First off, don't go blunt with your bangs. See how Rashida's taper? Getting bangs that frame your face helps balance your features and keep you from looking harsh. Next, don't go too thick. It can be tempting to go for big, heavy bangs, but especially if you have fine or naturally curly hair, they're a ton of work. Instead, go with quick-styling lighter bangs. Finally, choose a length that hits below your brows but above your lids for easy to manage hair; shorter and they can mat down on your forehead, longer and you'll have them in your eyes.
