Bangs Are Having a Moment Again — So Should You Get Them?

It seems that bangs are in the spotlight once again. Shortly after Irina Shayk debuted a new set (alongside a transformative bob) at the DSquared2 front row, Sonia Ben Ammar took to her Instagram to showcase a brand new face-framing fringe. The model and singer uploaded a photo of herself to her 617K followers sporting separated, eyebrow-skimming bangs that extend to her temples. It isn’t the first time that the 19-year-old has reached for the shears. The Tunisian-French beauty donned a blunt, brow-grazing set in the cover art for her new single Ocean, which dropped in April.

Other A-listers to recently embrace bangs, even if temporarily, include Bella Hadid and Victoria’s Secret Angels Taylor Hill, Elsa Hosk, and Romee Strijd.

With their instant ability to conceal fine lines or blemishes on the forehead, balance your features, and add a cool girl edge to your look, we can certainly see the appeal. If you’re not sure whether you should pick up the scissors and take the fringe plunge, some things to consider are your hair texture and face shape, willingness to commit to daily styling, and upkeep. Or, peruse the illustration by Becky Simpson below to help answer the eternal hair dilemma and make your decision easier.

And if you do end up going for the chop and regretting it, don’t fret — the best thing about hair is it always grows back.
