Hair Goes Bang: Beyonce's 'Do Is a Dangerous One
Hypershort bangs, recently rocked by Lady Gaga and Beyonce, are in. But unlike, say, bronze shadow or the no-makeup look, this hairstyle is not for everyone. In fact, unless you have a nice, thick head of straight hair, reconsider.
"The 'micro bang' is a bold statement cut and the right amount of texture is key to pull them off," explains George Gonzalez, owner of George the Salon in Chicago. "There are a few elements to consider before you take the plunge. If your hairline is dense, a bang like this can look fantastic.
"With a choppy, short fringe, you also can't ignore natural cowlicks. If a client has too many, they should consider the amount of work they will need to do daily to smooth them out. Plus, do you feel comfortable accentuating features like your forehead and eyebrows?"
If you insist on trying this look, go slow.
"Don't go too short," Gonzalez says. "It is best to start gradually cutting. Your stylist can always take more off."
