I am going to talk about the curtain bangs first, because we all know them and how trendy they are! They are not only trendy, but also super versatile and easy to maintain. If you are not ready to take the plunge and commit to a brand-new haircut, curtain bangs will be a great choice to try out something cool! Curtain bangs can be long or short and they have that face-framing effect. If you want them with longer layers, they can elongate your face and make it super elegant and feminine. The side-swept curtain bangs are the classic choice, and a lot of celebrities are currently wearing them proudly.

The waterfall bangs are the current hype on the internet and especially on TikTok. After Anne Hathaway showed up at an event rocking these bangs, everyone were really impressed and wanted to try them out as soon as possible. Many people also compared Anne to her character in The Devil Wears Prada, because of the similarities in the haircut. What are the waterfall bangs? Each hair stroke is with different length and gradually become larger at the ends, which reminds us of a waterfall.
