    Short Hair Bangs . . . and the Winner is

    Lissa Rinna Short Hair Style with Bangs.

    Short hair with bangs (fringe, for of all you Brits)

    Short and bangs are like peanut butter and jelly, they just naturally go together. Americans know them as bangs but much of the world knows them as fringe. If you are looking for a quick, easy way to update your look . . . try adding or changing the style of your hairdo. There are hairstyles with bangs to fit your face shape, hairstyle and hair type, just start watching for it.

    A frustrating issue I hear often, is this:

    I would like to wear short? bangs but can’t because I have cowlicks. Or, my hair is too wavy or curly to wear short hair bangs, they have a mind of their own.,,

    The frustrating part here is, I know these women could wear short hair with bangs if they just knew how to style them.

    Cowlicks can be tamed and straightened with a flat iron. Because of the flat irons ability to lay on the forehead, without burning, these hair types can now achieve straight bangs easily and quickly.

    If you’re having a hard time believing this one because of your past experience, have your hair dresser show you how it’s done. You may be pleasantly surprised!

    The most favored choice of short bangs today is bangs that are styled forward in long chunky pieces and high lighted to add more texture and depth. Texturizing techniques give movement and airiness to the long layered bangs. Paris Hilton, Lisa Rinna and Sienna Miller show slightly different versions of this look.

    Another trendy, but less worn hairstyle is the heavy, blunt cut bang of the 60’s, (think early Cher.) It can be an extremely vogue look on woman who carry it off by dressing in vogue fashion. But others, beware, hairstyles with straight, heavy bangs can be the kiss of death in, oh, so many ways! Round face shapes and square face shapes should steer clear of the blunt cut bang hairstyles. These bangs will give the illusion of added weight to your face shape. Kelly Osborne wears this hairstyle, despite of her round face shape . . . but that’s Kelly!

    The short-short, fringy bangs are soooo cute, particularly on petite women, or women with small bone structures and face shapes. These types of short hair bangs can be wispy with uneven edges, or, chunkier and uneven. If you have big round eyes, and a smaller frame, you must try this type of short hair with bangs. The only face shape that should not wear this is an oblong or rectangular face shape, this hairstyle will only make you face shape longer.

    OHH . . . and this is important, you should have a nice face, because the short-short fringy bang hair style shows everything off! A well proportioned face is best, that means, if you have a large nose, chin or forehead, think twice about the fringe.

    1. Pam,
      Short hair with bangs is perfect for you!
      Stay away from: Big hair, it will overpower your body shape. Also, wearing it longer than shoulder length is out of proportion for your height.

      Go towards: Short hair, it will flatter you best! Experiment with super short, edgy styles with sharp definitive lines, boyish short looks, or feminine wispy styles.

    2. my problem is that I am petite, and I have a small,narrow face. I love short bangs. I have thin straight hair and glasses. What styles for a short person and hair colors, presently a light auburn looks outstanding on a 4’11 lady.
      feathered, what I need a lot of help, bangs, from sides, to back……have cow licks o both sides of head at crown.

    4. Ok so I have a round face, extremely thick, board straight hair. It is almost to my shouldres and lots of layers, but I would love to get short hair with bangs but not sure what to get. I’ve also been thinking about maybe adding some bangs but I’m just not sure if they are right for my face shape. Any advise??

    5. Dear Sir/Madam,
      I have a round face. I have naturally thick hair, and I mean really, really thick hair! I can twirl it and it’ll stay, which kind of looks like a tornado. My hair was cut in layers about 4 months ago, and now i’m looking for a new style. I’m thinking about getting short bangs again, but it irritates my eyes, so that’s out of the question. Any advice?
