Side swept bangs still hot!
Can’t decide to cut in side swept bangs?
“Side Swept Bangs and Fringe are Very Much in Style”I had a client ask me the other day, if side swept bangs were still in style. My honest answer was “Since they look good on you and you like them, keep wearing them!” Side swept bangs draw attention to the eyes and look good on every face shape. These side swept bangs also soften and slim the angles of the face. You can wear them with short or long hair as well! They look ultra sleek on Nicole Richie, her soft side swept bangs and fringe give her a totally soft and feminine look.
Side swept bangs can be blended in with a layered haircut, but if you have a blunt haircut your bangs really don’t need to be blended in. You need to keep your side bangs long and tapered to the side they are combed. You can control the amount of hair you sweep over, by moving your part up or down. Consider having your bangs cut with the slide cutting technique or razor cut.
Razor cutting your bangs give them a soft, wispy, grown-out look. The razor cuts the ends at an angle so the hair moves more and blends better. Fine and medium textured hair types respond well to razor cutting, showing visible separation on the ends.
How to Get Side Swept Bangs
Do you like Hilary Duff’s retro-looking side swept bangs? You can create some of your own by backcombing underneath, then smoothing the top layer over them and spray with hairspray. I like Joishape by Joico; it’s a shaping and finishing spray that you can use with hair dryers and flat-irons. Joishape is a lighter spray that allows you to work with your hair after spraying it.
Another cutting option for side swept bangs is undercutting. Leaving a longer top section causes the hair to curve under slightly. Most hair types respond nicely to undercutting, especially fine hair. I like Kate Hudson’s under-cut side swept bangs because the ends are tapered underneath, giving her bangs a soft, round look.
I would say that side swept bangs are still very much in fashion, since they truly do look good on everyone!
