Thick Ass Bangs: Love It or Hate It?

I am so surprised no one has said anything about this dramatic hair trend - so allow me! As a goodbye to bella who is about to launch her own Grey's Anatomy spin-off, er, I mean Sugar site spin-off; I dedicate this Love It or Hate It? to you my darling. I actually had hedge bangs a couple of years ago, but mine were a bit more retro Penelope Tree-like, i.e. the corners curved down framing the face. Some of these ladies' bangs are similar to the Penelope bang, but these are all pretty severe. While this can hide a prominent forehead I don't find this the most attractive bang. Plus, don't some of these look fake? Maybe they are bang pieces, but we know Mena's is the real deal - she was the first one here who busted out this controversial bang. What do you all it or hate it?

I personally wouldn't ever get bangs, since they do cover my forehead, but look horrible. I also think that these bangs only look good on Mena.

Kate Walsh's bangs are a piece, they're not real, she was just testing them out. They're gone now, fortunately. Love her no matter what though but her hair looks wayyyy prettier without the bangs!

Ok, I will have to give up and ad it that I'm one of those girls that went out and got bangs cut because it was the "it" thing to do and I slightly regret it! The rest of my hair is really long and I don't have layering so it looks 60's-ish and weird. It's really not my style. I think I should get layers though. That might help.

Love it, and love the way they look on me, but they're not for everyone definitelly, most of the times, if not set right way, thick bangs just cover half of face and do not look good at all

I wore these in the second grade (early 90 btw) and they were cool then but now they look dated. :/

It definitely depends on the person. I change my bangs all the time and in order to wear such thick ones, I usually have to have highlights. It makes them look less like a fake wig that way. Really thick bangs like that are great to sweep to the side in an updo!

I cant really say I like any of them at all. Too harsh for most women. And generally too long. Bettie Page bangs are one thing but these really do look like Cleopatra wigs or clip ons as alluded to in previous comments.

I think the blunt cut bangs are too severe. Side swept are much more flattering.

I think no matter who you are, it's going to make your face look weird so I don't like it. I much prefer the sideswept bangs.

I like bangs like I like pigtails, only on the 8 and under crowd. Choppy, textured side-swept bangs are another story completely.

There are face types that can wear it, and another that just doesn't.
