8 Tips for Side Swept Bangs
Getting bangs can be an important decision for some people. Changing your look completely, without being sure if you are going to like it can be quite risky. It can turn out to be the best decision or the worst choice you have ever made. While it's always great making a change or following the latest fashion, this hairstyle might not work for you.
Here are some of our top beauty tips you need to consider before cutting bangs:
1) Be ready for the maintenance costs and time
Bangs need lots of maintenance and require time to look pretty and appealing. You must be prepared to spend time on taming, styling and keeping them at their optimal length for the best look. It's good to be ready for such commitments before getting one.
2) Consider the growth rate of the bangs
You will enjoy them for around 2-3 weeks only to realize they are changing. Then, you will have to trim them once every few weeks as they're getting longer. They will start blocking your vision as they go down your forehead so you will have to start clipping them by using a bobby pin. Depending on the growth rate of your hair, be ready to plan the trims now and then. Although most women love getting a new haircut, some find it to be tedious.
3) Don’t be tempted to cut your own bang
Cutting your bangs can be a very tempting idea after a while. It may even look simple. But you have to consider the consequences if you mess up. Unless you are a professional hairstylist, don’t attempt to do it on your own. Creating beautiful bangs is a technique which can only be done by a professional.
4) Naturally curly hair
You might wonder whether you can still cut your bangs. The answer is yes but you must be prepared to spend more time and resources on products to keep the fringe good looking and decent. You will have to have the right tools that will maintain such a look.
5) Consider your bangs getting oily
The bad thing about the bangs is that they become oily pretty quickly. The good news is that you're able to wash them in a sink.
6) You might have a hard time growing them
Cutting bangs is quite easy but the moment you want to grow them back again it becomes a problem. The comforting news about this is that there are ways one can still look pretty and stylish while in the process of growing out your bangs.
7) The style to choose
Depending on the type you are interested in, its best to consider the texture that you already have. For example, on thick hair, heavy and blunt bangs appear to be great and nice looking. For softer and side swept bangs fine hair just do pretty well. For a heavier look, one should be prepared to pull a lot of hair forward. Therefore, consider this before choosing the style. You might even consult your stylist beforehand.
8) The shape of the face
Choose the type that will look the best on your face. For example, round face shapes are well suited for long swept side bangs. Avoiding blunt heavy on square face shapes and going for a softer side-swept bangs makes you cute. Look for people with a face similar to yours and take inspiration from them.
Changing your look completely can be rewarding. You can never know whether bangs look fine on you until you try. As long as your hair keeps growing, you can always stop it if you feel it's not working for you. It’s a matter of overcoming your fears and trying something new, all while keeping in mind the points above.
Always remember that you don't have to follow trends or try different hairstyles to be yourself!
