• Donít assume that you can simply take your scissors and cut bangs into your
hair and have the results be what you want. You need to plan carefully and make
sure you understand how the bangs will lie on the face. The last thing you want
is to cut several inches off the front of your hair, only to find that having the bangs
in your face (in some cases constantly) is too much of an irritation.
• Donít over texturize your bangs. Remember that when you add layers of texture
into the bangs you are in effect shortening some of the hairs there. As mentioned
above, some hair types need a specific amount of length to weigh them down
and allow them to ďhangĒ. You donít want to ruin the look of your hairstyle
because you were overzealous in adding texture.
• Donít decide to get bangs added to your hairstyle just because you like the way
they look on someone else. Check with a professional, or at least a friend or
family member you can trust to be objective with you about whether or not having
bangs would suit you or use hairstyle imaging software.
Bangs can be a great way to add some new life to an established style. Bangs can make you look more
vibrant and can give you a great deal of satisfaction if the style is carefully chosen and flattering to you. Bangs can also be a great
way to add versatility to a style when the style of bangs selected is one that lends itself to a multitude of styling techniques.
