Bangs are one of those hairstyles everyone has tried (or, at least, thought about trying) at least once. Seriously, who hasn't imagined sporting fringe à la Jane Birkin, Alexa Chung, or Michelle Obama? Oh, that's right, nobody.
And, the colder months are the best time to experiment with the 'do. It not only looks great paired with the sweaters and bowler hats of fall, but you can grow it out by the time it gets hot, so you're not stuck with sweaty hair that sticks to your forehead.
Not convinced? We've rounded up recent bangs-piration from a variety of celebrities. From baby to feathered, these looks will have you bang-banging into the room in no time. You know you want 'em.
