How to Bring Back Blunt Bangs in 2022
January 13, 2022
If you’re looking for a way to make an impactful change to your hair without chopping it into a pixie or dying it a bold new color, blunt bangs are the way to go. No longer relegated to twee 2010s pop stars and Tumblr moodboards, heavy bangs are making a major comeback this year. They work with every hair texture, place emphasis on your eyes and are a great way to switch things up if you’re tired of waiting for your curtain bangs to grow out. Keep reading for our favorite hairstyle to pair with blunt bangs, from trendy shags to sweet and classic bobs.
