6 Alternative Takes on the Curtain Bangs Trend

Center-parted bangs are 2021’s statement fringe.

From tik tok stars to Hollywood darlings, the freshest faces in the beauty sphere are ditching their long layers for the ultra-flattering curtain bang fad. And it’s not hard to see why. This retro fringe fad is understated but ultra-flattering. While we’re always here for a little feathered face-framing, some stylists have been taking this cut to edgier heights. With razor sharp edges, curved-in ends, and micro-middles, alternative curtain bangs are making a splash this season.

Check out 6 alternative takes on the trend below.

1. Micro-Middle Fringe

The curtain bang but make it micro. Going super short in the center of your strands exaggerates the curtain bang gradient in a super chic way.

2. Blunt Curtain Bangs

In the midst of a blunt bang grow out? A simple split down the middle takes your eyebrow-skimming fringe to a fabulous face-framing place.

4. 90s Volume

Think curtain bangs are just a 70s aesthetic? Think again. A little bit of added volume (easily achieved with a set of old school curlers) takes this fluffy fringe into an entirely different decade.
