What are wispy bangs?
Before you start, you can seriously ask yourself the questions: What are wispy bangs? Is it made for everyone? Unlike straight, full bangs, the wispy bangs give both character and lightness to the haircut. It will definitely give you a casual look, that we all love. Fuzzy, light and unstructured, this fringe is not equal over its entire length, which makes it possible to adapt to each face shape. Just cut it properly to bring out the natural texture of your hair! Only exception? Do not adopt it on very curly natural hair. On the other hand, it is strongly recommended for brunettes to soften their features, which are sometimes a little too severe and strict.
Why do we love the wispy bangs so much?
If you want to change your look quickly, there’s nothing like some trendy bangs! And the one we are likely to see most in 2023 is undoubtedly the wispy version. Why do we love it so much? Well, because it adapts accordingly to our desires and the facial characteristics of each one, unlike the baby bangs. On straight or curly, long or short hair, it gives lightness into each haircut. In addition, it has the power to refine and rejuvenate the face. Its major asset? It’s easy to maintain, of course. In fact, if we have to define the easiest fringe to live with, it is without a doubt that one! The best thing is to go to your hairdresser to refresh it. However, those who know how to handle scissors can maintain it at home.
What face shape is good for wispy bangs?
With a risk of repeating myself, the wispy bangs go well with all face shapes. Light and feathery as desired, it softens and refines facial features, because it hugs their shapes perfectly. The wispy style is therefore the ideal choice to enhance a round or square face. Cutting wispy bangs to the side will instantly create the illusion of a smaller forehead. But in addition to refining the face, it also has the power to rejuvenate it. It is therefore not only reserved for young girls. Mature women can also try it, since that can help erase a few years. A square cut with curtain bangs will be perfect if you are in your 50s!

How to get wispy bangs?
How to properly adapt the new trend with wispy bangs? I got one word for you: maintenance! But how to get them if going to the hairdresser is not possible at the moment? Can you cut your own bangs without messing up? Yes, but you have to know how to handle scissors. Cut with the tip of the scissors to thin the bangs. Be careful though, never cut your fringe while your hair is damp. On a dry mane, it is definitely easier to do it. You can check the video for a full tutorial!
A little advice from the editor: avoid doing what Emily from Paris did, who cut her own hair while drinking a glass of rosé. Getting bangs yourself is not an easy task. Once you mess it up, it will be difficult to camouflage it while waiting for the regrowth. Keep that in mind!
Maintenance and styling
Subtle and chic, the wispy bangs are very easy to put in place. However, avoid combing it too much, because of the risk of greasing it. Since these bangs highlight natural hair textures, no blow-drying is necessary. We like it straight, smooth or wavy. To make it stay on one place, you can spray a little hairspray on it. If it looks greasy, a few sprays of natural dry shampoo will help to refresh it. And when you’re tired of it, try using different hair accessories. Barrettes, headbands, elastic bands, bandanas… the wispy bangs go with everything. What hairstyles looks the best with the bangs? Everything is allowed. Ponytail, Bohemian bun, pigtails, braids, half-tail, it suits all styles. To give it a new shape, an appointment every two months with your hairdresser will be just fine.
