Can You Wear Bangs?

Maybe you haven't rocked bangs since middle school because you think they're just a little too juvenile. Well, one look at Nicole Richie's new 'do should convince you that bangs can be supersexy.

First of all, bangs will cover any forehead lines you've been fighting to hide. If you let your bangs hang just lower than your eyebrows, you'll achieve Nicole's sexy look. Also, long bangs will draw attention to your eyes, so be sure to create a sultry eye. Try a simple smoky eye for maximum effect.

Bangs work well for those with long, thin faces, but can make women with shorter faces look too young, so be sure to consult with your hairstylist first.

To create a volumous bang, be sure to ask your stylist to layer them slightly so they don't fall flat on your forehead-also avoid this look by bypassing the flat iron on your bangs. Instead, use a large round brush to blow dry them. You don't want them to curl too far under, or else you'll achieve that middle-school look you've been running away from for years.
