    The Big Bang Theory; Hairstyles with Bangs

    How to wear bangs

    To bang or not to bang, that is the question . . . How often have you asked yourself “Should I get bangs?” Adding bangs to your hairstyle is a tricky proposition; done well, hairstyles with bangs add an element of edginess and flair to your look. Done poorly you are doomed to a partnership with headbands and barrettes for many moons to come, and the “should I get bangs” question is one that you will wish you never asked yourself.

    Before making that first snip, consider this . . .

    Before choosing a hairstyle with bangs, consider the shape of your face. Bangs will alter the look of your face shape, so if you have a very round face or a very square face with width at your jaw line, bangs probably aren’t for you. Remember how ridiculous Kelly Osborne looked with bangs? Her face shape is too round to carry them off. If you want the effect of bangs without the drama, try a few soft wispy pieces before making a commitment to a deeper cut. Think Maria Schwarzenegger. Her jaw line is particularly square, and the fringe hairstyle with side swept bangs give softness to an otherwise angular face.

    If you have a heat shaped, triangular or oval face, bangs can work for you. Rooney Mara is doing a fantastic job making her angular cut work for her. Her hairstyle with bangs is dramatic and edgy and gives her lots of fashion options. Reese Witherspoon is another good candidate for bangs. Her heart-shaped face is complimented by her long hairstyle with bangs that can be combed down for a full fringe effect, or swept to the side for a softer, more romantic look.

    Remember if you choose a hairstyle with bangs or a fringe hairstyle, work your way into it. Try cutting bangs a bit longer than you think you want them to be. Hair shrinks a bit when it dries, and it’s always easier to go shorter but only nature can correct a haircut that’s too short. If your hair is long – shoulder length or below – you may want to start with a tapered cut around your face. Cutting bangs directly into your hair at the brow line can be too harsh a look for some people, so consider fringe that begins at your jaw line and tapers to a shorter bang as you approach eye level.

    Quick and Easy Hairstyles with Bangs

    Hairstyles with Bangs using Clip-In Extensions

    Every woman at some time or other asks “should I get bangs?” and “what bangs are right for me”? Whether you call them bangs or fringe . . . lots of attention is being paid to bangs by Hollywood celebrity hairdressers these days.

    Personally I’m glad to see it. I think hairstyles with bangs are often overlooked as a style option. It can be wonderful for those of you that have great eyes. Bangs will draw the visual focal point toward your eyes.

    Bangs are also a must for those of you with oblong face shapes and high foreheads.

    Fringe is showing up everywhere lately so if you want the look but are terrified at taking the plunge . . . it might be time to reconsider clip-in bangs.

    Hairstyle Blog wrote an article back in the summer of ’09, ‘Hairstyles with Bangs” which introduced clip-in bang extensions. At that time the Jessica Simpson HairDo line of clip-in extensions was just being released for retail sale at hair salons. Prior to that time clip-in bangs were only available on-line.

    Our largest professional beauty supply store locally, Aerial, carried the Jessica Simpson HairDo clip-in bangs for a while, but told hairstyle blog that hair salons just weren’t buying them. Katherine said,” We had lots of hairdressers who just loved them and purchased them for personal use, but not for salon retail.” The biggest problem reported with buying clip-in bangs on-line has been in getting the hair color to match up right and no return policies . . . not a surprise.

    Salons in our area didn’t jump on the band-wagon to get into the clip-in bangs retailing and you more than likely won’t be able to find them at a salon near you either . . . so where can you go where you can see them or match them up to your own hair color? These are the only two stores in my area that carry the clip-in bangs.

    Ulta Stores – Jessica Simpson HairDo Clip-in Bangs $29.99

    The majority of women who have bought these clip-in hair extensions have been very happy with them. They say they are comfortable and blend well especially with the bit of side layering they have. They are made from a synthetic fiber that is thermal friendly up to 350 degrees. These bangs can be wet set or curled with steam rollers. Also, when placed at the crown these clip in bangs will give height and more fullness to thinning hair.

    Ulta stores have a good return policy and have told up you can return these if you’re not happy with your clip-in bangs. Ask them upfront before buying however, as normally any product that may be in contact with the scalp is normally NOT returnable. Keep in mind, your hairdresser can trim these pieces making it shorter or wispier!

    Sally’s Beauty Supply –The Sassy Collection The Bang Thing

    These Human hair clip-in bangs can be found at Sally’s Beauty Supply for $22.99 or for sale on-line now for $16.99 the hair color chart has 6 colors to choose from. I would highly recommend visiting Sally’s in person where you can determine if the color is a match.

    The Sassy Collection is a clip-in side swept bang and is 8″ long. These bangs can be curled or flat-ironed with a low to medium heat setting before attaching.

    Sally’s Beauty Supply also carries Design Length The Bang Thing for $22.99 or $16.99 on-line.

    These clip-in bangs were given a poor rating by 2 out of 3 people who bought them. Bad clips, hair too thick and clumpy and they can’t be returned.

    Check out how quick and easy these bangs hairstyles happen with Ken Paves, Jessica Simpson clip-in bangs. Also remember your hairdresser can trim these pieces making them shorter, thinner or wispier!

    If you have a round face shape you’d most likely look great with some fringe angled with varying layers.

    Angled bangs best suits a round face shape. Find a hairdo you like with angled pieces which will offset the roundness of your face. Angled bangs with varying lengths in the layers within the haircut is a great style option because it will offset the roundness of your face.


    Heart shaped faces look great with full set of bangs!

    If you have a heart-shaped face you are wider through the forehead and narrower through the chin. Lucky you! A variety of hairstyles including bangs or no bangs will look good on you. A full bang look that is shorter in the middle and longer towards the sides is perfect for heart-shaped faces to balance their face.
