Did you know that having bangs can make you look younger? Did you know that they can also help balance your face shape? Did you know that they can assist in keeping your hair out of your eyes and off your face? Did you know that they do all of this without requiring a single needle, thread, or knife? Well, if not, now you do! If there’s one thing we love about bangs it’s the fact that they work wonders on so many different types of faces. Whether short, long, or somewhere in between – there’s a perfect pair of bangs for every woman! That said, with something so great comes the inevitable downsides. Such as; what will people think. Will it be too much maintenance? Will I look strange? And so on.
Are Bangs Bad For You?
Bangs can be bad for you if they are styled too tightly and kept in the same style for a long period. This can lead to hair loss and/or scalp damage. If you have bangs, it is important to use a hair serum or other type of heat protectant when styling them and to give your scalp and hair a break every few weeks by letting your bangs grow out a bit.
So, Are You Going to Get Bangs?
1. Bangs make you look younger.
It’s true! The first time I saw a woman with bangs I was 14 years old. She looked about 15. I never thought about it again until I reached my mid-20s and then it hit me like a ton of bricks; bangs are the best thing ever for looking younger! Yes, you heard that right.
2. Bangs can help balance your face shape.
If you’re like me and have a round face, you’ll know that this is a big deal! If your face shape is larger than your hairline, then it makes sense to opt for bangs as they will provide a natural balance to the face shape by making it appear more oval-shaped. If you have an elongated face, then don’t fret! You can still rock bangs without them adding any weight to the look by using dramatic hair color or style that emphasizes their length and volume rather than their width.
3. They can assist in keeping your hair out of your eyes and off your face.
The second thing that was a huge eye-opener for me was the fact that bangs can help keep your hair out of your face when you’re looking down. The reason for this is that they add a lot of length to the hairline and they are also fuller than most other haircuts which means that they will naturally catch a lot of your hair when you’re not looking at them. I’d like to think that this is the case but even if it isn’t, it’s still a great look!
4. They do all of this without requiring a single needle, thread, or knife.
You want bangs but you don’t want to have to go through all those hassles? No one does! You didn’t think we were going to let you off the hook so easily did you? Well, we won’t! While there are many different ways in which bangs can be styled and cut, there are still no real tricks to getting them just right.
5. Bangs can make your face look wider.
This may sound counterintuitive at first but hear us out! If you have short hair and then decide on having bangs added on top it will make your face appear more round rather than oval-ich adds a lot of volume and thickness to the hair. If you’re like me and tend to look down a lot, this can be a real game-changer!
How to maintain bangs?
1. They do all of this without requiring a single needle, thread, or knife.
That’s right! Bangs are the perfect solution for those who are averse to cutting hair and don’t want to mess with hot tools (although we have to admit that there’s nothing wrong with a little bit of pampering now and then!).
2. Bangs can add volume to your hair.
Remember how I said that bangs make your face appear more oval-shaped? Well, they also work wonders when it comes to adding volume too! If you’re looking for some extra oomph in your hair then this is the way to go!
3. Bangs can assist in keeping your hair out of your eyes and off your face.
The second thing that was a huge eye-opener for me was the fact that bangs can help keep your hair out of your face when you’re looking down. The reason for this is that they add a lot of length to the hairline and they are also fuller than most other haircuts which mean there are a lot more strands to catch on the face and keep out of your eyes. Now, you might be thinking; “Isn’t that the same thing as having long hair?” And you’d be correct! But you see, it’s not all about length. Bangs are also fuller than most haircuts which means there is a lot more hair to catch on the face and keep out of your eyes.
4. They’re super easy to maintain and style.
When it comes to maintaining your bangs, there are two ways you can go about it: either by doing it yourself or by going to a professional stylist. A professional stylist will make sure that your bangs are cut in such a way that they look flawless but the truth is that if you know how to cut them yourself then you can achieve pretty similar results for not much more money and less time spent in the salon (not to mention less time spent waiting for the stylist!).
5. They’re great for hiding greys when growing hair back from a haircut or losing hair through chemotherapy.
If you’ve just had chemotherapy or have been going through menopause then chances are that some of your hair has fallen out due to stress and hormonal changes. This is perfectly normal but if this is happening then don’t worry because having bangs will help hide these grey hairs so that they won’t be as noticeable when they do start growing back in again!

While this is true, all of our favorite hairstyles need maintenance. Bangs, on the other hand, are some of the easiest to manage!

All you have to do is wash them every once in a while and style them as needed. And if that wasn’t enough bangs can also be trimmed without having to get them cut or styled again! What we love most about this is how little time you need to spend on them. This means less hassle for you but more time for fun things like watching movies or going out for dinner with friends!
3. You don’t know what style will suit your face shape or hair type best
We know that this is a problem for many of you. It’s very easy to get lost in the myriad of different looks that bangs can provide.

Although this is true, it isn’t much of a problem for most women. This is because bangs are great for adding volume to your hair without having to use a lot of products or styling techniques. This means that they don’t make your hair look thin in any way, shape, or form! And if they do, we have a few tips that can help get rid of that problem quickly and easily!
6. They can make you look older than you are
Yes, this is true but only because they tend to be longer than other styles such as a bob or long bob cut.
