Today I wanted to talk about bangs. I've always been a bang person, I don't think I've had a period in my life (well.. after 15 I mean), where I was bangless. I guess it's like my security blanket since I don't have the prettiest forehead and I like to hide it.. -.-
But today I just wanted to talk about bangs. As hair styles come and go, so do trends for bangs. For example, excessive layered hair is so early-2000's, so are straight ironed, vertically-zig-zag-cut sparse bangs. The gossip girl bangs were so 2009, and the heavy straight bangs are one of the things that a lot of people should let go in 2011. Then WHAT IS the trend?
Romantic bangs!! :)
I made a tutorial on it today

You know how a lot of people are stubborn about their bangs and like to keep then straight no matter what their hair style is? I think that habit should be tossed.
Check out what's going on in the bang (fringes) world.

The only thing you have to be careful is your tools. If you use too thin of a curler this is what will happen.
or this LOL (it's me) - curling failed with a flat iron

So all you need is overgrown bangs and your curling tools. If you want the curls to be subtle, try curling soft curls (very loosely) towards the end. If you want bigger curls (like Angelina Jolie) use a bigger curler/brush. At first it might get frustrating since the styling part is the hardest, but once you get used to it, it will be an easy breezy way of taking care of your awkward bangs :)
Let me know how the curling goes :D
