Curtain bangs that end slightly below your eyes and curled towards the end will help you look more fresh-faced. As it's parted down the middle, you won't have to worry about your bangs overwhelming your features, which is also one of the biggest reasons why this bangs style is way easier to pull off compared to other types of bangs.

#2 Hides imperfections

If you have a receding hairline or simply find your hairline unsatisfactory, long curtain bangs can do a good job in hiding it. Curtain bangs can also give the illusion of a more proportionate and slimmer face as the hair frames your face naturally.

We mean it when we say curtain bangs are extremely versatile! Regardless of whether you have short or long hair, wavy or straight hair, curtain bangs will fit seamlessly into any hairstyle and will look good most of the time. Even when you tie up your hair, you can leave your curtain bangs down to frame your face.

#4 Low maintenance

Curtain bangs are low maintenance and lazy girls will be glad to know this! Shorter bangs styles such as airy bangs and choppy bangs will require frequent trips to the hair salon to get them trimmed, but you won't have to do so with curtain bangs. When your curtain bangs grow out, you can just tug them behind your ears, pin them back or simply curl them a little to continue framing your face.

#5 Many different styles to try

The best part about curtain bangs is that you will get to experiment with a lot more styles to find one that will look flattering on you. From thick long side bangs to shorter ones that curl slightly and airy bangs parted down the middle, the options are endless.

We hope you're feeling more confident in changing up your look for the rest of 2020!
