    Fringe just keeps cropping up everywhere in fact and look like they are here to stay for a while. Jennifer Love Hewitt recently added brow-skimming bangs to her signature long brown hairstyle and looked adorable in them paired with another trend, a flirty, full, feminine ponytail!

    Whether you choose to wear bangs or no bangs, here is a little tip to take note of; bangs create a younger-look for the majority of women! True! Bangs not only discretely hide any brow wrinkles, but they become a focus point and draw the eye to the upper part of the face, to the eyes and cheekbones. Jennifer’s heart-shaped face is perfect for this long hairstyle with bangs! Check out what bangs do for these stars!

    To get this look: This heavier bangs style is achieved by bringing forward more hair from the crown to cut.

    Tina Fey in long hairstyle with bangs

    Tina Fey was on a tribute last night to the women of SNL and it brought to mind how cute she looked with her side swept bangs at this year’s Golden Globe Awards. Not that I didn’t like her grown out bangs at the SAG Awards. Tina has that coveted oval face shape and looks great either way.

    The long hairstyle with grown out bangs gives Tina a more sophisticated look and the long hairstyle with side-swept bangs is a younger, more playful look don’t you think?

    Which hairstyle do you like best on Tina?

    I found it nearly impossible to find a picture of Sarah Palin without bangs! If anybody knows of one please let us know. Sarah has a squared jaw line and can appear to have a square face shape and a bit oval depending what angle you catch her at. She looks best with a bit of volume on the crown which elongates her face shape.

    Sarah’s bangs are lighter and wispier than the full bangs we are seeing more of lately. Her squared jaw line would look more severe if she wore full, heavy bangs. To get this style of bangs, the hairdresser takes a smaller section from the crown and layers them.

    Which hairstyle looks better on Sarah?

    How to Cut Bangs

    Trim Bangs

    A guide to cutting your bangs at home

    Bangs can totally enhance your existing hairstyle and be just what you need to spice it up!  When Katie Holmes appeared with these blunt cut bangs, she set off a trend that hasn’t quit yet!

    Adding bangs may seem like a small addition, but they can change your look totally. And, the beauty of it is, bangs work well with all face shapes. Got a round face? Offset it with side-swept bangs. Long or oval face shape? Try straight across blunt bangs. Heart-shaped face? Side-swept or straight wispy will work. Square -shaped faces can try long side-swept bangs or straight across bangs with a wispy diagonal sweeping style.

    Once you decide to get bangs, remember that to keep them looking right, you are committing pretty much to a monthly maintenance schedule. Hair grows approximately 1/2″ per month and your bangs will need a trim about every two to three weeks.

    Though most salons don’t charge too much for a trim on your bangs, and your hairdresser may not charge you anything,  it’s still more convenient to be able to do it yourself sometimes. Doing so, will help avoid scheduling a hair appointment, driving to the salon and sometimes, spending money.

    It is a good idea to get your bangs cut at the salon the first time, that way you have a good guideline and style to follow. Then you can follow these steps when trimming your bangs at home.

    • Start with your hair pulled back in a ponytail. This way only your bangs are at the front of your face.
    • Trim your bangs dry if you prefer. This is a good tip, as hair stretches when it’s wet, once it dries it shrinks back to normal length. So if you trim while wet, you might overlook length and end up cutting more than you wanted.
    • Comb your bangs as you normally style them. Whether its off to the side or straight across.
    • Use sharp shears specifically for cutting hair. Comb through the middle part of your bangs, while holding bangs in between your index and middle finger. Keep the comb on top of your fingers and comb, as you slide fingers down. Once the ends of your bangs are sticking out from your index and middle finger, trim until satisfied with the length. Most often a trim will be about 1/4 of an inch.
    • Repeat the above process on the remaining sections of your bangs. Use the middle section you first cut as a guideline to determine the length all around.
    • For blunt bangs, cut straight across. If you want a more  feathered or choppy look, use the shears to point cut into your cut line. With the shears in your hand ready to trim, have the tip pointing up on your bangs and snip small sections. If you’d like long side bangs, hold hair at a 45 degree angle when cutting. This will give you a shorter length in the center of your bangs, with longer strands of hair as you go off to the side.

    Bangs are a great way to create different looks. They are a good option if you are looking for a new style, that’s quick and fairly easy to maintain. Another great thing about bangs is their versatility. They can be swept to the side, worn straight across, and even pinned back when you are not in a bang mood.
