With bangs or without bangs, your face looks very different. If you have a lot of hair and frizzy hair, do you look better with or without bangs? We asked hairdressers from all over Japan to answer this question.
This time, the question was, “I have frizzy hair and a lot of it. Do I look better with bangs or without?”
I am now wondering if I should cut my bangs. My hair is long enough to cover my chest, and my bangs are parted in the center at about the chin. But it doesn’t feel right. I have a lot of hair and it is frizzy. Please tell me whether it looks better with or without bangs. I usually straighten my hair with a straightening iron.
If you have frizzy hair, straightening and digital perms are the solution.
Many respondents said that even with a large amount of hair and frizzy hair, it is okay to have bangs. It seems that straightening hair makes even frizzy bangs manageable.
“If you cut the bangs a little longer and partially straighten the roots and digitally perm the ends, I think it will be easier to take care of your hair in everyday life. (Plim, Higashi-Totsuka, Kanagawa Prefecture)
Consult with your hairstylist to determine whether you look better with or without bangs.
Many respondents said that when making bangs, it is best to have your hair stylist carefully check your hair quality, face shape, and contours before deciding on a style that suits you.
There are many different shapes of bangs,” said one hairdresser. There are many different textures, and there are many different ways to make them look good together. It is important to have a hair stylist who understands your bone structure, contours, hair type, preferences, lifestyle, and clothes. (Tokyo, Shimokitazawa gally)
“It is best to choose bangs according to your concerns and the image of the woman you want to be. It is a good idea to talk to your regular hair stylist about the image of the woman you want to become and your complexes before asking him or her to choose. (Chofu DESIRE, Chofu North Exit, Tokyo)
What type of bone structure and face shape do you have? It is difficult to say for sure without seeing the width of your forehead, the height of your eyes on each side, and the way your hair grows around your face. I think it is best to ask at a salon. (ZENKO AOYAMA, Omotesando, Tokyo)
If you are unsure about cutting bangs, make a change before cutting
If you have been growing your bangs for a long time, you may often feel unsure about cutting them. In such cases, many respondents suggested cutting bangs in stages or using a wig before cutting them.
The answer was “bangs can change your impression, so why not cut your bangs in stages rather than once to the length you want? That way you can change the atmosphere and stop at that length if you don’t like it. (Osaka, Shoji Feliz)
“I recommend a bangs wig for those who are worried about getting bangs. If you cut your hair, it will take a long time to grow out, and some people regret it, so why not try wearing a bangs wig as a trial? If it is well received, then by all means, let’s cut it.” (Tokyo/Ikebukuro ekzisto)
“I recommend cutting bangs when you are 80-90% sure you want to cut them. If you are unsure or worried about what to do, or if you are feeling very anxious, there are cases where changing your bangs will not look good, so be careful! (Shimokitazawa, Tokyo / gally)
