Fall Hair Trend: Bangs & How to Wear Them

Rigid bangs have been spotted everywhere for fall — on the runway, in the fall magazines and even on celebrities. The look is severe to say the least, but bangs certainly can be done in a flattering way.

Rule #1: Never, ever cut them yourself!

Stylists have earned their titles and know your hair even better than you do. They also understand the science of bangs that registers  your hair and its unique texture, plus which bang format will best flatter your features.

Rule #2: Talk about your hair.

When in doubt, bring your stylist a real picture showing how you style your tresses on a daily basis. He or she can help you determine what style will fit best with your facial features and lifestyle.

Got curls? The curly hair experts at Ouidad say you should go long and whispy with angled bangs. But be careful: they are an excellent match for striking features, but on the wrong face they can be a no-no, making you look like Shirley Temple. Round faces for one are incompatible, as bangs work best with long or oval faces.

Wavy locks? You're a great candidate for bangs. Ouidad suggests you ask your stylist to using a slicing technique to add volume. Straight hair? The wispy look is an easy way to test the waters, as they can easily be swept off the face and grow back to a normal length quicker than a blunt cut. 

Rule #3: Styling it right.

For curly or wavy hair that has a tendency to frizz, blow out your bangs with a touch of Ouidad's Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel ($24), which will add shine and control. For wavy to straight hair add a dollop of their Hair Shine Glaze ($28) to give hair manageability and luster.

What do you think? Will you be taking a dive off the rigid bang board this fall?
