Bangs are very prominent in Japanese hairstyles. Be it short, medium, or long hair; hairstyles with bangs have to be there. Moreover, since Japanese hair is straight and fine, you can get the most style out on the forehead or the front of your face.
Short Hairstyles
If you want to wear short hairstyles, the best option is to go in for a pixie cut. However, unlike in a traditional pixie haircut, you will have to use your front hair to create long bangs that will suit a Japanese look. This can also be done on the famous bob hairstyle.
