The History of Curtain Bangs
Curtain bangs used to be super-popular back in the 1970s and are now on-trend once again. Curtain bangs are bangs that are parted down the middle, framing your face on each side. They’re usually on the longer side and have wispy ends, giving them a laidback, cool-girl vibe.

First popularized by the inimitable Brigitte Bardot, whose fringe began at her center parting and swept in a curve to her cheekbones, the effortless cut has spawned homages aplenty. – Refinery 29I can agree that these bangs are difficult to copy but wonderful when you really get a good hair day. Sadly my part won’t allow me to have the full Brigitte Bardot effect.
Hair Down With Curtain Bangs
There are a few different ways to wear your curtain bangs but the first would simply be to have your hair down. Gone are the days of just pin straight hair with no texture or form. Even on your most difficult hair days a little fringe can make a disheveled style look higher class. Whether it’s wind blown or hand shaken I love the personality that these bangs give off.
Curtain Bangs With A Hat
Curtain bangs are actually really easy to restyle. Don’t take a straightener to them but simply use a round brush and a hairdryer. If you are feeling like a little cover adding a wide brimmed hat or a beret can really boost your Persian style.
Style Tip: Try tucking your hair into a turtleneck and placing a wide brimmed hat on top. Create a super simple makeup look with a bold lip. I guarantee you’re going to feel like the next editor of Vogue.Below the Blonde

Pony Tail & Curtain Bangs
I love how curtain bangs give you the ability to style your hair fully up or half up-half down with a face framing property. There is something so sweet about a swooped fringe and a swinging textured ponytail.
One of my go-to Amanda Weldon looks is the half-up, half-down. It’s probably my most worn hair style. With the curtain bangs there is such a softness to the front of the look. The pieces on the side are whimsical and romantic.
Let me know if you’d ever give this look a try or if you’re looking for more hair inspiration! I can’t wait to try out some different styles with this new fresh cut!
