Bangs: Should You Get Them?

Definitely. This quiz will tell you which bangs style is perfectly "you"

Bangs. They looked killer on Heidi Klum. You're obsessed with Taylor Momsen's. You hit pause on TiVo any time Anne Hathaway's on.

Before you reach for those scissors and hack off bangs for yourself, control your impulsive side and take this quiz. You'll figure out exactly what bangs will work best with your overall style -- and you won't have a repeat of your regrettable snap-decision Rihanna haircut. Yeah, yeah, we know, it sounded like a good idea at the time ... But maybe you should take a minute (or a quiz) before your next big, life-altering cut, just to be sure.

Once you do commit to bangs, keep these important tips in mind:

1. You'll need to trim often, so invest in your own pair of hair cutting scissors.
2. You'll need to become a pro at both blow drying them, and using bobby pins or headbands to get rid of them when they just won't work (trust us, it happens way too often).
3. Bangs bring your amazing eyes and face front and center, so get used to people staring -- fun and confidence-boosting, but a little creepy too.

Sarah Settegast (Sun, 03 Apr 2011 21:46:07 -0700): hah. that's funny, I actually have those. I had them straight across for a while but I let them grow out to the side. I did like them but I think I'm done its been a year or so...
Malkia Scott (Tue, 10 May 2011 13:19:04 -0700): I love sideswept bangs. its probably the only type of bang that I'll even consider getting. :P
Mary Murphy (Wed, 18 Jan 2012 06:33:56 -0800): It's a possibility.
Georga Clarke (Fri, 11 May 2012 14:14:35 -0700): getting a haircut tomorrow! was going to get a sideswept bang but wasn't sure so I came here!
(Wed, 13 Jun 2012 18:20:41 -0700): Not for me...I'd rather have REAL bangs!
Debra Turner (Wed, 05 Sep 2012 21:48:33 -0700): I wore bangs for several years, but will never commit to them again.
Jackie Ruth Chamness (Sun, 14 Oct 2012 02:37:01 -0700): did everyone get side swept bangs as their results?
Casey Lyn Cowart (Fri, 28 Dec 2012 20:01:48 -0800): Think I'm gonna go for the strait across bangs :/ wish me luck
Alysa Godoy (Tue, 23 Apr 2013 10:05:53 -0700): Me :)
Cary Ann Taylor Brenchley (Wed, 29 May 2013 19:59:26 -0700): Me too short straight across! Even though they recommended side swept banks. (:
Rosa Rhodes (Sun, 30 Jun 2013 17:07:21 -0700): no, i got "You'd look badass with full-blown bangs".... alRIGHTY then.. lol XD
Shreela Sen (Wed, 31 Jul 2013 10:39:21 -0700): I really enjoyed the quiz, & I think it's very well-thought out! But what is with the biking question (Q7)? LOL!
Lexii Dax (Mon, 26 Aug 2013 00:30:49 -0700): I thought they were going to ask questions like |what shape is your face, eyes, eyebrows" and what not, not questions about personality. your look doesn't make your personality and you don't have to have the right personality for a certain haircut.
April Leaton (Fri, 11 Apr 2014 17:50:49 -0700): long, face-framing bangs. Which would go just fine with me, if I had hair that went down lower than my ears...
Chantelle DarkDuchess (Mon, 09 Jun 2014 17:05:18 -0700): ...yup.
