These pony hairstyles for long, straight hair can be styled without a flat iron!
Curtain bangs have become increasingly popular in recent years. The overly long, layered fringe plays around the face and cheats it narrower. But what is the best way to style them? Styling it can be a daunting task, especially when you have long, straight hair. We show you several haircuts and hairstyles that are suitable for everyday use and yet elegant.
Short or up to the cheekbones: the hairdressers are again fired up for the curtain bangs. The curtain bangs can be adapted to any face and look great on women with both wide and long faces. The curtain bangs can be styled differently depending on your mood and are for everyone who wants to change something about their hairstyle.
With curtain bangs, the bangs are parted down the middle. The length of the fringes varies - the inner ones are short, the outer ones - longer. The curtain bangs can be perfectly combined with a step-cut in which the fringe becomes longer. The trend hairstyle, with which the fashion icon Brigitte Bardot first appeared in the 1960s, then fell into oblivion. Until they rediscovered the fashion girls in Great Britain. Perhaps the biggest advantage of the haircut is that it is suitable for everyday use.
For now: Curtain bangs, like all bangs, need regular trimming. But the monthly visit to the hairdresser pays off because the fringe is just perfect and you save time with styling.
The quickest and easiest way is to style the curtain bangs in the morning with a hairdryer and a round brush. The very important here is that you wash the bangs first and then comb them. The hair should be slightly damp, then you can start styling. Then take the hairdryer in one hand and the round brush in the other. Place the brush over the hair and twist the bangs strand by strand outwards. Use hairspray to set the hairdo.
Women with thin hair will benefit from the so-called beach look. Style the hair and fringe with a hot air brush immediately after washing to conjure up more fullness.
Alternatively, you can simply comb the straight hair and blow-dry it upside down, turning the fringe slightly outwards with a hot air brush against the direction of hair growth.
Blow-dry the layers and curtain bang outwards to create a playful look like Farrah Fawcett. Her hairstyle in the '70s made her a role model for millions of women.
Curtain bangs can also compliment updos. All you need to do is comb the bangs and then twist them inwards if necessary.
For more structure, you can fix two strands in front with hairspray. The updo looks particularly feminine and elegant.
Ponytail hairstyles also look better in combination with curtain bangs. The bangs should be styled a little shorter and more voluminous in the middle. The fringes can be longer at the sides, framing the face.
Jennifer Lopez recently presented the perfect party hairstyle: a casual bun and curtain bangs that fall straight down.
When styling the trendy pony hairstyle, you should pay attention to a few things.
1. Wash bangs right before styling. So you can give the strands the desired shape. The fringe gets dirty faster than the rest of the hair anyway since we touch it much more often in everyday life. Sometimes because it catches the eye, sometimes to give it the shape you want. And sometimes just unconsciously.
2. Match the styling of the hairstyle to the styling of the curtain bangs. That means – straight hair, slightly arched strands around the face. Wavy hair - swept back bangs.
3. Especially if you have straight hair, you should always fix the fringe with hairspray. Otherwise, it will quickly lose volume.
4. In wind and rain, the curtain bangs quickly lose their shape. It is therefore much better to wear a hat these days.
5. Never cut the curtain bangs yourself. As simple as it may seem, cutting bangs is a job for the barber.
