There are lots of ways to give your hair a makeover. Big hairdo changes like a new hair color or a shorter hair length will create an instant new look with lots of impact, or styling your hair into a half up, half down updo or a braided hairstyle will give you an entirely new look without having to alter your hair in anyway.
But if you’re looking for more than just a new hairstyle or something less drastic than a hair cut or hair color that changes your hair completely then bangs might be the answer.
If you don't know much about bangs then our hairstyle article, Hair Ideas: Bangs Hairstyles and their Benefits, is a good place to start. For those who do know about bangs but just aren't sure if they are for them then take a look at these two hairstyles from Carrie Underwood.
For both of these hairstyles, all Carrie has done is added loose waves to her long blonde locks - and while both hairdos look great - there’s no denying that the hairstyle that also features bangs has that extra oomph.
This is because the bangs have not only added a new feel to Carrie’s classic wavy hairstyle, they have also shortened the length of her oblong face shape as well as added balance by flattering the width across her forehead. She's then further enhanced her face shape by side-sweeping her bangs to draw attention up and away from her pointed chin and focus it on her beautiful eyes. That is the beauty and impact of bangs. They create a new look, help minimize facial flaws and can enhance great features such as your eyes and cheekbones!
So the next time you’re in the mood for a hair style makeover but unsure about what to try then why not give bangs a go?. If you're still not convinced then upload your photo to our Virtual Hairstyler and try something with bangs from our range of celebrity and salon hairstyles. That way you'll get a firsthand look at whether bangs are the hair style makeover for you.
