Bangs or no bangs?

    I am thinking of getting bangs? What is the general consensus on bangs? I can't decide what to do - blah

    I am thinking of getting the really short ones or shaggy longer ones :)

    I'm having the same debate - and have been for the last couple of cuts.
    once you get them though they are a pain to get rid of - that's my dilemma.

    I really like j-lo's new ones... or the cute blond on Boston Public :)
    that's my toss up

    DON'T DO IT.

    You may want it now, but in a week or two you'll be dreading that you ever thought about it.

    It took me years to grown out my bangs the first time, then I cut them again cuz I thought I wanted a change. T'ya....then it took forever to grow them out again.

    Don't do it.

    MY GF used to have em. She went originally for the Audrey Hepburn look:

    Then she grew them a bit further for a Betty Page look like this:

    They looked very sexy but to some guys it's an intimidating look.

    I liked em, but she's growing her hair out now to have em more like she used to long & straight. She can always go back.

    I love my bangs!

    Sure, they will be a bitch to grow out, but they are fun for now!

    the current resurgence in 80's trends is equal parts frightening and exhilerating. i feel like i'm 8 again and going on a roller coaster for the first time.
    that said, i'll gladly trainspot on 80's phenomena, but i refuse to participate. i had enough the first time around. :)

    Yep.. it's been over a year for my GF and she's just been able to recently put the bangs behind her ears.

    They are a pain in the ass, although she went through some really cute stages in between.

    As my father's wife says: [posh brit accent] "Bangs are the poor woman's face-lift."

    Only she calls them "a fringe".

    Despite that, I still don't like them myself. The only people who need bangs are people with unusually large foreheads - then it kinda balances everything out.

    I once met a girl with bangs and I always wondered why she had such a heavy helping of them, until one day, I saw her walk out the shower with her hair up in a towel. She had (and I'm not exaggerating here) NO FOREHEAD. Her hairline started about a centimeter above her eyebrows. Freaky.

    /bang stories.

    But hey, if you like them, go for it. Especially if you have short hair, it won't be too bad to grow them into shorter layers, but leogirl is right - the grow out phase is a slut - especially if you have long hair.

    I should have added, I don't like them for myself. I look like fucking Xena princess bang when I had them.

    This is hilarious ... & SOOOOO true!! (Kinda like the comb-over for balding middle managers.)

    To add to the great bang debate - I think they look absolutely fantastic on some people & are essential on others (like myself: my forehead (unfortunately) was not meant to see the light of day!) I'd be freaky in a towel as well. Sigh. Only people with great skin & beautiful faces do the no-bang look really well.

    Bangs can be great fun, however ... & very sexy. Plus, summer's coming up ... you can get creative & feel lighter ... if it were my decision, I'd mentally place a pic of my face in the 2 images above (Audrey or Betty) & if either pic is an improvement, go for it! You only live once. :p

    I hate decisions!

    I think the short bangs looks super sexy on the right people. I have a small forhead and my hair is long and all one length right now, about 4 inches past my shoulders or longer so..... I still dont know what i want to do. But great comments from everyone, i might do a crazy dye job instead. Any ideas?

    You tbk are the best! :)
