See-through bangs: Hairstyle to take away from Korean dramas
Bangs have been one of the most reliable haircut fashions since time immemorial. However, even they could not remain completely untouched by change and have gone through various evolutions. Full blunt bangs, curtain bangs, side fringes, wispy bangs, and baby bangs have all added charm and magic to many a face during different stages of their lives. The recent rising star of the bang family is see-through bangs and it seems to have taken the hair styling industry by a storm.
Also known as wispy bangs or airy bangs, see-through bangs have been sported first by popular Korean stars but have gradually also gained acceptance in the West. These bangs do not cover the forehead completely but somewhat show it off through the gaps and are worn slightly longer on the sides to give it a more fringed and layered feel. The overall look is light, contoured, laid back, and generally, quite soft.
Popular Japanese hairstylist Yuki feels that see-through bangs suit mostly all face types but especially those with shorter foreheads as these faces are generally kept away from traditional bangs. Even if see-through bangs can make these faces look smaller than they are, if kept super wispy and slightly grown out, they give off a more youthful feel which is not a bad look to have.
A good stylist would section out the front part of your dry hair in a triangle and then use the point of their scissors to cut into your hair from the ends to give those beautiful, textured bangs. Where curtain bangs are very high maintenance, needing to be styled with round brushes or blow-dried just right to give them that favourite direction, see-through bangs require a lot less work and still give you that put-together look. A new hairstyle is always a gamble but if you have played around with bangs before and youthful and feminine is your look, see-through bangs are a fresh hello.
