Curtain bangs are out! Bottleneck bangs are the new, big hairstyle trend for 2022...
At least since last year, nothing works without it - the pony! And in the new year 2022, the hairstyle trend will start a new round. However, the look is by no means simply cut straight, because soft bangs inspired by the 70s continue to set the tone.
Curtain bangs - which have long been considered the favorite for bangs - will be replaced in 2022 by a new hairstyle trend: bottleneck bangs. The look is reminiscent of icons like Brigitte Bardot and now gives your hairstyle a trendy retro update with just a few silhouettes. We explain what distinguishes bottleneck bangs and who is particularly flattered by the bangs.
Curtain bangs have become a real classic among pony hairstyles and have enjoyed great popularity over the past year. This hairstyle trend is far from fading away in 2022 and is now even getting an exciting update. Trendsetters are currently relying on so-called bottleneck bangs, which can already be seen everywhere on Instagram and promise to become a new version of curtain bangs. But where does this hairstyle trend come from?
"Bottleneck" means something like "bottleneck" and exactly this description points to the characteristic form of the hairstyle trend. Bottleneck bangs are worn a little shorter and divided in the middle, longer and wider towards the outside. In the area of the temples or cheekbones, the hairstyle also forms a soft arch (through an additional layer that is worked into the front part of the hair), which is why the silhouette of the hairstyle resembles that of a bottleneck. Bottleneck bangs give the face such a great frame and also appear a little softer more flowing, and rounder than classic curtain bangs, which are divided in the middle parting and only combed to the side.
Bottleneck bangs are a great haircut for anyone who wants a little change - but doesn't want to completely change their hair length or hairstyle. Because bottleneck bangs live from an effortless and slightly tousled look, they look great with long and gently wavy hair. But you can also combine bottleneck bangs with a smooth hair structure and medium-length haircuts like the lob.
The hairstyle trend also works with every face shape, because: Round faces are given more contour by the shortened area on the cheekbones, which works like a frame - angular face shapes, on the other hand, look softer thanks to the soft bangs. At the same time, bottleneck bangs conceal a high forehead and make it appear less wide. So: The new hairstyle trend brings certain advantages for every face shape and really flatters everyone.
Bangs are usually considered to be a bit complicated to style - after all, they should fall flat on the forehead and definitely not show any twirls. With bottleneck bangs, however, you can safely do without these demands, because a slightly wavy or disheveled structure is expressly desired with this hairstyle trend. While the straightening iron is allowed to take a break, you can still blow-dry the fringe with the round brush after washing your hair to give it volume and underline the retro look of the hairstyle.
