Neither a complete fringe, nor 100% layered, your locks will look great with this side section of hair. Let's zoom in on long, side-swept bangs: a timeless, hybrid haircut.
Can't decide between long bangs or layers?
If you're not sure about whether to opt for bangs or a layered cut on your long hair, there is a perfect happy medium (a side part is obligatory though): side-swept bangs, or a side section of hair. Super subtle, this cut gives shape and movement to your hair thanks to its subtle asymmetric effect.
For those who want to change their look
According to L'Oréal Professionnel hairstylist Delphine Courteille, this side section of hair is the best way to manage "growing out your bangs", although they will need a little styling so that they blend in gradually like a naturally-layered section of hair. This style is also an option for those who are quite happy with their bangs, but who are looking to shake up their look from time to time.
To accompany your slightly wavy, side-swept bangs, leaving your hair straight is not an option: you need volume and, for that, a visit to the salon is in order. Hairspray is simply not enough to recreate this seventies/eighties vibe. To ensure your locks and side-swept bangs don't lack panache, barrel brushes and a blow-dryer are your bffs!
