Middle-Parted Feathery Bangs
Middle-parted, feathery bangs are the fringe of the season and Dakota Johnson has a set we're envious of. This peekaboo fringe splits naturally and tapers to a longer layer, which frames the face beautifully.
Middle-Parted Straight Bangs
This wispy, convertible style seen on the Blugirl Spring 2016 runway is so now. Center-parted bangs like these are ideal for girls with fine hair.
Micro Bangs With Long Hair
Model Yulia Ermakova's micro bangs made a statement on the Celine Fall 2015 runway. This edgy look can be high maintenance, so it works best on naturally straight hair.
Kiki Willems' choppy micro fringe from the Saint Laurent Spring 2015 runway is a piece-ier version of the baby bangs trend. This is a hairstyle with bangs that screams 90s riot grrrl attitude.
Micro Bangs With a Bob Hairstyle
This retro-inspired bob is a nerdy-chic way to rock super short bangs. The slightly half-moon shape accentuates all the facial features, but especially her eyebrows.
Eyelash Grazing Bangs
Model Mae Mei Lapres' extra long, blunt fringe on the Carven Fall 2015 runway is an excellent choice for girls with long, oval faces. The lightly mussed style plays up the cool-girl vibe.

These eyelash-grazing bangs were spotted on the Blumarine Spring 2016 runway. This ever so slightly rounded fringe adds maximum impact to this year's on-trend long bob.

Medium Hairstyles With Bangs
Curtain bangs, which hang just above the jawline, can work as a transitional look for those growing out a shorter fringe or experimenting with getting bangs. We love the way Sienna Miller's undone wave accentuates her cheekbones.

Kate Middleton proved that curtain bangs are the most elegant of all fringe hairstyles when she gave the trend the royal treatment. Her parted, cheekbone-length fringe softens half-up hairstyles and looks especially romantic in an updo.
Face-Framing Curtain Bangs
We couldn't make a list of the best hairstyles with bangs without including Alexa Chung's famously unfussy fringe. The It girl's bangs are always evolving, but one of our favorite styles is this face-framing fringe.

Ombre works for hairstyles with bangs, too — just ask Grimes. The singer did a bit of a style switch-up recently, sweeping her grown-out mini bangs off her forehead for a more carefree style, but keeping the punky color play she's known for.

This look from the Burani Spring 2016 runway is a great example of how to work a little rock 'n' roll color into hairstyles with bangs. The model's layered blond fringe was given touches of pink, but the pop of color was limited to the outer edges and underside of her bangs, keeping the look on the approachable side of dramatic.
This sharp pixie is made even more fun with splashes of cobalt and purple added to the long, front-swept fringe. With just a touch of bold color in the longest layer, this hairstyle would be easy to change up as the mood strikes.
Chin-Length Bob With Bangs
Ciara is definitely a hair chameleon, but we still count her chin-length bob with lash-skimming bangs as one of her best looks. The not-too-thin, not-too-thick bangs complemented her refined mane with its high-shine, full-volume blowout.
Bangin' Top Knot
The top knot with bangs is clearly one of this season's biggest party hair trends. Kendall Jenner stopped traffic with this long, piecey fringe and though they turned out to be faux, these edgy bangs made us ready to commit.

Top Knot Updo With Bangs
Karrueche Tran is another of the beauties rocking a towering top knot with bangs. The model's thick, choppy bangs took her artful updo to the next level.
Curly Hairstyles With Bangs
Don't let anyone tell you that curly girls can't have bangs, too! Take a cue from big-haired beauty Ella Eyre and go for sexy, separated tendrils. Just be prepared to style this look every day, as curly bangs are a high-maintenance (but worth the effort) look.

Textured Bangs With Short Hairstyles
Jennifer Hudson's fabulous moptop is another fringe inspiration for textured hair. This statement-making mane is military short on the sides with a crop of glam ringlets coming over the forehead to give the illusion of longer hair.

Textured Lob With Bangs
Textured bangs have been all over the runways recently, too. Model of the moment Mica Arganaraz's signature shaggy lob was on display at the Dries Van Noten Spring 2015 presentation with a wavy, graduated fringe that couldn't be more low maintenance.
Long, Sideswept Fringe
Naomi Campbell's lash-skimming, sideswept fringe simply sweeps us off our feet. With slight variations in length and layering, the supermodel's versatile fringe could work on practically any face shape.

Long, Sideswept Bangs
Sidesweeping fringe like Hailee Steinfeld's is a youthful choice that grows out beautifully when you get bored. Slanted bangs like these also offer an incredibly easy way to give a new frame to your face — just part your bangs on the opposite side when you're ready for a change.

Long, Layered Hairstyles With Sideswept Bangs
Hannah Simone's side bangs are an on-point choice for long, layered hair because the contrast in length isn't quite so drastic. Keep your sideswept fringe glossy with a weightless shine product.
Low Ponytail With Bangs
There are so many options for updos that work with bangs, but Taylor Swift's slick, side-parted pony commands the most attention. The sleek, minimalist style is an expert pairing for bold eye makeup.

Short Hair, Long Bangs
An asymmetrical stacked bob gets a contemporary update from long, spiky bangs. Jada Pinkett Smith recently debuted this fashionable crop with peekaboo fringe and we can't take our eyes off it.

Long, Layered Hair With Bangs
Long-haired ladies often hesitate to go for bangs because if you get sick of them, you know it'll take extra long to grow them out to match the rest of your mane. But Florence Welch's blunt half-moon fringe provides boho hair vibes for days — bangspiration for those with below-the-shoulder cuts.

Long, Wavy Hair With Bangs
Michelle Rodriguez shows off a way for long-haired girls to wear bangs that isn't too drastic. The actress' convertible fringe couldn't be more versatile in the way that it blends effortlessly into her wavy layers and the undone way some wisps fall into her eyes is ultra sexy.

Like all things 70s, shag hairstyles made a comeback on the Spring 2016 runways. The tousled, eyelash-length bangs on this chop from Alexander Wang graduate into rounded, face-framing layers.

Long Shag With Bangs
