Clip-In Bangs

Clip in bangs: Hair Do;  Nail polish: "Turquoise and Caicos" by Essie. Top: H&M
Full blunt cut bangs across the forehead are the hot hairstyle trend for spring.  They are chic, stylish and instantly draw attention to your eyes.  Wear them just below the eyebrows for a modern look, or cut above for a more retro look.  Do you want to try out the look but are afraid of the commitment?  Well, ladies, you can have your cake and eat it too with clip-in-bangs.  They are affordable, super easy to put in, and are all the "must" without the fuss.  I purchased these HairDo clip-in bangs by Ken Paves and Jessica Simpson for $29 at Ulta3.  It is good quality synthetic hair.  Other local beauty supply stores (such as Sally's) carry clip-in bangs and offer a variety of choices.  If this is a look you want to try, my advice would be to purchase 100% real human hair so it does not look so "wiggy" and cut them to suit your face so they look like they were made just for you.  I attempted to cut these myself (and I am wee bit embarrassed).  Bottom line, hair is all about having fun and expressing your personality.  If full blunt cut bangs are something that you debating on doing, I say go for it 100% and don't look back!  But, if not, clip in's are always a fun alternative.

P.S., I am SO in love with this new Essie nail polish.  The color is "Turquoise and Caicos" and I think it is going to be a super hot hue for Spring, so put it on your radar!

I love the bangs. I cut my own and then I hated the look so I just side sweep them. Maybe I should try this. Love it.

I was going to send this link to Megan from Across the Pond, but apparently she found you herself.
You are quite the smarty I must say.

I really didn't have any desire to get bangs, but they look so good on you now I kinda want them.
