Bangs are not just for women. There are plenty of mens hairstyles with bangs that are now gaining popularity because more and more men now realize the importance of looking good. Here are some of the most popular hairstyles with bangs that work great on guys.
Side-Swept Bangs: A lot of male celebs now sport side swept bangs which are great for guys who want a hairstyle that is easy to maintain and will not require frequent trips to the salon for a trim. Side swept bangs are great for those who want to keep their hair long. This is also great for guys who have naturally curly or wavy hair. Curly bangs are fresh and great for summer but guys can always iron the bangs to keep them straight.
For side swept bangs to be effective they must be grown to a length that will make them easy to sweep to the side. Men who want to sport this style should wear their hair short to avoid looking unkempt especially if they want to keep their bangs wavy. Experts recommend going for smooth and straight bangs for formal occasions. For casual days, the bangs can still look gorgeous in the hair's natural texture and can be kept in shape using a setting cream or soft hold hairspray. This style is also great for hair with dark and light streaks which add more definition and depth to the style.
Parted in the Middle: The parted hairstyle used to be big in the late 90s when it was worn by virtually every boyband member who sported long-ish locks. Parted bangs are great for men with lighter hair and dark roots. To get the effect of parted bangs the hair must be long, about 2 inches in length. The hair is parted clean down the middle to have the hair on both sides forming an arc on each side. Longer hair needs more care, however, so regular conditioning is required for any guy who wants to sport this hairstyle.
Blunt Bangs: Blunt bangs are great for men with long face shapes since the bangs can frame the face and make it appear shorter and rounder. Blunt bangs look great when the rest of the hair is also cut short. Most men like to keep their bangs at a shorter length, usually an inch over the eyebrows, but blunt bangs also work when they are longer as long as they do not touch the eyebrows. It is recommended to allow a bit of forehead to show in between the bangs and the eyebrows to give more definition to the eyes.
Blunt bangs are not strictly blunt, however. The row of bangs can be trimmed using a razor or trimming shears to give the bangs an uneven, more interesting texture. Blunt bangs are also great for men who have dark hair.
