Photo Examples of Different Styles of Bangs

There are a lot of different types of bangs.  Moreover, there are two ways of categorizing bangs.

First, they can be categorized in relation to the hairstyle, cut, hair type or length.  For example, you can have pixie cut with bangs.  Or long hair with bangs.  While people search for these types of bangs extensively, they don’t really describe the particular type of bangs pertaining to the bangs themselves.

The second way of categorizing bangs pertains the bangs themselves.  That’s what we set out below.  There are many different options.

1. Long bangs

Long bangs don’t refer to the long hair.  It refers to the bangs themselves which are longer than average.  These would need to be parted, side-swept, long side bangs or they may be found on the side flowing over the years.

Example of long bangs
Long bangs parted in the center. Technically called curtain bangs but good example of long bangs.

2. Short bangs

Short bangs are dangerous because they can look really odd if cut too short.  Bangs must fit with the rest of the hair.  Short bangs only really work with certain pixie cuts.

3. Straight bangs

Straight bangs drop straight down to above the eye.  They don’t curve, sweep or part.  They’re like a hair wall dropping down over the forehead.

Example of a woman with straight bangs

4. Blunt bangs

These are bangs cut in a straight, horizontal line.  See our full blunt bangs gallery here.

5. Parted bangs

Parted bangs are usually parted in the center, but can be asymetrically parted which is a side part.

Example of middle parted bangs and side parted bangs.
The woman on the left has side-parted bangs and the woman on the right has middle parted bangs.

6. Side-swept bangs

Side-swept bangs can be longer because they sweep to the right or left away from the eyes.  It’s an elegant look.  See our side-swept bangs photo gallery here.

7. Feathered bangs

Feathered bangs deploy a cut where the bangs are are different lengths (via layers) so when styled you achieve a feathered look.

8. Wispy bangs

These are achieved by cutting bangs different lengths which when the hair hangs, it appears to be combed to the side but it’s really not because it’s the different lengths giving that appearance.  The wispy areas have gaps in the hair giving it a wispy look.

9. Fringe bangs

Deploys a cutting approach to shape the bangs in any number of styles.  There are many bangs hairstyles that can be called fringe – it’s essentially a technique shaping the bangs (i.e. hair dropping over forehead).

10. Layered bangs

This is when bangs layers are cut different lengths for texture over the forehead.

Example of woman with layered bangs.

11. Long side bangs
