Believe it or not, this is one of the most frequent questions I get on this blog! Of course, hair color mishaps and perm disasters are up there. It seems like something as simple as cutting your bangs has increased everyone’s anxiety level at some point.

I like that some people put a lot of thought into it, as not all spontaneous decisions turn out well! Especially when it comes to your hair…bangs or no bangs…full bangs or side-swept bangs…etc.

Take the Quiz:

Should I Get Bangs?

Here’s a really great example of “bad” bangs:


Mackenzie Lintz – “Norrie” from “Under the Dome”

When I saw the last episode of “Under the Dome”…I was so shocked that I wasn’t even paying attention to the actual show. I was STARING at her bangs!

I know, it’s all for the show and the characters dramatic shift, but I saw this as a great way to talk about bangs. I started searching for photos of Norrie (Mackenzie Lintz) and had a lot of trouble finding a photo of her “bad” bangs.

Instead, I found lots of jokes about her forehead.

There was a lot going on in the show, so I never paid much attention to her facial shape. Her forehead really isn’t that bad…no one likes their forehead!

I hope this example will show everyone that just because you think your forehead is “big”…getting full bangs to try and cover it up is not the solution.

Get a hairstyle that you like, is easy to fix, and compliments your facial shape! If you’re still unsure about whether or not you should get bangs, then check out “To Bang or Not to Bang?” for more tips!
