Curtain bangs— the banging trend of 2022 and celebrities that rocked the style

A hairstyle that continues to enter the new year with a bang is the curtain bangs. Curtain bangs trended last year, and they’re back again in 2022. What are they, and which are the celebrities that rocked the curtain bangs style?

Curtain bangs were first made famous in the ’60s and the ’70s, allegedly and practically invented by Brigette Bardot, a ’60s celebrity that rocked the curtain bangs style. Curtain Bangs are a type of bang that frames both sides of the face. The best part about this style is that it works for all face shapes with its versatility and the ways you can tweak it as per your mood. They are somewhat messy yet effortless, framing your face like a curtain frames a window, hence the name.
