Getting bangs can help you make a dramatic change but you might not be sure if you’re ready to commit. The team of qualified and experienced hairdressers at Imagination Hair Salon can help provide style advice to help you choose what would work for you. Here’s how to decide if you should get bangs.

High Maintenance

If you are looking for a do that is care free then bangs are not for you. To stay looking fabulous once you’ve left the salon requires dedication. They require styling on a daily basis as well as taming when you go to bed or are working out. To style them takes some getting used to but practise makes perfect. They look their best when freshly cut and you need to make regular salon visits to maintain its length.

Bangs Grow Quickly

It feels like it takes forever when you are trying to grow your hair out. However, this isn’t the case with bangs. You usually rock them for the first couple of weeks then they start to get too long. They grow quicker than you might think and you will need to take the time to get them trimmed once per fortnight to keep them looking their best. This should be by a professional hairdresser as a home job won’t achieve salon results. The great thing about bangs growing so quickly is if you are on the fence about getting them at least it doesn’t take too long to grow them out again.

Make Sure They Suit Your Face Shape

Some people get bangs and vow never to get them again because they didn’t suit them. This may have been because they didn’t suit their face shape. An experienced and highly skilled hairdresser will assess your face shape and advise which styles you would suit. Bangs have the ability to flatter if done right. Identify what shape your face is and look for celebrities which the same shape and see what suits them.

Extra Washing

If you like to keep hair maintenance and washing to a minimum bangs aren’t for you. Bangs very quickly become oily and need more regular washing than the rest of your hair. If you decide you still want bangs anyway then you can take a short cut by just washing your bangs in the sink in between washes. This ensures you don’t have to increase a number of times you wash, blow dry and style your hair.

You won’t really know if you suit bangs or not until you try them. If you are looking to make a dramatic change then bangs are a great way to achieve this. However, there are a number of factors to consider including the extra maintenance and washing they require. They also grow very quickly which requires additional trips to the hairdresser. If you are going to get them cut then ensure you choose a reputable salon such as Imagination Hair that has experienced hairdressers that can advise you which styles will suit you.
