Alright, so I’m embarrassed to post pictures of myself like this online, but when it comes to this kind of question, really the only way to recieve an accurate answer is with a clear example. I’m trying to decide if I should cut my bangs or not. Here’s the thing, I’ve always had bangs and I like the way they look on me since I have a really long, harsh face and I think they soften it a bit. Problem is, my bangs get oily VERY easily and they always drove me crazy, plus I wanted to see if long bangs/none would look better on me and maybe more mature. I’ve started growing them out, but because of a really stupid cowlick along where my bangs grow, they often don’t sit right, even with straightening beause they’re not long enough to tuck behind my ears yet.
I’m really conflicted if I want to go ahead and just chop them off, but I’m afraid if I do and regret it, I won’t have enough time to grow them out for my wedding in a year (because how many hairstyles can you do with blunt bangs?). But I’m also afraid that long bangs don’t suit my face and I’ll wind up looking masculine. Fiance is happy either way so he’s not much help. So bees….opinions?

I voted no to bangs but only because you said you had always wanted to try longer ones. I think a full fringe looks great on you and would be a great thing to fall back on if you hate a longer fringe.

You look great with a full fringe [: I have full fringe, and I love themmm. I am planning on a half up half down curl kinda look for my day. I wouldnt give up my fringe, but my mum has always told me I have an odd hairline! lol

The full sideswept bangs that Rappig: would look great on you I think!
I have bangs as well, and I get that they can be a real pain in the ass (working out, generally when it’s hot). I’ve taken to using a little dry shampoo on the roots downwards when it starts looking oily and I can’t be bothered/don’t have time/some other excuse to wash my hair

I really don’t think you can go wrong! You look great either way!
I know that’s totally not helpful, but it’s the truth!

I prefer the bangs on you, but i’d try styling them a little different or maybe thinning them out. Here are some examples…

Thank you guys so much for your opinions! I’m sorry the second picture turned out so shoddy, with the super bad weather it’s difficult to get any natural light for photos right now. I might try and see if I can get my current bangs a little more swept such as in the example photos that are posted, though it might be tricky with the cowlick. But hey, if it doesn’t work then it seems going back to regular, blunt bangs might not be such a bad idea! 🙂 I’ll have to look up more possible ideas for wedding hairstyles though, I’m mostly afraid they’ll be too short to do anything interesting with.

TwinkleBoss: What I’ve done in the past to achieve a more side swept look was I blow dry my bangs the opposite way of how I want them to fall. I wear mine to the left, so when I blow dry them I do it to the right with a round brush. And once they’re try, I move it to the left, and it sweeps more than if I just let it airdry.

i think you look great with bangs! and if you’re having trouble with cowlick/styling them, when i had bangs a long time ago, my stylist told me to immediately blow dry them first and then deal with the rest of my hair. she said to towel dry and then dry them from sopping wet to dry before doing anything else and it worked! if you let them air dry while you’re doing something else, the cowlick will sort of ‘set’ and then you’re stuck trying to undo it, while if you do it when it’s truly wet, the cowlick won’t be a problem.
