    Help with describing haircuts

    Discussion in 'Research' started by The world tree, Sep 23, 2018.

    Hello Folks!
    I've been trying to come up with words to describe these two haircuts but I simply cannot do it
    Do you have any ideas?

    The one on the right is a bob cut with bangs. You could mention the off-center part and the way the ends curl inward.

    Rather the describing styles from scratch, I'd try to find out what they're actually called -- you could ask a beautician.

    I purposely avoided using "bangs" because I typically think of straight/blunt bangs when reading/hearing/using that word. Plus, for the sake of being descriptive, most people don't know the proper names of hairstyles outside their own. However it's not a bad idea to use proper names because most people (especially if they bought your book as an eread) could just look it up.
