Wednesday Bangs: This is what makes the fringe hairstyle
The series “Wednesday” by Tim Burton is one of the most successful Netflix series of all time after only a few days from airing and has even topped “Stranger Things”. The outfits of the title character Wednesday are setting a lot of new trends right now and the gloomy looks have become the inspiration of numerous fans of the neo-gothic style. So it was only a matter of time before Wednesday Bangs also become socially acceptable. Not for the first time, we take inspiration for our hairstyles from a series or a character. Just think of the famous Rachel Cut from “Friends.”
From baby bangs to Birkin bangs, there was definitely no shortage of cool bangs hairstyles this year . In general, Wednesday Bangs as a hairstyle trend is a variation of the classic Curtain Bangs that we all know and love. However, in this case, the hair falls a little more densely on the sides and significantly more strands are pulled into the face. While curtain bangs are more like a curtain and leave the forehead free, the “open” area of Wednesday bangs is relatively smaller.
The parting in the middle is still visible, but a bit more subtle. With Wednesday Bangs, the bangs are shortest in the middle and gradually get a little longer towards the outside. How long you cut the bangs is purely a matter of taste. Shorter or longer – anything you like is allowed! So, if you want a subtle change or want to cut your bangs for the first time, the trend hairstyle is a good “starter” look.
Who does the fringe hairstyle suit?
And here’s the good news! The Wednesday Bangs trend hairstyle is one of those looks that perfectly suits absolutely every hair type and face shape. It doesn’t matter if you have thin, thick or curly hair – the fringe hairstyle looks very subtle and thus really suits all women. Wednesday bangs are also a great way to give your current hairstyle a modern and somber touch. The fine drape also feels super fresh and creates a youthful look – so it’s perfect for those who want to cheat away a few years with their hairstyle.
This is how we style Wednesday Bangs
Why do we love Wednesday Bangs? Well, because the hairstyle is not only super chic, but also totally easy to style. The fringe hairstyle comes into its own best in a slightly casual undone look. Simply blow-dry the hair as usual and then shape the bangs with a straightening iron and voilà – Wednesday Bangs can be styled that quickly. However, if you want a little more volume, you can blow-dry the bangs with a round brush. Finally, to get the mystical and gloomy look of the main character, we wave our hands through our hair. And the best part? If you’re already sick of Wednesday Bangs or want to try another hairstyle, the rather longer fringe will grow out super quickly.
Can you cut the bangs hairstyle yourself?

Wednesday Addams are also causing a stir on social media and numerous Tik-Tok users are cutting their hair and trying to imitate the gothic look themselves at home. For us personally, however, this is not a good idea, because if you don’t have any experience, little mishaps and disasters are bound to happen. And with the holidays just around the corner, the timing is a bit inconvenient to try such experiments. So let the professionals do the work for you and rather have your Wednesday Bangs cut by a hairdresser. However, if you are still feeling adventurous, you can check out the following Tik-Tok videos.
