Of all the many hair trends, adding bangs – be it in the form of a full, baby or choppy– can quickly update your look. Whether you’ve got straight hair, curls or waves, here are some perfect bang styles rocked by beautiful dark skin celebrities to inspire you.
Read on to discover the best bangs in all lengths and style…
1. Messy Bun With Bangs:
Rihanna’s hairstyle at the premiere of Home was pretty much what we’d love to recreate every day: it’s simple, fresh, messy and the right amount of girly. A great bun for every occasion, to mimic the hairstyle, begin by applying hair thickening spray or dry shampoo. Now to get that rougher look, scrunch your hair before twisting it into a messy knot. You can balance the look by pulling out your bangs.
2. Curly Hair Feathered Bangs:
Never underestimate the power of Niecy Nash’s big curls with feathered bangs. For the American comedian, this is one of the most flattering and sophisticated beauty looks – a dab of nude lipgloss on her mauve lips, bronze make-up and a feline flick to accentuate her eyes.
3. Wavy Hair With Soft Bangs:
Naomi Campbell’s long-length wavy hair has got us seriously considering a trip to our hairstylist. With long face-framing bangs, elegant inward flick and carefree tousled mane, this is one of our favourite hair looks of the moment. To duplicate Naomi’s look, use a texturizing spray for an incredible volume and sexy texture, and then take a curling tong and create an inward curl. Once done, mist with Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray for that glossy shine.
4. Side-Swept Straight Hair:
Back to her natural straight hair and sporting sleek side-swept bangs, this is one of our favourite ever Padma Lakshmi’s hair looks. The American cookbook author, actress, model and television host, masters minimalist glamour by teaming her sleek, straight tresses with rosy cheeks and mauve lips.
5. Side-Swept Pixie:
Halle Berry once again proves the power of a classic pixie at the Global Icon Award. Frame your face with a long side-swept fringe; this will not only emphasise your wide eyes, but will also help you highlight your cheekbones. Take a cue from Halle and pair smokey eyes and peachy lips to play up the boyish look of the short cut.
6. Piece-Y Pixie:
Singer Solange Knowles’ piece-y, layered pixie reveals a quick and simple way of achieving a funky look at home. First, use a pomade to make sure your hair is poker straight. Then, straighten your hair with the help of a flat iron and finish with a good covering of hairspray to keep the look in place all evening.
7. Side-Swept Bangs:
Oh, boy! If you thought Beyonce’s long curly hair was going to be the singer’s big hair moment this year, you were completely wrong. Queen B decided to go all quick-change on us with straight, smooth hair with side-swept bangs – gorgeous! To maintain the look, apply a good amount of Umberto Dry Texture Spray and give your hair a lot of texture. Once done, take a flat iron and straighten your hair and hold it in place by spritzing Charles Worthington Shine Booster All Over Gloss Spray.
8. Side-Swept Bob:
Mary J Blige showed us that the one side long bob is still very much in fashion with this elegant red carpet style. By flat ironing her blonde hair, the American singer makes this often casual hairstyle perfect for the evening, with her side-swept bangs adding a modern edge.
9. Side-Swept Bun:
We would like to crown Zoe Saldana “Queen of the laid-back style”. Copy this easy-breezy but high-impact look by adding subtle waves, side-swept bangs, wispy tendrils and lots of shine. A gorgeous brown hairstyle that requires minimum effort – we love!
10. Half Updo With Soft Bangs:
If you’re looking for that perfect summer hairstyle, this is it. Channel Paula Patton by styling a subtle eye makeup with thick lashes and an extra glossy, peachy lip for warm and glamorous party season beauty.
