Snipping In Bangs: Yay or Nay?
Celebs are making minor cuts for major change, but the fringe benefits don’t extend to everyone
Hollywood’s passion for hair experimentation is causing, well, a big bang! “Celebrities love to mix up their style, and cutting bangs is an easy way to freshen up their look while making a bold, beautiful and edgy statement,” says hairstylist Netty Jordan, who has worked with Sia and Tove Lo. From straight across to wispy to sideswept, there’s a form of fringe that works for every face shape. But, Jordan notes, not all bang styles shine with every hair length. “Bangs are not a separate entity, they are part of a whole, so they work best when they balance a cut for a style that flows together.” Another caution from Jordan for anyone who wants to try the trend: Bangs are a commitment, so talk to your stylist about your lifestyle to make sure you don’t get a snip that leaves you stressed. And read on to find the bang that best complements your cut!
