If you’ve never heard of baby bangs, you need to check them out. This style, also called “micro bangs,” “cropped bangs,” or “mini fringe,” is a big trend in 2019, with everyone from celebrities to stylists stepping out in baby bangs recently. Even if you haven’t heard of them, you may fall in love once you’ve seen them. When you have a great stylist, your baby bangs can look like a play on a pixie cut, making them an interesting and unique hairstyle. However, what goes into the baby bang look?

Your Face Shape

This should be an important part of your decision to get baby bangs. This style has a very profound effect on the way your face looks, which means that your initial face shape should be heavily considered when you’re thinking about whether to get bangs. Square or heart faces are most likely to look unflattering with baby bangs, as the bangs will tend to emphasize the sharp angles of your face, rather than the curves. If you have a long or sharp jaw, it’s also more likely to emphasize your jaw. You can still get baby bangs with these face shapes, but talk to your stylist about what it’ll end up looking like.

Your General Hairstyle

Baby bangs tend to work best with short cropped hairstyles, but that’s definitely not the only way you can wear them. The most common baby bangs hairstyles are pixie cuts, bobs, and shoulder-length cuts, although you can see even longer styles on some celebrities. Another important part of the picture is whether your hair is curly or straight. Although straight and wavy hair make up the bulk of baby bang styles, people with curly hair have managed to make baby bangs work for them. Make sure you discuss your ideal haircut with your stylist, not just the bangs.

Your Styling Products

With many normal bang styles, you can run a comb through them and be on your way. However, because baby bangs need to fall a certain way to perfectly frame your face and the rest of your hair, you’ll need to maintain them at home. You need to make sure you have the right styling products if you want your baby bangs to look right even after you get home, and that means you’ll want to buy salon products. Ask your stylist what he or she uses to get the perfect look, and ask whether you should buy the same thing or something a bit more user-friendly. Your stylist will be able to point you toward the right product.

Your Maintenance Schedule

Bangs tend to be very difficult to maintain, because even just an inch of hair is very noticeable when it comes to bangs. With baby bangs, it’s even more important. Once they’ve grown out a little, they’re just regular bangs and don’t really carry that “micro” feel to them anymore. On the one hand, that means if you decide you don’t like them, you don’t have to wait long for them to grow out and become traditional bangs. On the other hand, if you want to maintain baby bangs at that length, you’ll need to get a cut every 3-4 weeks.

When you’re getting your hair cut that frequently, it’s important to find a personal stylist. That way, he or she will learn what you want and how your hair performs. To find that stylist, try Ogle School. At one of the Ogle School salons, you’ll be able to receive all sorts of services, including cuts, dyes, and styles.
