Question curly hair with straight bangs?

Hello curly girls! I need your opinion! I currently have lots of 3b curls down past my shoulders. I've been thinking about getting a side swept bang that i would wear straight but keep the rest of my hair curly. I'm not sure how this will look and I haven't been able to find any good pictures. I'm just toying with the idea of getting some kind of bang..i need a change! lol what do you think??

well I think it would look fine as I have that look right now and have many clients that have it as well.
the long side swept fringe works well.. even an asymetric fringe looks kinda cool,
I like multi textural looks .. not all the same curl in one head its more visual.
also when you wear your hair back your bangs are the focal point. Lots of attention on the eyes. So go for it! u might need to use a flat iron though.. I reccommend getting the blow dryer out and products of course and pointing the dryer down on the bangs and pull straight down on the hair til all the curl is pulled out and direct the hair over to the side.
after awhile you can train it to just stay that way if you're lucky!
so go for it!

I'm more of a wavy (mostly 2c with a coupla parts that want to be 3a), and I have side swept bangs that I blow straight, or close to it. You can see what I do with them fairly well in my avatar. I love them.

Default i like the idea,lol

considering my hair is that way, i would say go 4 it. its not a bad idea....4 myself right now i just wanna grow my bangs out already! i guess after a while i got tired of having 2 have my bangs straight while the rest was curly. my mood changes when it comes 2 my hair. sometimes i want my bangs straight and the rest of my hair curly and then some times i want it 2 be all curly, but when u have bangs the all curly option is impossible. ive tried but my bangs would curl up 2 short, so it would look really wierd in the front (sigh)....so consider the options u would like 2 have

I do this too! I have long side swept bangs and I straighten them occasionally even though I wear my hair wavy. I'm a 2a/2b.

Go to this thread: To Bang or Not to Bang?
and scroll down to Christinemarie123's post, and look at her pictures.
Hope this helps!

Good luck. I love the side swept look but when I blow dry and staighten, they always separate into parts, and it looks awful, and my cowlick always comes into play. I wish I could figure out how to make it work.

I'm getting my hair trimmed today and already have really long bangs that have been growing out. I don't have much wave at the root, so the bangs are pretty straight - I usually wear it as you see here in my photo. I do look better with bangs, as I have a long face...so today I'm thinking of getting shorter bangs so that I can soften the look around my face, but still pull them off if the mood strikes me.

I'm 4a and I do that sometimes. I wear the back in a curly ponytail and then straighten my bangs, while my hair that's slicked back is wavy. do what makes you happy.

That's what I have now, curlies with straight bangs that go to the side. And it's worked for me quite nicely! So I say go for it!
