Curtain Bangs

After seeing highlights from last night’s AMAs, I could stop thinking of Taylor Swift’s dreamy, perfectly messy ‘do—especially those carefree parted bangs she had going on…

In fact, I loved it so much I became totally obsessed with finding similar looks, all of which I completely adore. There’s something so sexy and undone about parted bangs—especially when mixed with tousled waves, don’t you think? I think this style would be especially lovely with dressier holiday looks to keep them grounded and understated. These are some of my favorite takes on the look…

    I love bangs, everything about them. Especially when they’re carefree like these, but when you have thicker hair like mine, I’ve found it’s harder to keep that look. Maybe I just haven’t had the right cut?

      Hm, yes, my hair is definitely not thick. Perhaps bring some photos with you at the stylist next time? A good stylist can do wonders!

    I looove this style of bangs and it looks great on you! I have wanted to try it for a while, but I’m too chicken. Maybe one day!

      I have my bangs cut as short side-brushed bangs, and I am definitely able to still do this look—for me, it’s all about versatility with bangs. I never want to get stuck with one way to have them, so I’m glad to have found this little alternative :)

    This is the only kind of bangs my face can handle – every so often I’ll have long, curtain-ish bangs cut and then immediately start growing them out, but they’re so cute that I just can’t resist sometimes!
