    Have You Got The Right Style Bangs For Your Face?

    Something For Everyone

    Perfectly Blunt

    We love how this model’s blunt bangs which contrasts her cut’s angled layers, which give her fine strands extra movement.

    • IS IT YOU? Provided they’re not too wide, blunt hair bangs work well if you have a heart face shape, as they divert attention from a narrow chin. They’re not a good idea, however, if you have a round face shape.

    Cool to the nth degree, this bob features, chunky temple-hugging panels and crown layers that are styled for roundness.

    • IS IT YOU? If you’re going for a short hair cut with this much over all edge, you need a lot of attitude, fairly even features and a proportional face shape.

    Bold, chevron-shaped bangs angling smoothly to one side create a two-cuts-in-one effect when the back of the crown is ultra-lifted.

    • IS IT YOU? Hair pros recommend this type of bangs for its ability to add softness to strong face shapes; try it if you have square, oblong or round face shape.

    Piecey Bangs

    Piecey, angled bangs coming off a full crown.

    • IS IT YOU? Piecey bangs can soften a round face’s curves and a square face’s strong jaw line. It also flatters the oblong face, as it draws the eye upward. Keep in mind that if your hair is curly, they’ll be tough to maintain.

    Eye-Veiling Bangs

    A blonde with a short, layered haircut gets major mileage from curvy, pieced-out bangs falling past the lashes.

    • IS IT YOU? The look’s a great choice if you have a high forehead that you’d like to conceal; it won’t work so well if your hair is super thick and/or curly.

    Pouffy Bangs

    Full, slightly asymmetrical bangs is a perfect match for this Paris Hilton’s retro inspired page-boy.

    • IS IT YOU? Bangs like these will disguise a high forehead and help draw attention away from a wide jaw line, which is typical of the inverted triangle face shape.

    Layered Haircut With Bangs

    Want Versatility? Try Layers and Bangs

    I’ve had a lot of haircuts in my time. I’ve rocked a pixie, tried out the center part, got creative with bobs and even bleached my hair blonde one summer . . . but I have to say there is nothing in the world that I love more than my fringe and layers.

    Having a fringe with layers is an extraordinarily versatile haircut. It makes your hair lighter and more manageable, but you still need to put a little bit of effort into managing them to get the most out of your layers. So let’s start at the beginning:

    My biggest piece of advice is to go to the professionals to get your hair cut. (Unless you have endless amounts of practice, this is not something you want to try out in your bathroom alone.) Getting your fringe the right length and style is crucial and a stylist can help you decide on which type of bangs will fit your face properly.

    Always keep suggestions from the stylists in mind. Just because it is a popular hairstyle doesn’t mean if will necessarily look good on your face. Don’t take offense to that last statement, it just means that some hairstyles are better suited for certain faces over others. It’s all about finding the right hairstyles that will work for you.

    Layers can add volume and texture to your hair if they are treated properly. Never disregard your layers. It’s like owning a cat or a dog; if you can’t take care of it then you shouldn’t get it. Layers that are not taken care of properly will drag down your hair and make you look frumpy.

    To get the most out of your layers brush them in separate sections with a natural bristled brush. Naturally your layers will add more volume to your hair without product but if you want that extra “oomph” then as you’re brushing out each layer mist them over with hairspray. If you want that sexy bedhead look then let your hair air dry and add some mousse and finger scrunch it.

    This is a great ‘do if you want a haircut but don’t want to get it cut any shorter because you can leave the bottom layer the same length and then work your way up from there. Layering your hair is a great way to snip away all the dead ends, which will make your hair grow out faster because it won’t be breaking off.

    Layers and fringes are a super versatile look that will add volume and character to your hair no matter what look you’re going for. They’re just plain perfect.

    Quick and Easy Hairstyles with Bangs

    Long 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!
