It's the season for a good Bang.

We have all asked the question, " Bang or no bang?" Do you have the right face shape? Do I have to style them and blow dry them everyday in order for them to look good? Can I even pull off this look without looking like I am 7 years old again? These are some of the few questions we struggle with.

In my personal experience, bangs are work. You do have to take a little extra styling time everyday to make them look good. I have bangs right now and I love them. I wake up in the morning and I look like a homeless man but, whatever. Regardless, bangs are fun!!! They make any haircut look chic. Yes, you have to take a little extra time to style them but it's worth it.
I could actually go on and on about Helena Christensen's hair here. ...Actually, I think I will. Not only are her bangs chic but her layers create so much movement here. Her length shows off her chest and shoulders just enough to give her a max amount of natural volume. Her hair color is a rich chocolate brown that bring out her bright eyes. Superb.

OK so here are your choices: We will start off with my favorite bang. The full frontal bang..Sounds kinky right? I knew you were thinking that. Shame on you, we are talking hair here. This bang is the most fashion forward

The complaint I hear most in my chair is, " I want to keep my length but I feel like I have no style" Well ladies, this is your answer! Bang Bang Boom!
Again, Great color brown huh? Eyes? Stunning!

Here is a picture of Jessica Alba. She thinks she is really cool here. Not so cool. But her hair looks really modern and fun.

Here is two examples of a straight across bang that is less heavy, more textured and light. It's perfect for all types of hair but looks best on a finer texture of hair.

Moving on to the most popular bang. Side swoop bang. Again, we are talking hair here people. If you are debating cutting bangs, start here. Its safe, easy to style and easy to grow out once you change your mind. Which you will because your a women and hormones flow through our blood.
After reading this article. What are your thoughts? Are you ready for a change? Are you satisfied with what you have? Have you had a bad experience with bangs before? Do tell.


  1. That last time I had bangs, I curled the top half up and the bottom half down, combed them out a bit, then hair sprayed them to death. Is that still popular?

  2. hahaa wow, I forgot about that trend! You got me thinking. I think it would be funny/fun to create all the old styles and take pictures! thanks for sharing and keep checkin back for the half up half down bang!

  3. Are they still considered bangs if they are 8" tall and encased in Aquanet? I dunno. I had that style too. Recently I took the leap. I always thought my forehead was too short for them, however can now say I am a happy convert. Yes I have to style them everyday, BUT I can go longer between washes because it helps hide an oily hairline. Ok that sounded gross. But I do love my new fringe. Especially the wispy bits on the sides. I'm going for a Zooey Deschanel thing.
