Long layered hairstyles with bangs are now in great demand. Why? Everyone wants a flattering hairstyle, that’s also trendy, effortless-looking and convenient. When you wish to show off your beautiful long locks, try a layered haircut. Layers make long hair more manageable and eliminate the irritating factor of longer strands getting in the way or falling into your face every now and then. If you also want to rock your long hair without a single pin, get some straight-cut or layered bangs.
Variety of Long Hairstyles
Layered hairstyles for long hair are not all alike, and you should try different textures and types of bangs for some variety and also in order to find your most flattering options. Here are trendy ideas for wavy and straight, shaggy and sleek, balayage and ombre long hairstyles with layers and bangs.
#1: Brunette Balayage for Thick Hair
In this gorgeous hairstyle the full bangs are balanced with light brown balayage highlights that are getting fuller towards the ends. That’s a pretty idea of how to make your hair fairly bright but not too in your face.
#2: Long Layers with Eye-Brow Grazing Bangs
Shoulder length hair can also benefit from layers, as is exemplified by the photo below. If your hair is thinner, then layers can add texture and style. Long bangs that graze past the eyebrows soften the entire look of Taylor Swift.
#3: Layered Haircut with Arched Bangs for Long Hair
This adorable style is ideal for gals with square or oval-shaped faces. Arched bangs work to instantly soften the sharper features of a square face. Gradual layers seamlessly incorporate a fringe into a longer hairstyle.
#4: Long Side-Parted Feathered Cut
Bangs don’t have to dust your eyebrows, especially if you’re nervous to try them out for the first time. Layered bangs at the chin length are great for hairstyles in transition. Long hair with side bangs is perfectly proportional for a feathery cut.
#5: Ginger Brown Shaggy Layers
Long, shaggy layers and heavy side bangs are the key components to this adorably cute hairstyle. The layers here begin at the cheekbones and go all the way through to the ends. The expertly smoothed bangs have been whisked to the side for a decidedly flirty appearance. The light brown hair color is quite flattering to blue eyes and fair complexions.
#6: Wispy Haircut with High Crown
One of the main goals of long, layered haircuts is to have as much movement as possible, and this cut definitely fits the bill. The focal point of the hairstyle is actually the crown section, enhanced with long bangs. The top of the hair is lightly teased to give the hair some welcomed height that looks heavenly in this pearly shade of blonde.
#7: Long Layered Wavy Haircut with Blunt Bangs
If you’ve got a heart-shaped face, play up your natural cute factor and cut bangs straight across. A more precise cut at the fringe will contrast long and wavy layers in a refreshing manner.
#8: Long Thoroughly Layered Cut for Thick Hair
Layers are the best friend of thick hair and messy, layered bangs are the perfect fringe for full and gorgeous layered locks. Long bangs work great with the weight and length of thicker, layered hair.

Add instant dimension to a longer face shape with rounded layers that sweep away from your face. This style is ideal if you’re craving to try one of today’s trendy layered haircuts with bangs without having to cover your forehead.
#10: Long Layered A-Silhouette Cut
Who says that bangs and layers have to be blunt? Rock a flattering A-silhouette to give hair movement and break up a longer face shape.
#11: Mermaid Ombre’ed Hair
For women who don’t like to spend a lot of time or money on their locks, one of the best cut and color combos is long ombre layers. While you may need to trim your bangs monthly, you’ll be able to let the rest of your hair grow out for as long as you please while still looking trendy.
#12: Long Brown Shag with Bangs
Shaggy layers are ideal if your hair isn’t pin straight and you prefer to wear your locks in a more ‘natural’ look. This is a great, casual way to rock beautiful and effortless bangs without much fuss.
#13: Long Voluminous Shag with Point Cut Fringe
Babes like Zooey Deschanel know the appeal of a voluptuous shag with a thick, point cut fringe. Long hair with bangs in a shag style is a fresh way to frame your face and add interest to a rounder face shape.

Spice up your long layers with a fringe. Bangs don’t have to be dramatic and can be subtly cut to frame your face, starting at the cheekbones.
#15: Contemporary Long Shag with Bangs

#18: Messy Ash Blonde Shag for Long Hair
Ooze the appeal of a surfer babe without the brassiness from the sun! Lengthy layers topped with a rocker fringe look great in a shag, especially if you’re sporting fresh color like an ash blonde. This look is all about effortlessness, not perfection, and a longer, wispy fringe emulates that style.
#19: Long Tousled Style with V-cut Layers
V-cut layers are for the bombshell in all of us! If you frequently blow out your hair, a v-cut is perfect for adding movement to your already gorgeously tousled locks. For this look, bangs with long hair should be a bit longer to appropriately blend in with the length of your locks.
#20: Gorgeous Layered Cut for Thick Long Hair
Sweeping bangs are ideal for layered hair as they keep the entire look quite seamless and natural. Thick hair can handle the style best as you’ll need some volume for back-up.
#21: Long Messy Haircut with Bangs and Highlights
Front bangs are for the beauties who want to draw attention to their eyes! Don’t worry about keeping things perfect, messy is better here! You can ease up the transition from longer locks to a short crop of bangs by keeping some pieces along the sides of your face chin-length and shorter. Dust off the look with some light brown balayage and keep things fresh and just a little sexy.
#22: Lovely Layers for Soft Curls
Do you have curly or textured hair? Swept bangs with a side part will suit the natural movement of your locks (or even if you love curling your hair with an iron). Straight across bangs can work if you also curl them under for long hairstyles with bangs, but soft curls look best with a fringe that touches the tops of your cheekbones.
#23: Layered Ends for Maximum Disconnection

#25: Long Style with Curl-Boosting Layers
Accentuate your long layered hair with bangs by curling it. Blunt bangs may read inappropriate with this look, so ask your stylist to give them movement with a feather cut and to keep pieces longer along the sides of your face.
#26: Burgundy Blonde Balayage
Deep burgundy roots melt into a soft flow of layers thanks to the blonde balayage highlights. Keeping your fringe darker creates a gorgeous color contrast that tends to lighten the look of your eye color, while the blonder ends brighten your overall look.
#27: Two-Tiered Fringe and Tousled Layers
Though these layered bangs are long, they look weightless thanks to the texturizing cut and balayage color. The coloring creates the appearance of a two-tiered fringe that can be your special personal detail.
#28: Icy Blonde Straight Layers
Just because you have luscious long locks doesn’t mean you have to curl them. Long, layered bangs haircuts can be just as striking when left sleek and straight, and especially when upgraded by a cool color.
#29: Red Waves with Full Fringe
