If you’re tired of the simple traditional straight bangs that accompany many women’s hairstyles, then you need to consider bottleneck bangs!
Named after their similar appearance to that of the neck of a bottle, this wispy style of fringe features a subtle part in the middle, billows out around the eyes, and is longest at the temples.
It typically grazes the eyebrows but is oftentimes longer for a more dramatic or softer look and the best part about bottleneck bangs is that they amazingly complement most face shapes.
It’s the perfect fringe whether you’re trying to lengthen or widen your face, and it does so while flattering your best angles.
