Should I Get Bangs?

Today, the hair stylists at Brittany Deen & Co. are answering the eternal question: should I get bangs? Of course, the answer is different for everyone depending on their face shape, hair texture, current cut, and the look they are trying to achieve.

But know that there’s nothing like getting bangs to break out of a hair rut.

In today’s post, we’ll give you a few things to consider as you make your decision. Continue reading to learn more, and if you’d like a personal consultation with one of our Dallas hair stylists,

Are Bangs Popular Right Now?

First of all, there’s never a wrong time to get bangs. Whether you’re looking for something new, have gone through a break up and need a fresh start, or you want to go into the new year with a new haircut, bangs could be just the thing for you!

They’re a timeless choice and no matter your face shape, your hairstylist can help you find a flattering cut. That being said, there are a few trends that are especially popular right now, and that you can see celebrities and fashion icons alike sporting in the past year. Just as the pixie cut made a comeback, so are bangs, especially bangs with a bob.

Types of Bangs

Side Bangs

Swooping side bangs are making a comeback! This early-aughts style is a great place to start for those that are new to bangs. Dip your toe in with face-framing side bangs that are easier to grow out in case you wake up the next morning regretting your decision to go for bangs.

Curtain Bangs

These long, face-framing bangs part in the middle, like a curtain. They’re light and wispy and give you a relaxed, elegant look.

Blunt Bangs

Blunt bangs definitely aren’t for everyone, but these longer, thicker, straighter bangs are en vogue and it’s a style that can make whatever you’re wearing look more polished. If you think these bangs are too heavy or boxy, ask your Brittany Deen & Co. hair stylist for a cut that is choppier in the center. We can use a razor to feather cut your hair and while still achieving the blunt look.

Micro Bangs

Micro bangs are the most dramatic bangs you can go for, and definitely an adventurous choice. Our hair stylists love the way a micro bang gives you an instant edgy cool, and as more and more celebrities choice these bangs they’re becoming a less risky choice to make. Plus, they work for all hair textures!

Bang Maintenance

The general rule with bangs is the shorter the bang, the more maintenance you’ll have to do to keep them looking good. The goal is to keep them from looking greasy or flat, while still laying where you need them to go. An easy way to do this is by spraying on some dry shampoo before you leave the house. Even if you’ve just washed your hair, dry shampoo is a great preventative measure, especially in the summer.
