Curtain Bangs: A Timeless Cut for Everyone

By October 29, 2021No Comments

If a sleek, one-layer do just isn’t lending the confidence you need, it may be time for a more choppy look. With 70s styles like curtain bangs and shaggy layers coming back in full swing, there’s no better time like the present to hop onto this trend! At Salon Antoine, our associates will perform a quality assessment on the ideal cut for a look that is completely your own.

Curtain Bangs

Also called a wolf cut or a modern-day mullet, the shag haircut can be traced back to the 70s when it was all the rage! This groovy do was fitting for rock musicians, Hollywood starlets, and the everyday guy or gal. Thanks to its versatility and inclusion, the choppy length and curtain bangs were a combination that was easily manageable and transformable that can be suited for nearly every occasion. Since this effortless style can grow into a more toned-down look, this design can be styled with volumizing products for a classy presentation or be left to air dry straight out of the shower for an on-the-go look.

Whether or not you’ve noticed in the past, but certain colors can definitely amplify or diminish the intensity of a cut. Fortunately, curtain bang and shaggy layers are an effortless duo that welcome all hues. That’s because the choppy design and multiple layers lend a dynamic depth to your locks, so any dye job can be applied with little stress. Whether you want a vibrant red or pastel hue, or a more subdued shade like blonde or black, a stylist will have a one-on-one consultation with you to determine your preferred color and intensity to ideally match your skin tone. If you’re feeling adventurous, don’t be afraid to consider two-toned options like highlights, ombres, or split-dyes for a unique, show-stopping entrance wherever you go!

Maintenance and Touch Ups

As we’ve stated before, curtains and shags are easy to manage, which is why it’s such an appealing cut to consider. As it grows, the volume will definitely tone down, so it will transition into a more sleek style that can be effortlessly pulled back for a one-and-done up-do. Before leaving our salon, be sure to ask which products we carry that can help preserve its shine, color, and weightlessness! When it’s time to return for a touchup, you can count on us to recreate your original shag or revamp it for a different style. As always, be sure to keep your blow dryer, curling wand, or flat iron use to a minimum to ultimately keep your hair healthy and lively!

For a face-framing cut, you can’t go wrong with curtain bangs. You’ll be able to achieve this style right here at Salon Antoine! Give us a call or contact us to set up an accommodating appointment.
