We can’t stress enough the value of brilliant and stylish bangs. Have them cut wrong and the eyes can look closer together, or they can weigh you down into a dated look. Get them cut right and bangs will lift you up, frame the wonderful features of your face, and bring more attention to your eyes. Be brave and try different ways of wearing them.
