Chin-Length with Longer Layers

Curl small sections of your hair all around your head to add volume and texture. Then, separate each section and loosen them all up by combing through gently with your fingers. You can wear your bangs straight down to the eyes or brush them to the side, creating an effortlessly chic style. 

Lightly spray with your favorite product to keep your whimsical style perfect all day. This is an exceptional look for thin hair when you want it to seem thicker.

Short Hair with a Great Opening Act

One of the hottest styles for 2021 is the fantastic “curtain bangs” style. With this cut, bangs are a bit long and parted in the middle to fall to each side of the face, toward each ear. 

Curtain bangs look dynamite when worn with a wavy or straight bob; the finished look is soft and feminine. 

Side Bangs with a Textured Pixie Cut

Pixie cuts are sleek, sexy, playful, and fun; when bangs are introduced, the effect is a beautiful face-framing look that will forever be in style. 

Simply part bangs on the side of your choice and sweep them over, across to the opposite eye. It’s a hairstyle that is great for everyday lounging, working at the office, or enjoying a night out.

Full Bob and Blunt Bangs

Short hair of any length looks amazing when volume is added and bangs are used to complete the style. 

Blow-dry your hair while brushing it inward with a round brush to turn the ends in toward the head. Bring the bangs straight forward as you blow-dry to create a simple, feminine bob that never goes out of style. 

Hair rollers can be used for extra bounce and shape, too.
