Change Your Look with Bangs!

Aug 21, 2010

If you’re thinking about a new look for back to school then cutting some new bangs is one of the easiest ways to transform your hair style! Much less of a commitment than chopping your hair into a short bob or a dying it tomato red - some new bangs will give your hair a stylish new shape. But it’s not as simple as just chopping off some new bangs with a pair of scissors - leave it up to a professional if you want bangs to suit both your hair texture and face shape! Luckily there’s a bang style to suit just about everyone!

Sideswept

Sideswept bangs suit a lot of face shapes and hair textures. It’s a great way to test out having bangs if you cut them long - this way they can be blended into your hair easily if you decide you don’t like bangs. Sideswept bangs can be cut shorter if you decide you like them. Those with very thin or fine hairmay find that their hair is a bit too wispy for the hair to stay sideswept - there may be a tendency for the bangs to not not lie down properly so make sure you cut them a bit thicker.. This is a great style for those with thicker hair - it’s best to ask your hair stylist what they think!

Blunt Cut

This style is definitely the most dramatic bang cut - make sure you’re ready for it as it will take awhile to grow out! You can make them long enough to touch the bottom of your eyebrows or a little bit shorter for a more retro look. It’s important to get them trimmed regularly if you go for this look - hair grows fast!

Textured

These are great for an edgier look and looks great with hair that’s a bit messy and tousled! These are a bit trickier to cut because it involves a special texturizing technique to make them look shaggy that is difficult to do without proper training. Normally hair salons will charge no more than $5-$10 to cut your bangs so it’s worth the splurge to get the look you’re after!

I have a really good friend, but she keeps humiliating me! First of all, she asked me something embarrassing, and I think some people heard... Secondly she told a few guys I liked them, and I wanted to be their friend..... She`s done way more, but I don`t want to get into details. How do I tell her to stop, without her getting angry, or acting like I`m wrong?

There is this guy at my school know my best friend likes, the problem is I like him as well and I think he may have been flirting with me. My friend says its okay but I don't think she's being honest. He's the first guy that I've liked that actually notices me. I like him but I don't want to lose my best friend. What do I do?
