‘The Revival of ‘Mall Bangs’: A Trendy ’80s Look for 2023

With the abundance of bang styles making waves in 2023, it’s no wonder some might blur together in your mind. From “Birkin bangs” to peekaboo bangs, the choices seem endless. However, one resurfacing 80s-inspired trend stands out for its retro charm: mall bangs.

The great news about 2023’s “mall bangs” is that they don’t have to be as exaggerated as their ’80s predecessors. These bangs are more versatile, eliminating the need for tons of Aqua Net hairspray. Instead, mall bangs are all about adding a touch of interest rather than achieving perfection. They can be customized to suit your unique hairline, forehead size, and preferred thickness. While not everyone may be on board with this ’80s-inspired style, it’s worth trying out, especially since it’s more adaptable than ever in 2023.

Celebrate Your Curls &  Waves

For those with naturally curly or wavy hair who once felt compelled to straighten their bangs for a sleek look in the 2000s, you’re in for a treat with mall bangs. Embrace those curls and waves; after all, the most iconic ’80s hairstyles were characterized by bold curls and waves. In 2023, there’s no need to conceal your natural hair texture. Flaunt your wavy and curly bangs to rock the playful ’80s mall bang look.

Volume Focus on Your Bangs

On the flip side, you don’t have to have curly, wavy, or ultra-voluminous hair to pull off mall bangs. As previously mentioned, the style has evolved in 2023, making it possible for those with straight and fine hair as well. When styling your hair, emphasize your fringe, ensuring that your bangs are the most voluminous part of your hair – making them true to mall bang fashion.

Enhance with Velcro Rollers

Need an extra boost of volume for your mall bangs? Look no further than Velcro rollers. Surprisingly, TikTok has become a hub for tutorials on how to style your bangs using these rollers, proving that this hairstyling technique isn’t confined to the 1950s. So, embrace the nostalgia by learning how to use these ’50s-era rollers to infuse some ’80s flair into your bangs!

Experiment with Micro Mall Bangs for Extra Trendiness

If you’re seeking an even bolder statement, consider combining mall bangs with the micro bangs trend. This double dose of style will turn heads and make you the center of attention. To achieve this look, ensure your bangs are shorter than traditional ones, and add volume by blow-drying or using rollers.

Give Mall Bangs an Edgy Twist

While mall bangs may have earned their name from the sassy, hyper-girly characters of ’80s, it’s important to remember that ’80s rockstar style was just as iconic. If the sassy look isn’t your vibe, unleash your inner rocker with ’80s-inspired bangs and outfits that can instantly be edgier. Mall bangs can be as versatile as your personal style, so don’t hesitate to add your unique spin and embrace this timeless trend with confidence.’
