Can't commit to a fringe? Try 'chin bangs'

The easy going cousin of the curtain fringe

BEAUTYcrew Content Producer / August 02 2022

The word ‘fringe’ can scare a lot of people. And understandably, when you consider the sheer amount of regretful haircuts that include those fear-inducing brow-grazing lengths.

For those of us with a little more courage than most, we’ve followed Matilda Djerf’s lead and cropped our strands into curtain bangs. But if that is even a step too far in your opinion, there’s a new style on the block that’s perfectly suited to your tentative attitude. 

Introducing: chin bangs. As the name suggests, this particular offspring of the fringe is longer than most, stroking the sharp line of your jaw to create a chin-level front-layer that frames the face and adds body too. 

Paired with a blow dry, chin bangs have the capacity to turn limp, lifeless hair into a headful of bouncy, Victoria Secret model hair. Just ask Sydney Sweeney. The blonde bombshell recently reinvigorated her silky locks with a wave of cascading chin bangs.
