Fringe bangs continue to be a very popular trend in hairstyles. Quite unlike the full bangs, this variation is just a few pieces of hair cut into bangs, often well below the eyebrow and even the nose. You may be wondering whether this hairstyle is right for you. Here are some questions to ask yourself before heading off to the hairstylist.
Do I Have Sharp Features? The most effective way of choosing a flattering haircut is to look at the natural tendencies of your hair as well as your facial features. If you have a prominent nose, high cheekbones or even a very distinctive lip line, fringe bangs can instantly add a bit of softness to your face. Even the most minimal amount of long bangs can soften the sharp lines and create a more balanced look.
Do I Have a High Forehead? Fringe bangs were practically invented to minimize the appearance of a high forehead. A one length hair style that simply hangs on both sides of the face does little to draw attention away from a high forehead. The addition of long, delicate bangs swept to the side can make a dramatic difference. If you have always been self conscious about your forehead, this cute bang style may make you happier with your appearance than you have been in years.
Do I Have an Oval or Heart Shaped Face? Unlike the round face, that benefits from the more traditional full bangs, those gals with either an oval or heart shaped face look especially attractive with fringe bangs. The length and wispy nature of the bangs adds an illusion of width that creates a striking balance. The subtle addition of these long pieces can instantly transform the entire look of the face.
Do I Often Wear My Hair in a Severe Style? If you frequently wear your hair in a pulled back bun or french twist, a few fringe bangs can add a soft and more feminine look to your hairstyle. The few pieces of hair that hang across the forehead and off to the side will refresh your look in a very pretty way.
Do I Prefer a Low Maintenance Style Of Bangs? Unlike the more traditional full set of bangs that do require a bit more maintenance to keep them smooth and neat, fringe bangs are pretty low key and easy to manage. After drying and adding a bit of smoothing serum or pomade to keep the cuticle flat, the hair gets arranged as desired and then left alone. Humidity, rain and wind do little to muss these bangs. The sheer length of them makes it simple to pin back into the rest of the hair should they ever become too unruly.
Do I Want to Ease Into Full Bangs? If you are new to having bangs and just can’t find the courage to have a stylist cut a full, heavy set into your hair, ease into it with fringe bangs. This baby step into the new hairstyle will give you an idea of what you will look like with a full set, without making a major commitment. The length and wispy nature of the style will easily allow you to grow them out should you decide that bangs are simply not for you.
