Should I Get Bangs? How to Make the Decision and Tips for Regret-Free Bangs

Have you been thinking about getting bangs, but you're nervous the decision could turn into a mistake you're going to have to spend the next 6 months growing out? Fret not! We're here to ease those nerves and guide you through what an effective consultation with your stylist should look like. Tune in below for Chelsea's consultation with Ashley, and keep reading to learn what to discuss during your appointment to ensure you leave the salon with the bangs of your dreams.

Understanding Your Vision

A consultation with your hair stylist is the first step towards achieving the perfect look, no matter what service you've come to the salon for. But with bangs it's absolutely essential to articulate your vision clearly, before the scissors come out. Are you looking for full, blunt, wispy, side-swept? Do you style your hair everyday or are you more of a low maintenance kind of gal?

Be prepared with reference photos - it's immensely helpful in conveying your desired style.

Face Shape and Suitability

Your face shape plays a crucial role in determining the most flattering bang style for you. During the consultation, your stylist will discuss how different bang styles can enhance your features. They will also discuss how far back your bangs should start on your head. The length, fullness and texture of your hair are all contributing to factors to what kind of cut will be most suitable for you.

Maintenance and Daily Routine

Understanding the level of maintenance you are willing to commit to your bangs is vital. Short, full bangs might require regular trims to maintain their shape, while longer, parted bangs offer more flexibility. Explain your daily styling routine to your stylist. In order to give you a hair cut that seamlessly fits into your lifestyle they need to know how often you're washing your hair, what products you have, and what heat styling techniques you might be using.

Hair Texture and Styling Options

Your hair texture will influence how your bangs will look when they are air-dried, or when they are heat styled. If you have curly or wavy hair, your stylist can suggest techniques to prevent frizz or recommend suitable products. Most people have a cowlick somewhere on their head, and it's very common to have one along the front hairline. If you have a cowlick, your stylist will recommend options to either work with it, or make suggestions on how to control it. Additionally, ask about different styling options for your bangs – from sleek and straight to tousled and textured. Knowing there's flexibility in how you can style your new cut will help to relieve some of the nerves that come along with a hair transformation.

Communication with Your Stylist

Remember, the consultation is a two-way conversation. Be open to your stylist's suggestions and expertise, but make sure you voice your preferences and concerns clearly. Communication is key to ensure you and your stylist are on the same page before any cutting begins.
