All-time it girl Brigitte Bardot made it world-famous in the 1960s and since then it has been in demand non-stop: the playful curtain bang, or also called curtain fringe (because the hair is shorter and closed in the middle, like a theater curtain dropping off the sides) is arguably one of the most commonly worn pony hairstyles around and also adorns the famous faces of Selena Gomez, Dakota Johnson, and Hailee Steinfeld. Why is he so popular? The vintage hairstyle is not only a must-have that never goes out of style regardless of trends, it simply flatters every face shape.
The effect of the curtain bangs is equally sexy, feminine, and super casual: Your hairdresser should only make sure that the edges of the side strands rest on the cheekbones.
The face is optically slightly heart-shaped, the cheeks appear more prominent and the chin slimmer. On top of that, it fits every hair length, whether bob hairstyle, medium-length hair, or long mane. And looks flattering on any hair texture, even on very fine hair.
The only question that remains is how to style the bangs correctly so that they lie as casually as possible: The key to a perfect pony is to dry the roots first after washing - especially before the rest of the pony lengths are dry, so to speak. The combination of dry roots and hair roots ultimately determines how the bangs sit all day.
First: Blow the hairdryer pointed at the scalp, the bangs down towards the face. Important: Let the hair roots dry as flat as possible to the scalp. Once the roots are dry, you can air-dry the rest. So it falls naturally. Is your hair very straight? Then you can blow-dry the ends into shape with a round brush.
