In the “Year of the Bang,” I, too, took the leap into the dark side. With a variety of bangs to suit every face shape, it’s a quick switch up that’s also flattering with a retro, yet modern feel. I personally favor, and was inspired by, the long, somewhat straight across bangs (a la Jane Birkin and Taylor Swift) due to the bolder focus it places on the eyes.
Pluses of having bangs:
- You can make some seriously intense stares.
- Don’t have to deal with flyaways.
- Clammy summer days, and even clammier, stringy bangs.
- Depending on thickness and length of the bangs, your eyebrows disappear, so it may be hard to display certain (aka many) expressions.
