Big Bang Theory

Bangs always seem like a good idea, then I get talked out of them. They are great on Chanel’s Virginie Viard below, however, I think I’d need a whole lot more hair to make them work.

  • Love them…my hairdresser calls it “fringe”

  • Mmmmm. You (we) get talked out of them for a good reason: their appeal lasts for significantly less time than it takes to grow them out. I have curly hair so it should have been obvious at my age bangs were a never. Then along came Mica Arganaraz and I was back in the seventies dream. Suffice to say the dream died as soon as I began to fiddle with them on the drive home from my stylist. Faint memory now.

  • I am here to continue to talk you out of them.
    You look great the way you are. And bangs don’t cooperate with our hair 🙂

  • When and if you do cut them, make sure you pay attention to how thick your bangs need to be. You may think it’s a matter of choice, but it’s actually a matter of the slope of your forehead.

  • I have a friend who once told me at a certain age you have to make a choice…bangs or Botox!

  • I am 53 and will never part with my bangs! I have fine hair, yet a thick bang. A good stylist can make it work with the right cut.

  • I have thin, fine, extremely straight hair. Bangs are literally the only thing that work for me. Bangs also make my hair look a lot thicker.

  • I look best with bangs, unfortunately it means frequent visits to the hairdresser. I guess what I spend on haircuts, I save on Botox.
    You look great as you are, trust your hairstylist if they are talking you out of bangs. They know you and your hair.

  • I had bangs for years…then 2 years ago I grew them out…successfully that time. I liked the way it looked, but a few months ago I had my hairdresser cut side-swept bangs.

    I look several years younger…my forehead is still unlined at 67, so nothing to cover, but it’s just a younger look. I can always pin them back if desired.

    I think it would be a fresh change for you…

  • Just say no!
    If they were for you (most women) we’d already have them
