I have a client who likes to test me every now and then. She and I both know that bangs aren’t an option for her and then she’ll sit in my chair and mention the word “bangs.” We laugh about it, but in an exchange over chat a few weeks ago, she suggested a different type of bangs blog. One for the people who should heed warnings about bangs. The following is a short, but certainly not exhaustive, list that we came up with, which I think is a...

Hello out there! This week's Betty blog is for all my eco-conscious babies. Better yet, this is bigger than that. This goes out to everyone as it affects every living soul...

As a hairstylist, I have been doing hair now for 5 years and morally struggle with knowing how much of what I use to create beautiful hair contributes to waste that is polluting our planet. I love what I do but it truly breaks my heart. From the cellophane wrapping...

Fourth up in the bang series is the heart shaped face. While most think you must have a widows peak to have a true heart shape, the only requisites is a pointed or narrow chin and a wider forehead. This is a pretty controversial statement; also if you don’t concur, we should agree to disagree, or we can agree the upside down triangle is another way of putting it. With that said, I’ve decided to lump both face shapes into one category and call...

So you’re thinking about getting bangs! Put the scissors down. Let’s chat.

First things first, if you’ve already made the decision to change your look by adding a fringe (aka Bangs) then there’s probably no stopping you—which is totally fine! Just make sure that you’re getting them cut by a professional. Though it seems like a simple task you can do on your own, just take a second to reflect on your second grade picture when your mom...

Third up in the Bang Series is the square face. This face shape has some of the most beautiful celebrities associated with it. From Kiera Knightly to Rosario Dawson, you’re in good company if this is you! When looking for the appropriate bang, search for bangs that will soften the jawline. It has a tendency to be somewhat masculine if not done well. Here are a few of my favorites:
