I think bangs are the cutest thing ever! But with curly hair? Idk I just want to mix it up a bit. If you have any other cute things I could do PLEASE share. (hair is just past shoulders)
Side swept bangs can be great. I just don't care for straightened bangs with curly hair.
3a (Corkicelli), highlighted, fine, low porosity

I sometimes do bangs in my hair. After I apply products, I gently pull the bangs down and to the side and finger comb until they're smooth. Then I clip them to the rest of my hair until they're dry. It straightens them enough so they look like bangs, but there's still enough wave in them so it doesn't look weird. I know this won't work for everyone's hair, but it works for me!

they sure can!!!!! some people straighten half of their hair when they have curly hair and bangs but it looks kinda stupid so i think the key is minimal amount of bangs and then when you straighten they dont look crazy!!
I wouldn't really call it bangs, but I had shorter pieces framing my face at one point (stretched, they're just past my chin now).

This is what my hair looked like last August...

type 3a/b, baby fine to medium, normal to high porosity except the canopy which is high.

recently chopped off about 4" - HOW LIBERATING!!! Learning to love my hair again instead of hating it for being a knotty mess.
Sure if they're done right... make sure they're cut dry, or you'll have the trouble I did where it was initially cut too short... O.o, took about a month to grow to where I actually like them on a regular basis.

Pic from today (hey my hair is nice today, may as well show off... :P). I have an angled bang, cut shortest on the left above the eye and then angles down on both sides. Kinda weird, but it works better then a straight bang would, so why not?

I think it's down to my cheekbone or tip of my nose when straight. I haven't straightened it so I don't 100% know....

Once my old bangs grow out and I can cut off the last bit of damaged hair that basically refuses to curl, I will be rocking curly bangs.

I think that they definitely can work, I love my bangs!
cant wait to grow it out!!
I have bangs because I've always loved them, but I was heavily warned against getting them originally. I'm not sure why but sometimes bangs work curly and sometimes they don't and it can be two people with similar curl pattern and length. Maybe it's a face shape, styling habits or hair thickness thing. I can never be bothered to style mine daily, if I had to I would simply grow them out, I'm extremely lazy with hair styling in the morning. (Maybe a result of being spoiled with curly hair I can just wake up and spray with a little water and be done with styling!) So I wear mine curly and somewhat haphazardly. The overall effect I think works though. Mine are shortest at the center, the outline forming an arc. Surprisingly, I can wear side parts despite the symmetrical cut. At the center it usually stretched out reaches somewhere between my top lip and a bit above the point of my nose. When it is it's shortest I wear it like blunt bangs, all hanging across my forehead. When it is on the longer side I wear them like sidebangs, mostly just because I would otherwise have hair in my eyes. I love having curly hair because it is so easy! If you have it and want bangs for heaven's sake do not straighten them unless you really love the look, because you have the ability to have such an effortless style!

When it is on the longer side I wear them like sidebangs, mostly just because I would otherwise have hair in my eyes. The first two pictures show my hair with the sideswept bangs. The third and fourth show the blunt-bang effect. The fourth is more extreme and the picture makes it look pretty bad. It wasn't actually that bad, but, I rarely style it that way it was a lot shorter than usual and really humid that day. As you can see from the second and third picture I can do both looks in one day when it is at the intermediate length. I love having curly hair because it is so easy!
