Some women are not able to grow long locks no matter how hard they try. If your hair grows long, you should, certainly, be proud of your treasure and take advantage of all the styling opportunities it offers to you. With long mane they are unlimited. The full range of updos and downdos from the simplest to the fanciest ones are at your disposal. To pair your lengthy locks with bangs or not is a matter of your preference. Commonly, bangs make you look younger. They can bring out your eyes, render your appearance a mysterious look or correct your face shape if needed. Here are 20 gorgeous looks with long hair and bangs you can draw inspiration from.
What Kind Of Bangs To Pair Long Hairstyles With?
Blunt cut horizontal bangs conceal a high forehead and make an oblong face appear visually shorter. Therefore, such bangs are not recommended for broad faces. If your face is round or square it will look much better and more like an oval with side bangs.
Styling Suggestions For Long Hair With Bangs
Loose free-flowing styles. It’s an amazing feeling when a light breeze is gently caressing your tresses, occasionally throwing a few locks on a side of your face or sweeps all of them to one shoulder. This season you can rock anything from scrunch-and-go looks to beach waves.
Half up half down styles. At those times when your hair is getting too annoying, falling on your face, the easiest way to tame it is to braid the top tresses, leaving the back hanging freely. Below there are some creative on-trend suggestions.
Updos. Here we think of all kinds of buns and knots, first of all. These days they are not perfect, messy and rather loose than tight.
Downdos. A side fishtail or a low pony would be a couple of worthy suggestions for this category. Further there are more diverse ideas.
Long Hairstyles With Bangs
#1: Horizontal Waterfall Braid
To diversify your long hairstyles for straight hair try a loose waterfall braid running horizontally at the back of your head. It’s also going to keep your long tresses from falling on the face.
Or try a simple thin braid that imitates a headband and sits tightly on your head. Full bangs, covering your forehead will blend harmoniously into this hairstyle. And highlights are very welcome as well.
A glossy bun is also a good companion for bangs, especially if you have such a beautiful hair hue. To make it look more modern try not to sleek your hair too close to the scalp when making a pony for your future bun.
You’ll need a shaggy layered haircut with asymmetric arched bangs for this hairstyle. Wash your hair and scrunch it, applying a curl-enhancing product while it’s still wet. Let it air dry. Style the bangs and the front locks, covering them with a blow-dryer.
A long haircut with angled layers and scissor-thinned ends will do fine for this effortless long hairstyle. Sweep your long bangs to one side and leave the side locks scattered over the shoulders: cute and spontaneous!
Use a 2’’ curling iron to get this fun loose curl pattern for long locks. If it’s also a gorgeous hair hue, like this one, your hairstyle may easily overshadow any complicated and fancy updos for long hair.
One of the latest takes on the ombre trend suggests beginning the transition of color much higher than we are used to, closer to the roots. As we see, this technique works great for long straight hair.
Loose unkempt waves in the spirit of bedhead styles look fresh and sexy. How you can achieve them depends on your hair texture: for some of us a curl enhancer on wet locks and no combing will be enough.
A messy bun for long hair is a salvation on hot days when you can’t enjoy your free flowing styles. Note that today the messier your styles are the better. And you can certainly pair a bun with any kind of bangs you like and find flattering for your face.
And, of course, I couldn’t forget about another popular trend of the current season. Beach waves look awesome on longer lengths with bangs or without. This cute redhead is rocking them with chic and taste.
A Ponytail is one of the easiest hairstyles suitable for long hair. To make a usual pony a little bit fancier, make a bouffant and add thin side braids. By the way, you can use the ends of the braids instead of elastic.
With this breathtaking shine and color you need to keep things easy: wispy bangs to accentuate the eyes and free flowing satiny locks swept to one side are awesome and do not need any additional frills.
