Should You Cut Bangs?

Ah, the age-old question: to cut or not to cut bangs? Most of us go through a phase once or twice in our lives where we play with the idea. After all, changing your hairstyle can be an easy and exciting way to add a little spice to your life, and what easier way to change your hair than to cut your bangs? Well, before you jump all in, we’re here today to talk about some things you should consider beforehand to help you decide. 

Firstly, consider your face shape. While oval shapes are considered to be blessed by the beauty gods to be able to rock any type of bangs (lucky you), we can cut bangs to flatter your face no matter which shape you happen to have! Just keep in mind that if you are dying to try out the baby bang trend, this might not be the ideal bang for you and your face. Trust us! 

Next, consider your hair type. There really is a “best bang” for everyone, and considering your hair type will help you find yours! If you have fine hair, for instance, you’ll want to opt for soft, feathered bangs, or even a side-swept look. Girls with thick hair, on the other hand, can do blunt bangs or even a layered look. This is why it’s important to see a stylist before you commit to bangs! We know the temptation to just grab the nearest pair of scissors and go to town can get the best of you, but try to resist cutting bangs at home. Allow us to help you find the very best bang for you, and you’ll be happy you did!

Lastly, consider your lifestyle. Bangs or not, your hair requires maintenance to remain happy, healthy, and beautiful. Cutting bangs will add an extra step or two to your routine. Are you ready to commit to this? You might have to straighten or curl them every day, and you’ll have to keep up with regular trims. While bangs are super on-trend, you’ll want to make sure you have time for them.
