangs with long hair

thick bangs with long hair

i had been pinning hairstyles with thick bangs for quite awhile and finally decided to take the leap a few months ago.  it was a bit funny to me how so many people were surprised by my bangs because i have actually had bangs for several years, but i always wore them swept to the side.  rather than my normal trim (i would have my bangs cut at an angle, slightly shorter on the left, longer on the right), i asked my stylist to give my bangs a bit more of a blunt cut with fringe framing both sides of my face.  she also cut more face framing layers throughout the length of my hair.

it was exactly what i wanted!

but little did i know that it would actually take a bit of time for my normally semi-bare forehead to get used to wearing full thick bangs!  i would last about half a day then have to pin them back!  and they made me hotter!  so funny, but i’m more used to them now.


my favorite detail about these bangs is that i can wear them several ways:  thick & straight, swept to the side, or pinned back.

so have you ever had bangs?  did you love them or regret them?

    I love your new look. I’m a bang girl with long hair myself. I feel its gives our face more of a personality. And I absolutely live your blog. I look forward to reading it. I hope you have a fabulous day.

    Your hair looks incredible! I have bangs too, and I love them. You really can do a lot with them!

    Your hair always looks beautiful. You have great style. I actually just cut bangs this past weekend. It is still taking a bit to get used to especially since I have curly hair. I don’t really like a straight bang with the rest curly. We shall see if they stay.

      I so understand you. I don’t have curly hair, but wavy hair and when I cut bangs, the hair tends to “curly” and the bangs turn into a big awful wave!

      I’m a semi poodle-head (say semi since my bangs are the only part not curly). I mostly wear headbands and almost no one sees my bangs. In the past year I’ve let myself go fully grey.

    I did the same about 8 years ago. It really suited my face etc. as I have a long face however, I eventually grew them out probably for no other reason of upkeep and bugged me having hair in my eyes lol. It looks great on you!

    I had bangs until high school or college and since college, every single time I have had bangs, I have regretted it. Yours look really great, but mine end up splitting and I look like a dork! The last time I cut them I told my husband to never let me do it again!

    I LOVE this look on you!!!! I don’t have the hair to pull it off, but if I did, I’d do it in a hot minute

    I love the bangs! I had to laugh when I saw this post ’cause I’ve been dealing with the whole bang issue these days as well. I grew them out, then felt like I needed a little something — got a small amount cut but it wasn’t enough. Finally I got thick bangs but they go to the side & I feel like what you have it what I wanted — I’m going for it (I think!) ;) Thanks for sharing!
