The Fringe Trends Replacing Curtain Bangs
Curtain bangs made headlines last year because of their ability to look flattering on almost anyone. This year, curtain bangs had an upgrade with new shapes and finishes that can be tailored for every hair type. If you’re still wondering if bangs are right for your face shape and hair type, take a peek at some of the top fringe trends of 2023.
The Top Bang Trends of 2023
Deemed “the new curtain bang,” bottleneck bangs, this hybrid fringe shape blends traditional curtain bang with a fuller straight bang. This creates a fuller section in the middle with wispy touches on the sides. If you’re looking for a way to soften your straight fringe or even grow them out, this is an ideal option for you.
70s Curtain Fringe
Swoopy, swishy, and feathered, the finished shape gives us hints of Farrah Fawcett fringe without the total commitment. The big difference between curtain fringe and 70s curtain fringe is the length of the bang section. The 70s curtain fringe has a much longer silhouette that could easily be tucked back behind the ears or pulled into a ponytail. The shortest layer falls below the cheekbone for a relaxed finish.
The butterfly bangs rose to popularity as a part of the butterfly cut, but in 2023, we love the fringe as a standalone feature. The big takeaway from this cut is supremely blended layers which is exactly what the bangs are all about. Butterfly bangs are a layered fringe trend that has a feathered finish. The length can be tailored based on your hair type and face shape. The only rule is the softer the blending, the better!
Sexy, sultry and eye-skimming — Bardot bangs are inspired by the iconic Brigitte Bardot and feature a rounded, 60s-worthy finish, full of volume and bounce. Bardot bangs feature a mid-length fringe that falls at eye level and swoops generously to the sides. The big difference between curtain fringe and Bardot bangs is that they have a very defined part and a heavier weight line to create a more dramatic shape.
Whether you’re new to bangs or are looking for a way to update your current fringe situation, always consult with your stylist about the best options for your hair type and texture.
