How to Cut Middle Part Bangs

How to Cut Middle Part Bangs

Step 1: If your hair is straight, dampening your hair could be helpful. However, if your hair is naturally curly, it is best to leave it dry.

Step 2: Part your hair in the middle. Then decide how wide you want your bangs to be and once you take the bangs section into your hand, you’ll notice that a triangular shape has formed. Make sure that the triangle is symmetrical.

Step 3: Separate the rest of the hair from the bangs by tying it into a ponytail.

Step 4: The rest depends on the style of bangs you’re going for. If you’re going for shorter bangs, try to make them as straight as possible, and if the bangs go below your eyebrows or eyes cut them diagonally.

Step 5: Blow-dry and style your bangs. Check if there are some strands that need fixing.

Middle part bangs don’t always suit a round face and that is why styling them could be tricky. But if you have a round-shaped face and really want to make the middle part bangs work for you, here are a few tips:

Tip 1: Use thinning scissors: Layering your bangs is key here. They need to be a little bit messy in order to work.

Tip 2: Don’t cut them in a crescent shape, as that will only emphasize the shape of your face even more.

Tip 3: Don’t make them too thick as that won’t compliment your soft features.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are curtain bangs and middle part bangs the same thing?

Curtain bangs got their name because they frame your face like an elegant curtain. Unlike blunt bangs, these bangs are a bit longer and part down the middle, starting at your scalp’s frontline. 

You don’t have to have a middle part to rock it, and middle-parted bangs are not all necessarily curtain bangs. 

Can I get middle part bangs if I have a cowlick?

Yes. Cowlicks are a common hair issue that we all loathe. Those kinky, lifted roots can be downright infuriating. The good news is that middle parting can help you style your cowlicks with bangs instead of fighting against them.

Does wearing a middle part age you?

No, quite the opposite. If you want to inject some youthful energy into your look, middle part bangs could be just the solution for you.

It is a classic, low-maintenance look that offers a fresh style change. Center parting and bangs help shape your face and subtract years from your look.  

Can I curl my middle part bangs?

Middle part bangs can look great with a curly style; it just takes a little styling to pull it off.  For an effortless curled bangs style, you want to start by parting your hair down the middle. Then you simply blow dry your bangs using a 1-inch round brush. 

As you blow-dry, twist the brush through your bangs to the ends. Finally, feather your bangs and style the rest of your hair.

What hair length is suitable for middle part bangs?

These bangs are adaptable enough for any hair length, long, medium, or short.  People with short hair can add shape and dimension with these, while long-haired people can balance the length by drawing attention to their eyes. 

Which face shape is perfect for middle part bangs?

The oval face shape is considered to be the perfect face shape for almost any hairstyle, and middle part bangs are no exception to this rule. However, if cut and styled properly, other face shapes can look great with the middle part bangs as well.

If the parted bangs are layered or cut in a crescent shape, they can complement the square-shaped face really nicely, softening its harshness really nicely.

For heart-shaped faces, it is important to either leave the bangs a bit longer so that you can part them in the middle entirely or at least to leave them a bit longer on the sides so that the forehead would appear less wide.

Can short bangs be middle parted?

This depends mostly on how short we’re talking about. It would be really hard, and it would require a lot of hair products to part in short bangs anywhere. It would also look unnatural and probably not so flattering. However, short bangs could, of course, look beautiful if the rest of the hair behind it was parted in the middle.

Hopefully, you’ve learned something new about middle part bangs reading this article, and hopefully, you’re now less confused about which style matches which face shape and inspired by the beautiful hairstyle ideas.
