What are curtained bangs?
Why this strange name? Simply because curtain bangs consist of two strands swept over each side of the face… like a curtain! Technically, it should be cut slightly shorter between the eyebrows and be a little rounded at the temples. If it makes a comeback this fall or winter, it is not a new trend. As early as the ’70s, Brigitte Bardot popularized this fringe, which was very quickly adopted and copied. On the other side of the Atlantic, it was Farah Fawcett who democratized this hairstyle. Today, several celebrities have made their trademark like Monica Bellucci, even though she changed her head this fall. Among them, are Alexa Chung, Zooey Deschanel, Caroline De Maigret, or Georgia May Jagger – who looks strangely like Brigitte Bardot young. Even Caroline Receveur has adopted it for a while.
The curtained bangs for which types of hair?
Straight hair, as well as curly or wavy hair, can adopt.
Retro curtain bangs are quite adaptable, but very curly hair will have a hard time getting a perfect result. In terms of density, thick or medium hair is ideal. In the case of fine hair, it is enough to work the matter and to bring the volume. Finally, it suits all morphologies and softens even the angles of square faces.

The curtain fringe enhances young faces but also perfectly accompanies older faces since it softens marked features, emphasizes the looks, and camouflages wrinkles (forehead, crow’s feet…). Less constraining than a straight fringe, it requires less maintenance and fewer hair appointments!

Curtain bangs have the advantage of softening square faces because they surround the face and break up angular features. But it also goes very well to round faces that it lengthens a little, provided that it stops just at the level of the eyebrows and is a little tapered.
