Nothing makes quite an impact like a big bang! Not the explosive type, the fantastic hair type. Bangs have been around season after season, we’ve seen trends go from a Betty paige bang, a la Katy Perry, to a horse hair bang like Rachel Bilson and now to a super edgy uber modern bang like Rihanna, Pink and my fabulous Fashionista on the streets of Melbourne.
Why a Big Bang? The bigger the better! Bangs are a great way to accentuate your facial features and really draw attention to your face. A bang, like our Fashionista’s, makes the face look longer and narrower and highlights the cheeks. A Betty Paige do will make your eyes pop. Bangs can do wonders, but sometimes they can also go too far. Make sure you cut your bangs to complement your face rather than cut them to what’s the ‘in’ trend. Also, always avoid going too long because you never want your bangs to cover your eyes.
If you’re practical about your bangs, then you’ll have a great time styling the rest of your look. With a cut like our Fashionista’s, it will definitely edge up your look as she’s done with a bold print top and leather skirt; very biker, moto chic. With a cut like Rachel Bilson, go for a more bohemian, earthy look to complement your flowing tresses. For a Bettie Bang, have fun and go retro chic: play your look up with polka dots and hot pants.
Remember to think carefully about the bang that will suit you best, but, keep in mind it will grow back, so don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun with your hair.
