Now, we understand that deciding on bangs is not easy as it takes a little extra work to keep styling the way you want it every day. Also, if you make a marginal mistake, it can become food for social media memes - even some of the biggest celebrities couldn't escape that fate. The blows can be relentless when you make a mistake.

So to help you escape the clutches of social media trolls and avoid a really bad experience, we've rounded up everything you need to know about curtain bangs, including the ways to style them and the products to get there. Spoiler: It looks good on everyone!

What Are Curtain Bangs?

Curtain bangs used to be a very popular hairstyle in the 70s, where the fringe (or bangs) were styled with a part in the middle, framing the face on each side. They are usually on the longer side and have smooth, soft ends, giving them a relaxed look. The good news is that curtain bangs work well with straight, wavy, and curly hair types. In addition, they are very versatile and can complement many hairstyles such as ponytails, up-dos, buns, and more.

The Benefits Of Having Curtain Bangs 

If you're still undecided about curtain bangs, there are a few other reasons you might want to give it a try. First, they can help hide an uneven hairline - a nice set of curtain bangs will hide any signs of crookedness and make the hairstyle very stylish. Second, it also helps to hide blemishes by covering fine lines and wrinkles. It can also help hide other forehead skin blemishes such as dark spots and breakouts.

What is the best way to style curtain bangs?

Curtain bangs are more of a high-maintenance style. Since there is a parting down the middle, you will need to train your hair to maintain this shape, which may mean relaxing in the hair dryer and ironing frequently. To style your curtain bangs, use a spray bottle filled with water to wet and towel dry, then spray on a leave-in spray such as L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray, which will help strengthen your hair against heat damage thanks to 450 degree heat protection. Then use a round brush to blow the bangs away from your face. Drying it this way will help the curtain bounce. Then divide them in the middle or sideways and spray them with hairspray. We recommend using L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Lock It Fine Control Hairspray to help keep it in place.

3 Hairstyles That Look Amazing With Curtain Bangs

Now you know how to style your curtain bangs, but what about the rest of your mane? Take a look at three easy to wear hairstyles that you can try below.

Hairstyle No. # 1: messy bun

If you need to wash your hair but don't have the time, this might be a great hairstyle for you. Use L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Air Volume Dry Shampoo to quickly refresh your hair by removing dirt from the scalp and giving the hair some roots. Comb the bangs as desired and sweep the rest of your hair into a messy bun. Bangs will frame your face nicely and draw attention to it because the rest of your hair won't be a distraction.

Hairstyle #2: Half Up, Half Down 

This half up and half down bun hairstyle is truly a magical method that works on different hair types and lengths. For curly girls, shrinkage is not a concern due to the length of the bangs. Start off by creating a half ponytail and transforming it into a messy bun with L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Super Curls Cream, which helps smooth curls and keep them soft. Pull up some bangs from the valance to frame your face, and don't forget to layer your fringes for this fun, carefree look.

Hairstyle #3: Banded Hair

If you're looking to avoid using heat, try incorporating hair accessories into your curtain look. We love a good headband because it comes with endless color and style options. Look for one that is flexible so that it can stretch and sit comfortably on your hair without slipping. Put the headband on your head and then adjust it where you want it to sit. Then pull the bangs and some hair close to the sides of the ear for a cool girl look. Be sure to spray on a light touch of L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Extra Strong Hold, Unscented Light Hairspray to keep the bangs in place.
