Styling Tip: Curtain Bangs with Eric Fisher

WATCH VIDEO

What are curtain bangs?

Curtain bangs are bangs that are parted down the middle, framing your face on each side. They are usually longer on the sides and shorter in the center with wispy ends, giving them a laidback, 70's vibe.  Curtain bangs look good on straight hair, curly hair or wavy hair.  In addition to texture consideration, curtain bangs work best on medium to thick hair.

How To:

Create a deep "V" section from recession to recession.  Comb the hair straight down then twist the section in the middle.  Cut this section from edge to edge.  Evaluate your length, its important not to cut curtain bangs too short.  Soften the edges using a point cutting technique.  

Styling curtain bangs requires a good blow dry.  First blow-dry and roll your fringe forward and under. Then, once dry, roll it around the brush backwards – away from your face – and let it set and cool down on the brush. Once taken out (this will look a bit ‘80s) part your fringe and smooth over with your dryer and brush in a flicking motion away from your face.
