What are now referred to as gender neutral haircuts are what used to be called “boyish.” And boyish haircuts have been around for a long time! Gender neutral haircuts vary, but usually expose the ears and the back of the neck. Keep scrolling for a look at some stylish haircuts that work for you whether you’re male or female.
A new year is a great time to check out new hairstyles. If you’re excited about trying something new with your hairstyle but you aren’t looking for a color job or a drastic chop, hairstyles with bangs might be just the inspiration you need. A hairstyle with bangs can give you just the right amount of change without feeling too drastic. Here are some ideas and things to consider if you’re thinking about cutting bangs.
Hairstyles With Bangs
You may think that bangs are only for people with long, wavy locks. But actually, bangs look great on a variety of hairstyles. You just need to take the time to consider your hair type and face shape, then ask for the right kind of bangs for you. Here are some ideas, as well as things to talk to your stylist about when you’re considering a hairstyle with bangs.
A light bang like this is perfect for you if your hair is long, but you often pull it up in a ponytail or bun. The light fringe is easy, especially if you embrace a bit of a messy look. If you prefer never to look “overdone,” then a face-framing fringe fits the bill.
Bangs that fall straight forward, with more of a blunt edge, are classic bangs. This bang works best if your face is oval-shaped, and your hair is long with plenty of volume to support the look. The downside to classic bangs is that frequent trims keep them looking their best.
For a thicker bang that blends more evenly into the sides of your hair, go for a tapered cut. Tapered bangs are more common because they work on a wider variety of face shapes.
Hairstyles with Longer Bangs
Some of us aren’t fully ready to make the jump from no bangs to full bangs, so this is where a longer bang comes in. Long bangs are easy to sweep to the side or part down the middle–a la Kate Middleton.
Long & Wispy
Not as long as the bangs you can sweep to the side or part down the middle, but longer and lighter so you have options for wearing them down or side swept.
If you thought bangs were one size fits all, now you know better! Which style bang is your favorite?
Are you interested in learning the top hair trends for 2019? You’ve come to the right place! Today’s post has all the information you need. After you read it, you have only to decide which hair trends you want to rock for 2019. Get ready!
Big hair is back!
Believe it or not, big hair is back in a big way for 2019. In fact, according to celebrity stylist Chris Appleton, the bigger the better. Anyone with naturally curly hair deserves to take their place in the spotlight right about now. You get to really embrace the natural state of your hair and let all those curls shine! Amazon has products to help you make the most of your natural curls, including the best-selling DevaCurl One Conditioner.
Go silver instead of platinum.
Hair trends for 2019 include coloring with icy colors like silver. Don’t be afraid of going silver even if you are naturally dark and have dark eyebrows. The color contrast between dark eyebrows and light hair continues to be a top hair trend.
Top hair trends for 2019 dictate that having your stylist add layers to your hair is the way to go. The idea here is to let your hair look like it has texture. Don’t be afraid to let it look a little bit “undone”. Layers lend hair movement and interest, and generally help thick hair be easier to control. You can’t go wrong!
A rainbow of colors
Pops of color in the hair are part of the hair trends for 2019, especially pink. But you’re really not limited. Chat with your stylist to see which colors she thinks you can pull off best, and go for it.
Go a little shorter?
Why not? Blunt bobs are one of the hot hair trends for 2019. We’re already seeing a number of celebrities who have adopted the style, including Hailey Baldwin Bieber and Karlie Kloss. Many of us can get away with this style because it’s flattering for multiple face shapes! The length is easily adjusted to capitalize on your face shape, so talk with your stylist to get it just right for you.
What are your favorite hair trends for 2019?
First, don’t be afraid to ask for help and suggestions from friends, family, and hair stylists. Play around with different looks, find what you like online, and have your stylist match it to your face shape!
If you have a round face but want a short haircut, then go for the pixie cut. In this case, less is more. A bob will just accentuate the roundness of your face, but the pixie cut will downplay the roundness while making you look great!
If you a round face but want a longer medium cut, keep your hair around shoulder level. Experts say that a haircut to the collarbone has a slimming effect and makes your features look much more appealing.
If you have a round face and want a long haircut, then make sure it’s layered! This thins the hair out around your face (where it’s already full), but adds the volume at the end of your hair, which helps balance out the overall fullness!
For a pixie cut with this type of face, keep hair clipped on the sides and around the nape, but make it layered on top. The chopped layers up top help detract from the forehead, giving your face a stunning look!
If you want medium length hair, then try to the collarbone with swooping bangs. The bangs help draw attention away from the strong chin, giving your face a much softer and kinder look!
I’m usually not a fan of bangs, but if you have a heart face and want long hair, bangs are an essential! They even out your harsher facial features and give dimension and contrast to the longer, fuller locks!
Short hair with an oval face looks best in an angular bob. Choose something that hugs tightly to your face and has layer to really accentuate your features.
Medium length hair looks great on an oval face when it’s a sleek and shiny blowout! If possible, layer the hair so that it varies and gives a nice elongating effect to your neck.
With an oval face and longer hair, you want some side-swept bangs. Show off your features by framing them with your hair!
2 parts olive oil
1 part coconut oil
2 ingredients- that’s it!
Of course how much you use will depend on your hair. Since everyone has a different amount of hair, be sure to follow the ratio above and you will have the perfect deep conditioner.
This is the best DIY Deep conditioner that I have used. It works wonders. Here is how I apply it:
I mix the 2 ingredients above. Sometimes I make just enough for that evening, and other times I will make a mason jar full of it, and just use it as I need it. I find that I use it more often if I already have it there. Not that the recipe is sooo complicated, but hey. Easier to just have it on hand.
Next- I rub it throughout my hair, concentrating on the ends or any damaged areas. Generally speaking, whenever you are using a product that has an oil base, you want to avoid rubbing it into the scalp area. You should focus on getting into the ends to repair and moisturize the areas that suffer from heat exposure and get brittle and break. You’ll end up with a really oily scalp if you don’t avoid your head 🙂 Whenever I do a mask or a deep condition, I comb it all the way through my hair, so it’s evenly distributed.
I leave it for a couple of hours. Just lookin’ pretty and hangin out in my robe. I pull my hair back so it isn’t an oily mess in my face. If you choose to sleep in yours, you can wrap your hair in plastic wrap or a shower cap. I usually do it in the evenings and leave it in a few hours, but you can sleep in it if you want.
Wash and condition as you normally would and… voila! Amazing hair that is soft and silky. I would recommend this treatment as often as once a week. In the winter, my hair takes a beating, so I usually try to deep condition once a week.
Another great DIY deep conditioner recipe I found from 4 Chair Chick. It’s simply olive oil and honey! Combine 1 part honey with 1 part olive oil in a bowl, mix the ingredients together, and when finished apply it to your hair! Once it’s on your hair, cover it and apply heat. After you apply heat rinse out your hair and style as usual!
The last one I found is from Naturally Curly. It’s the classic mayonnaise trick! But hey….the reason we hear about it so much is because it works! Ingredients are 1 cup mayonnaise, 1/2 cup olive oil, and 3 egg yolks. Directions…blend all the ingredients together in a bowl (if mayo is cold…let sit until mixture is room temperature). Apply to hair…making sure there is extra at the ends. Cover coated hair with plastic wrap, and then a towel to keep in heat from your head. Leave on for 15-20 minutes and rinse out! Do not shampoo after wards….you may want to do this in the evening or on a day that you’re not going out….any oil that clings to your hair will keep moisturizing it until the next time you shampoo.

Anyone that knows me knows that I have some major hair woes. I am pretty sure that 7 pregnancies has something to do with this. Every time I have a baby, I lose (seems like) half of my hair volume. And if you times that by 4 babies, I am super bald. Not really, but I have these obnoxious baby hairs all over my head and they are really difficult to tame. So, I have searched high and low for a good vitamin supplement to take to help speed the growing process, all the while strengthening my hair as well. Here is what all my extensive internet Googling and experimenting with different products have found:
