The thing about curtain bangs is that they look good on everyone, as long as they’re done right. They flatter, highlight and conceal what you want, refine your haircut and elevate your style.
Combine tailor-made bangs with a type of bob that works for you, and you get a fresh, flattering hairstyle that’s uniquely yours. Get started by taking a look at all the ways you can pair a bob with curtain bangs.

Sometimes blunt cuts tend to look too heavy, and just a few shorter strands around the face make a huge difference.
