Pros and Cons of Having Bangs (or Fringe)

by - October 12, 2022

Over the past couple of years, I've had all kinds of different bangs. I've had blunt bangs, wispy bangs, curtain bangs, side-swept bangs, all sorts of bangs! So, if you're considering getting bangs, you've come to the right place. I've experimented with a variety of fringe styles that I consider myself an "expert" at this point. Before you decided to cut your hair, consider looking at my list of pros and cons of getting bangs.


1.) It enhances: When styled correctly, bangs can frame your face and enhance your natural beauty traits. They can soften your appearance and enhances your facial features, such as your eyes and lips.

2.) You can wear less makeup: If you have bangs, you don't need to apply foundation on the forehead; light powder dust will do. You also don't have to worry about drawing perfectly even eyebrows.

3.) It is versatile: The best thing about having bangs is how versatile they are! Although it may appear that you are limited to one style of bangs, you actually have the option of styling them in a variety of ways. 
  •  You can split them in the center. 
  •  If you're in between trims, try pushing your bangs to the side for a side-swept look that will keep them out of your eyes for the moment.
  •  You can pin them back if you don't want to style them that day. 
  • You can just wear them down. There are so many things you can do with bangs. They're a lot of fun to play with, so don't limit yourself!
4.) Bangs can provide excellent coverage for the eyebrows and forehead: If you have a large forehead or maybe overplucked your brows and want to cover them up, bangs are the way to go! P.S large foreheads are beautiful...

5.) The advantage of having bangs is that you can look put together without much effort: They can elevate a casual outfit and can make a simple hairstyle look more polished.

6.) It can help conceal flaws: Bangs can help you hide imperfections like acne, wrinkles, and a thinning hairline. Luckily, bangs offer a lovely coverage of a portion of the face, so if you have a zit, a receding hairline, or lines on your forehead, bangs got your back!

7.) Bangs can help you appear younger: Yes, you read that correctly. If you want a more youthful appearance getting bangs can do that for you. Just look at Zooey Deschanel for example. Although she's in her 40s, she still looks like she's in her 30s. That's the power of the bangs!


1.) They're high maintenance: The first and most important thing is that bangs require a lot of maintenance. To maintain their stunning appearance, you must style and care for your bangs regularly. To get your bangs into place, you may occasionally need hairstyling tools. (Your BFF will be a blow drier and a round brush.) You may also need dry shampoo to avoid washing them daily.
2.) Greasy bangs: Compared to the rest of the hair, they can become greasy more quickly. I'm not sure why, but it may be due to the natural oils on the forehead, products used to moisturize the hair, and many other factors.

3.) Frequent haircuts: If you want to keep your bangs at their ideal length, you may need to visit the salon every 2-3 weeks.

4.) High-humidity climate: Unfortunately, too much humidity can result in flat bangs. If you live in a hot city or country, you should think twice about getting bangs. Because they will become sweaty and frizzy.
