Bangs are Back & in a Big Way

by Kylie Carpenter

One of the most unrecognized leaps of faith in the fashion/beauty world is getting bangs. Or as the French It girls call them, fringe. Will they complement my face shape? What if I hate them, they take SO long to grow out! How will I manage to get my lazy a** to style them every day?

So imagine my surprise when bangs of all styles started popping up on my Instagram feed. They’re the French girl go-to hairstyle and they are back people, in a BIG way. Everyone from Alexa Chung to Margaret Zhang have them and the FOMO is real. But how do you know if you’re ready to take the plunge?!

STEP #1: Find the style that fits your face shape the best!

Do your research! There’s no shame in Googling, making a Pinterest board, or Insta-stalking. Chances are you’ll feel better about your decision after being reassured by InStyle, HuffPost, and Elle that wispy, eye-length bangs are your salvation.

STEP #2: If you want them, GO FOR IT!

Fashion is all about taking risks and trying new things. Your hair will grow back, but in the meantime, learn how to use your bangin’ new do as an accessory. Style them in different ways to create tons of different looks to complement your outfits. Play with texture, parts, length, etc. and just have fun!

If all that wasn’t enough to get you on the bangs bandwagon, feast your eyes on all the best bang inspo and see if you can resist.
