The ways in which you can cut bangs is so vast, so encyclopedic, it could merit its own Dr. Seuss poem. You can chop bangs to frame the eyes; you can sweep bangs to one side. You can wear bangs with a bob; you can wear bangs to your job. (Should we keep going? OK.) You can part bangs right down the middle; you can cut bangs till they’re really little. You can snip bangs to just above your brow; the world is your oyster, do you get it now?

It doesn’t stop there either, you see. Fringe can also vary in length and style – O-M-G. The ends can be blunt, curved, curly, or cropped; there are so many options, in fact, this cut cannot be topped. So, how are you to know which bangs haircut to choose? That’s why we’re here: to do the hard part for you.

No matter your celebrity hair inspo, your face shape, or your reason behind “why,” we’re breaking down every type of bang you could possibly try.
