I’m having bang envy right now. I don’t want to cut them, because I’m worried about the summertime sweaty bang. So holding out for fall it is!
In the meantime, I thought I’d show you my bang terminology. I get a little carried away sometimes…
Block-y Bangs. I call Zooey’s bangs “Blockies” or “Block-y Bangs” because they are a big block of hair right there on your forehead. Don’t worry, this is the kind of block that is sexy and cool.
Shake-y bangs. These are similar to blockies, but they are a little messed up. They have more texture and separation and you can see forehead skin. Kate Moss perfected the shakies.
Then we have..
Curtain-y bangs. These are parted in the middle and sweep outwards like a curtain, unveiling your forehead for possibly the first time in blocky bang months. I was going to post a photo of my two Queens of curtainies…Alexa Chung and Brigitte Bardot, but I thought that would be a wee predictable. So we are going with random hot girl below! She kills the curtainies! And I miss that length of hair.
There are several bangs not mentioned. Straighties, Betties, Pointies, Featheries, Softies…
I’ll do a part two for them.
