What are curtain bangs 2022?

Curtain bangs haircuts are the kind of hairstyle that frames your face from both sides. Such bangs are cut shorter on the inside and gradually become longer as we move towards the outside. Mostly a curtain fringe is done at the center parting. These are a softer, more bespoke version of straight-across bangs that flatters your bone structure and highlight certain facial features, such as the eyes and cheekbones.

Curtain bangs' look has origins dating back to the 1960s and 1970s (think Jane Birkin). However, today's interpretation of this sexy haircut works with a more diverse range of hairstyles and textures - like curly shags, messy waves, high ponytails, and sleek blowouts - you name it. Basically, this style is the gateway to fringes because they are highly impactful and super versatile, meaning they are long enough to grow out or pin back (if you wish), and you can even cut them into a shorter look like a pixie cut.

How should you style curtain bangs?

When working with straight, curly, or wavy hair, shape your bangs while your strands are still wet. This technique proves much advantageous to accentuate your fringes. If you are skeptical about working with wet hair, try blow-drying your hair straight down using a flat brush. Furthermore, you need to remember, that although curtain bangs look their best and are romantic and dreamy, on a bad hair day they will most probably look like one hot mess of unruly hair. If that is something you dread, this hairstyle may agitate you in the longer run - decide accordingly.
