02.13.13 … HAIR
What do Kim Kardashian, Michelle Obama and Jessica Biel now have in common? Bangs baby!
Have you been thinking of trying some yourself? Raise your hand if you recall a past hair nightmare of “bowl bangs” or “yikes, too short”! How about those Aqua Net 80′s bangs?! And no matter the type of bang, we all remember those painful grow out days. Bobby pins + headbands sure were our friends . . .
But bangs have come a long way since then and offer so many positive style options!
We’ve got the Curtain Bang (Alexa Chung, Bridgette Bardot), the Side Swept Bang (Reese Witherspoon, Kim K.), the Bold+Blunt Bang (Jessica B., Sophia Bush), and the Textured Bang (Rashida Jones, Florence Welch).
SO WHICH IS FOR YOU?
(Refer back to my face shape post to help you choose the best bang for your face shape)
Round: Long, side swept bangs soften wider cheekbones… while long, blunt bangs add length to your face.
Square: Long, textured eye-grazing bangs. Keep it soft; avoid blunt bangs.
Oval: Can wear most fringe types. Longer, just-below-the-brow curtain bangs are magical.
Heart: Shorter, side swept draws attention to eyes and away from prominent chin.
