Last Updated on April 17, 2023

After seeing it on the likes of Jenna Ortega, Sydney Sweeney and Lily Collins, I can confidently say that see-through bangs is definitely one hairstyle to watch out for this year. 

This one has been around longer than you’d imagine, and it’s not without good reason. This hairstyle flatters nearly all face shapes, no matter the length.

Many celebrity haircuts have been heavily inspired by the iconic hairstyles of the past, with a significant resurgence of 1990s cuts. Unsurprising really, what with the rise in 90s fashion.

One notable feature of these throwback trims is extreme layering (remember the octopus and wolf cuts?), coupled with the addition of wispy bangs. 

If you haven’t seen Amazon Prime’s Daisy Jones & the Six yet, firstly where have you been? But this show offers not only serious fashion inspo, but also a plethora of beautiful bangs styles on key characters Daisy (played by Riley Keough) and Karen Sirko (played by Suki Waterhouse).

I know cutting a fringe is a risk, but it might well be worth it!

Whether you’re feeling daring and want a bold, short trim with choppy layers, or prefer a timeless, long hairstyle with soft, face-framing layers like Gwyneth Paltrow, adding see-through bangs may be the best decision you’ve made all year.

What face shape is good for see-through bangs?

The perfect canvas for a dreamy set of see-through bangs and light, wispy layers is an oval-shaped face with long, straight hair. These gentle fringes effortlessly frame the face, accentuating your natural features with an elegant touch.

But you don’t have to have straight hair to have a fringe. Wavy locks like Sydney Sweeney’s work so well for this look too.

Heart-shaped faces suit this style so well too, like Sweeney and Lily Collins.

How do I make my bangs see-through?

While heavy fringes are made by cutting more hair into the fringe, it’s the opposite for see-through bangs. Your hairdresser doesn’t need to cut too much hair into your fringe, which also works quite well if you decide you hate it later!

Do bangs make you look younger?

Cutting bangs into your hairstyle is an easy way to achieve a more youthful appearance. 

The right set of bangs can cleverly contour your face, making it look smaller and more delicate, which in turn gives off a more youthful vibe.
