4 Must-Have Side Swept Bangs

Side swept bangs are a growing trend because they are easy to style and fit into almost any cut. Many celebrities, such as Reese Witherspoon, show off their trendy bangs everyday. This practical addition to any hair makes the face pop and highlights key features of the face and hair. Incorporating side swept bangs into a hairstyle helps to add personality to any look.


To style these bangs, simply brush the bangs to the side. Then use your favorite holding product to keep them in place throughout the day. Strong-holding hairspray works well for this purpose, but some find that a holding moose adds extra body to the look as well. Blow drying the hair can also help to keep the bangs off to the side of the face. Should the bangs be long, bobby pins can be used to keep the hair tucked away under longer strands without interfering with your sense of fashion.

Long and Luscious

Side swept bangs are the perfect addition to a long, wavy hairstyle. The bangs are tucked under the long strands of hair to create a unique look. Unlike other styles that frame the face, the bangs add illusion and cover part of the eye. This helps to create a fashionable style and add a one-of-a-kind trait to the long locks. Smooth out each wave or curl to create a defined look or tease them to create the popular messy look.

Short and Punky

Adding a neutral style to a punk hairstyle helps to make the look cuter and make the person seem more approachable. There is plenty of potential for a side swept bang when dealing with short hairstyles. Small spikes or curls can look great on their own, but adding the sweep adds definition to the style. The look below is best done with a perm, but a curling iron can also create this perfect combination of punk and sweet.

Ponytails are never just for little kids and soccer moms. This glam style below proves that a ponytail, with the addition of the side swept bangs, can look stunning. The ponytail can be worn completely out or tucked back into the accessory to create a bushy look. Add even more personality to the look by keeping a few long locks out of the ponytail and letting them drape onto the face. Don’t forget the pink scrunchee if you are hoping to copy the gorgeous look below!

 Practical Style

Those seeking a more practical style, such as Reese Witherspoon’s, should try incorporating the bangs with a strait hairstyle. Witherspoon has been spotted with both long and short hairstyles, but all of them have sported a unique bang. The more practical look will cover most of the face, rather than a section of it, and be used to make a frame. On a more formal occasion, simply style the hair however you see fit and comb the side bangs straight.
