Bang Inspiration


I’m a little under the weather, so I won’t be writing much of a makeover post today, but I did want to address the most frequently asked question by my makeover participants.

Should I cut bangs?

It seems many of you are looking for a change that involves NOT taking a lot of length off your hair. Being a gal with long locks myself, I totally understand that dilemma. Well, bangs could definitely be the answer! Whether it be a subtle, long sideswept bang or a thick blunt bang (I’ve had both), here are some photos I found on Bumble and Bumble’s beyond awesome website. Maybe you’ll find some inspiration!

(Also, if you are wondering about what type of bangs look best with your face shape, check out this article.)

(Although, honestly, I don’t think those rules are the be all and end all. Do what you love!)



  1. Hey Sarah, so I did it and got bangs yesterday! I need to update my post, but I think I need to go thicker! I think my hairstylist wanted to be conservative, which is probably smart but I need more…uh oh have I got an addiction now?!

    tanks for the inspiration as always!

  2. I too got bangs yesterday. Tera’s cute little bangs inspired me ( and you inspired her) ,so I did it too. Sooooo happy.

  3. Oooh, lovely!

  4. SO timely, Sarah. I have a hair appt tomorrow and am struggling with Bang Angst. My bangs are super long right now and I’m not sure if I should cut them again or just let them grow! Stressed!

  8. Oh thanks for the article. I’ve always wondered what the rules were, ‘coz I definitely look weird with my bangs now. Haha
