"Bangs are so easy to style," said no one, ever. Sure, fringe may be the hairstyle du jour right now — mark our words: it is the new lob — but that doesn't make the cut any easier to style on the daily, especially for newbies.
No matter what type of fringe you have, or are considering getting, this on-trend cut is notoriously high maintenance — and we're not just talking about regular trims. Sorry to say, but get bangs and the days of tossing your hair into a low bun and running out the door for work in under two minutes are long gone — or at least require an additional step. And once you master your go-to look things get even worse, because it's incredibly easy to fall into a slump, blowing out your bangs the same way every single day. What's worse: giving up and resorting to a pinned-back look when you're in a rush. But not anymore.
As former and current bang owners, we feel you, but our perspective started to change throughout fashion month after we spotted Sora Choi — an up-and-coming model whose bangs have already shape shifted a myriad of times on the runway. Choi has walked in over 20 shows — and counting! — and each was a lesson in the versatility of the new "It" style.
