Long and Layered Hairstyles with Bangs

Long, layered hair is a beautiful, feminine style, but can often look a little too long if it’s not cut in the right way. Avoid being that girl — you know, Long Hair Girl — by considering long and layered hairstyles with bangs to break things up.

Blunt bangs are a fun choice for long and layered hairstyles. Look to New Girl’s Hannah Simone or the New Girl herself, Zooey Deschanel, for bang inspiration. If you’ve got a square-shaped face, blunt bangs that are long and eye-grazing will work best for you, rather than a super blunt cut that may make you look boxy.

Based on your face shape, deep side-swept bangs might work best for you. This look, seen on stars like Emma Stone and Carrie Underwood, is one of the more versatile of the long and layered hairstyles with bangs. Side-swept bangs are usually long enough that they can be pulled back and camouflaged with other layers. This style looks great on girls with round faces. The sideswept look will balance out your cheekbones. It also draws attention to your eyes, which is helpful for girls with heart-shaped faces.
