Bringing Back the Bangs

These pictures of Anne Hathaway have me contemplating bringing back the bangs. One thing I'm digging about her bangs is how they're long and side-swept (as opposed to covering the entire forehead across). This seems to provide some hair flexibility or options, if you will...

Thoughts?

I adore bangs! I know I just can't pull them off, but if you can, then you should definitely do it! So cute for summer.

Having hummed and hawed for ages I eventually went for bangs (although over here we call it a fringe!) a couple of years ago and have never looked back, I love them! Love Anne Hathaway too, and her gorgeous 'bangs'!

I would like to have bangs but I dont think my face looks good with it. But they are so cute and depending on what clothes you wear, you can look really professional or casual but the bangs give a chic look =)

I know! I think I am going to get bangs cut again too -- but definitely after our vacation to the dominican -- humidity and bangs do not always mix :)

She is gorgeous, isn't she? I first got bangs after seeing hers in The Devil Wears Prada. I'm tempted to get them again, but I shall wait after the long, humid summer awaiting me in Japan... ;)

I think bangs look so cute on some people. Me, I've got a frizz thing going on there, so wish I could pull this off.

i recently bit the bullet and got bangs - a bit shorter than Ms. Hathaway's. It took me a little while to get used to them (bangs can MAGNIFY a bad hair day), but overall I really like them. I'm a fan of both the sideswept look or school-girl across the forehead look. Let us know if you get them!

Ok, I'm going to have to use this picture of Anne on my blog to show you and all my readers just HOW MUCH she looks EXACTLY like my sister. It's almost insane...

definitely go for it! just got my bangs cut too!

If you can pull them off, then by all means go for it. Bangs look good with my face shape, but my hair is way too thin for them and they just end up looking stringy and flat. Anne Hathaway looks gorgeous in those pics.

YES, for sure! i have a theory that 99% of women look better with bangs. it's true! and long side-swept... definitely flexible.

katty said...

I thought that bangs with my round face wouldn't work but I have wanted bangs like Nicole Richie for ages. Finally spur of the moment, I went ahead and just did it (and also dyed my hair black). I really love how it turned out.

I say go for it!!!

Anne Hathaway looked awesome after the makeover in The Devil Wears Prada.
