Adding fringe to curly hair might seem intimidating, but choosing the right style of bangs can dramatically improve your look. A few thought-out pieces around your face will add interest to your style, flatter your features and complement your curls.
Take a look at these examples of short curly hair with bangs hairstyles to get an idea of the variety of options available.
1. Curly Hair With Bangs And Layers
This haircut is balanced thanks to the slightly longer bangs: they naturally follow the shape from the crown, then frame the face.
2. Vivid Blue Curly Taper
Bright blue ringlets cut above the eyebrows are guaranteed to draw attention. To get the perfect length when cutting curly bangs and avoid going too short, cut them while your hair is dry and your curls already look the way you wear them.

5. Blunt Curly Bob With Bangs
Triangle hair used to be something you definitely did not want for your curls, but times have changed. When your hair is cut deliberately, a triangle shape looks structural instead of accidental.

8. Fade With Curly Hair
Super-short curly styles are popular with all genders because you still have the option to showcase your gorgeous curls if you keep your hair longer on top.
