5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Cut Your Bangs

Are you willing to wake up early to style your fringe?

A set of fringe can dramatically make a difference on how you look. Whether it's good or bad, the answer is not always the same. Let's be honest: While you may be expecting the results to give you a banging 'do, that one decision can easily turn out to be a beauty nightmare that'll have you hoarding bobby pins for the next few months. To avoid that, below are some important questions to ask yourself first before you decide to book that salon appointment and have your bangs cut.

1. What's your face shape?

Blunt bangs may not look the same on you as it does on Zooey Deschanel, so it's something that you need to really consider when setting your expectations. Depending on if you have heart-shaped, oval, or round face, a different kind of fringe may work best to frame your facial features. Study your face shape first before presenting a celebrity peg to your hairstylist.

2. How committed are you to styling?

Here's the truth: bangs are high-maintenance. You have to commit to waking up at least an hour earlier just to style your hair and make sure that your fringe isn't sitting on the wrong side of your face. Air-drying just won't do, so you'd have to set aside time everyday to give your bangs the attention it craves.

3. What's your natural hair texture?

Is your hair thick or thin, curly or straight? This is another thing to think about before you take the plunge. You could be spending a lot of time trying to tame unruly hair or straightening your naturally curly strands. Wavy bangs are kind of cute, but is that the look you're going for? You might want to set realistic expectations first.

4. What kind of lifestyle do you have?

Are you a sporty kind of gal? Do you regularly hit the gym? Or do you spend a lot of time baking or cooking in the kitchen? Having hair in your eyes or face may slow you down and get in the way of your daily activities. You may just end up holding back your bangs with a headband every now and then, so it's up to you to decide if it's really worth making the snip in the first place.

5. Are you a hundred percent sure you want it?

It might just be an impulsive decision you're making after seeing Taylor Swift's fresh set of fringe at the Grammys, so ask yourself not just once or twice but as many times as you need. How committed are you to cutting your bangs? Because once you chop them off, there's no going back. It might take some time to grow it out once you're sick of it, so it has to be a decision that you’re willing to stick by for the next few months.
