Should I or should I not get bangs? This is the one question that has plagued us all, each time we have planned to get them bangs. You are almost always torn between wanting to ape your favourite actress’s fringed hair-do and getting your standard haircut.

To help soothe your fraying nerves, we have curated a list of everything you need to know before getting bangs...

Bangs work for every hair type

Do you think that you can’t get bangs because you have curly hair? Then let us tell you that curls, in fact, look amazing on curly hair. Just ensure that you keep them slightly longer than someone with straight hair would, because they tend to shrink once dry. You surely don’t want to end up with baby bangs.

Also, they flatter every face type

All the people who tell you that bangs don’t look good on round faces ask them to go to hell! There are a wide variety of bang styles to choose from and play around with. But choppy bangs are a modern hairstyle that works on any face shape and looks super flattering as it hits right between your eyes and eyebrow.

Trim them regularly

To maintain the proper length of your bags, you may want to trim them every two to three weeks. This is because uneven bangs look extremely untidy and not to mention that they also get into your eyes.

NEVER cut them yourself

No matter how tempting it may seem, NEVER EVER cut your own bangs. Although it may seem like a super simple task, it really is not. Bangs are at the centre of your face and they can be super noticeable if they’re uneven or have not been cut properly.

You could have forehead breakouts

This is a very real problem that no one tells you about. Bangs lead to breakouts on your forehead because the product you use on your hair is not touching the skin on your forehead all day long too. Tuck your bangs back into a headband before bed and spend a little extra time exfoliating your forehead and hairline to make sure you’re not clogging your pores.
