FAQ Icon
What are baby bangs?

This is a name for super short, straight bangs that graze the top of the forehead. They were made popular by Bettie Page in the 1950s.

What are other names for baby bangs?

They are also called baby fringe, micro fringe, micro bangs, and cropped bangs.

Can I pull off baby bangs?

While some people look amazing with baby bangs, not everyone can pull them off. And if that upsets you, remember that even Beyoncé was mocked for her short bangs. The best option is to start with longer, softer bangs (you can always go shorter) and add a lot of texture. This will soften the face and will likely be more flattering.

Are short bangs in style for 2021?

Yes. During the quarantine, many people resorted to cutting their own hair, giving birth to the short bangs hair trend of 2020-2021.

Loving your blog. Just had my hair cut yesterday for the first time since the pandemic began. I am almost 75 years young and live in an assisted living facility. Our stylist left when quarantine went into effect, so THE stylist who cut my hair this time was unfamiliar with my HAIR, which seems to be growing finer and thinner by the year. It has retained its natural color with very little gray. The STYLIST did VERY little TEXTURIZING, so THE cut looks harsh. I did purchase a styling product to make my hair look thicker, but i don't know how to soften the LOOK. Any suggestions??
