Good news if you’ve been waffling about getting bangs: A new style is taking over, and it might be the most low-maintenance look yet. Welcome the wispy bang, which is exactly what it sounds like. In fact, think of it as more of a guideline than a distinct style. “Wispy bangs are such a beautiful accent for any hair type and can give you a lot more versatility, especially if you don’t want to commit to a full, thick fringe,” explains celebrity hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons, who works with the Kardashians and Adriana Lima. Plus, the stylist adds, “Since they’re super light and airy, this kind of cut can be pulled off by anyone.”

Fitzsimons loves the look with a wavy or choppy cut, but adds that it can work with any length hair. “The textured feel really helps to draw more attention to your face and has such an undeniably cool factor,” the stylist says. And while the style, by definition, is on the feathery side, it works for all hair types. “For those with thicker, more textured hair, wispy bangs can easily break up the hair’s density around the face,” Fitzsimons explains. “And for those with thinner hair, they can add shape to your mane all around, making them the perfect versatile style of bang. Just be sure to moisturize with a bit of leave-in conditioner like Daily Dose to really de-frizz and define that texture.”
