Micro bangs haircut trend inspiration for fall
Every year as fall approaches, we think about new ways to refresh our look and we keep coming back to the same question: should I have bangs? Last year, curtain bangs came out on top as the most popular style of bangs, but that could change very soon. Beauty professionals have started to share this season’s biggest hair trends, and a much bolder style is gaining ground: micro bangs.
You may be familiar with this type of haircut that grazes the forehead – micro bangs, also known as baby bangs, fall above your eyebrows. “They’re known to be super blunt and short, but there are actually many types of them,” Devin Toth, hairstylist at SCK Salon in New York City, told POPSUGAR. “They can be curly, curtained, choppy, wispy, and so on.”
You have seen the style of many of your favorite celebrities over the past few years. Zendaya wore micro bangs at the 2018 Met Gala (and 2017, for that matter), Emma Roberts tried them on at Critics’ Choice that same year, Lupita Nyong’o wore beaded micro bangs at Paris Fashion Week in 2020, and Halle Berry shook eyes, albeit temporarily, at the 2021 Oscars.
“Micro bangs can add sparkle to any hairstyle and work on all hair types – super curly, straight, updo, pixie, long, short, thick, thin, braids, afro,” said Toth. The list is lengthened increasingly.
