Walnut Creek Salon Offers Many Hairstyle Options for Bangs


One of the easiest ways to change your hairstyle is just a snip of the bangs. However, if you go too short you’ll look like your mom cut them like in your 3rd grade school picture. If they are too long, you’ll be constantly clipping them back or blowing them from out of your eyes. So what is a girl to do? Maybe these different styles can help you find the right type of fringe that completes your ‘do!

Side Swept

Side Swept – These are definitely a safe choice since they flatter just about any face and rarely go out of style.


Blunt bangs

Blunt Bangs – Made popular in the 1960’s, these are not for the faint of heart. Not very many people can get away wearing these thick, straight across, and very angular bangs.

Wispy Bangs – This fringe is thin and has a lot of texture and movement. They are among the most common since they also are always in style and compliment most faces.

Pixie Bangs – We all know about the pixie cut made popular by Mia Farrow and then made its comeback with the gorgeous Halle Berry. Just as the pixie cut itself is very daring, so are its pixie bangs. Super short and super wispy, you’ll make even Tinker Bell jealous of your choppy hairdo.

Curved Bangs – This type of bang is great for heart or triangle shaped faces as it minimizes the forehead. It tends to be shorter in the middle and tapers down to the tops of the cheekbones.

Pin Up Girl Bangs – While this may not be for the majority of women, this definitely makes a sexy statement. Thick bangs curled around a roller is reminiscent of those sensual sirens of the 1940’s and 50’s.

Clip-In Bangs – For the commitment phobic, there are just as many styles of clip in bangs as there are styles and hair colors. There are tiny clips at the base where you attach them to your natural hairline. In addition, you can have them trimmed and styled to fit any of the above types of bangs (and at Wig Works and Extensions for Hair Salon, if you buy them from us, the trim is complimentary!).

The right bangs can frame your face, accentuate your best facial features, and give you an entirely different look with minimal effort. However, the wrong ones can make you look childish, frumpy, or outdated. Wig Works and Extensions for Hair Salon in Walnut Creek has incredible, experienced stylists that can help you choose the style that’s right for your facial features without the fear of that “oops” moment.


About Janelle P.

I am proud to be one of the foremost hair loss specialists in the Bay Area with over thirty years experience in the field. At age 12 I began styling wigs for fashion and fun and assisted my mother after she established Wig Works in the early 1970’s. My passion for hair led me to Honolulu where I worked closely with legendary stylist Paul Mitchell. I had the honor to perform onstage platform hair styling with Mr. Mitchell, as well as legendaries Jean Braa, Zenon, and Alan Bush. I was also highly involved with the development and distribution of the Paul Mitchell line and later worked as a color representative for L’Oreal and stylist instructor for Matrix. I returned to the Bay Area and expanded Wig Works, with the establishment of Extensions for Hair. The revolutionary new hair extension method offered my clients with thin hair the opportunity to augment their style rather than relying on a wig or hair clip for length or fullness. These hair extensions are popular with women of all ages. Furthermore, I survived breast cancer twice and once lost all my hair from chemotherapy, so I have a unique perspective on special hair needs.
