Adding bangs to any hairstyle can be a scary decision for any woman and we all know if you get a bad cut, sometimes even the best flat iron can’t save you! The possibilities for stylish bangs are almost endless, so to describe them better, we will have to determine some terminology as simple and logical as possible.
Regular width applies to the eyebrows (end to end). Anything wider would be considered a “wide” bang and anything narrower is a “narrow” bang.
Depth will completely change the appearance of your bangs whether it’s heavy, thin, or natural looking. The depth may appear anywhere from a few millimeters to a couple of inches.
Texture will change how thick the bangs will be. Do you want full, opaque, thin, or see through bangs? These are such qualities of texture.
The length could be anywhere from hairline to nose.
Bangs may be blunt, choppy, in pieces or rather chunky and full.
Bangs look nice resting straight forward, or sometimes slightly/strongly swept to one side.
Do’s and Don’ts
- Never ever cut your bangs yourself. If you go on a regular basis to your stylist he/she should provide you with a free or else a very cheap bang trim. Instead of waiting until your next appointment, the stylist can freshen your look with trimmed bangs in only a matter of minutes.
- If you have a cowlick within the bangs area, it’s better not to have bangs at all. They will be hell for you every morning.
- Don’t completely rule out bangs if you have naturally curly hair but DO remember it will require more style maintenance.
