Girls with long hair should never underestimate the power of long hairstyles with bangs. This is a modern and fashion-forward hairstyle that will never go out of fashion.
Long bangs are great for keeping your hair out of your face and making high maintenance long hair much easier to style and control. Not sure if bangs would suit your face shape? The good news is that with so many different types of bangs available, there is the right hairstyle to suit everyone!
If you already have long hair and want a new style without changing your length then adding bangs is a great way to completely revamp your look and give yourself a whole new style: it’s amazing how different your hair will look when you choose to add bangs, and the best thing is, they’re really easy to control and maintain.
Long Hairstyles with Bangs to Try
Long hair with bangs looks fantastic, but it isn’t always easy to manage. Make the most of your style by asking your hairdresser to add subtle layers through your length; this will make your hair much more manageable. The best thing about choosing to wear your hair long with bangs is just how versatile the style can be. Whether your hair is curly or smooth, blonde or brunette, here are some trendy long hairstyles with bangs inspiration to ensure you make the most of your long hairstyle:
1. Straight and Sleek Long Hair with Bangs
Thick blunt bangs look great paired with long glossy locks, particularly if your hair is a rich shade of brunette. Ask your hairdresser to give you blunt straight bangs that are all the same length, and blow dry your hair with a wide flat paddle brush to make sure each hair follicle is as smooth as possible.
The key to maintaining this look is to have regular trims to ensure your hair remains in tip-top condition, and add a gloss spray or serum through the lengths of your hair to make sure it looks as sleek and shiny as possible.

2. Cute curls with side swept bangs
If you are petite and have a round or heart-shaped face then softer bangs which sweep to the side and frame your face would suit you best. Ask your stylist to feather cut your bangs, cutting into them to soften them, rather than create a blunt straight look. These bangs should be longer on one side than the other; sweep your hair across your face in each direction to decide which suits your face shape best.
Pair your long, side-swept bangs with voluminous exaggerated curls through the length of your hair to create an eye-catching style that will attract attention for all the right reason. Add a volumizing texture spray to the roots of your hair and scrunch your curls with plenty of mousses to hold your style.
3. Long Hair With Bangs and Balayage Highlights
For a look that is on trend and ultra-modern, add soft balayage highlights to your long hair with bangs. This is a great way to color hair with bangs as the color is hand painted onto the length of the hair, meaning your stylist can create a look that is unique to you. This means that you can add the color to the ends of your hair without coloring your bangs, and your style will require minimal color maintenance even as your hair grows out and your bangs are trimmed.
4. Add a Blunt Fringe with Lots of Texture
Straight hair doesn’t have to be flat hair, provided you use the right products. Adding bangs to your style is a great way to cut out some of its weight and add shape to a straightforward style. Once you have your bangs in place simply add a texturizing spray or salt spray through the roots and lengths of your hair to create a style with plenty of body and movement. Injecting texture into your hair will give it a modern bohemian look that is bang on trend right now.
5. Long Bangs with Gentle Waves Through the Length
If you have a square-shaped face then long bangs that taper towards the ends are perfect for you, helping to soften your face shape. This is also a style of bangs that will look good if you have a long or oblong shaped face. Ask your hair stylist to graduate the ends of your fringe into the length of your hair to achieve this look. Finish the look by adding gentle waves and soft layers to the length of your hair to create a style that is flattering and super-feminine.

6. Layered Hair With Graduated Bangs
If you have very thick hair then you can inject volume into it and create style and body by adding several short layers, and graduated bangs that will blend into the length of your hair. Blow-dry your style with a large round brush to create bouncy waves, and then spray into place using a strong hold hairspray.
This is a big and bouncy style that is perfect for reducing the weight of your hair, which is ideal for the summer months or those living in hot climates. Add a few subtle foil highlights through the length of your hair to emphasize its body, and make it look stronger and healthier than ever.
7. Half Updos with Gentle Waves
Having long hair with bangs is an incredibly versatile style that can be worn in many ways. For evening events and formal occasions, why not pull your hair up into a simple updo? Comb half of the length of your hair away from your face, and then pin it into a chic and straightforward style. This enables you to still show off the length of your hair and use your layered bangs to frame your face whilst injecting a little glamor into your look.
