Curtain Bangs

Curtain Bangs -  How to Style & Wear Them at Gusto Hairdressing in Soho, Oxford Street & Covent Garden

If you're looking for a 1970's inspired hairstyle that is still wearable today, look no further than curtain bangs (yes, yes I know we Brits usually say fringe, for the sake of the blog, let's use them interchangeably). This style is making a comeback, and for good reason - it's versatile and can be styled in many different ways. In this blog post, we will discuss how to style and wear curtain bangs. We will also provide some tips on how to care for them so they stay looking their best.

What Are Curtain Bangs & How Do They Differ From Other Styles Of Fringes?

Curtain bangs are a type of fringe that is parted in the middle and hangs down over the forehead, framing the face. Curtain bangs are a type of fringe that's long in the centre and shorter on the sides, kind of like...well, a curtain. They can be worn with any hair length, but they look best when they are about chin-length or shorter.

How To Style Curtain Bangs For Different Occasions

Curtain bangs can be styled in many different ways to suit any occasion. For a casual look, you can simply let them hang loose. If you're going for a more polished look, you can sweep them to the side or back with a headband or clip. And if you want to really make a statement, try curling your curtain bangs with an iron for bouncy, retro-inspired curls.

The first step to styling any type of bang is to make sure you have the right haircut. Once you have the cut, though, the rest is easy!

Just follow these simple tips:

♦ Start with dry, clean hair. If your hair is greasy or dirty, your bangs will just look greasy & dirty too. Take the time to wash and dry your hair before you start styling.

♦ If you have straight hair you can style your curtain bangs with just your fingers and a little bit of product. Just run some pomade or gel through your bangs and comb them into place. Hold them there for a few seconds while they dry, then let go, and voila! You're done. 

♦ If you have wavy or curly hair, you'll need to blow dry your bangs straight before you style them. Once they're dry, you can use a flat iron to get them super straight if you want. Just be careful not to forget any pieces! Once your bangs are straight, style them as described above.

♦ Don't forget about the rest of your hair! Curtain bangs look best when they're styled with the rest of your hair in mind. If you have long hair, consider blow-drying it back away from your face so that your bangs really stand out. Or, if you have short hair, try using some pomade or wax to give it some texture and hold. 

The Best Products To Use For Styling Curtain Bangs

When it comes to styling curtain bangs, there are a few key products that can help you achieve the perfect look. First, you'll need a good volumising shampoo and conditioner to help give your hair some body. Then, use a root lift spray or mousse to help add some texture and hold. When blow-drying your hair, be sure to use a round brush to help smooth out the bangs. Finally, use a lightweight hairspray to help keep everything in place. With these products, you'll be able to create beautiful, bouncy curtain bangs that will frame your face perfectly.

A few extra tips...

♦ If you have wavy hair, try using a sea salt spray to enhance your natural waves. You can also use hot rollers to create loose, beachy waves.

♦ If you have curly hair, try using a leave-in conditioner or curl cream to help define your curls. You can also use a diffuser to help dry your hair without causing frizz.

♦  Curtain bangs require a little bit of extra care to keep them looking their best. Here are some tips on how to take care of your curtain bangs:

♦  Wash your hair with a gentle shampoo and conditioner to avoid stripping away natural oils.

♦  Use a leave-in conditioner or serum to help protect your hair from heat damage.

♦  Avoid using too much product, which can weigh down your hair and make it look greasy.

♦  Get regular trims to avoid split ends and keep your curtain bangs looking fresh.
