    • I have my hair all one length and I'm thinking of getting a fringe – first time in 12 years but not sure –if I would suddenly look old ........ the trouble is I have a cousin who looks identical and I don't want to look to much like her ( that sounds strange I know )

    • LOL, thanks Fraz and UKGirl. Well to answer that question as to why we call them that?
      A.)One of the most controversial elements of hair bangs is whether to call them "bangs" or call them "fringes". In the United States bangs are the common word for hair that fully or partially covers the forehead area of the face. ...

    • Chinglish time: For we bang on heads on the walls after it is done.  That’s why it is called Bangs and that’s how I remember.

    • UKgirl, bangs/fringe can come in many styles and lengths. I wouldn’t worry too much about looking like your cousin. I am usually in a hair style cycle of cutting in bangs...then letting them grow out....then getting them back!!  Currently my hairstyle has longer layers in front and shorter layers in back....sort of wedged up...the oppososite of bangs! I like it because it makes my hair feel lighter and not as weighed down as when it was cut one length. AS far as looking older, I personally feel layers soften the face more than one length and thus present a more youthful look. Good Luck with your decision! estatic

    • Uk I think you’d look fantastic with bangs. I like Naomi’s style and also love the one on the top right side. It’s layered & you’d be able to choose the ‘bangs’ look or could blend them in on days where you feel like you don’t want the ‘bangs’ look. I really hope that made sense.
      I know you’ll look fabulous!
      In terms of hair though, and you‘re in fashion, I was thinking you might want to change it up from day to day?

    • I agree with Jenz for the “changing it up” part....bangs/layers/fringe makes it easy to create different styles for day/casual/night/funky....etc! Fun to play with estatic
