You kind of want bangs, but you’re worried you might regret it? Get wispy bangs.
This cute style of fringe is the easy way to test if bangs are for you—you get the full effect of a bangs hairstyle, but they’re easy to blend and hide as they grow out if you decide they’re not for you. Oh, and they’re also super flattering and versatile.
Here are 50 fun, low-maintenance hairstyles with wispy bangs that might make you go for it.
1. Barely-There Wispy Bangs
Even if your bangs are nothing thicker than a few pieces skimming your forehead, they’ll completely change your look—you can go for edgy or soft, depending on how you choose to style them.
2. Fluffy Wispy Bangs
There are lots of ways to style wispy bangs—this fluffy, ’90s look creates a soft, romantic look that goes really well with layered hair and ends curled inwards.

4. Fine And Eye-Grazing
When cutting wispy bangs, avoid going too deep so that they don’t end up too thick. Find the starting point by placing a comb on the crown of your head and the place where your head starts to curve toward the forehead is the sweet spot for perfect bangs.
5. Straight Wispy Bangs
You also don’t want to cut your bangs too wide on the forehead if you want them to be wispy: the arch of the eyebrows should be the furthest from the center you go.
