Unless you have been living in a cave lately you might have heard a lot of talk on the internet and television about about Michelle Obama, the President’s wife, now wearing bangs with her new hairstyle. It is not a style that is new but does add much to your boring hairstyle.
What’s the big thing about bangs? Wearing bangs can change you entire hairstyle and make it look different. If you have never worn bangs consider finding the clip on bangs from either a local wig shop or even a Sally’s’ Beauty Supply. You simply clip them into your hairline and see how you look with them. If you don’t like them you will not be forced to grow them out if you get them cut and you do not like them. Adding bangs to your hairstyle can make you look much younger. Depending on the shape of your face, it can also change how your facial features look too. If you have a round face they can make your face look rounder. If you have a high forehead they can make your face look shorter and hide your big forehead that you may not like.
If you have naturally curly hair you will have to use a flat iron to straighten them otherwise they will be a curly mess and not lay flat. If you have a cowlick in the front the same goes, using a flat iron helps them stay straighter. Sometimes a cowlick can will make your bangs part so you might try wearing the bangs to one side giving your hairstyle a different look. You can use a big round brush and blow dry them straight also giving them a little flip under to add a softer look.
If you decide you like how the clip in bangs look then have a professional stylist cut them because if you cut them too short then you will have to deal with short bangs that you do not like. All hairstylists know the correct length to cut them to fit your facial features. Of course cutting your own hair and especially your own bangs is never recommended. Your hair shrinks when wet and after it dries you will find it is much shorter than you anticipated so whatever you do seek out a professional stylist before you experiment with adding bangs to your new hairstyle. You do not have to cut the length of your hair to add bangs only if you want to go shorter. Bangs go with shorter hair, medium or long hair. Once they are cut if you choose to keep them they will have to be trimmed on a regular basis every 4 to 6 weeks because they will grow faster because they are shorter you will notice this more than if you have long hair.
So if you want a change to your hairstyle without going shorter, add bangs to your hairstyle, GO for it, after all what have you got to lose, it is only hair and we all know your hair will grow back!!!! Have fun and go Bangs!!!!!!!!
