Micro-bangs have always been the persona non grata of the fringe family. (Just take a look at the cut's history.) Save for Mia Farrow, people have shied away from trying the blunt look for years. The myth maintains that it takes a certain person to pull it off — but we're here to tell you that's not true. In fact, we'd like to make a case for the opposite argument: When done right, baby bangs can be universally flattering. Don't believe us? Maybe Emma Watson, Alison Sudol, and Bella Hadid, just to name a few, will convince you.
Ahead, we've rounded up the coolest micro-bang looks of the year so far that prove making the cut doesn't have to feel like a Groupon appointment gone wrong.
A forever fan of baby bangs, Bella Hadid manages to take the high-fashion look and make it completely wearable — that anyone could copy.
This short fringe pairs even better with a textured chop.
Yes, you can rock baby bangs with curly hair.
The perfect way to try out baby bangs: Get an equally short cut everywhere else — that way, the grow-out period will happen at the same time.
Micro-bangs are also the perfect way to show off a Cleopatra-esque cat-eye.
Imperfect bangs are making a bigger comeback than padded headbands. Ask your stylist to cut as much texture into the edges as possible for an updated spin on the look.
A few face-framing layers will make the entire cut look even fuller than before.
