If you follow beauty trends, you know bangs are on the cutting edge.

Degraded bangs: for which face?
If you find it hard to tell the difference between layered bangs and tapered bangs, know that this is completely normal! Before going to your hairdresser, you might as well know exactly what a layered fringe consists of. This is a cut from which longer strands of hair emerge. The gradient can be adopted on short bangs, long, straight or on the side. A real master key!
Another real advantage of degraded bangs: it adapts to all faces ! This is thanks to the longer locks that delicately frame the face. By growing little by little, these long strands will even end up blend in completely with your lengths. We find this phenomenon particularly with the curtain fringe to which we devoted an article. Inspired by the 70s, it was already the hair signature of Brigitte Bardot. Today, it can be seen on all heads, all styles and on any occasion. ! Note that we like it rather long, layered, both voluminous and light for a very successful retro chic look.

It is rather easy to comb and does not require a visit to the hairdresser every week. We advise you to do not strip it yourself, because it requires a chisel and specific know-how.
However, if you absolutely want to do it at home, make your cut on dry hair. You see the final result live and can make the necessary changes as needed. Start by tying your hair, leaving only the front strands free which will be used to make your degraded bangs. Then start to cut the bit using the staking technique.

Little tip: avoid hair straighteners which produces an absolutely unnatural “wand” effect. On the other hand, you can using and overusing dry shampoo so that it does not grease too quickly!
If your hair is rather thin and / or straight, do not hesitate to add more volume to your layered bangs by creping lightly or using a texturizing spray. If, on the contrary, you have thick and / or curly hair, use a styling wax in order to better control the material and avoid the appearance of unsightly frizz.
Maintenance side: nothing very trying! A light cut every 3 to 4 weeks is more than enough to keep all the style of the layered bangs.
