Hairstyles with Short Bangs

The hairdressing and fashion realm as a whole has had a love-hate relationships with short bangs since the beginning of its existence. A short fringe can change your whole look literally with the snip of the scissor blades… But whether this change will be worse or the better is always up for debate.

When incorporated with the right style, hair type, haircut and facial shape, the transformation can be absolutely stunning. But when you can’t pull it off, it might be one of the worst faux pas you will ever suffer from. Short bangs are either glamorous or disastrous… So handle with care.
