The Effortless Bang Style You'll Want To Try In 2023

Craving a change? Considering going from long hair to short just to mix up your style? Maybe all you need is new bangs. Many women swear off bangs after a bad experience or two, but they can be complementary to both your haircut and your facial features — once you've learned how to style them. Depending on the type of bang you choose, styling them can be a little tiring.  

Luckily, the bang style trending right now is the lowest maintenance version you'll ever find. At long last, the choppy, wispy bangs brought to life by Audrey Hepburn in the 1950s are back. If you've been weighing the pros and cons of trying bangs but have been too afraid to pull the trigger, now is the time. Bangs don't get any easier than this. Here are a few of the best hairstyles featuring choppy bangs to inspire you to take the plunge. 

Long shag

Whether you're looking to go punk, hipster, or whimsical hippie with your new haircut, a long shag will serve you well. It's long hair that features so many short layers it feels light and low maintenance. The bangs can be as long or short as you'd like, as long as they're as choppy as the shag. 

Short bob

Looking to go a bit shorter with your new look? Choppy bangs pair perfectly with a short, carefree ear-length bob. Ask your hairstylist to incorporate some fun layers throughout the cut to match the vibe of the chunky bangs and elevate a classic to a modern, trendy level. 


Choppy bangs can add a bit of edginess to any haircut. However, If you're looking to push that edginess to the max, there's a simple twist you can request when you get your bangs cut. Just ask your stylist for asymmetrical or angled choppy bangs. Classic neon punk colors are optional. 

Long pixie

Ready for a big chop? A layered, long(ish) pixie provides an excellent opportunity to showcase shaggy, choppy bangs. Request a long, feathered, rounded bang if you're looking for a soft face-framing effect that mimics a longer layered cut. This will accentuate your facial features rather than clash against them with harsh, unforgiving angles. 

Micro bang

Yes, the micro bang is back. You can pair this ultra-short choppy bang style with any haircut. Generally, they will stand out more against long hair and blend in more with hair that is cut short. How much of a splash are you looking to make? 


Believe it or not, the mullet is still having a moment. If you're open to rocking the cut, which combines a short style in the front with long or medium length in the back, you can go all out on the choppy bang trend. You only live once, right?
