  BANGS - by Editor

If you are looking for a drastically different hairstyle but don�t want to lose the length, consider bangs.

Simply cutting out bangs make you look like a completely different person without sacrificing too much hair, or without using chemicals.

What kind of hair do bangs look good on Bangs look great on straight hair, while they could look a bit messy on curly hair. Some people prefer the messy look, so if you�re one of them, go for it! However, remember that your bangs will not fall down straight on your forehead as they will if you have straight hair. Every time the wind blows, your bangs will fly backwards, but if your hair is straight, your bangs will just flop right back into place. One way to overcome this is to iron bangs straight. Curly hair with ironed straight bangs looks bang-on glam. Pull your curls back into a half ponytail and let the bangs fall straight on your forehead for instant sex appeal.


Minimal Risk

The best part about bangs is that even if they look bad, you can part them in the centre or on the side and let them sit like flicks. In addition, they will grow out in no time, and you can start tucking the longer strands behind your ear. Compare this with chopping off your entire hair for a new look, and then deciding you liked long hair better after all!


Two Looks!

You could also simply gel back the bangs and leave your hair loose. So, you can wear bangs, or you can brush them up: two hairstyles and two completely different looks at the same time!


Face

Bangs make your face look a little smaller, so if you have a wide forehead, bangs are a great option to even out your features. Bangs look great on smaller faces as well, especially if you have short hair. They then help in adding height to your face and making your features stand out. You could in fact use bangs to even out your face in various ways.


Bang Styles

You can have various styles in bangs. Your bangs can be really thin and sparse, or they can be thick. They can be long, up to your eyebrows or even up to your eyes if you want to get a bit funkier, or short, just an inch from your hairline. (Think Sadhana). Needless to say, your hair needs to be poker straight to carry off very short bangs.


Eyes

Bangs force people to focus on your eyes, making them look larger and more prominent. This works best if you highlight your hair a little, and add stronger highlights to your bangs. Remember, it doesn�t matter if you completely saturate your bangs with chemicals, since you will be keeping them short and trimming them regularly, getting rid of split ends at top speed.


Low Maintenance

You don�t need to make frequent trips to the parlour to keep your bangs in shape. It is easy to trim your bangs at home by yourself, while you let the rest of your hair grow longer. Wet your hair, and cut after straightening bangs with a comb. You could also get away with trimming bangs at random. Very cool.


En Vogue

Bangs jazz up your look instantly and make you look with it in a second, since bangs are very much en vogue. Or you could go retro and combine straight bangs with a few curled ones. Don�t be afraid of gelling and spraying your bangs to keep them in place.

Comments:   I have CURLY FRIZZY hair with a LONG WIDE FORHEAD...and I don't known if I should get bangs or not (because of the type of my hair). I had bangs before, in fourth grade (I'm now in (ninth),and they looked absolutely HORRIBLE back then! My hair dresser make them thick and the hair all came from one point on my head and, I don't know why, but it looked awfull like that. Back then, I blow dried them straight and it still looked bad. I've been asking my friends and family what they think and almos tall of them said that they think i would look bad like that. So, what should I do because I really think that bangs would help out my features.

Comments:   i like the fact that I have bangs because it brings my face out it does really make it look smaller and then when your hair is cut in layers it makes a big difference on how it looks maybe even letting it stay long and curly is a good look also
