Have you ever had bangs? Some people, look amazing in bangs and others feel the style just doesn’t suit them! If you’re curious whether bangs are right for you or not, ask yourself these questions:
Are you ready to get regular trims?
If you are a low maintenance girl and get a haircut once every few years, bangs probably aren’t right for you. However, if you love going to the salon and don’t mind getting regular trims or trimming your hair yourself, bangs could be awesome! You’ll have to trim your bangs every 2-3 weeks to maintain them properly.
Do you work out often?
If you do, you’ll have to figure out how to keep your bangs out of your face. Headbands or clips work wonders and keep hair out of your sweaty forehead. If you leave your bangs down when you work out, it could lead to more acne and irritation on your forehead.
Do you love or hate styling your hair?
Bangs require styling, whether you style the rest of your hair or not. You may also have to wash your bangs more than you wash the rest of your hair. If you are ready for more maintenance and figuring out a style of bangs that works best for you, go for it! Some people straighten their bangs, some curl them slightly, and some blow-dry them. You may have to experiment to see what looks best on you. You’ll also probably have to style them right after the shower because they air dry much faster than the rest of your hair. You can also use a dry shampoo in between washes to keep your bangs nice and clean. Try our invisible dry shampoo that also gives you a volume boost. Perfect for bangs or thinning hair!
If you’re ready for bangs, which kind should you get for your hair type and face shape?
Any hair type can get bangs, even curly. You just have to ask your hairstylist what length and style will work best for you.
If you have a square face, you’ll want longer bangs that hit just below the brows, with the heaviest pieces on the side so they don’t mask your eyes.
If you have a round face, try thick bangs in a curved shape to flatter your feminine features.
If you have a heart shaped face, try side swept, layered, soft bangs. The shortest pieces should hit the arch of your eyebrows and the longest pieces should touch the outer corner of your eyes.
If you have an oval face, there is good news. Just about every bang style looks great on you, so take your pick.
If you have a small forehead, try sloping, asymmetrical bangs to make your forehead appear a little larger.
If you have a large forehead, try thick bangs that swing to cover up your forehead and the angle will open up your face.
