Bangs at Forty-Something

So, for those of us in our forties, the question of Bangs or No Bangs becomes more about beauty necessity than hair fashion.

The bang, or fringe of a hairstyle is a great way to cammoflage the delicate signs of aging that begin to appear on our forehead and around our eyes in our forties. OK, you know I mean those fine (or not-so-fine) lines and wrinkles. Bangs can also help soften the overall look. But maybe we love our current style without bangs. Do we sacrifice our favorite hairstyle in order to hide our age?

Make sure you are choosing bangs for the right reasons. Seek professional advice from your stylist. Remember: Choosing to create bangs requires commitment. Once they are cut, they are cut. There is no going back. You must have patience to grow them out if you decide you don't like them. 

Some believe that bangs will give an instant youthful appearance. Others may disagree. Either way, the Bang or No Bang controversy rages on. And for the 40-something set, it may be time to consider the bang. 

What are your thoughts on bangs? Have you made a change to your hairstyle in order to hide or enhance something? Do you believe bangs make a person look younger? Please share.
