Bangs Swept Side


What are side-swept bangs?
Side-swept bangs refer to a style where the bangs are cut diagonally and styled to sweep across the forehead to one side. They add a soft and feminine touch to the hairstyle and can be customized to suit different face shapes and hair types.

Are side-swept bangs suitable for all face shapes?
Side-swept bangs are versatile and can be adapted to suit various face shapes. They can help balance and soften angular features, add dimension to round faces, and complement the natural contours of oval or heart-shaped faces. Consult with a hairstylist to determine the best side-swept bangs style for your specific face shape.

How do I style side-swept bangs?
Styling side-swept bangs is relatively easy and can be done with a few simple steps. Start by blow-drying your bangs using a round brush, directing them to the desired side. You can also use a straightening iron for a sleeker look or add texture with styling products. Experiment with different techniques to achieve your desired style.

Can I cut side-swept bangs myself at home?
While it is possible to trim side-swept bangs at home, it is recommended to seek professional help from a hairstylist. Cutting bangs requires precision, and a hairstylist can ensure they are tailored to suit your face shape and desired style. They can also provide valuable guidance on maintenance and styling techniques.


Side-swept bangs have been a popular hairstyle choice throughout history. They have been documented in various eras, from vintage Hollywood glamour to modern-day fashion trends. Side-swept bangs add elegance and sophistication to any hairstyle, making them a timeless choice for many.

Products Needed:

  • Comb or brush
  • Hair clips or bobby pins
  • Styling products (such as hairspray, gel, or mousse)
  • Styling tools (such as a round brush or straightening iron)


Step 1: Prepare

  • Start with clean, dry hair. Use a comb or brush to ensure your hair is tangle-free and smooth.

Step 2: Section the Hair

  • Use a comb to section off the hair that will become your side-swept bangs. The section should be about the width of the desired bangs and extend from the hairline to where you want the bangs to end.

Step 3: Secure the Rest of the Hair

  • Use hair clips or bobby pins to pin the remaining hair away from the bangs section. This will prevent any interference while cutting and styling the bangs.

Step 4: Cut the Bangs

  • If you’re confident in cutting your own bangs, carefully trim them to the desired length. Start by cutting them slightly longer than your desired length, as you can always trim more if needed. Be sure to cut at a diagonal angle to achieve the side-swept look.

Step 5: Style the Bangs

  • Use a round brush and blow dryer to style the bangs to the desired side. Direct the airflow downward while brushing to create a smooth and voluminous look. Alternatively, you can use a straightening iron to achieve a sleek and polished appearance.

Step 6: Finishing Touches

  • Apply styling products, such as hairspray or a texturizing spray, to hold the side-swept bangs in place. Use your fingers to tousle or arrange them for a more relaxed look. Check in the mirror for any adjustments or unevenness and make necessary tweaks.

**Final Tips:


  • Experiment with different angles and lengths to find the most flattering side-swept bangs style for your face shape.
  • Use the appropriate styling tools and products for your hair type to achieve the desired results.
  • Consider consulting with a professional hairstylist for the initial cut and for guidance on maintenance and styling techniques.
  • Regularly trim your bangs to maintain their shape and prevent them from getting too long.
  • Have fun with your side-swept bangs and explore different styling options to change up your look.
