The original we all know and love — blunt bangs. Before you even knew what curtain bangs were, these bangs held the top spot for a cut that will help frame the hair around the face. These bangs are styled across the forehead, looking clean-cut and simple. If you’re looking for inspiration to show your stylist, definitely look up some OG pictures of Taylor Swift.

Ever heard of Jane Birkin? Well if you have, you probably know all about the hold she had on fashion trends ever since the ’60s. This actress, model, and singer-songwriter coined the iconic Birkin bang hair style, known for lots and lots of fringe. As shown, Birkin bangs hit a bit lower than blunt bangs, reaching just above the lash line. Although these bangs require a bit more upkeep and maintenance, the overall look is absolutely effortlessly chic.

Bangs can be a commitment, so this option is perfect for those who want to start slow. Wispy bangs are more simple, like blunt bangs, but still have that Birkin-bang flare. These bangs bring such soft dimension to the face that you barely know they are there. Yet, wispy bangs still achieve a flattering and trendy charm to any hair look.

If you’re worried about frizz or shrinkage, just make sure to have the bangs cut a little longer so the hair can easily grow out.
