    Ahhh, the gorgeous curtain bangs! Those who grew up in the 90s, like me, will remember this hairstyle. It was literally everywhere: Beverly Hills 90210, Twin Peaks, and more… Now they have made their very own comeback (I say now, but really they’ve been on a roll since 2022), thanks to influencers like Matilda Djerf and her delicious fashion sense. With their effortlessly chic appeal, curtain bangs have officially become a timeless trend that beautifully frames the face, so it’s not surprising to see that so many beauty enthusiasts are giving it a go! Whether your curtain bangs are short or long, there's a multitude of ways to style them to complement your unique style – let’s see together how. 

    Best Ways to Style Curtain Bangs

    Curtain bangs offer great versatility, and can be styled in various ways to suit different occasions. Let's delve into the art of enhancing your curtain bangs' charm with the right styling technique:

    How to Style Short Curtain Bangs

    Short curtain bangs have a peppy, playful flair. Here’s how to make the most of your short curtain bangs!

    70s Flip: with the aid of a smaller round brush and your trusty hair dryer, open your short curtain bangs flipping the ends outwards, for a funky, retro hair look.

    Sweeping Sideways: use a round brush and a hairdryer to gently blow-dry your bangs while sweeping them on the side. This will give you a break from the usual middle-parted look.

    Textured Waves: apply a texturizing spray to your lengths and curtain bangs to get a gently tousled, beachy finish. To add even more dimension and movement to your look, you could also use a hair straightener to create more volume.

    How to Style Long Curtain Bangs

    Long curtain bangs provide an elegant touch, framing the sides of your face with a delicate, soft, and feminine finish. A must for the Vanilla Girl. Here’s how to style them for more versatility: 

    Centre Parting: the classic choice. Part your long curtain bangs in the centre for an elegant, symmetrical look. Use a flat iron to add a slight bend for a casual yet refined appearance.

    Pinned Back: looking for a half-up style? Just take a small section of your curtain bangs on each side, twist it, and pin it on the back with the help of a couple of bobby pins.

    Pouf: with its powerful Y2K energy, the pouf is having its very own comeback! Remember Penny’s iconic hairstyle on The Big Bang Theory? And what about all those glamorous poufs seen on Pretty Little Liars? You get the idea.

    How to Style Curtain Bangs without Heat

    Using Velcro rollers can help you achieve gorgeous curtain bangs without any heat damage. Make sure you pick the right size – jumbo for a looser, softer finish, and smaller rollers for a tighter, more crimped look. You can find out more about Velcro rollers on our blog – Curls For Days: The Ultimate Velcro Rollers Guide.

    How to Style Curtain Bangs with Rollers

    If you’re looking for a quicker way to achieve beautifully styled curtain bangs but don’t know your way around a round brush and blow-dryer, hot hair rollers will do the trick just fine. Heat up your rollers, wrap your curtain bangs around them, and let them cool before releasing for gorgeous classic curls.
