Summer is the time of year to let your hair down...literally. If you're looking for a quick way to change your look, why not consider cutting bangs? After all, fringe isn't just trending in the fashion world. Adding bangs instantly refreshes your style without completely altering your look. Not sure which bangs to cut? We're sharing three popular styles of bangs below.

Curtain Bangs

1970s-inspired curtain bangs-a middle-parted variation of a classic, side-swept fringe-are making a major comeback this year. The look evokes a grown-out vibe, and is perfect for girls with wavy or curly hair that want to wear bangs, but don't want to straighten them out each morning. They look even more effortless when blended into a few face-framing layers.

Micro-Fringe

Baby bangs are another retro look staging a resurgence this summer. This modern take on the 50s pin-up style sit just above the eyebrow and require frequent trims. Don't attempt to trim them at home though, your stylist will be able to best determine the length that's perfect for your face shape.

Long, Wispy Bangs

Fine fringe is lightweight and perfect for summer. You can have your hairstylist cut your bangs to your desired length and make them wispy-but we love this look a little long. Worn slightly past the eyebrows, these bangs are both youthful and effortless.

Expert Tips

Whatever bangs you choose make sure you have the proper tools on-hand. A little lightweight hairspray goes a long way in keeping fringe frizz-free. On particularly humid days, keep bobby pins in tow so you can instantly pin or braid back your bangs to keep them out of your face.
