    1. Square and blunt cut, about level with her ears. preferably dark colored. the best is black !
      That’s the way to beautify a woman!
      If you want to go wild, have her earlobes and septum pierced and make her wear a smooth rather big shiny golden rings through it !
      Maybe combine that with some great bold artistic tattoos !
      And you have a woman that’s worth keeping !

    3. Ladies’ bangs should be straight and level, blunt cut and just above the eyebtows.
      Those are definitely the most gorgeous bangs. Never mind if the rest is long or short.

    5. I have long hair, and would definitely want to try the blunt look. I saw the pictures of the Pixie Hair Cuts. I admire women who flaunt that style. I’d love to do that, but I think I’m not quite ready for it yet. It’s really forward and out there. I’ll try out the blunt look for now. =D
