Thats how my hair is now. My bangs are long enough I can pull back or style in a different way, or if I want I can have bangs.

This is an interesting discussion to be brought up at this time because this is something that is just now taking place in my house. ha ha My youngest daughter just had to hair cut to give her bangs. Her face is always so hidden. But my second youngest daughter does not have bangs because her hair has a natural wave to it that keeps it from her face with style. ha ha Then my eldest daughter used to have bangs but then changed it and likes to fashion her hair in many different ways. Me....my hair is cut to my jaw line in front so that I have bangs but don't really have bangs. This way, they can be pulled back but also slip out just enough. ha ha

I've had long hair up until a year ago. I guess I got tired of pulling it all back at one time. So I do have bangs now. I think it's much more easier to manage actually all I do is straighten them out with my straighten along with the rest of my hair.

I love bangs. To me, they are very soft and feminine. There are not a lot of things that we do to our hair that men have not copied. This is one that they should not be able to get away with.

I prefer to have no bangs, but everyone has a different preferance. I don't like bangs, because when they sit on my face, the oils from my hair cause breakouts.

I had bangs when I was little, but I let them grow out around the first grade, and have never really had them sense. I think I prefer my own hair without. Lots of people look good with them though.

I don't like bangs, as my hair grows so fast that they would need cutting often. I wear my hair pulled back from my face most of the time to keep it out of my pond and fish tanks. Right now, its held my pins and is up, so my shoulders feel cooler.

I think that having bangs depends on your hair. Such as, my sisters had a hair cut the other day...and, now one of them has bangs and the other of course doesn't. One of them was not able to really pull off bangs because her hair naturally parted to the side, so that would just ruin her hair. And, the other had just a very little part...that we didn't even notice until we were about to cut it. But, that little part did not effect how pretty she was with bangs. With my hair though, I prefer not to have bangs. My hair also naturally parts to the side, and I like my hair style right now! I think that you look good with bangs! And, I bet that you could grow them out some more...and pull them out of your face when you wanted! :D

I prefer not to have bangs as I think I look better without them and I do not need to bother having to get them trimmed every now and then to keep them off my eyes.

It depends on my mood. I can wear bangs and I can go without them. Right now I am growing my hair out and my bangs with them. Now this time next year it could be the opposite.

I have bangs but I don't do anything special with them, as you can tell by my picture. Lol. They are just straight, and they're kind of a pain sometimes because they grow soooo fast! But oh well I deal with it. Lol.

When my hair was long, I hated the short bangs... actually any bangs. It does depend on the person, but generally speaking, bangs were a thing of the 90s. I've worked in several salons and I can tell you that if you absolutely MUST have a bang, opt for a longer one. That way, it can be swept to the side with an updo for a sleek, sexy look. It can also be pulled back with the rest of your hair in a ponytail or curled for a little texture with the rest of your hair. Blessed Be

I'm a female and I love bangs on girls & guys. For girls, I think short hair looks best and when it is, I prefer side bangs, but if a girl's hair reaches her shoulders or longer, I think having a straight, even bang makes it look nice. And for guys, I prefer side bangs, but not too long in his face.
