Want to Get a Bang Out of Life?

Rachel McAdams/
Every once in a while, a trend seems to explode onto the scene, and we see it ripple outward into not just one or two celebrity looks, but into a half dozen, then another handful, and suddenly things reach critical mass and our salon fills up with clients clutching magazines and pictures they printed from websites. If that many stars are doing it, it must be something they ought to consider, too. This time, we’re talking about Hollywood’s Big Bang Explosion.

Now, there are celebrities who experiment with styles but generally wear bangs as their signature look: Nicole Ritchie, Zooey Deschanel, Meg Ryan, Kate Moss, and Ashlee Simpson all come to mind immediately.

But literally in the past week , six very popular stars have shown up to promote their new films or at award shows with fresh fringes: Rachel McAdams, Liv Tyler, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jessica Biel (who just changed her haircolor last month), Reese Witherspoon, and Rhianna, who not only has a banging rocker shag, but a brand-new blonde haircolor to go with it!

Bangs are a fantastic way you can drastically change your look without changing your overall hairstyle, length, or hairline – that’s why these celebrities tend to inspire so many women to try cutting a fringe, too. When you see the before-and-after pictures together, you realize what a big change can be made with a minimum investment (in both money and hair sacrificed!). 

So, if you’re not ready for some of those drastic cut and haircolor changes we showed in the last post, perhaps bangs are just the right catalyst to get a bigger bang out of life.

Until next week, ciao!
