Important Things to Know Before Getting Bangs

While bangs can look stunning on your favourite A-list celebrities, that doesn’t mean that it’ll look the same way on you. Understand that you can’t just walk in to your hair salon and have your stylist cut your strands to get the fringed look on a whim.

  1. Getting Bangs Requires High-Maintenance. Some people may claim that bangs are effortless, but as someone who has tried getting it before, an effortless fringe only exists in our dreams. Regardless of the kind of bangs and hairstyle you’ll have, your bangs will always need attention. They need to be trimmed once every two weeks so that they’ll stay at the right length. If you don’t know how to do a DIY trimming, you’ll need to setup an appointment with your stylist and that’ll require time and money.

You’ll need to read product reviews online or ask your girlfriends for product recommendations. After deciding on the ‘right’ styling product, you need test it on your hair and see if it works the way you want it to work.


Basically, it’s a trial and error process until you find the product the perfectly works for your hair type and bangs. So not only do fringes require patience, it also requires dollars and perseverance.


  1. Having Bangs Often Triggers Acne. The bad news about having your bangs rest on your forehead throughout day? It can irritate your skin and trigger acne. For this very reason, getting a fringe is something that you should really think about especially if you’re blessed with sensitive skin.

  1. There’s an Available Fringed Cut for Every Face Shape. Really want to have bangs but aren’t sure if you can really carry it off? Fret not, since there’s a fringe style that suits every face shape. All you’ve got to do is know the face shape that you have and take inspiration from the celebrities who have same the face shape as yours. If you happen to have a heart-shaped face like Jennifer Love Hewitt, for instance, then opt for side-swept bangs.

Just like in getting into a relationship, having bangs also requires commitment. Now that you know the basics on what you need before joining the fringe brigade, do consider them carefully before making your final decision.
