There comes a moment in every woman’s life when she gets bored of her haircut. Celebrity hairstyles with bangs or without can provide you with the right inspiration to suit your personal style.

Bangs hairstyles right now are all about how charmingly they’re framing and accentuating the eyes and cheekbones, while helping portray a rather soft image without having to go through too much trouble maintaining them. A blunt, heavy fringe can really make a statement. A cute side-swept fringe can lead to a really stylish haircut update.

First Lady’s bangs hairstyle

Michelle Obama’s bangs and flipped-in hairstyle manages to draw attention to her wonderful eyes and smile. Also, because her fringe is cut just below her eyebrows, extending past her arches, and rounded at the sides, it lightens up her face showing it off much more. If you want this look and you have a textured hair, use a drop of hair oil on your fringe, and then smooth your bangs from roots to ends using a round brush to straighten the bangs without bending the tips, giving your hairstyle an edgy yet chic finish.

If you can deal with obscured vision, then Jessica Szohr’s bangs hairstyle might be worth a try. Crazy-long bangs look more like endless messy layers, while the side pieces around her face are wispy and help frame her face. This style will make your hair look like a hot mess.

A blunt, heavy bangs hairstyle like Kelly Rowland’s makes a real statement. If you have long, dark colored hair, add long blunt cut bangs to your cut and your hairstyle will be even more dramatic. It draws attention to your eyes and compliments your features.

However, if you’re not ready to chop your hair to you eyebrows, and your option is a no bangs hairstyle, you can freshen up your look with a new, shorter (but not too drastic) hairstyle. Losing a few inches of hair to get a free-flowing, unstructured and easy going haircut, is a sure way to amp-up the sophistication level of an otherwise common hairstyle.
