Big Bang Theory

Guess which Olsen.  Perfectly coiffed Ash goes side swept with layers.

Now and then bangs make the beauty headlines of Allure, getting declared as the hair trend of the season.  Bangs have been part of my life for more than a decade (hard to believe).  When I was little, I used to have a very full bang with pin straight hair to my shoulders.  I looked like a little kewpie doll.  In my university years, I wore my hair extra long and my friend G (the tallest, quirkiest, mod Asian girl you ever met) who worked at Vidal Sassoon begged me to cut bangs for a student training night.  Of course I agreed (who doesn’t love free blowouts?) and she worked her magic transforming my simple hairstyle into a Judy Jetson-esque graphic bang. Haha.

After I grew out my hair to do a side sweep, everyone I know has insisted that I keep them because the bang is the epitome of my style.  Now I like to keep my bangs a longer side sweep kind of like Mr. Muggs, much to the chagrin of my hairstylist and Perfect Man T.  Another fun look with the bangs is the sideways bun with wispy layers falling casually on the sides. 

Another reason to obsess over R-Bils.  Gorgeous multi-tonal hair with bang and without. Love.

Bangs can dramatically change your appearance.  Personally, I think they can make you look younger and more playful.  If you plan to take the plunge with your hair, make sure to bring a picture ripped from a magazine for inspiration.  Great bangs are no accident.
