I've been thinking it's time for a change. I've had bangs since babyhood. I briefly grew them out when I was 10 but cut them back two years later, and haven't been rid of them since. I've tried different lengths, but so far I've best liked choppy bangs that skim my eyebrows, such as I have now.
That being said! I'm really into short, blunt "Bettie Page" bangs right now. Although Louise Brooks was also notable for her hair, I think most people identify them with Bettie Page better... So here is my question: What do you think of this style for bangs/fringe? And more importantly (ha!), should I cut my bangs in this style?

I'm a fan of the blunt bangs! Mine aren't quite as extreme at Bettie's, but I think they are SO cute. My only problem is that they need constant attention, styling, and trimming. My favorite hair styles for myself are the ones that take no styling. But here I am giving you bang tips, you know that! I'd say go for it! It'll always grow back if you don't like it!

NOOOOOO! You look awsome as you are. BB bangs also need a shorter style. Just my humble opinion

Love the bangs look, specially blunt and straight. That being said, for your hair (very curly) better keep the bangs quite long, because otherwise they'll be impossible to style. Talking out of experience.

Love your blogg, by the way!
