When you have curly hair, you might think that you can’t pull off bangs—but that’s totally not the case. You just have to take your hair texture and face shape into account to find a style that seriously suits you. Find out how to do that just below, then find the best curly haircuts with bangs to inspire you before your next salon visit. Plus, learn how to style your bangs with hair spray and hair cream. Curly hair + bangs = the perfect match when done right!
Before asking your stylist to snip bangs, make sure you’re choosing a style of bangs that’s easy to style on curly hair and is also face-flattering.
If you have an oval face…congrats: This face shape looks great with just about every type of bangs! If you have curly hair, though, a good guideline to follow is asking for bangs that aren’t too short—they should hit beneath your brow bone.
If you have a round face…thick bangs are the name of the game. In your case, you can go for shorter bangs that don’t quite hit your brows, as this can help lengthen the look of your face.
If you have a square face…opt for heavy bangs, as these can help soften the appearance of your face shape. Keep bangs long and feathery if you have curly hair.
If you have a heart-shaped face…say hello to one of our perennial favorites, the side swept bang. Choose the side you want your bangs to fall depending on where you part your hair.
Now that you know how to choose bangs when you have curly hair, it’s time to pair those bangs with a pretty new haircut. Here are the best curly haircuts with bangs to consider the next time you head to the salon.
Shaggy bob: The shaggy bob is the perfect mix between two always-popular haircuts, the shag and the bob. This is a great option for curly hair as it features layers that’ll help prevent your curly hair from getting weighed down too much.
How to style it: Play up your natural curly texture by applying a curl-enhancing hair cream, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Curl Taming Cream, to damp hair from roots to ends, distributing evenly. Blow-dry hair with a diffuser, but use a small round brush to dry bangs straight.
Long layers: When you have curly hair, the last thing you want to do is opt for a haircut that is one length, since this can lead to major pouf. A haircut with long layers will allow for more movement on curly hair.
How to style it: Give this curly haircut with bangs a smooth, sleek makeover by blow-drying it straight. Spritz on a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, then blow-dry hair (and bangs!) with a round brush.
Wavy bob: Another take on the bob haircut, this wavy version has a beachy vibe that’ll give you summertime feels no matter what time of year it is. The wavy bob looks particularly great with brow-grazing, thick, straight-across bangs.
How to style it: While hair is damp, apply a hair spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray, then let your hair air dry for tousled texture.
Lob: If you want to take part in the bob haircut trend but you’d like a little more length, consider a lob instead. The lob is the epitome of cool girl haircuts, and the good news is, it looks amazing on curly hair! A lob is typically cut near the shoulders (either right above, just at, or right below).
How to style it: If you want to go smooth, apply a frizz-taming hair cream, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream, before blow-drying with a round brush. To enhance your curly hair, apply a hair gel, like the L’Oréal Paris EverCurl Sculpt & Hold Cream-Gel, to clean, towel-dried hair, then blow-dry with a diffuser or let hair air dry.
