Zooey Deschanel, Alexa Chung, and Bella Thorne have refreshed their looks with this pretty trend. Center-parted bangs are a great option if you’re transitioning from a straight heavy fringe to a side sweep, growing out a short bang, or looking for a low maintenance, feature-framing option. The middle split and slightly imperfect finish lend a sexy bohemian vibe to this brow-dusting accent. Bangs perform many functions from disguising prominent foreheads to emphasizing cheekbones, but many women avoid them for fear of maintenance and styling challenges. The tousled finish of this bang requires little effort and the parting pushes hair to the sides for long-lasting shape that is easy to grow out.

Side-swept bangs are a staple of feminine sexiness that draw attention to the eyes with a flattering, asymmetrical shape. Swingy fringes look great with a variety of lengths, but in this cut the swooping front becomes the focal point. Tapered sides and short length overall place the face framing front at center stage. The effect is dramatic but soft, especially when paired with a pale blonde shade. The light color adds to the diffused feeling of the shape; blurring the transition from short to long. Get this graceful cut in a few simple steps. — Laura Martin
