We've all asked ourselves (or our friends) that heavily debated question: "should I get bangs?" And more often than not, we convince ourselves to wait another season, fearing the consequences of such a daring hair move.
But this season, the look of choice on the spring-summer 2016 runways was all about individuality, risk-taking, and showing off our inner bad-gals, meaning everything from bangs, bobs, and buzz cuts are a major key when it comes to changing up your look this season.
So, to answer your question, yes, you should get bangs. And if you needed a little extra push in the right direction (or to the salon), we're showing you 3 ways celebrities chopped it all off for summer, rocking some of the baddest bangs around. So get inspired!
CIARA'S LONG, CHOPPY BANGS
Whether they're side swept, short and choppy, or blunt, bangs are always a good idea when you're trying to take a beauty risk. Ciara rocked a full, long choppy fringe look that sat atop her brows at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, giving her metallic smoky eye all of the attention. If you're afraid to do anything too drastic, opt for long, choppy bangs like Ciara's that can be moved to the side or quickly grown out.
TAYLOR SWIFT'S SIDE SWEPT BANGS
Earlier this year, Taylor Swift debuted an edgy, platinum blonde 'do that was a far cry from her classic, Anna Wintour-esque bob. The singer changed up basically her entire look, opting for a messy, chin-length bob and side swept bangs. If you're feeling extra daring, opt for a look like Taylor's and side-swept, tousled bangs that will give you a bad-gal edge when paired with a bold, oxblood lip.
BEYONCE'S SHORT FRINGES
So, it may not have been recent, but in all fairness, Beyonce switches up her look almost on the daily. Back in 2014, Queen B rocked long locks that were contrasted with extremely short bangs while vacationing in Paris. The look was one that seemed to predict future trends, as spring-summer 2016 runways like Christopher Kane had models strutting their stuff with ultra-short choppy bangs.
Warning: this look is best suited for those who are certain that bangs suit them well, or simply for the daring chick who isn't afraid to switch up her hair!
