Haircut with bangs

There is currently a wide variety of haircuts with bangs to choose from. The measure is a good place to start. Decide if you prefer it short, medium or long, taking into account that a longer length usually also involves more work.

Once the measure is completely clear, it is time to focus on the following decision: the sides and the neck. Do you prefer them with clippers or scissors? Finally, you choose how to comb the bangs: down, to the side, tidy, messy … As in the previous decisions, It is a good idea to bet on what is most flattering.

Short bangs

Of all the haircuts with bangs, the César or French crop style cut is the shortest measure. So, naturally, it is the most manageable and easy to comb. Because of this It is the best option if you would like to have your bangs ready in a few minutes in the morning. On the other hand, it covers a smaller front part than the medium and long bangs. This can be an inconvenience if, for personal preferences, you prefer to have a more covered forehead.

The sides and neck are usually shorter than the top, so the first two areas are cut with clippers and the last with scissors. The difference can be smooth or there is a big jump between the sides and the top, as in modern haircuts. In any case, if you prefer a more proportionate version, you can always ask your barber to cut everything with scissors.

The short bangs is not a single measure, but can be cut to various lengths depending on what is most flattering in each case. The shortest version is very close to the hair growth line.

When combing it, it is very important to find your own style. Try down or to the side. If you prefer something more indefinite, consider a studiously messy bangs.
