Let’s talk bangs, girls. I happen to think bangs are God’s gift to women but I keep hearing these crazy rumors that some of you are suspicious of bangs, if not outright hostile! Can this be true?
Does it have anything to do with the fact that far too many of us have pictures like this one hiding in our attics?
Because bangs have been so very good to me over the years, I feel compelled to help them revamp their image. They’ve done some soul-searching, they’ve changed their ways, and I sincerely believe they deserve a second chance.
What do you say, girls? Want to take a peek at how they’re rockin’ the 21st century?
Cute, no? So cute.
If you think you might want to give bangs another shot but aren’t sure which style would suit you best, the New York Times recently offered this little nugget of advice:
“Even if your mane has the requisite swing, stylists still recommend using face shape as a guide. An oval face can handle almost any sort of bang. Round faces are said to look better with longer, sideswept bangs. Square faces may also benefit from sideswept bangs, with a slight part instead of a curtain of hair straight across the forehead. On long faces, a softer, lengthy fringe is typically most flattering.”
Magazines are calling 2012 the year of the bangs. What are you waiting for, chickadees? You only have 3 months left!
Go forth and cut bangs!
