As we head into spring, we're finding fresh inspiration in a new set of eye-grazing bangs. Hardly surprising, given a fringe can transform a run-of-the-mill hairstyle into one that's directional and cool with just a few snips of the scissors.
What is surprising, though, is that hairstylists are predicting that wispy see-through bangs will steal the crown from curtain bangs this season as the most in-demand cut.
In short, see-through bangs are like the bittier cousin of heavy, shaggy curtain bangs. They still involve a full fringe, but this time the hair is thinned-out to reveal gaps and more scattered, feathery pieces to frame the face.
What are see-through bangs?
“See-through bangs have been trending among Asian women for the last few years but are also slowly becoming a trend in Europe and the US,” he says, noting that many of his clients who originally slavishly asked for curtain bangs have made the switch to see-through bangs.
Does everyone suit see-through bangs?
The easy answer is yes. “It's not so much about the shape of your face, but you need to take your forehead into consideration,” says Luke Hersheson, hair stylist and CEO of Hershesons.
