She got more than 3.6 million comments in the first several hours of posting the selfie. Ariana Grande also styled this amzing hairstyle in her music video, making it look way covetable.

How to Style Curtain Bangs?

How you style your curtain bangs will depend on a few things. First of all, would you like your bangs angled or chopped? If you’d like them chopped, then the bangs should be blunt compared to the rest of your hair strands. If you’d like them angled, then your hair should naturally fringe up on the sides and meet the bangs. The resulting looks for both variations should be great.

Second of all, you will need to decide how short or long you would like your curtain bangs to be relative to the rest of your hair. The length you finally settle on will depend on the current length of your hair and how intense or extreme you’d like your bangs to look.

The last thing you’ll need to figure out is how you’d like to part your hair. Most curtain bang hairstyles boast middle parts, but you could feel free to include a side part. We’ll take a look at a few examples of that in the list below.

How to Maintain Curtain Bangs?

If you’ve ever styled a variation of bangs before but hated the upkeep requirements, then these haircuts are just the thing for you.  Unlike your typical bangs, curtain bangs do not need to get trimmed every week or two. You can even go as long as six weeks with these, and that’s not even the best part.

The part that impressed me the most is that if they get a little too long in between your trim sessions or in case you opt to grow them out to their full length, they will easily blend into the rest of your hair and become perfect face-framing layers.
