Taylor Swift may be the queen of the celebrity spat, but there’s no argument over her bangs. Deep-set and full, her fringe is one of the best. It grazes her brows beautifully, bringing focus down to her alluring peepers. For those at home, getting a bang is a great way to make your eyes your focal point, and change up your look –– without losing length. Click style notes for expert tips on styling bangs.  Click for StyleNotes →

I have a love/hate relationship with bangs. When I have them, I get annoyed with them; when I grow them out, I miss them. Bangs can do so many great things: hide forehead wrinkles, draw attention to your eyes, make your hair look thicker. But they require a lot of maintenance, and when they decide not to cooperate they can be extremely frustrating. I’m currently overdue for a trim and my bangs have grown out just enough that I was toying with the idea of ditching them, until I saw this stunning fringe on Mulligan. I’ve got an appointment in a week and I’m bringing this picture. Why am I so obsessed? Click the notes to find out. ––  Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

I love bangs and I’m always happy when the thick ones are on trend. But as a long-time bang lover, I know this particular style comes with some challenges, especially when it comes to wearing your hair up. A blunt fringe negates the possibility of wispy edges or face framing tendrils. The strong line of a full bang can give the right updos a cool, contemporary edge, but on the wrong look it can feel blocky and awkward.
