Why bangs? Well, for starters, they’re sexy. They frame the eyes. They’re carefree. They can enhance your bone structure.
And they’re young. But don’t believe it when they tell you bangs won’t suit your face. You just need the right bangs, bangs that are yours and yours alone. Here are some Bangs 101 tips to go by.
DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME! Cutting bangs looks easy, right? But wet hair stretches if you pull too hard and shrinks after you cut it, cutting hair dry needs super-thin sectioning and very sharp scissors, and over-directing the hair can chop into the sides of your style. Better to ask if your stylist will fit you in for a bang trim!
Rounded bangs can be great on an oval face, but sometimes a slightly longer side is the best balance for a strong jawline!
Bangs are ideal for masking a low hairline, but if your face is round, whispy bangs might be your new best friend!
Sure, sometimes we like to hide behind our hair. But shallow bangs hide the cheekbones, and expose the fleshier part of the face. Try cutting them a little deeper to expose those bones and see for yourself!
Finger bangs are fashion forward, but there many ways to work them. Cheat them a little longer if your forehead is tall. Cut them straight across if your eyebrows arc, slightly bowled if your brows are straighter. Break up the ends if your style is wavy. And make them U shaped if you want super-fierce cheek bones!
A little bangs – even super wispy curly ones – can help out when you have a high forehead!
