Curtain bangs ideas: the ’70s-inspired style that’s back


We thought we’d never see the day, but curtain bangs are back with a, well, bang. And while the modern resurgence isn’t a carbon copy of the original 1970s style, curtain bangs do have a cool, nostalgic vibe that’s almost certainly part of the appeal.

Just as the name suggests, curtain bangs are slightly grown-out bangs that are parted in the middle, like a pair of curtains. Because they’re a bit longer than your typical fringe, curtain bangs tend to make easy hairstyles compared with classic bangs hairstyles and are less of a commitment in terms of upkeep and daily styling.”I have had curtain bangs requests from so many clients, with more celebrities trying out this style and it trending on social media,” says Fekkai stylist Elidona Pjetraj. “Because they are cut purposely to frame your face, the growth is very natural and effortless.”

As a visual reference, the most iconic curtain bangs of all time belong to original Charlie’s Angel Farrah Fawcett and French pin-up Brigitte Bardot with her timeless feathered cut. But the style didn’t die out with disco, hair icons of every era, from Jennifer Lopez to the Duchess of Cambridge, have experimented with this look at some point.
