We think that one of the best ways of starting 2016 is not ringing in the new year with a bang, but instead with super cute bangs! Yes, it's time to give that haircut a shake up, and there couldn't be a better or an easier change to take on than the simple addition of a fringe. Put away those pixie-cut plans and follow our quick guide below to the hottest bangs from the runway...
Bangs: 4 styles for a new you!
1. Long and choppy
Perfect for any of you sporting long locks or 1970s-inspired shags, long and choppy bangs need a lot less fuss and attention than any of their neater counterparts. Easily swept to the side or pinned out of the way, these wavy, bedhead bangs can be subtly disguised if you grow tired of them.
2. Asymmetrical and thick
If your style is more edgy than ethereal, why not try out an asymmetrical fringe for the new year! These thick and blunt bangs look great with either smooth or tousled lengths, and suit those of you who have either round or heart-shaped faces.
3. Feathered and parted
So you want to shape your hair around your face but you aren't too keen on committing to full-on bangs? Side-parted, gradual fringes are great for any of you who get cold feet at the idea of a complete bangs-committment, as they can be easy swept aside to fall around the height of your temples and gently frame your features.
4. Heavy and dense
Finally, for those of you who never shy from trying a daring new trend, we have the dense, heavy and long cut. Keep your hair in top shape to make sure these bangs stay beautiful by investing in a nourishing hair care range and always, always use heat protection when either blow drying or ironing your new fringe.
So, are you ready to try out bangs in 2016?
